We live in Perth and Friends Restaurant is where we always head when we want a special night out of fine dining (most recently last night to watch the Australia Day fireworks right out the front of the restaurant). Lovely ambiance, attentive service, superb food which not only tastes great but usually also a visual masterpiece, friendly proprietors who actually do seem to care about their customers. Huge wine list but also able to get some nice wine by the glass at a reasonable price. First class hospitality!

Last night we celebrated my mum's 70th at Friends. This restaurant is not about just getting a great meal but about the whole dining experience. The food is amazing, the service is excellent and attentive, the wine list is comprehensive and affordable and the view is beautiful. It is a restaurant such that when you leave, you feel you got excellent value for money. I can't wait to return.

The restaurant offers a concert/dinner events. We went there in November 2013 for a Drifter concert. It was fantastic. This is a fine dining restaurant - both the food and the service that we got was what I expected from this restaurant. Friendly and attentive staff.

It has been over 6 years since we last visited Perth so when our small family unit of adults were looking for somewhere to celebrate Christmas Lunch we chose Friends at the Hyatt Centre because they offered a traditional Christmas three-course set menu with accompanying wines. And we weren't disappointed. Our meal was delicious, the service efficient and friendly, Santa came around handing out the bonbons and telling jokes, and towards the end of the lunch we were treated to a live performer singing carols and requests. This is a fine dining restaurant without pomposity: diners are treated as long time friends by the congenial hosts; the chef offers fresh ingredients, well cooked without being too "tricked up"; and the free flowing wines on the day were of excellent quality. We left feeling indulged and well fed - thank you Friends for making our day special.

The food is fresh, tasty. The staff know there wines which is selective in some restaurants.
The atmosphere is perfect.. Able to have a private conference and not here others. Temperature set correctly.
