“Only second visit, but equally good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

With a group of 20 to cater for, I found the food, wine and service excellent for a luncheon with a set menu which had plenty of choice. In all the years this restaraunt has been open with good reports from family and friends, it has been remiss of me to have only been twice.

“Old memories beautifully revived”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

After many years of absence, we were very impressed by todays luncheon fare. From our pleasant welcoming entry, to the familiar "older comfortable style loge seating" we were impressed. The offering of 2 menus-1 luncheon special, 1 a la carte together with 2 excellent wine lists provided selection options galore, whatever your budget. I just had to try the famous garlic prawns but the menu had the dish with chilies. No problem when requesting without chilies.
An resultant nicely sized entre serving was wonderful, just as I remembered it so many years ago. The whiting for mains with salad was perfectly presented. The table service was very good and the atmosphere created by the well patronized restaurant on a Tuesday made the experience very satisfying. My next visit will be very soon.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

We have visited the Witch's Cauldron in Subiaco many times over the years, most lately November 2013. The midweek menu of three courses for $70 is exceptional value in our opinion, not sure whether this is permanent as our most recent visit was the first time we came across it. Needless to say the food was delicious, and the service excellent. We always have garlic prawns and they have never disappointed. Gluten free options are available, and dessert was excellent.

“Average and Overated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Don't know what all the fuss is about for this restaurant. Only had mains and dessert and servings were measly. The main of Grilled gnocchi with Napoli and mild blue cheese sauce at $29.50 was entree sized - tasted good but had to order a second serving. That equals $60.00 for a main! The lobster must have been the smallest available. Desserts small with not enough sauce and thimble like serving of whipped cream. Service very poor. Had to keep leaving the table to go and find someone to bring cracked pepper grinder and get more drinks - at the prices they charge, way overpriced. Much better choices of restaurants in Subiaco - would not return.

“Unexpected lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had an unexpectedly extended lunch there today due to some misunderstandings which were cleared up straight away. Thank you very much to the Chef(s) and our waiter for everything - we were so full after it all! As regulars, this has added to our reasons of why we enjoy dining here, much appreciated =)
