“Nice interior design and good cocktails”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We went for drinks on Friday afternoon when everyone gets there after work so it was absolutely packed. Even though it was busy, service was reasonably quick. Cocktails and wine were tasty and atmosphere/music very good. Music was a bit loud for this kind of place so it was a bit hard to have a chat. It is very good place to come for drinks after work. There is a terrace on upper level but it was closed for a private function so I am not sure how it looks like.

My husband and I liked everything about this place. The food was imaginative and delicious. The servers were helpful and attentive. The building was interesting. If I lived in Perth, I would go there all the time.

“Noisy fun”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Dinner with a largish group of business associates. Good food, attentive service though suffering from Overly Trendy Low Light Syndrome which meant the evening was punctuated by patron's smartphones being used as torches so they could read the menu.

Bigger text or more light, people!

Liked the ambience, and the food was fabulous - we ate goat for dinner and drank some great West Australian wine. This is the meaning of happiness - good friends, good food and good wine. What else does one need?!

“One of the best bars in Perth”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Tucked away at the end of a lane off Hay Street, the Stables is not the easiest place to find. It is however one of the best bars in the Perth CDB. It has a mixture of indoor / outdoor seating, casual / formal dining and a great atmosphere. As you would expect it has an extensive range of beers and wines, but for me the standout is the tapas style menu in the bar area. This is an excellent place to meet with great ambience and friendly staff.
