“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This is a first class silver service restaurant and fine dining experience. We would say probably one of the best dining experiences in Perth. Our choices were roasted young duck and Kangaroo loin fillet – both were absolutely delicious. The wine list is very comprehensive and impressive. Presentation of plates and service were both excellent. Friends has a perfect location overlooking the Swan River, and was within easy walking distance of our hotel. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Perth.

“Truly deserve Number 1 spot”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We purchased a Scoopon voucher for the 5 course Truffle Tasting menu and booked a table immediately over the phone. First impression, friendly, helpful and cheerful telephone manner. On the night, when entering the restaurant, we were greeted by lovely staff and promptly seated and attended to. Our food was delivered to our table at just the right intervals between courses. Water glasses were never left empty. The staff were all fantastic at their job, efficient, friendly, helpful and accommodating through the whole night. The decor is just beautiful and added a little magic to the evening. Lastly - the food - Awesome!!! All courses were wonderful, very very tasty and quite filling,
More than not voucher customers at other restaurants we have tried are treated to the worst table and worst manners from staff, but here at Friends we were treated as all customers were treated and we had a great time. Judging by the standard or our food, Friends Restaurant has a great chef, I can't speak highly enough of the flavors of the food.

“A birthday surprise meal for my daughter.”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Although I didn't experience the meal myself; I bought a tasting menu (with wine) meal for my daughter and her fiancée as a surprise gift and the restaurant were very helpful with the booking and followed my instructions exactly. They both enjoyed a very good and memorable evening. The staff were attentive and the food was amazing.

“5 course Wonderful truffle degustation”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

Bought the scoopon voucher for the 5course degustation and it was well worth it! Spent the night with the hubby and our first time to try truffle and by golly was it good! Clyde and Lesley were amazing hosts, from the time we book the table to the time we left, we felt that they took time to look after us.

No wonder it's the best restaurant in Perth! Will definitely watch out for more scoopons! Will recommend to friends and family!

Recommended for a romantic dinner or catch up with friends. Go ahead, book a table, you know you want to! :)

“Friends with Benefits!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

My wife and I experienced an evening of wonderful ambiance, excellent service and fantastic food at Friends restaurant in the Perth last Saturday. Although Friends is in the Hyatt Regency Centre, it isn't actually part of the Hyatt, which was a surprise to us.

What was also a surprise was after spending so many years in Perth that we've never tried Friends before... If you haven't tried it either we thoroughly recommend this venue for a special occasion of simply a meal out with loved ones and or friends.
