Owned and ran by a French couple, this is a lovely little bar. Wide choice of wines with both Australian and worldwide bottles on offer with many by the glass if a bottle is too much! Didn't eat here but the meat and cheese platters...More

We stumbled across this place and found it to be charming and the service was first class. We went back a further twice and it was the same. The waiter was a French guy usually with a hat and he assisted us with restaurant choices....More

Recently we visited Whisper Wine Bar in Fremantle, for Friday lunch. This small establishment is steeped in history – the converted double story limestone building was constructed in 1862. It has some street seating on Essex Street, a bar area and upstairs lounge with double...More

This is a lovely little wine-bar that's well worth stopping at for a nice glass of wine or an after-dinner cognac. Wonderful atmosphere and perfect for a small group of friends to gather for a chat. ***** Bravo!

The perfect spot to have a good old chin wag with a mate, this 'small' bar is perfect. Friendly and engaging staff, the wine across the board hits the make and the cheese platter was moreish. Freo serves up some of the best small bars...More

Well this is a little treasure. Staff were great, so friendly. Wines were very nice. Wish we hadn't eaten before we came as the food looked great. Cheese, antipasto platters and baguettes. Will defiantly be back. Very cosy feel to the place.

As with a previous reviewer, we spotted this little place on a walk from our hotel to dinner and stopped in for a look. We stayed for a wonderful, very French experience. The wine list was short but interesting and the plate of goat's cheese...More

In the heart of Essex Street in Fremantle, The Whisper Wine Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic evening or a few glasses of finely chosen wines. We focus on Australian wines but offer a fine selection of French, South African, New Zelander and Italian wines. While you sip your wine, make sure you try some of our French tapas (charcuterie, cheeses, terrine, rillettes, freshly baked baguette...).We are by far the best place to end your evenings (closing at 12am on weekends).Opening days: Wednesday to Sunday
