The food and service at "Friends" was excellent. We were celebrating an anniversary and were surprised to an receive an unexpected acknowledgement of that from the chef. Complimentary nibbles before starters and after dessert were nice touches. Only fault is that the decor needs updating.

I've just booked Christmas Day lunch at Friends again after going there for more years than I can remember. It really is like lunch with friends the way Clyde and Lesley and staff look after us. We have some special dietary requests and Lesley and Chef go out of their way to design a menu for us. As a vegetarian it's hard to find anything but pasta and risotto in many of Perth's top restaurants but at Friends I can enjoy something different and innovative. Even with a full crowd the ambiance is nurturing and enjoyable and the service never falters. Had a few fun nights on their 'show' nights too so can recommend that as good time too. Thanks Clyde and Lesley - Christmas just wouldn't be the same without you!

Made to feel very welcome by staff and owner for a meal at lunchtime. Food was excellent, great presentation. View across the Swan River was magnificent on a fine sunny day. Background music was gentle and non-intrusive to your conversation. Highly recommended.

The third time we have been to Friends... Outstanding! My wife and I travel a lot, and love to experience gourmet in all it's expressions. Friends is a standout in Perth, with impeccable service, traditional ambience, and Michelin star food. The owners are personable and involved, from the food to the wine and beyond. Friends illustrates the key dual principle of industrious and meticulous behind the scenes preparation of locally sourced gourmet produce, coupled with a seamless, timely and assured front of house, full koudos are in order. The whole experience makes you feel immersed in the very essence of gourmet, breathing it in with each mouthful. Thank you Friends, we will be back to celebrate good food with you again soon.

From the minute we walked in the door until leaving, we were made to feel nothing, but welcome. Nothing was too much for the staff , food was good to look at but the taste was fabulous. Attention to detail was fantastic , down to decanting the wine, and the amazing petite fours with our coffee.When i was unable to make a selection with the petite fours as they all looked amazing i was invited to have all of them. Lucky me as they were divine. Thank you Friends Restaurant i shall return!!!!
