My partner and I took my Mum to 1907 for her 60th birthday recently. We have had the pleasure of doing the full degustation with matched wines at 1907 last year and it was divine, and thought that a petit degustation might be on the cards as we didn't want to be REALLY full like last time.
Still, the petit degustation is a great feed, 8 courses of carefully prepared and presented food that delights the senses. There's a bunch of foods you may never have tried and some old favourites done really well. The cherry dessert was a highlight, and the yabbie in spinach soup was really tasty. While the individual dishes might not seem like much and could be scoffed in a few big mouthfuls, they have really taken the time to prepare each element and if you savour the taste, texture and smell of each element then I think you'll enjoy it more.
This is not a meal for those who want to pay twenty bucks for a steak and feel really full. It's for those that delight in the different, refined and refreshing tastes that are put on show by the Chefs.
It's not all about the food though, the wait staff had personality and humour, and the little touches like admitting when they didn't know something (they're only human!), finding out extra information for us when asked about the region, and bringing my Mum's dessert out with a candle and singing happy birthday.
This is my favourite restaurant for degustation in Perth so far, though I'm yet to try Opus and Friends.
This place is hard to find but it's worth discovering with friends!
