    The food was excellent. We ordered 6 dishes for the 3 of us and that filled us up. We had several glasses of wine and they were also good. I particularly liked the Spanish wines. Good servings as well. The food was really very good. Probably my only downside was the lack of people there. Could be a covid thing??

    Everything is always great here. Loved the Broccolini with fig tapenade. The Pork Belly bites are divine. Great prices for delicious food. One of our favourite places.

    It’s great food especially the sweet corn croquettes. We also tried their beef skewers, meatballs and garlic bread. Service is good and it’s got great Spanish wines as well as Australian. Really enjoyed our lunch here

    Duende

    Thanks for letting us know of your lunch experience at Duende. We need to get back in for dinner to experience the change in ambience with soft lighting and a different feel yet again.

    My friends and I ordered the set menu, one friend has a serious nut allergy. Staff and chef were very accommodating, the food was delicious and massive serves which is always a pleasant surprise. My only criticism is that is was really hot inside with no air flow what so ever in the far right corner by the window. Apart from that delicious food, Beautiful local Pinot noir from Great Southern wine region.

    Duende

    Great having you in and our apologies for the heat element. We'll look in to that and make sure it's right for your next visit. We agree with you on the Pinot, we love these guys and their wines.

    If you have not been to Duende before, you definitely should! The food quality is quite good, serving sizes are decent for the price and even when they have a number of customers the food usually comes out relatively quickly. I highly recommend having the tapas here.

    Duende

    What great feedback. Thank you. We look forward to your next visit.

    Duende is a great little restaurant. Always great food here. Loved the new way the Pork Belly was done, our new favorite dish on the menu. Very good choice of gluten free meals.

    Duende

    Thanks for the great feedback, particularly on the pork belly. It's getting plenty of great press. We look forward to your next visit.

    Packed full of Spanish flavour- this place is an old favourite. A tad noisy so great for loud social catch-ups

    Duende

    Thanks for the great feedback. Unfortunately with a restaurant full of people catching up and enjoying themselves it can get a bit noisy and a hard one to change. We look forward to you returning to Duende again soon.

    Lovely place to have a wonderful catch up with a few friends. Food was delicious and a cheeky glass of House White for $5 was perfect. With 3 choices of Tapas for $15 or 4 for $20 it was great value for money and many delicious dishes to choose from. You won’t be disappointed and I know I’ll be back. ????

    Great feedback. Thanks and we look forward to you returning.

    Overall good however the noise levels were extremely high and difficult at times to converse.

    Duende

    Thanks for dining with us. The sound levels can be challenging at times, particularly at our busy times. Hopefully this is the sound of our guests enjoying themselves but we are conscious of Duende being a place where you can gather with friends and chat. We look forward to your next visit.

About the restaurant

A Spanish Sensation

As Perth’s first and original Spanish tapas bar, Duende has got one hell of a reputation. Since opening in 2003 this stunning venue has established itself as a neighbourhood favourite, known for its unique culinary experience which offers diners a taste of Spanish tapas culture in a warm and welcoming setting. The word ‘Duende’ essentially means ‘having soul’ and this place has got it by the bucket load.

The open kitchen is the focal point of the venue, churning out delicious Spanish bites using fresh, local produce. The menu is designed to be shared and there all kinds of tasty treats, with plenty of seafood, meat and vego options. We love the tasty chorizo that comes charred straight from the grill, the flavourful paella and the doughnut balls with condensed milk icecream.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Duende is the perfect spot for a casual coffee with your friends, a lunchtime business meeting or a family celebration - yep, this place ticks all the boxes.

Best experience: signature degustation menu.
