My husband and I had Calamari pepper & squid, Pork Croquette(korokke), Chicken Tacos, Seafood Paella and Dates Pudding as dessert.

Nice place can be expensive but good quality. Service was good. Good place to eat Indian food.

Heirloom Restaurant & Bar

East Perth

Makiko dined on Thu, 11th Jan 2018 (8)

Standard menu done high level. Sweet potato chips were great. It was hard to find the restaurant so it would be good if there was a sign outside.

Fillaudeau's Cafe Restaurant


Makiko dined on Fri, 28th Jul 2017 (8)

Very good French bistro food. Really enjoyed pork pate, steaks, crepe szette and creme brulee. Nice outdoor area if you dining at lunch, good wines from Pinelli which is next door. Good service and good decor. Not cheap but good French food.

Black Swan Winery and Restaurant

Henley Brook

Makiko dined on Fri, 28th Jul 2017 (8)

Nice vineyard lunch with an excellent shiraz and tasting available. Lots of competition for them but is a nice place with a good view over the vines and a good chef in the kitchen. Duck and pork belly almost a little dry otherwise close to what you want. You only get four free tastes of wine if you are dining and I would prefer to be able to try more of the wines available.

The Best Brew Bar & Kitchen


Makiko dined on Thu, 27th Jul 2017 (7)

It is a bar attached to the 4 points Sheraton Hotel. Food is good quality pub food and live music on Thursday is good. Good place for a drink and a meal before crossing the road to Perth Arena. Staff were friendly and drinks are not expensive.

El Grotto Bar and Taqueria


Makiko dined on Sun, 9th Jul 2017 (9)

Service was great and food was excellent! I was not a big fan of Mexican food and lamb food but I had my second help of lamb tacos and char grilled corns. They were so delicious and I wanted to have more! I can say one of the best Mexican restaurants in Perth!


East Perth

Makiko dined on Sun, 11th Jun 2017 (10)

My husband and I had great lunch with a beautiful view. The big water fountain is in front of the restaurant and we saw black swans with cygnets. We had 'Corn et cheddar croquette' and 'Twice baked cheese soufflé' as entree. 'Slow-roasted pork belly with soft shell crab' and 'Beef cheek bourguignon' as main. We had 'Assiette de dessert' (this dessert is designed for 2 people to share). Excellent food with great service. Day time is recommend.


Wattle Grove

Makiko dined on Sun, 28th May 2017 (8)

The food was very nice especially dessert, their Lamington is highly recommend. The staff were friendly and very nice. The interior of the restaurant is very sophisticated and paintings on the wall (they are on sale) look nice too.

Deen Street BBQ


Makiko dined on Tue, 23rd May 2017 (7)

The decoration in the restaurant was very good with lots of Americana. Food was nice and staff were nice and friendly. The restaurant has a big space (room) so it is perfect for a party venue (21st birthday, any kinds of party).

Beccaria Bar and Restaurant


Makiko dined on Thu, 18th May 2017 (8)

My husband and I had Slow cooked ribs. They were well cooked and very delicious. I wish I could try dessert (Other customer was having tiramisu and it looked nice!) but the main (the ribs) was very big so I was pretty full. However, I was quite satisfied with the main and good value. The staff were very nice and friendly too.

Laputa Buffet


Makiko dined on Thu, 6th Apr 2017 (8)

Sashimi and Sushi quality was great! I also enjoyed Chawan-mushi and many different kinds of Japanese desserts (Yokan, Daifuku, Japanese style cheese cake, pumpkin pudding etc.). Nice City and the Swan River view from the restaurant.

Samari Cambodian Restaurant Fine Asian Cuisine

Mount Hawthorn

Makiko dined on Sat, 1st Apr 2017 (9)

My husband and I had dinner last week's Sunday night and that was an excellent so we decided to come back to this restaurant again! We had fried spring rolls and 2 bowels of Laksa noodles as lunch this time. Service was great as before. The Laksa tasted a little bit mild for us so we try to ask to make the Laksa a little bit hotter(spicy) next time. Except this, the Laksa contained a lot of veggies and very nice.

Opus Restaurant

Perth CBD

Makiko dined on Thu, 30th Mar 2017 (9)

My husband and I had a special $85 degustation course which is only available on Thursdays until 25th May 2017. The quality of food was really good. The dessert was great too. (pre-dessert and chocolate trio) This special price degustation is definitely a good value!

Samari Cambodian Restaurant Fine Asian Cuisine

Rochelle Adonis


Makiko dined on Sun, 19th Mar 2017 (8)

My husband and I had $35 branch menu on Sunday 20th March 2017. Food and service was good. It would be better if there was a written menu so we could see what would be coming next... $8 cake & cup of tea (or coffee) set sounds nice so I will try the cake & tea set next time.



Makiko dined on Tue, 21st Feb 2017 (8)

My husband and I had $75 lunch set menu (available Monday - Friday) I think that this lunch set menu is a good value. Their bread is from "Bread in common" from Fremantle and homemade butter. Both are moreish. 2 tasting plates, main and dessert. The service was excellent and the toilet's soap (fennel, almond & lavender, smells so nice) was made by one of the waitstaff.



Makiko dined on Thu, 16th Feb 2017 (9)

The service was excellent. My husband and I had $75 course menu and this is highly recommended. 3 sake tastings was great too. We could taste such as classic, premium and fruity flavour sake. The presentation of 3 small cups of sake was beautiful. (including the $75 course menu and you can choose either glass of wine)

Davvero! Caffe Cucina

St Michael 6003


Makiko dined on Tue, 5th Jul 2016 (7)

The food and service was nice. We had 7 course degustation menu. It would be nicer if the food came earlier. We started 7 pm and finished 10 pm so we would be glad if we could finish eating the course at least 9:30pm.

Wild Swan at Mandoon Estate


Makiko dined on Sun, 12th Jun 2016 (8)

My husband and I had 7 course degustation (my husband had with matching wine course). The restaurant was really busy (12:50pm) and the first couple of dishes came out slow (though waitperson worked hard) but after that everything was good. There is an art-gallery, children play area and casual dining available. The Swan River is sort of next door so it will be nice place for family too.

Makiko dined on Tue, 31st May 2016 (9)

Food presentation and originality of food was great. Nice customer service. Home-made bread was very tasty. Chicken skin, koshihikari and togarashi and Choc orange was my favourite entrée. Desserts (Sweet potato and salted caramel, Choc orange, rosemary and passion fruit) was not too sweet and tasty. Mint and pepperberry tea was nice to finish the course.



Makiko dined on Sun, 7th Feb 2016 (8)

Food and service were very good. With some clever dishes such as mushroom doughnuts and also very good pork belly. The serves were quite big. The back yard looks nice though it was not a big place. The restaurant itself does have plenty of room for groups.

MON Taste of Japan


Makiko dined on Tue, 29th Dec 2015 (7)

Recipe Sampler (Entree) is highly recommend. The volume is quite big and you can taste 5 different dipping (include creamy Potato salad) with marinated olives and Turkish bread. Burg (Tenderised beef striploin) is another recommendation. You can see a beautiful night view of Swan River from the restaurant.

Dusit Thai


Makiko dined on Tue, 15th Sep 2015 (7)

Sool Cafe Piano Lounge

Perth CBD

Makiko dined on Mon, 3rd Aug 2015 (7)

It is located at the CBD. Nice atmosphere. Quite and peaceful. I had a Sool Breakfast. It was a very English style breakfast. In my opinion, it is also a good place for a breakfast meeting. I have not been here night time but I would like to come back here in the evening sometime as there is a live music here.

Voyager Estate

Margaret River

Makiko dined on Sun, 26th Jul 2015 (9)

The Gala Restaurant

James Parker Sushi x Sake


Makiko dined on Thu, 13th Nov 2014 (10)

Really nice food and drinks. Excellent customer service. It is a pity the restaurant will be closed for renovation to change a different style of Japanese restaurant. (Hope the new one will be better than current one) A very good quality Japanese restaurant and non-Japanese friends also love the food.



Makiko dined on Thu, 29th May 2014 (8)

Entree Soft Shell Crab and Red Thai Curry were really tasty. Lime Tart was very good too. Banana sago pudding was ok but not extraordinary. Good restaurant for special occasion. Better to go there with lots of friends to share lots of dishes.



Makiko dined on Sun, 17th Nov 2013 (8)

Pasts (seafood ones) were great and volumes were big too. It is very hard to find great past at restaurants so I was really satisfied this time.
