Well, you can have local fame, get on TV, and then let your Subiaco restaurant fall to pieces it seems. We went here the first week of January 2017. Had the crepes as an entree, and they were salty beyond being edible, and I am a salt fiend. The mains, a steak, and the fish. The steak, so-so cut, served... More

2 years ago we had our staff Christmas do at Bistro des Artistes. Both the food and the service were wonderful. 2 weeks ago it was a different story ... Uninterested waiter, slow service, small serves of average quality. I immediately wrote an email to management but they have not taken the time to write back. Extremely disappointed! Sorry Bistro...

We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Bistro des Artistes last week. This is a small and popular bistro facing onto busy Hay St, which can be a little bright in summer for some tables at the front. Parking is not too far away, e.g. Seddon St carpark behind. Decor is clean and the service was attentive and friendly throughout. The... More

Went to Bistro des Artistes for a family dinner. We all chose the "$79 for 3 courses (including complementary cheese, pre-dessert and hot drink with petit fours". - Appetiser. The appetiser was placed on the table with no explanation of what it was, the waiter quickly walked away. - Entrée. Charcuteries board, carpaccio and escargot's profiteroles were all good, particularly... More

Had a very nice meal. Front of house staff needs attention. Was a bit offputting to some of my guests.

Visited for lunch with friends on a Friday and ordered off of the special lunch menu which was very good value. Not enormous portions, but the seafood crepe, beef cheeks and almond and pear tart were all excellent. Service was efficient and friendly and wines were also good value and not too heavily marked up. I will return.

We have had dinner here 4 or 5 times previously, and enjoyed it. However, we won't be going again. The service was friendly but inefficient. Waitstaff seem to specialise in looking busy and walking round a lot while avoiding eye contact with diners. A few issues: we were asked what we would like to order after sitting for about 15...

Based on reviews we were expecting something special, but were rather disappointed. Firstly the service was unacceptable in that the waitress was new and totally unfamiliar with the menu. Each time we asked about aspects of the menu she had summon another member of staff. This reflects poorly on the management, who should train their staff. The food was average... More

Two of us went there for dinner, placed at a quiet table as per our request. The food was tasty and enjoyed the chateaubriand for two which was delicious. Service was good in most parts however there was an inexperienced waitress who didn't offer us the opportunity to taste the wine before it was poured and when I ordered bottled... More

Alain Fabregues has been one of my favorite Chef's for many years, sorry when he closed his restaurant Loose Box in the Perth Hills. Was delighted when I arrived back in Perth he had opened a Bistro in Subiaco. Enjoyed a great meal there recently his very special Beef Cheeks slow cooked in Shiraz delightful.
