    Fish and steak choices tasty and well cooked and presented. Extensive wine list. Noisy. Service only average. Pavlova dessert mediocre. Hard meringue.

    Mist food was as always simply brilliant. Our run of going to a wine specialist and ordering the wine that is unavailable continued (4 visits in a row now). Service was good but not normal, seemed a bit rushed. Overall a really good meal. Never disappoints

    Excellent food as always. Ordered the crumbed shark bay squid, cauliflower fritters, pork croquettes and angel hair crab pasta. Service was slightly slow given it was quiet during lunch.

    The food here is amazing! I highly recommend the Oysters Natural - Sriracha Lime Dressing and the Arkady Lamb Plate, easily the best lamb I’ve ever eaten. I am looking forward to my next visit.

    For my wife and I as diners we found the music a bit too loud and a bit too energetic

    Exquisite food as usual. A few menu items changed, but good to see the angel hair pasta still there. Lovely service and atmosphere. Will of course return soon.

    Fabulous food and service. Drinks are a little pricey but if you don’t go overboard it’s a winner.

    Haven't been to Must in years but heard they've revamped and it's great. Friday lunch special of small fillet steak was delicious and good value at $15. Also couple of wines at $5 a glass. Lots of delectable sounding things on the menu so will be back another time - they also have croquettes and G&T specials Friday nights

    Charcuterie plate was divine, which left us no room for dessert after mains ... will just have to go back! Excellent service too!

About the restaurant

It’s a must.

One thing’s for certain, Must Winebar is a must-visit for wine lovers in Perth. This modern wine bar boasts an excellent wine list (as you’d expect) that has kept it at the pinnacle of Perth’s bar scene since 2001.What drives the buzz for wine enthusiasts is its wine list is regularly changing with a challenging, diverse collection of wines from all parts of the world – served by the glass. They are rarely familiar and always tantalising: an alluring white from the Beeka Valley; a rosé from Montsant; a chardonnay viognier from Chile; a vermentino from Sardinia...should we go on? But it’s not all about wine, there’s impressive beer selections for the blokes, cocktails and spirits a plenty that will satisfy even the most fussy palates, very good bar food, delicious bistro meals and an atmospheric buzz to the place. What’s more, the upstairs Champagne Bar adds an extra dimension to dining. It’s intimate and offers five different styles of Champagne by the glass, and the most outstanding list in town by the bottle. We told you this was a must.

Best dish (or should it be wine?): chicken liver parfait
