Met my friend to a catch up lunch. Staff most obliging. I was disappointed to find their November special finished the day before. I had been to check out this place earlier. However they said the $15 special would be back in January.

While the menu isn’t extensive the food and service make up for it. The menu has probably 20 odd items plus some share items so not extensive, which isn’t always bad thing. Value for money wise, our 6 or 7 items plus 2 drinks and...More

We returned to Duende because they were pushing their Spring menu. We tried 2 of the new dishes. We each took one bite of the tortilla Espanola and left it at that. Bland and unappetizing. The Moorish lamb skewers were very average. The crispy potatoes...More

Description
Duende is Perth's first and original Spanish tapas bar. Since opening in 2003 it has continued to provide a unique culinary experience dedicated to the Spanish tapas culture with this experienced in warm, rustic surrounds. We are positioned on the fringe of vibrant Leederville in a location that could easily leave one wondering if they were in Barcelona, Seville or San Sebastian. Open for breakfast on weekends and lunch and dinner 7 days a week, Duende is the perfect location for that casual coffee catch-up, an important business meeting or a group gathering of family or friends to celebrate... well, anything. Our wine bar opens from midday with an extensive offer of local and imported wines, beers and killer cocktails.
