Been nearly 2 years since I've been here - glad to say the food and service is as good as I remember it. I'll make sure to return more often.

St Michael 6003


Dwayne dined on Sat, 5th Aug 2017 (10)

Couldn't fault the service! Food was exquisite! Would love to return.

Cott & Co. Fish Bar


Dwayne dined on Sun, 25th Jun 2017 (7)

Friendly and attentive service, even though the restaurant appeared a little short-staffed for a Sunday night (this is typical of most establishments). Al-a-carte menu is limited - this is because they prepare dishes according to what's in season and what's fresh, so there's a lot of chalkboard menu items. Food was generally nicely prepared and tasty. May steer clear of the smoked buffalo mozzarella - while the cheese quality is excellent, whatever it was smoked with was not palatable.

Miss Kitty's Saloon


Dwayne dined on Sun, 26th Mar 2017 (8)

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with friends. New menu is great. Will return.

Zia's Cafe Bar and Restaurant

North Perth

Dwayne dined on Fri, 17th Mar 2017 (8)

Meals were delicious - the reef and beef in particular was fantastic. Seemed a bit quiet for a Friday night; hope business picks up a bit as it's a great place for romantic dinners. Will return soon

Toledo Lounge

Victoria Park

Dwayne dined on Sat, 11th Mar 2017 (8)

Food quality and portions (for tapas) was excellent. Loved the mocktails too. However there were few customers on a Saturday night when we dined. I put this to the location as it's not in the heart of the Vic Park restaurant scene. Service was slow to begin with but got better as the night went on. Hopefully business picks up - we'll happily return.

Chiquis Tapas


Dwayne dined on Sun, 30th Oct 2016 (6)

Place has some stiff Tex-Mex competition with Guzman y Gomez and Zambrero around the corner. Atmosphere is great. Hardcore tequila selection behind the bar. Food was hit-and-miss - chorizo was bland, jalapeno poppers average, quesadilla was good, chili con queso great, el toro steak excellent. Churros for dessert were a little below par; oil was too hot resulting in dark and overcooked on outside, undercooked inside. Overall, great party atmosphere and the service is attentive and friendly, but the food doesn't distinguish itself much from its nearby cookie-cutter competition.

Mouthful Duck


Dwayne dined on Fri, 9th Sep 2016 (9)

Great place, every dish was exquisite. Asian fusion dining at its best in Ellenbrook of all places. We'll be regular diners from now on



Dwayne dined on Sun, 4th Sep 2016 (9)

Been dining at Jezebelle for over 5 years. It's still our favourite local weekend breakfast place. Keep up the good work.

Emporium Bistro


Dwayne dined on Sat, 30th Apr 2016 (9)

Staying in Donnybrook while visiting relatives and decided to drive 60km to Bridgetown to have a nice meal (those who either live or visit Donnybrook regularly will know decent dining options in town are practically non-existent). Place didn't disappoint and well worth the drive. Friendly, very attentive service - genuinely wanted you to enjoy your dining experience. Generous serving portions - main course sirloin with truffle butter was exquisite. Vegetarian options are also excellent.

Fantastic service as always. My favourite restaurant in Guildford.

Sunday breakfast: Coffee is superb. Service is okay - friendly but not quick (management is reluctant to staff adequately on Sunday I suspect). The food was okay. But the main disappointment was that there are no menu options for kids or even the option of small portions for breakfast meals. This is unlike their lunch and dinner menus. I probably wouldn't return with family unless this was addressed - there are many other places in Fremantle that better cater for kids.

Whenever visiting Busselton we almosy always have a meal at Stilts. Always a pleasure!

Mojo's Restaurant


Dwayne dined on Sat, 19th Sep 2015 (7)

Very friendly and attentive service. We had a table tucked away in a corner, but we weren't forgotten by the wait staff. Tapas style entrées were okay, but the mains were excellent.

Wild Swan at Mandoon Estate


Dwayne dined on Sun, 30th Aug 2015 (8)

Note, review is for Homestead Brewery weekend breakfast. Very attentive and friendly staff. Particular focus on young children, who are offered special attention from wait staff as well as colouring books. Breakfast fare is very reasonably priced considering the setting and quality of food. Coffee is a little expensive, though. There's also a playground for young children.

Sentinel Bar and Grill


Dwayne dined on Fri, 12th Jun 2015 (7)

It didn't start well - we booked and arrived on time but it took 15 minutes to prepare a table for us. Initially, a table was offered inside, but the level of noise from other diners was so great it would've been impossible to have a conversation. We were offered a table outside instead, which was much quieter. This wasn't the reason for the delay in showing us to our table, though - simply put the restaurant wasn't prepared for us despite our booking. From there, fortunately, service improved considerably; friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Tapas starter menu items are quite generous serves. Main courses (steak) were cooked to our liking and well presented. The place is popular with CBD exec types on a Friday night. For a romantic evening dinner for two it's probably not the best choice (unless you both work in the vicinity), but we enjoyed the food and atmosphere and would come back again.

Busy night, yet service was attentive and friendly. Excellent main courses (scotch fillet highly recommended). Good atmosphere - one could actually have a conversation without raising voices even though the place was nearly at capacity (for indoor seating). Very good value by Busselton/Margaret River standards.

When we can manage to get grandparents to babysit (which isn't often) we more often than not find ourselves at Jezebelle for dinner. Great food and service. The portions are more filling and satisfying then they first appear. I haven't had an average meal or worse there yet!
