“Perfect high tea!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Being a bit of a high tea addict, on my trip to Perth I decided to find somewhere for high tea. The George is centrally located on St. George's Terrace and although unassuming from the outside, on entry you are in a fabulous space.

The high tea incorporated a three tier serving platter along with a side plate of the best scones I've had for a long time. Although a high tea fan, scones usually don't thrill me, but these were light and delicious. A combination of savoury and sweet treats made for a perfect balance.

Our waitress was friendly, helpful and delightful. A great afternoon and highly recommended to visitors and residents of Perth!

“Great value for a special night out”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Booked a table for 7 for a celebratory event. The original table that we were given was very noisy due to another large party, but the staff were very accommodating and arranged a table in a quieter area. The menu offered a great selection of meals at pub prices but restaurant quality. We all enjoyed ourselves greatly and were very pleasantly surprised by the final bill. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

“High Tea”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Took my son for a Mother's Day treat. We were in the first sitting for the day at 11:30. The place was fully booked. We had to wait ages for service but to be fair everyone wanted food and drinks at the same time.
The food was nice and there was plenty of it - we couldn't finish ours.
They had a jazz singer to entertain us which was a nice idea.
My son thought is was amazingly posh lol
I think that next year they need to get their timing far more organized - waiting half an hour for a glass of champagne and almost 45 minutes for our tray of goodies is a bit much.

“Interesting menu”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

WE walked into this restaraunt without a booking and they were very happy to accommodate us.
The waitress was a delight!
The seating was a concern as the chairs are very high and for short people they are quite a challenge.
The wine list was good and we chose a nice bottle of cloudy bay. The wine glasses are a very unusual shape and were so nice I would have liked to purchase my own set.

Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Patagonian tooth fish was on the menu and received positive reports. The salmon was great and I understand the lamb was fine. I quite enjoyed the evening here apart from the un dignified attempt to climb on to the seat.
I would eat here again.
The price was not too bad for Perth.

“loved the lunch special”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

We had their lunch special which for an extra $5 included a drink. As soon as we were greeted we knew we'd enjoy this restaurant. We shared an entrée to start and then both had their specials and finished off with a desert. All three course were innovative and showed quality. At the time we were there the place was well attended without being too noisy. Highly recommended.
