Food was brilliant, very tasty, well cooked although we had seafood, not the signature tomahawk. Staff was attentive, what you want really, not over-bearing, shoving recommendations down your throat or conspicuous by their absence. Would love to come back soon.

This is our second birthday visit to this red and on both occasions we had the set menu which is perfect as we are both gluten free. The restaurant did us proud especially with a free glass of bubbles to mark the occasion. And the dessert - what can I say - amazing! Thank you.

Myself and 2 work friends went for dinner at Ascua Wednesday night and it was busier than expected. The steak was tasty and cooked to my liking. Loved watching the chef sear the steaks on the grill. The only thing that let them down was their inability to split the bill 3 ways, they could split 2 ways not 3?? Still can not understand why.

Great find in the CBD in Perth. Everything from the service, to the suggestions from our waiter to the food we were served was exemplary. The waiter suggested the tommohawk steak to share, he was spot on. Cooked to perfection and delicious it was a huge portion that we couldn’t do justice to. You could also be forgiven for thinking you were in the centre of Barcelona.

Unfortunately all food was heavily salted
We have eaten out all over Perth and Internationally and have not experienced to this degree before
Not sure if something was different this night or if you always apply salt to this degree
Please take as constructive feedback

My 2nd time. Must say better than the 1st and the 1st was outstanding. Food, wine, service all wonderful. My partner had a small request given her dietary requirements and it was accommodated to without any fuss. Our waiter had extensive knowledge, great experience and a wonderful table manner. I will recommend Ascua unequivocally.

Diane and I enjoyed her birthday celebration several nights ago, and we both enjoyed Ascua totally. We enjoyed the Chefs Selection which covered every course that the kitchen produced, and every curse was superb. The standouts for me were the first course with the plate of picked local Swimmer Crab followed by the subsequent course of the Snapper on a bed of Risotto cooked in Squid Ink. Diane loved a new dish for her which was the Geraldton Cuttlefish; my bite was a little smoky but very tender. Her rare Beef Rump was grilled to perfection. The entire dinner was superb, and at another celebration, we will definitely return.

After recieving lots of rave reviews about Ascua from a friend, we were very excited to finally try it for a birthday. Unfortunately, it failed to meet expectations. The rump steak was so tough, it couldn’t be swallowed unless chewed for an excessively long time, the cuttle fish starter was over salted and the cheese plate looked like ingredients were just tossed into the plate.

Had high expectations based on rave reviews. Was a bit disappointed as the octopus which came in the seafood platter was very chewy. Several pieces of the wood fired broccoli were VERY charred but undercooked. Experience was altogether underwhelming. Service was pleasant.

Service is professional and courteous but very slow and lacking initiative. After waiting 20 minutes in a half full restaurant we gave up on getting a dessert menu and left without buying what would have been several dishes and drinks. The decor looks good but the atmosphere was spoiled by the side entrance door being repeatedly left open for the cold night air to blow in. The meals are attractive and good quality, although on the expensive side. Wait staff could have upsold a lot of drinks and extras if they had tried, even once.

Great value on the mains share plates and delicious food overall. Some small gripes with the table height in the booths which all my table of 4 found difficult for being too tall making it ironically uncomfortable for a booth seating. Also the lighting is harsh in places considering it is generally a pleasant dark-style ambience. The hatch hole to Heno & Rey tapas area near us was really disconcerting and the light above us was harsh. Looking forward to the hotel stylist visiting and mandating the light settings. Way too much being said here about the lighting but it's bad and affected the night and the food and service was excellent.
