    great location and setting , we had been a few times before with a good experience all round , sadly this time was like chalk and cheese - steak was not cooked properly and inediable. Service was slow and unattentive

    We ordered the chef's special menu for 6 and the service was really slow. we waited 1 hour for the mains, after we had the entrees. I asked specifically for gluten free meals but was not given gluten free entrees, despite the waiter initially confirmed their ability to cater for my requirement. They didn't even bother to get me a gluten free entree. So I had to wait for my main whilst my 5 other companions enjoyed their entrees. We arrived at 7pm, put the order in by 7.10pm and were only given main meals at 9.48pm. The desserts took forever to come out. We left at 10.30pm, not out of choice but because the service was really slow. The food wasn't great. They must have changed the chef. We've been going to Blackbird since 2016 and unfortunately won't be coming back ever again

    Although we had to wait a while for our meals. We really enjoyed our dinner. The staff was under a lot of pressure but handled it well.

    A wonderful evening at this gorgeous little place. We sat inside but you can sit out on the water. The food was delicious. We had the $49 Chefs Special Menu which was 5 courses. Could not fault a thing. Service was exceptional. Will definitely be back

    Wonderful, attentive service. The food was sensational quality. Would have liked more vegetarian options but the sole offering was faultless.

    The setting is really nice but we were the only ones there although we booked early. The menu is ok & the wine menu has enough variety to satisfy most! I have definitely had worse & would consider going back!

    The food was excellent, particularly the gnocchi. The restaurant was cosy and the waiter paid attention to detail. We went on a Sunday when there weren't too many restaurants open - will definitely go again.

    A nice little restaurant with low light that gives you a romantic feel. The calzone was good but not great. The steak was great though!

    We didn't actually get to eat anything! After 2 hours at this place, we hadn't received a thing to eat - not a crumb!! Just as well we ate cheese and crackers a bit before going to dinner or we'd have really been famished. We eventually left more than two hours after our reservation to go and get food elsewhere. Bizarre - never before had this experience in a 'restaurant '.

    Fantastic service, we did the chef's menu and waiter overheard it was a birthday and for the dessert brought out a candle on the pannacotta!

    Quality of dishes lacked the wow factor of my previous visit in October 2018 but was still good. Overall, a pleasant dining experience.

    Chose the Chef's shared 6 dish menu, and were very happy we did so. Interesting plates kept on coming, with great variety and easy to share.

    The decor and atmosphere is quite nice, and the food is relatively tasty. Some people might find the main serving sizes a bit small for the ~$30 price range.

    Blackbird has always been a favourite- the whole restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the food is always amazing. Last night the waiter was very kind and brought us the most delicious hot chocolate before we left :) Overall one of my favourite places to visit in perth.

About the restaurant

Fresh, fancy and French

East Perth has become a hot spot of cool restaurants, cafes and bars, which is a far cry from the days when it was full of factories and light industrial workshops. The gentrification of the area has seen million dollar-plus units and terraces line the river and a whole new generation of patrons are enjoying waterside dining. Blackbird Restaurant on Claisebrook Lake is one such venue and meets the high standard of its peers. Focusing on rustic European fare and quality ingredients, you can rock up for dinner and free tapas from Tuesday to Sunday or for Sunday lunch. With seasonal, table d’hote and South of France menus, there is plenty of choice. If you go for the fixed menu option, regulars recommend the piperade of paprika, capsicum, black savourine goats’ cheese and baked egg.

Best dish: Coq au vin served with Provençale rice.
