The food was great, the Octopus & Broccolini were amazing, really enjoyed the meals and will go back to try some more.

the only negative was being mislead on by the glass/bottle products when ordering, thought we had bought a bottle and was charged by the glass, this was a big disappointment and wrecked the great night we had. We will see what happens next time and hopefully it was just inexperienced staff on the night.

Ascua is the whole package, from the moment we walked in till the end, Ascua is a completely satisfying dining experience.
The food is full of flavour, impeccably balanced and presented with finesse. The ambiance is conservatively stylish but without pretence, with Spanish music present without being dominating and the lighting was cleverly lit throughout.
Now, the service...... the service was the best I’ve experienced in Perth since living here (15 years) and I have been fortunate in my life to have had many spectacular dining experiences from all around the world.
Ascua have a wonderful team of people giving the diner a fulfilling dining experience, my husband and I left Ascua after celebrating our 16th Anniversary feeling happy and relaxed and with the knowledge of wonderful memories made.
Thank you Ascua ... you will see us again soon.

Fresh food and friendly service. However, much too many mosquitoes for comfort. Told our server and even he says he struggles with the amount of mozzies here in summer on a daily basis. Not even kidding, there were more than ten mozzies coming at us left, right and centre. Management should use mosquito coils or something to get rid of the mozzies - not particularly enjoyable being dinner for mozzies when you are having dinner here.

We had another excellent night at Ascua. This time we had the tomahawk steak (between 2) for main and shares the cuttlefish entree, which was a good amount of food for the start of a long weekend. The tomahawk is very well seasoned and cooked with a delicious charred crust!

Acusa is a good restaurant. We enjoyed it. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced (for Perth CBD). The service is very good: attentive but not intrusive, without extended delays. We were easily able to get to the theatre in time. The ambiance is very nice: smart decor, and a reasonably low noise level. It's possible to have a conversation with your companions without strain - something which impossible at too many restaurants these days. Parking nearby is handy and inexpensive for a night at the theatre. Our second visit, and we will return.

The main courses that the five of us had were all of the highest standard—imaginative, delicious, and well presented. The dessert that two of us had was similarly excellent; however a fork would have helped along with the spoon provided. The service was efficient, and we had no time difficulty in making the show at His Majesty's following the dinner.

The best meal out in a long time - their expertise in wood fired cooking was so so good. Our Cuttlefish starter was so tender and the mains of Pork Belly (large serve) and Chicken on sweetcorn was just so moist and tender.
We cannot wait to go back..

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.
