    We enjoyed the 6 course degustation with matched wines. Excellent, knowledgable and engaging service from Gio. Food was generally good, but a couple of misses where the main feature of the dishes (e.g. lamb shoulder) were slightly overpowered by the garnishes. It's a beautiful venue but our view of the gardens was completely obscured by a marquee erected for a future function. Made us feel that Lamonts is more for functions than diners seeking a romantic, fine dining experience. I do get it, as that's where the money is these days. I had hoped to give a 10, but no, not quite.

    Searched for a nice restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday and this place did not disappoint. Loved the service, ambience and food. We enjoyed the evening. Would recommend this restaurant to my friends.

    We have dined at all of Lamont's restaurants over the past 20 years or so and have always found the experience most agreeable. We were impressed by the quality of the food and service when we dined at Bishop's house in June 2018. That said, last night, the quality of the service was sub-standard (the wait staff were disinterested) and my wife's main course (fish), was overcooked and dry. We arrived at 8 pm and were finished by 9:15 pm: hardly what one would expect for a fine dining experience. The venue was overflowing with large parties of people at Christmas functions. Obviously, large groups and intimate dining for couples are mutually exclusive. Overall we were very disappointed and are unlikely to give this restaurant another chance.

    Nice place, a tad overpriced for the quality but enjoyable none the less. A bit hard to locate the entrance!

    If you are wanting to have a drink of something other than wine/beer before a meal their cocktail list is limited but they do have some to choose. Meal was exceptional and loved the new idea of all side dishes being included with the meal. There were three of us and we had 4 sides to share between us and they all complimented our meals beautifully. Desserts to die for. Service was great but there were only three tables in the restaurant so not sure how it would be with a full restaurant. The building is gorgeous and full of old world charm. I think the outdoor balcony setting on a balmy evening would be superb.

    Why do lovely restaurants such as this insist on playing awful modern music? If any needed at all surely a subtle classical background would suffice? Saying that, the staff were quick to turn off (when i requested it be turned down) so i was very happy with the outcome. I must also add that this is a complaint i often experience in fine dining establishments all over the world so certainly not unusual. Other than that, i found Lamonts almost perfect in every way - food, wine, service, building - and will certainly be recommending it highly to others and also returning in the near future.

    Great friendly service with a smile, with good advice on menu and wine selection. The Angus steak (med/rare) was beautifully cooked and so tender - the best steak we have had for a while. The wine selection, while not extensive, highlighted some good quality West Australian wine. A nice laid-back atmosphere that allowed one to comfortably converse with their partner. We really enjoyed our evening and will be back.

About the restaurant

Bless My Tastebuds!

Choose your table in one of the lovely old customised dining rooms in a house that still holds the atmosphere of 120 years of history. Or sit outside in the private open-air courtyard overlooking the lovely heritage listed gardens. It really is hard to believe that you’re right in the middle of the city. You can just pop in for a drink after work, or stay for splendid à la carte cuisine. It’s hard to go past the degustation menu which changes regularly but always offers an exciting variety of exquisite contemporary delights. European and Asian influences with a modern contemporary flair. The service is smart and efficient and the wine list, as you would expect at a Lamont’s restaurant, is impressive.

Lamonts Bishops House is located on the corner of Spring Street & Mounts Bay Road, entrance on Spring St

Best Dish: Snapper with roasted garlic & rouille
