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.

Food exceptional, serves large so share dessert. Have been going for years. Disappointed oysters no longer on the menu, but the Italian styled menu does make up for it.

At first we were disappointed that there was no lobster risotto, however the gf pizza and fig salad was outstanding. The boys loved their steak sandwiches. The parfait amor cocktail was Devine - would love the recipe!
Only downside was the smoking area is only roped off and still close to where you eat. The smoke was vile and kept drifting back over us. Why can’t they be removed like most places and put external to the building. It was totally disgusting, especially as we started to eat.
Definitely would return but please remove the smokers...

We visit the Raffles regularly and once again we were not disappointed. The venue is great, food is delicious, it has a very good wine list and the service is exceptional especially from Tony! We will be back.

Been there three times in the past 6 weeks... ordered Barramundi .. first time no pesto or salad....second time pesto no salad abs third time when I ordered a side salad... it came with a Saks and no pesto. Could you please ensure consistency o be menu specific. Also it’s fairly cold inside.. was warmer outside even on the cold night a few days ago. Other than that beautiful venue and nice food!

I was hoping to find "Disabled Parking" for my mother's 88 birthday celebration luncheon as can't walk far due to surgery to fix a broken hip, parking underneath was confusing with no real signage about how to find the restaurant, - and then we had to go up three flights of stairs as lifts were only for residents. Service was great, - but I hoped they would make a bit more of a fuss over my mother who has been wanting a luncheon at the Raffles for some time. Oh well ..

Good service and food. Unfortunately, because we sat outside, halfway into eating out meal, it was spoilt by quite a few flying small bugs. Very annoying.

Have always wanted to eat at Raffles. Had the opportunity when I had all five of my children together for the first time in a long time.
The customer service that we received was fantastic, they really wanted to accommodate us.
My youngest is 10 and the menu was not child friendly at all. The food that we ordered was of quality and tasted great.

we waited in plain view for at least 5 - 7 minutes standing at either end of the restaurant and despite the main service guy standing about 3 metres away he ignored us until after he had imputed another tables meals and then took an order from another table. He was not overly welcoming. they appeared to be short staffed.
we eat out every weekend and wont rush back.

The waitress was attentive and very helpful. The music was REALLY loud and really bad to be honest that was the only thing that we all thought should be changed it was old school crap ... wake me up before you go go crap .. we found ourselves yelling to each other across the table . The food was very nice I couldn't fault mine- I had Shark bay Whiting everyone else was very happy with Crab pasta .
The cocktails were very nice .We will be back and hopefully they get some modern laid back tunes .
