    Took our boss who came from interstate and she and the rest of us who were there were very happy with the food and price. She actually said it was the best chicken salad she ate and I very much enjoyed my steak sandwich. One of the better ones I have had. Beer selection was good too. Definition happy to go back!!

    Great food and friendly service. The staff were very accommodating in seating us in a quiet area as we had a baby in a pram. Thank you.

    The food was excellent . Unfortunately the table we were given (not the original one that was reserved for us) was a little noisy but it didn't impact too much on our enjoyment. I would definitely make a return visit.

    Dined in for lunch with a few friends, the decor and atmosphere was nice. It was fairly busy and we had a bit of a line to order (you order food and drinks at the bar) but it went fairly quick. I ordered the spaghetti marinara which was delicious. My friend's order got mixed up but the staff were onto it and provided the meal in ample time. Nice place to have a work lunch, I would recommend dining here.

    Our 'go to' place for lunch when in Perth City Centre - food is good, can always get 'our table' where there is just enough atmosphere to feel included but it's private and quiet enough to be able to have a chat and actually hear each other! Service is always attentive but not intrusive, food is excellent value and good quality and the hotel is always spotlessly clean and inviting. Well done! We'll be back.

    Great spot for a value for money meal. We booked into the restaurant for a before a concert meal. Everything was delivered promptly, the food was tasty, fresh and large portions. Although it was noisy due to the floor boards in the restaurant, we could not fault anything else.

    We had ordered room service when we arrived at the hotel and had a drink, only to discover that the menu at DeBaun for our dinner reservation WAS the room service menu.................also our dinners went cold while we waited for drinks at the over crowded and understaffed bar whose bartenders served queue jumpers and not those lined up and social distancing

    Lovely dining area. It was empty so not sure about how the acoustics would be if it was busy. Great menu variety and really good prices. We were very happy with everything, and the wait staff were attentive, but not over-bearing. Will definitely go again.

    Food quite average and expensive for the portion size. Didn’t realise it closes at 9pm. No atmosphere and background music. Went in with a group of people to celebrate a birthday. Felt quite awkward.

    We made a booking one week before and were reminded day before to confirm.When booking was asked if a special occasion and replied our wedding anniversary.When we arrived at restaurant it was a very noisy bar (Thurs evening 5.45)Said we had already made a booking but waiter said no need just find a table ourselves so eventually he found one in corridor. Meal was ok.

    Enjoyed our meal. We had the steak with prawns, the lamb salad and the salmon. All very good value for money. My vegetables with the salmon dish, could have been cooked a little longer. We ate our meal in the courtyard so it was more comfortable and quieter. The service was good.

    Bar is very noisy. The side area is reasonably ok, but not much ambiance. Food is good but a small salad with the steak and potato would not go amiss.

    first time to De Baun & Co. We went as a group of four for a pre-show dinner, so weren't expecting to stay long. service was prompt and polite, with shared entrée tasting plate and four mains. All were very good. Smallish venue so not too noisy, we'd go again.

    Went here to see what they have done with the old Melbourne. Nicely done up with some old style elements. Reasonably good wine list and beers. Good value up market pub fills a gap at that end of town.

    Unfortunately we did not enjoy our experience at this restaurant at all. Our seating location was extremely odd, being placed in what appeared to be a hall way in between the bar and another restaurant. We had to order our meals at the till (we assume as they had people leaving without paying) and the meal took over 45 minutes to arrive. To top it off, my friend's chicken was completely raw and she could not eat it, and my fish was dry and flavourless. I would not eat here again.

    Casual modern setting with good quality food. Unfortunately the waitress and kitchen staff were not able to understand a request for a meal with special dietary requirements, so we all ate at different times.

    I booked the table for 6pm to beat the rush plus we had a show on at 8pm at the Perth Arena. We had been seated less than 10 minutes and was asked twice to order. After ordering a entrée and main my sister and I had only finished one drink. I went to toilet and by the time I came back my entrée and MAIN were on the table at the same time. Who wants that??? I asked to take away as I don't want at same time. The response from waitress was I will put under warmer until you ready - I said no I want a fresh steak when I am ready. She also proceeded to tell me that they were basically rushing us (2 people) through as they didn't know how busy it would get. More or less getting us out as quickly as possibly. The entrée was nice - calamari. Steak bit tough but the 1/4 of cabbage on my plate was far from appealing. Very disappointed and will never eat here again.
