A cornerstone of fine dining in Perth, Friends Restaurant's combination of Michelin-starred food,
spectacular views and a wine list that's been awarded the best in Australia are the sort of extras
that turn an ordinary function into an extraordinary one.
Between the 13 years they ve run Friends
Restaurant for and the decade spent at the
iconic Dear Friends in the Swan Valley,
experienced restaurateurs Clyde and Lesley
Bevan have learned a thing or two about
running a successful dining room.
Whether it s because of their relentless
commitment to fine food and wine or the
morning after yet another barnstorming
dinner and concert event, Friends Restaurant
has never been far from the lips of the city s
It s not just restaurant-goers who the Bevans
can cater to, but function organisers as well
with all of Friends majesty and expertise
available for events both corporate and private.
Whether the occasion requires an intimate
table for two or booking out the entire
restaurant for 120 people, all guests will agree
that the across-the-water views afforded by
Friends floor-to-ceiling windows are worth
the price of admission alone.
Now factor in the cooking of Andrew
Barnes, former head chef at the two Michelin-
starred Longridge, and the prospect of hosting
an event at Friends becomes a very delicious
one indeed, not least of all because the
Englishman will put his understated but max-
flavour touch on the finest local produce.
This isn t your regular quantity-over-quality
function food, but restaurant quality cuisine
prepared for guests at a function.
Degustation dining, where wines are matched
with each dish, are one of Friends fortes and
understandably so with knowledgeable wine
aficionado Clyde Bevan keen to share the
contents of his restaurant s cellar with guests.
Finally, Friends central location makes it an
ideal choice for occasions where guests will be
flying in from interstate and internationally
-- two nearby hotels offer a range of
accommodation options while ample parking
is available beneath the restaurant.
Good food, fine wine, great service and a
spectacular view? That s what Friends is for.
