Yesterday we lunched at Elma's and were very impressed with the location, service, food and the whole experience We chose to have the "tasting plate for two", very good decision. An Upper Reach white and a pilsner topped off the plate. Presentation great, quality of food terrific and outdoor setting fabulous. Price was good for the quality of the visit.... More

Came for lunch with the family and the service was good. Food was pricey though. Overall an enjoyable experience for folks who were visiting from out of town.

Went to Elmars for lunch yesterday. Lovely venue but extremely ridiculed by the exorbitant prices and very very poor service. Got short changed twice at the Cash only bar. Ordered a beer and a lemonade and was charged 25 dollars – until I questioned the prices of each. The bar man very well knew what he done. Where in Perth... More

Now here is something I don't understand and its beginning to be a trend which is scary and feels like a bit of a rip off!!! Make sure you bring plenty of cash before you come here. They only accept cash at the bar and for payment for the food, and of course in the modern World you aren't anticipating... More

We love light beers and were pleasantly surprised that they had some! A wonderful place for a cold beer!

I decided to pop in for lunch today and came out feeling very disappointed with the whole experience. Was asked when entering where I would like to sit, the day nice, so I said outside. Was told I would have to order and pay at the bar if I wanted to sit outside. Fair enough, I did that but was... More

Hi Kim, We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback and we are very disappointed to hear our service did not meet your expectations on this occasion. As our outdoor area is bistro style and we do not offer table service, as you were advised, we cannot provide multiple meal services however we are pleased to know you enjoyed... More

As a local resident, and Elmar's being a well-established German Venue for Oktoberfest year after year, we were terribly disappointed with the lack of services available. The ticket purchase process was thorough, requiring our names on each ticket & charged a fee by Moshtix to change names (if need be), giving the allusion the event would be equally thorough and...

I've tried to post on their Facebook profile..... It had to be vetted first which means it won't get on there.... Out and out the worst organised event I've been to in 4 years in Perth! Money was priority over safety! Security was minimal while idiot content was extremely high!! After a mere 5 hours, fights were breaking out left... More

If you enjoy standing in line for hours to get an overpriced beer or cold sausage, Elmars Octoberfest is the place for you. Or you could also line up to get money out of the ATM for all those people that enjoy queuing you will love this Octoberfest. Maybe they should change the name to the queuing fest.

Hi, We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and comments with us on your recent Oktoberfest experience. We apologise for the inconvenience, and understand your frustrations. To reduce queue times for drinks, our event staff opened up our inside bar on the day, this was in addition to our 3 bar lines in the beer garden. The... More
