We were on our way to catch a train at Subiaco when we noticed this bar just across from the station entrance so thought we would duck in and have a look-see. There is a small outdoor area with high tables and stools and indoors tables and chairs, couches and a central bar area. It is nicely fitted out and so we decided to have a drink and look over the menu in anticipation of a future visit.
The menu is geared towards sharing but with some larger meals as well- dishes include Cajun spiced wedges; garlic prawns; oysters natural or Kilpatrick; arancini; spiced squid; scallops; chicken parma; fish and chips; burgers; steaks; and a couple of pasta dishes.
The drinks list has a few beers on tap – Peroni and Asahi among them – and more by the bottle – including Crown lager; Kingfisher; Little Creatures Pale – as well as a number of cocktails.
The wine list is quite small but among the wines on offer are Prevelli SSB and Vasse Felix Classic among the whites, and reds include Voyager Shiraz, Moss Wood Amys; Penfolds Bin 389; Hentley Farm Shiraz and Driftwood Cabernet Sauvignon – so some very good drops among them. It is a well put together little list.
Lady FWO plumped for a glass of Prevelli Pinot Noir rosé while I opted for a glass of Brown Hill Hannans Cabernet Sauvignon. Both wines were served in good glasses chosen for the wine style – none of the thick all purpose ones here. We always consider this the sign of a bar with flair.
The waiters were uniformly welcoming and friendly and the place has a nice atmosphere. It is centrally located in Subiaco, and is very close to public transport. The menu seems to hit the mark, and the small wine list certainly does.
Sitting in the warm sun in the outdoor area looks to be a great place to spend a little time – we will be back to taste test the food and report on that.
