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.

    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.

    Four different meals, four very happy customers. Young lady serving was outstanding but main gentleman managing and serving somewhat unfriendly. Overall, this is the type of pub you put down for return visits.

    The Raffles was recommended to us and so thought we would try it. No one enjoyed their meal. Crab linguine was flavorless and the fish in the fish and chips had an unpleasant aftertaste.

    Feel the lighting could have been a little brighter, and the menus written in a darker ink colour (and maybe slightly larger font). Guests do need to be able to read the menus comfortably

    Service great, staff exceptional. Sadly can’t say same about the food. Pizza undercooked. Fish so so, too oily and chips same. Ambience good but noisy inside but understandable as hard floors. Didn’t choose to sit outside as windy. Convenient place to meet friends - just find food underwhelming.

    I came there on Friday for lunch with some work colleagues .. it has been the first time in a few years that I have been back to the Raffles - it was really, really good. So, when we had to take some friends out to lunch (who are visiting Perth from the UK) I decided to take them and my husband again. Twice in three days .. pretty good eh! Anyway, we weren't disappointed - excellent - thank you!!

    We had a little staff function at the Raffles and it was a lovely afternoon. The steak that we had served were top notch. We go to the Raffles quite often because it is just across the road from our office. I think the service and the food at the moment is better than I ever remember it. Well done Raffles.
