Friends Restaurant | Restaurant | Perth Inner City | East Perth
PLACE With unobstructed views across the
water through to South Perth, Friends has
one of the city’s best vantage points. Its
location next to the Hyatt and Crowne Plaza
hotels makes it an attractive option to visitors
both from interstate and abroad.
NUMBERS From two through to 120, Friends
can cater for groups of all sizes.
FOOD Chef Andrew Barnes is committed to
sourcing the highest-grade produce, including
wagyu beef and Manjimup truffles. Degustation
menus with matched wines are a speciality.
DRINK Home to one of Perth’s most extensive
and celebrated wine lists, rare back vintages
and speciality drops are also available.
DETAILS Clyde and Lesley Bevan have been
operating friends in the city for 13 years. Prior
to this, they were the proprietors of the iconic
Dear Friends Restaurant in the Swan Valley.
Whether it’s because of their
relentless commitment to fine
food and wine or yet another
barnstorming dinner and concert event,
Friends Restaurant has never been far from
the lips of the city’s foodies.
But it’s not just restaurant-goers who
restaurateurs Clyde and Lesley Bevan can
cater to – function organisers are also well
looked after as all of Friends Restaurant’s
majesty and expertise are available for
corporate and private events.
Whether the occasion requires an intimate
table for two or booking out the entire venue,
all guests will agree that the across-the-water
views afforded by floor-to-ceiling windows
ensure a memorable function.
Now factor in the cooking of Andrew
Barnes, former head chef at the two Michelin-
starred UK restaurant Longridge, and an event
here becomes a very delicious one indeed. In
fact, the restaurant is the current holder of the
Gold Plate for Best Fine Dining in Perth.
Degustation dining, where wines are
matched with each dish, is one of Friends’
fortes and wine aficionado Clyde Bevan is
keen to share his knowledge and the contents
of his restaurant’s cellar with guests.
Good food, fine wine, great service and a
spectacular view? That’s what Friends is for.
