Knowing this place also has a great little bar area, I dropped in with a friend for a drink at 10pm on a Saturday night and was delighted to discover that we could still order some food from the restaurant menu. We had an excellent salmon dish, some oysters, a cheese platter and dessert - not bad given we called in for a drink! On the strength of this I returned with a group of 4 this month for the full dining experience. It was a great night. The food is first class; really imaginative and beautifully put together. We had a mixture of tasting plates and main courses followed by a couple of desserts (despite being already extremely well fed). Every dish was of a very high standard. The room is subdued and intimate but still has a buzz about it which is perfect for the sophisticated but not too formal food. Some of the floor staff were a bit hard to catch (backpackers I believe, charming but a bit vague, like in many Perth restaurants at the moment) but the restaurant manager was excellent and looked after us really well. Highly recommend this place as some of the best food in Perth. Although it's pricey, it is still better value than many of the newer places that have sprung up and there seems to be a genuine commitment to looking after their customers which is refreshing.

The food is amazing and the service is second to none. Recommend trying the pork belly as this was absolutely delicious.

My absolute favourite restaurant!
Fantastic service (unusual for Perth), a wine list that reads like a novel, an gorgeous intimate setting, and the food is unbelievable.
Definitely a treat, but a well deserved one. I can not wait to go back!

We and some friends had a dinner here after a long break (the service the last time was disappointing).
They were full in the main section so gave us a table in the informal area near the door.
Service was personal and brilliant once again.
instead of ordering a main course we opted for numerous tapas type dishes and shared among us.
The wine list is comprehensive and varied. Prices are up there but we expected a fine dining experience so no complaints.

The food was just brilliant. Fresh, well prepared and tasty. Each one was unique and we were well satisfied at the end.
Well worth a return and this time we will not wait as long.

We had a fantastic meal here. You can't judge it from the outside as it looks uninviting. But inside its warm, lively, interesting and the food is exceptionally good. We had lamb rump which was absolutely delicious.
