Unfortunately the service we had from the waitstaff was non attentive and slow; it took a while to get anyone's attention so that we could a bottle of wine. I was really looking forward to the smell and taste of the truffle, but unfortunately there was little or or no taste, even though there were generous portions. This leads me... More

After spending our 40th wedding anniversary in Paris last year we decided this year to reminisce by having lunch to celebrate our 41st anniversary at Bistro des Artistes in Subiaco. We had never been to the Loose Box, but knew of Alain's reputation and the reviews sounded good so we gave it a try. On arriving the interior decor certainly... More

Taken to Bistro des Artistes fro birthday dinner, on happy memories of previous dinner at "Loose Box: some years back. Night started well with nice entree and not being rushed by staff to be fed and got moving. A pleasant change to a number of other up market restaurants in Perth. Unfortunately that is when it all "turned to custard".... More

French onion soup was beautiful and well balanced. My partners beef cheek and the amuse bouchée were excellent. Let down by the snails. Didn't match the description, were dry and pastry felt old.

I'm french and i was looking for french service and cuisine... The service was horrible, very messy, note very efficient, we waited a long time between each meal! The choices in courses was very little and the cuisine was barely eatable. I had fish, it was covered in oïl and i barely had a side.. was supposed to be risotto... More

The central location in Subiaco makes this a neighbourhood gem. Simple French bistro style food. Lovely ambience and good service.

Evening stated well with a Pigs Trotter dish, albeit it was not hot through out. It went down hill with a Fillet Steak that was more like a Rump Steak and a quite dry Lamb Shank with little sauce. Creme Brûlée was quite nice although not great. Service was quite good but again a little off here and there. Don't... More

Being a Loose Box fan of years gone by I was very disappointed with the quality, taste & value for money experience.
