We went to The Opus to celebrate an anniversary, and were rewarded from the minute we arrived. The staff were courteous and always seemed to be anticipating our every need.
Decor is understated but elegant. Classic crisp white tableclothes and comfortable. No loud music and space between the tables.
And, then, there was the food. Again, traditional fare done to perfection. The menu is short and to the point, which is kind of assuring. My wife had lamb and described it as the best she'd ever had. I went with fish of the day, grilled snapper, and it was excellent. Sweets, again, was a limited list but both our choices were delicious.
It is expensive, but worth it. If you want a special night out, this is the place.
Only complaint? We have different tastes in wine and prefer to go by the glass, and that list was much more limited that the wine by the bottle menu.

Great experience from start to finish. The restaurant is located in a boutique hotel and it does have a vaguely "hotel" feel to it. However, don't let that put you off. We arrived first and were invited to sit near the bar for a pre dinner drink. Our guests arrived a few minutes later and were offered the same thing. We were invited into the dining room and presented with menus. Delight all round at the choices. Three courses later, and not one criticism. Service by a largely French staff ( mystery to a Melburnian - why are so many restaurant staff in Perth from France?!) was impeccable. Nationality is not relevant of course, but the accents are lovely (!) We had ordered side dishes of vegetables. The wrong ones were brought and when we queried this, the waiter apologised, said he would fetch the correct dish and asked us to also accept the first dish with the compliments of the chef. You can always forgive a mistake if the rectification is faultless. The four of us had three courses, coffee, pre dinner drinks and one bottle of wine - total cost approx $650. This is a fabulous restaurant for special occasions or a bit of a splurge. We all loved it and are looking forward to an excuse to come back. Bravo.

Not a cheap restaurant but it is certainly a great one. Impressive menu, wine list, food and service. I have been there a number of times over the years and it has never left me unimpressed. My favourite fine dining restaurant.

Expensive? Very! However, we had a great night at Opus on Easter Saturday. Apart from a slightly odd greeting when I advised my name on arrival 'Yes, that will be alright' instead of 'Welcome Mr X' or 'Welcome to Opus, we look forward to looking after your every need', the service was exemplary. This alone was worth paying for after much of the surly and haphazard service I have experienced in Perth since moving here a few months ago. From start to finish we were well attended to without being rushed. We engaged in some wonderful conversation about all sorts of things with the multi-cultural waiting staff who gave us some great insights into their experiences around the world and the excellent wine list.
After sipping on two very well made cocktails we moved to the dining room. The decor and lighting was calming with a sort of art deco meets modern mix. Conversation was easy due to good acoustics.
We had the degustation. Each course, with the exception of dessert, was interesting, well presented and tasteful. We took the matching wines option and the selection was done well.
Overall, we had a great night and would recommend Opus for a special occasion.

My wife and I together with family celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Opus and was our first experience at this restaurant. Needless to say that this is not to be the only visit.
The service was impeccable, the food exquisitely served and more importantly absolutely delicious.
A faultless performance at this venue from the moment you enter. From the cocktail bar and onwards the staff are truly warm, friendly and good at caring for customers.
