“Uninspiring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Four colleagues dined at Chanterelle based on a recommendation that it was one of the best seafood restaurants in Perth. It was not. The seafood was dull and disappointing. Service best described as homely. General atmosphere old and in need of revitalizing. Perth has many restaurants that are streets ahead in terms of quality of ingredients and cooking

“Very bad expereince (food, price, service)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

My husband and I were celebrating our 2 years anniversary and really wanted to have a fine dinner and get a seafood platter.
As a starter, we had a garlic bread, which was not too bad, and the garlic creamy sauce mussels which was wattery and lack of taste.
Then we ordered the seafood platter and it was disastrous. The 3 pieces of fish (salmon, tuna, white fish) were very dry, the oysters didnt taste fresh, the cray fish was undercook, the same as the scallops (i love scallops but i could eat only one), and the squids overcooked and chewy. The mussels and chips were good.
Concerning the drink, i had one glass of semillon sauvignon blanc which was flat and not good at all, the taste of the wine which has been opened too long.
When we came back home after that, i started to feel sick and few hours later my husband was sick too, so without a doubt, we knew it was from the food!!
We were very disappointed and annoyed that we were so keen to celebrate our anniversary but at the end we paid in total $200.50 to be sick and not enjoying the rest of the evening.
I think there is almost everything to change at this restaurant: the decoration, the service, the prices and the cook.
Hope for them that they will take in consideration our complains to make this place better for the furure customers.
For sure, we will never go back there!!

Loved the food, the service, the wine list & view. Price is high but not too bad for Perth.

“Complete let-down...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

I didn't enjoy my experience at all...the food was ordinary, the service poor. My main course was served 20 minutes after everyone else's and the staff were jaw-droppingly rude. None of us will ever go back there again.

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

I'm afraid we were all violently sick following our recent visit.
I thought the atmosphere was ordinary, just a big room with tables
