    Nine ladies went to the Happy Hour with six of us staying on for Dinner. The service was good and friendly and the food was great. Being a fine evening we dined outside and enjoyed the lake view. Everyone agreed it was a most enjoyable evening and will be back soon.

    Disappointing. Valentine's day booking. Service was dysfunctional. Waiters confused as to which dish we were served or not. Drinks not served until 3rd course. (Mains) Tables were sticky. Cutlery was not replaced, we had to clean it ourselves between courses. Food took in excess of 20 minutes hiatus at a time. Mosquitoes outside. Value for money for a Valentine's day special was appalling ($150/2ppl). By far the worst Valentine's day special we have had our whole lives... The second appetizer was made with simple and cheap/random, uninventive ingredients. Included a sakata/Fantastic type cracker.... happy to provide photos. Just not worth it.

    We arrived 5 minutes earlier. We waited at least 20 minutes to get the food and drink menu, then another 25 to receive the 2 Gin&tonics we ordered. The poach pear salad is nothing as promised, flat pear socked in wine, with supermarket ruccola and 2 boconccinis split in half, very poor. Ordered the beef sirloin, medium-well, came red and I stud myself to bringing back to the kitchen. I said no fries, but they were added. The biggest shock were the mushrooms that clearly came from a can and were just tossed with few herbs. I had about 30 years that I did see a restaurant serving that rather than fresh ones which one can find anywhere today. They claim to be European, The food was horrible, they don’t have enough staffs, and the service was the slowest ever. Nothing to compare to how the website looks. Final touch: a real mouse (rat) that visits the tables outside, everyone was looking at it, seems to come from outside as the river is in front.

    When we arrived bookings didn’t matter so they put two tables together, luckily there were tables available..The waiter and waitress were very slow at serving drinks. Our food took forever to cook and the medium- rare was well done! Not well done to the staff though!

    Even though the restaurant was not busy The service was slow both for taking the order and delivering the food. The starter was good but the duck was very overdone. Poor

    Really enjoyed the setting and the feel of the restaurant, perfect for a intimate date night with my wife. Portion sizes were quite large and were good value for money. The mains were a bit fattier than perhaps was necessary so I would recommend trimming excess fat where possible, but that's my taste and others will disagree. The chocolate mousse was absolutely heavenly, very silky and smooth! Blackbird is definitely going onto our list of date night spots for the future. From a menu planning point of view, I would suggest reconsidering some dishes on the menu purely based on the advertising of Blackbird as a French restaurant. A calzone, while definitely a favourite and a filling choice, is Italian rather than French. Granted, this is semantics, but it contributes to the overall effect. But otherwise, amazing restaurant, we will definitely be back for more chocolate mousse!

    Pleasant location in the East Perth village overlooking the lake or brook with bird life. Alfresco dining available for those who prefer to dine out doors.

    Nice to be able to enjoy proper French dishes in a smart restaurant with a lovely location with a choice of outdoor seating facing the water. Like the smart attire of the waiters/waitress & their politeness, however the service was slow. Will return for French cuisine!

    We opted for a table outside by the window, loved the setting - very quaint & romantic on a Thurs night. Beef rib was delicious (if you're not after anything too substantial), duck was ok.

    Our evening at Blackbird was simply delightful! We were greeted with enthusiasm and given a choice of tables. When seated our hostess immediately brought water and an ice bucket for our white wine and replaced a glass she noticed that had a mark on it - very professional. The food was tasty and served promptly. Atmosphere was special, really had a Parisian Bistro vibe - thank you Blackbird we will return.

    I really enjoyed my meal. Food was well cooked and presented . The restaurant has an alfresco dining area overlooking the lake . With the warmer weather arriving it would be pleasant to dine outdoors with protection of the overhead canopy. I had a special request for the way my main course was prepared and it arrived 'spot on'. The hostess on duty was very welcoming and provided attentive service.

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.
