It was a quiet Autumn Monday and Red Herring on the river was the choice. We had enjoyed dinner there a year before when visiting Perth. This year there were four adults and a one year old requiring a high chair. Parking was most convenient, the service friendly and culinary advice was honest and informative.We each had two courses as decions were difficult and we wanted to taste as much local seafood as we could . The chosen dishes were greeted warmly.One was definitely the dish of the day and that was the soft shelled crab,wonderfully crisp and seasoned. On advice a semillon sav blanc (2 bottles) from the Abany area accompanied the courses. The one year old had plenty to amuse her with birds, fish, dolphins and small boats passing by. The adults, of course were agreed that it was indeed a most conducive lunch. When visiting Perth we will definitely make a booking at Red Herring once more.

I went to a function at this venue. The over water location had great views of the nearby boat traffic, and just a fantastic atmosphere. The staff could not be more helpful, and the food was fantastic. I was looking at the water in a break from the conference, and saw dolphins gracefully gliding past the venue, right there, it was amazing. I would recommend this location to anyone.

I had taken my wife out for dinner on her birthday and booked the Red Herring because the web menu showed Crayfish, guess what, they don't do Crayfish. Apart from this issue, the food was very good, the location picturesque and the staff very friendly. We would recommend the Red Herring as a place to eat.

Dined here twice so far for dinner. Generous & really tasty entrees (we ordered the squid entree & octopus salad entree...probably should have just ordered 1 entree between two because we started to get a bit full by the time our mains came around). Luckily our waiter discouraged us from ordering another side dish!

Plenty of free parking & nice to go for a stroll by the water before or after the meal.
