A glorious drinking den that is well worth a visit.

As far as Aussie drinking holes go, the Raffles Hotel has an enviable past. The pub's nearly 120-year history is peppered with colourful characters and some star studded individuals. The art-deco heritage-listed hotel pays tribute to its past while giving it a well deserved facelift.

The Raffles menu has been redone, and has been carefully curated to showcase the best of Western Australian produce with a strong focus on Italian cuisine.

A la carte menu available daily from 12pm until late.

    We hit a busy lunch and needed at a plus1. Tony was very accomodating. Very long wait for steaks that day but otherwise right onto everything. I have to say the alfresco could be one of the coolest places in Perth but the design is lacking. Book so you get indoors seat.

    Service all up was terrible. Asked one of the bar staff about a beer, answer was "sorry I don't drink beer so I don't know". At the table, asked the wait staff about the meal portion, was told "I don't know", asked them about the sauce options "Sorry, I don't know".... that was a great start. Then the food comes out (eventually), the mains come before the entree then one of our party waited another 10 minutes for his main to arrive. The whole time we were only ever asked if we would like another drink just before we were leaving. I understand the issues with staff, but a lot of training is required. I can see why is was very quiet last night. I won't be back

    I thought the meal served to my two colleagues could have been done better. Both chose Chicken Parmigiana but found the thickness of the chicken was far too thick. One person managed to eat the chicken piece only while the other only ate a small amount. The plate of Barramundi I chose was tasty of an appropriate serve and the presentation was good.

    We found the food delicious,but in the case of the barramundi the portion size was significantly smaller for the price than elsewhere. Pizza superb.Mussels pretty good. $10 for a bottle of still water is outrageous-really let's you down . Cocktail excellent . Service was second to none - excellent. Activity pack for my grandson was a great idea too.

    Raffles has been a favourite with our lunch group for approximately 5 years and continues to deliver good quality food and service. Would be handy to have some midweek specials on offer (other than the daily offerings) to appeal to regulars and increase clientele. We will return, great hotel and easy access.

    Waitress found us another table as the one we were allocated was next to the door (very draftee). Chilli muscles arrived cold, but sauce was good, the Steak was served in a sea of jus hidden by an array of mushrooms, could find the parsley mash. Not able to have a coffee after 10pm and bar closed at 10.20pm.

    It was alright. We had a table of 4. I must admit that the chicken parmi looked great, and the burger was really good (a bit small though), the fish and chips were fine, but the Caesar salad was mostly all lettuce. I think the most disappointing thing was that it was mostly pub food (which is EVERYWHERE these days) or pasta-type dishes so there wasn't a lot to choose from. For the four of us the menu was "meh".

    A cold chill blew through the dining room, with staff unable to keep it closed. The chicken parmigiana was a horrible piece of chicken. The crab was scarce. Quiet a disappointment when having a significant family event (two birthdays).

    Very poor service. We had a booking and waited inside the door for 10 minutes for someone to come and show us to our table. Gave up and just went to an empty table. No one came and saw us to take an order for the entire 90 minute stay. We ended up ordering everything via the electronic table ordering system. Very disappointing for customers who have been regulars for many years.
