Food and ambiance was great but returned for another drink after a show and found it quite different. The Qld Rugby team were drinking and enjoying themselves and suddenly all the staff were too busy fussing over them to serve us. We had to ask 3 times for a glass of French champagne and then told we could only have one as they were now closing. Initial service at dinner was good though (same staff)

The service by the manager & wait staff was exceptional especially for a busy lunch period - the best customer service I have received in Perth for years. Thank you for making our dining experience so enjoyable!!!

We booked a table prior to a concert at Her Majestys' next door. The restaurant was booked out, but there were only two wait persons on, and whilst they were trying their best, they couldn't keep up. We had to ask for water twice, a request for another chair was never filled, and trying to get the waiters' attention was hard work. The meal, whilst not too long in coming, was okay. The crispy fresh caught squid was decidedly not crispy. Overall, not cheap for what you were served, the food was average and the restaurant was understaffed.

Very disappointing meal. Portions were small and overpriced and not nearly big enough to share. The flavours were also lacking and very little guidance or knowledge of the dishes from the staff. In comparison to other Tapas restaurants in Perth, it came in well short. Will not be going again.

Been to Heno’s more times than I could count and love the place - only reason it didn’t get five stars from me today is the last two visits I feel the service hasn’t been up to their normal high. Nothing to do with the staff! They’re just as lovely and accommodating as ever, perhaps they’re just more under the pump due to staffing cuts? Lovely experience anyway...great food and terrific wine list - also a great people watching spot. Will be back, and soon.

Poor service, not had to flag down a waiter for drinks 20 mins after sitting down. Tapas took 45 minutes and all brought our at different times, one dish forgotten and had to ask twice. Music far too loud. Overpriced for dish sizes.

Terrible. Decided on this spot for our 10 year anniversary, booked well in advance and were left disappointed entirely by the service. It took 3 separate people to try and seat us initially and then we were eventually dumped somewhere by a 4th waitress. Ordered a fish and steak dish, amongst others, and since I cant eat fish, was very eager for the steak. It never arrived. Waitress was flippant and really didn't care at all and only noticed we didn't have the steak once she cleared the plates and I raised it, grill was empty at the time so it definately wasnt even put through. The food was ok but you cant rely purely on that. Will be taking this further as all I wanted was to have a good night with my wife

Food was nice but service was really poor. It was a quiet night with plenty of staff but they were very inattentive. Only once did anyone proactively come to the table to ask if we wanted anything. I had to spend ages getting the attention of staff to get water, then again to ask for drinks, then again to order food and again to ask about a dish that didn’t come out.

A fire alarm was going off in the hotel next door for at least 20 minutes too. We had enough and left and had desert elsewhere. I won’t go back and won’t recommend it.

Hi LouiseForster, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I have passed your feedback on to our internal team and apologise for the service you experienced as this is not the level of quality we strive to achieve for guests. In regards to the fire alarm, we have checked our internal notes and it was a residential building whose fire alarm was going off. Again, we are sorry to hear of your service experience but glad to hear you enjoyed the food. Many thanks, Frances|Marketing Executive

Im Lokal herrscht eine gemütliche Atmosphäre und das Essen war top! Gut zum Teilen. Das Preisleitungsverhältnis hat gestimmt. Hat meine Erwartungen übertroffen!Würde jeder Zeit wieder hingehen!

Food was good, serving sizes are moderate given it is a tapas offering.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. It was hard to get staff attention to order drinks and food and hardly had anyone come to us without us having to flag someone down to do so.
Very disappointing service for what is meant to be a more premium eatery.
The service would deter me from coming back as frequently, which is a shame as the food was nice.

Our table had a napkin in the silver cutlery bucket, which had blood on it. I showed it to the bar staff and they were completely nonchalant about it. Not the reaction you'd expect from an Intercon outlet.

The food being Tapas, you would expect it to come out together, instead one plate at a time came out and it felt as though the restaurant was massively under-staffed.

One of my guests ordered a Pimms and Lemonade. There was no Pimms available so instead of coming back and letting us know, a plain lemonade was brought over and it took for my guest to ask the waiter to find out what had actually happened. Again, this isn't the level of service one would expect from an Intercon eatery.

Another visit with an interstate friend. We have excellent food and service until it came time to pay and it was very difficult to attract attention. Finally I got up and went to the cashier. I was after 9pm so maybe it many of the staff had left??

Great quality Tapas, the Heritage Tomatoes with the whipped goats cheese are very tasty as are the usual Tapas suspects. The outstanding dish is the flat iron steak, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The only thing that is not great is the price for Tapas. Tomato bread should really be a few dollars at most, as most of the time it is free in Barcelona. Indeed the Para Picar section of the menu is twice what it should be in price. Otherwise a great venue and the wait staff are fantastic.

We decided to ditch the crowds on Melbourne Cup Day and have a girlfriend catchup over a glass of bubbles. Heno & Rey delivered the space, calm and casual, in which to do that. My girlfriend and I decided on a few dishes with some advice from the wait staff. The dishes were tasty, if a little small, and the bubbles were spot on. Feeling indulgent we decided to get desert, the signature custard tart and churros. Unfortunately, that's where the delight ended, as the churros were over cooked, very oily, and served with the most banal and watery chocolate sauce I've ever come across. It's a shame as churros are synonymous with Spain, and if you can't get a national dish right, its not a good sign. I hope this was just a one-off hitch.

We have been here several times but on this occasion the fried whitebait was smaller portion than before and there were hardly any fried capers. Then when we got the bill the price of a bottle of wine was $10 more than on the menu. Lucky we checked the bill. The food is usually very good indeed and great service - maybe this was just a Friday night hiccup. We got there at 6pm so not as busy as it can be!!
