Everything about this place is perfect. The location, the service, the wine list and ever- changing menu- i don't know where to start! I've been to Blackbird on many occasions, most recently for a work xmas function, and as always we were greeted with a smile from our friendly and helpful waiter. The menu changes very often, it is small and simple but yet with enough choice to suit whether you are vegetarian, celiac, paleo, or have any special requirements. The food is full of flavour, decent size serves and made with good quality ingredients. Your wine/water glass is never empty, the venue isn't too big or noisy- perfect for a one-on-one date or dinner on any occasion. My favorite part of the meal would have to be desert- not too many choices but rich and decadent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner, and will certainly be back again soon!

We were wanting to have dinner with old friends, somewhere close to where we were staying in East Perth.
I had always wanted to try Blackbird restaurant and this was the perfect opportunity.
It was a cool evening and so we dined inside and from the moment of our arrival, until we departed a few hours later, the staff looked after us exceptionally well...even better, our meals were very good. Many gave one another a taste of their main, we were so impressed.
I am looking forward to returning again when we are next back in Perth. Blackbird restaurant is a real treat, we should long ago have sampled.
Thanks for a great evening.

Five of us dined at Blackbird on Friday, 18 March.
We started with entrees of crumbed scallops with salsa and Angus steak tartare with various condiments. Deliciousness all round. I had the steak tartare. For lovers of raw meat, I would highly recommend this one. It came with shoestring fries, which I'm sure must have been deluxe, as my friends ate them all.
Our mains also brought cries of delight from everyone. Everyone buy me had the barramundi and all were totally pleased with their choice.
I had the grilled free range chicken served on a bed of couscous, chorizo, corn and tomatoes. All these ingredients blended to create a real taste sensation. I also was totally pleased with my choice.
Our waitress (a German girl) was so friendly and helpful, giving us suggestions and tastings of wines and more than willing to help us with our choices, both for food and wine.
The restaurant is set on the edge of a man made lake, on a terrace. It was peaceful, even outside where we sat as it was such a lovely night. Inside looked cosy and inviting.
I really couldn't fault this restaurant. By Perth standards, it is outstanding. It is not often in Perth you walk away from a restaurant, happy with the whole experience - the food, wine, service, setting and price.
I look forward to a second visit.

Female owner is young and vibrant and well trained. Service was outstanding, they knew their wines and could explain them well to help me choose, they poured the wine every time at just the right moment. Not many restaurants offer that level of service in Perth for this price. Restaurant overlooks a lake in East Perth and inside has a cosy ambience. I suggest you book cos the restaurant is small and this adds to its attraction. The food was sensational. We had three courses with some sides, all were amazing, with a bottle of wine for 2 of us for $200. There was none of the usual feelings you get once you've finished your main to hurry up now and go cos they want to seat other guests in your seat. None of that, we felt like we could've sat there all night. It was a special occasion and this restaurant really made it memorable. My husband & I dine out alot so when we find something special I want to share it with people.
