Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Although we were above the bar and DJ area upstairs, it was a bit too noisy for easy conversation. But we are old farts so ... some dampening of the sound on the upstairs walls would be welcome.

The food was exceptional, we had our 11 and 13 YO kids with us, they loved all of the food just as much as we did. We had six dishes which we shared. We will definitely be back. Service was timely with good recommendations. Plates were well priced.

We'd wanted to visit Don Tapas since it was a pop up, at last we did it and were very impressed
Very friendly service. The Alter Ego are very nice but need to learn what an Aperol Spritz is.
Not sure what they did with the first effort, left out the Prosecco I think, anyway the second they filled it with Prosecco and left the Soda, we decided to run with that.
Foods very good

It was my first time at Don Tapa, but knew about your menu before I went. The food was as good as I was hoping it would be. Everything we ordered was delicious! The young man who served our table was also delightful. Thank you. My mother, brother and I enjoyed our night and will certainly return.

Our favourite restaurant in Fremantle. Celebrated my birthday on Friday night with friends and took the Chef's choice and was not disappointed. Some of the dishes were the best we have had anywhere. Great place and fantastic ambience.

Nice restaurant and food was good... not a huge choice
no air con so it could get a bit hot inside....
Service was great but it was pretty quiet so would expect it to be...
Worth going there for a casual lunch
Had cocktails previously there and they are great

I have been to this restaurant a few times in the past and have been the first to rave about it! It was my favourite place to take people from out of state. The wontons were amazing and I loved the fusion vibe. I was told the chef has changed recently and unfortunately the food did not wow me the way that it used to.

Really enjoyed going here since it has been recommended to me on several occasions. Outside seating was great & the establishment was all very funky; with a variety of bars & food offerings with a slight difference. Knowledgeable cheery staff; good food & well made cocktails. Will be back soon.

It was a rip off dinner. We were told the pork dish was a bit fat, but it turned out with all fat! $36 was charged just for this dish which was not even an entree for two nor a main. Overall paid fine dining price for non-special small portions food.

As always the food was supurb. Can't go past the goats cheese wontons, we have them every time. Didn't enjoy the octopus as much as I hoped I would, but still good. Rest of our choices amazing. Staff fabulous, they are ready to serve. Second wedding anniversary spent being fed at Don Tapa and as often as we can in between. Highly recommend.

Food was excellent, but we should have paid better attention to the reviews saying price per person! Maybe for a more special occasion when we were prepared to splurge on dinner, but that wasn't our intent when we went out. Nonetheless, great food, quiet atmosphere for early on a Saturday evening and a very cool venue in the Mantle.

The venue itself is cool and staff were attentive. Downside was that the food was overpriced for what you get.

For example, the Pumpkin dish was just a roasted half butternut pumpkin with hot paprika and a small amount of fetta.

Food was delicious and the dessert was awesome, the donuts and lime ice-cream my favourite.
The waitresses were excellent and quick with their service, though it was a quiet night for them. My only notable suggestion would be that the cocktail list was a bit sparse, not everyone likes Campari or Gin cocktails and that was all the menu had. They couldn't make a simple French Martini as the didn't stock Chambord which is apparently something to do with the bar licence. I think they could do a little better on that side of things and offer a better range of cocktails.

Food was delicious. We had the beef tacos and quinoa salad. Very pricey for what you get and service was unbelievably poor. Very inattentive and not overly friendly. That being said, we had a cocktail in the bar area afterward and the staff were amazing.
If price came down and offered proper table service I would highly recommend
