    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.

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

    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. ????

    The food was sensational and the service very good. The advice given on our order was well received. Big but! The wine prices were well over the top. What is it with restaurants that charge 4 or 5 times the bottle shop prices for wine? I understand that some profit needs to be made but the wine prices will stop us going back. Wake up restaurants. Your food is very good, service exceptional but these factors are not enough for us to return.

    Absolutely delicious food and flavours, generous serves for tapas. Seevice was great too. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet which is why 7 for atmosphere, perhaps because a little off busy Oxford Street but I'd call that a bonus!

    The quality and techniques used for the food are good, the service is relatively quick and the prices are value for money for the quantity and quality received. Their beef cheek dish is a must try and is, in my opinion, their best item on the menu.

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.
