This was my second visit to Cafe Tabou and it is just so good! The food is so much better than run of the mill restaurants without being pretentious or too formal. Just right!

We were in Perth for a concert on 17 November 2016 and came upon Cafe Tabou when looking for a pre-theatre meal. We were lucky to get a table as the restaurant was very busy. We soon found out why; everything about Cafe Tabou was terrific; interesting menu, beautifully cooked and presented food and good service: attentive but not intrusive.... More

Cafe is beautifully decorated and furnished. Staff were helpful and friendly. We chose the pre theatre option and all 4 of us had 2 beautifully presented courses of scrumptious food, finished off with a cracking chocolate cocktail. Reasonably priced given the quality of the food.

Small but friendly place with lots of French chic. Service was excellent with a pre-theatre menu . In summer there are terrace tables but in winter/Autumn it is cosy inside. Can highly recommend mussels, parfait, hake, morrocan style lamb tagine and red mullet with scallops. Desserts were also imaginative eg rhubarb & Ginger creme brûlée. A lovely meal.

Enjoyed a visit to Cafe Tabou this week. Lovely little place with pleasant staff. On booking I had advised I was vegan and asked if they could supply me with anything (usually end up with salad and chips). As I didn't get a response I ordered salald and chips when we were seated. The waitress returned from the kitchen to... More

Out with long lost friends, perfect venue and brilliant food for all. Highly recommended. Service just right, not to intrusive and never rushed even though we were last patrons on a Sunday evening. Will definitely return to sample rest of menu.
