    Great food, good sized portions for a tapas place - we wound up over-ordering and taking some food home. Attentive service. The only negative experience: we were overcharged at the end of the evening to the tune of 15% of the entire bill. This was corrected once we pointed out the mistake, but still spoiled the experience somewhat.

    Duende; the food was tasty and reasonably priced, the atmosphere was relaxed and not too noisy, and the service was excellent. We felt the wine list was a little limited but otherwise an ideal spot for a casual evening with friends

    Fantastic food and service. Highly recommend! Will be coming back again soon. Their tapas menu is extensive, and is perfect for when you want to try everything but don’t want to get full too quickly!

    Past visits to Duende were all very good. This visit the food was average, service was hit and miss, got charged for a dish we did not receive. Its an odd time post COVID so perhaps staff are a greater challenge than in the past

    Today we were supposed to be in Barcelona eating tapas and drinking local wine abut not for COVID-19 Next best thing was I take my beautiful girl to a local icon for similar vibes, food and drinks No quite the same feeling as being overseas but we loved it. Gracie mille amici

    The restaurant has a great atmosphere and very good staff, it was a busy night, but we were made to feel very welcome. The food is very, very good with many selections, we have really only scratched the surface this is complimented by their local and international wine selection as well as a very interesting Gin menu. Wednesday is specials night, and we were treated to an amazing seafood paella. Well worth a second visit.

    The food and wine is amazing. The service from the waiters is wonderful. The man that greets you at the door is incredibly rude and makes you almost want to walk out.

    Services and food were wonderful. But the music is up just one decibel too high. Do not use this restaurant if you are hard of hearing or wear hearing aids. also the menu is beautifully presented but quite a small print -bring your glasses and use the flashlight on your phone in the dimmness of the restaurant. Very happy to eat here again.

    We went for their Vegan menu, sadly there wasn't many options as there was before. We love the artichokes though ♡ service is always fantastic and food is always super yummy, we were all in food comas!

    It was a good suprise for us last night! The food was soooo delicious... we had Empanadas (for me the best), Meatballs, Anchovies, Pastel de patatas and the Lamb + Patatas bravas. After had been reading few of the comments I thought that maybe we will have just small serves, but actually the portions are well served and we were very satisfaid at the end! We will come back for sure! *The only thing that I could mention is that It was a bit noisy, not sure if it was the music or just too much people talking a bit loud around us... but apart from that, everything was really nice! Food was delicious and the Staff were very friendly!

    Have dined here a few times, menu has changed but still nice choice of tapas. Service not as good on the last 2 visits, not offered sparkling, just poured still water, tried to get attention to order more dishes but staff member was on his phone ( it wasn’t busy). Good food, decent size portions and nicely presented.

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.
