Found this place while looking for a meal at 7pm on a Friday night in the city.
Greeted at the door and taken to seats. Staff were friendly, ordered drinks off the menu, they didn't have a lemon ruski in stock. hmmm but its on the menu. Water instead.
Anyway, 2 of us had lasagne and salad another a chicken burger. The meals were lovely, ample size and very flavoursome. Atmosphere was good. There were a lot of people there , a few having drinks others getting meals.

This Tavern is still owned and run by the Sassellas family. George Sassellas was granted the first Tavern Licence for Perth. Perth had very strict licensing laws in the 70's - Sunday trading was heavily restricted to sessions.....Oh the memories of those Sunday Sessions at Sassellas. Staff very attentive and food consistently of an enjoyable standard and price. Kitchen open all day until around 8pm ish. So if you get carried away sight seeing or shopping you can still pop into Sassellas at any time and get a yummy meal.

We were in Perth to go to a show,so made time to get a meal.We decided that Sassellas was the go-it has a balcony above Murray St mall and looked pleasant from the street.There was no trouble getting a table as it was only 5.30pm,but it was already bustling.They have a nice drinks menu,with a good selection of Aus. beers,wines and a few cocktails.The food menu is at the kitchen,where you order-it is not huge but good bistro fare.They guarantee your meal will be ready in 10 minutes-and it was.My husband had the battered fish,chips and salad-plenty to eat and really nicely presented.I had the chefs special of pork strips in salad.Delicious.The salad dressing was enough, without drowning the vegetables and was very morish.I saw some taasty looking satay come out as well.The view over the mall was entertaining as there was an event in Forrest Place,and the buskers were out in full force.I would recommend this bistro for a tasty meal when in town for a show or whatever-especially with the 10 min.time frame from ordering.It makes it so much easier to plan an outing or date if you have another place you need to be at a fixed time later.

Linda and I had a wonderful lunch this afternoon after attending the Titanic Exhibition at the Perth Convention Centre. Sasellas was jumping - busy, with customers coming and going at a fast rate.

I had the beef burger and Linda the chicken sticks (a regular choice for Linda). We enjoyed both very much. My burger a delight with a juicy beef patty, bacon, cheese and onion relish and the chicken sticks served with satay sauce, rice and side salad.

The service was fast, friendly and efficient. We did not have to wait for our drinks - which is always a good sign.

We have been to Sasellas many times over the years, and we will continue to keep going back

You can always enjoy the food at Sassellas. From being met at the door, to the food being placed this bistro has great service. It seems to be the only place in Perth that has worked out that people want more than one drink. The drink waiter is absolutely on the ball. The food is fresh and well prepared and I have yet to be disappointed. Children are welcome and the view from the balcony is lovely. This location feels miles away from the busy city below.
