    What a fabulous restaurant, very different, food was lovely very tasty. Food very well priced but I think the cost of a bottle of wine is a bit expensive, we drank gin which was really nice.

    The service was terrible! The food was cold when it arrived (long wait between dishes) and they didn’t like the fact I asked for chilli sauce. Worst experience at a restaurant. Waiters were very rude and not helpful. I won’t be going again.

    Great selection of dishes and convenient location - went there for lunch and received super quick service, so easy to pop out for a quick lunch if you are on the run.

    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??

    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

    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.

    The restaurant was really well set & authentic. Staff were really attentive & pleasantly engaging (jovial). The service was excellent only to be matched by the food quality & great value.

    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 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.

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.
