The Reveley Bar has a premium waterfront location at Elizabeth Quay beside our beautiful city. As the latest venture from the team at The Stables Bar, the brasserie brings the same stylish, yet relaxed dining that you would come to expect. Inspired by Swan River colony’s seminal civil engineer Henry Willey Reveley, the name reflects the design work incorporated throughout. The interior has a subtle industrial tone, while still remaining comforting and warm. From the elegant menu illustrations to the textured cutlery and quirky irregular-shaped plates, it’s the attention to detail that really elevates The Reveley Bar as a first-class establishment.
There’s no set agenda at the venue, with three levels to choose from. The ground floor opens up onto the waterfront, serving as the perfect spot for some post-work drinks. The first-floor restaurant provides a menu specialising in WA produce and premium local seafood, while the top floor offers rooftop diners bespoke cocktails and share plates.
A couple of the team from Kleenheat paid a visit and were surprised how busy The Reveley Bar was for a Wednesday evening. The clientele was a mix of post-work diners, small family groups and the occasional romantic date. Stepping onto the first floor (or entering from the elevator), we couldn’t help but be impressed by the setup. Tables lined the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the quay, boasting a real wow factor. Subtle mood lighting and gentle music provided the perfect ambience against the hustle and bustle of the incoming crowds and busy kitchen.
Service was swift and attentive, having to wait little time before we had a glass of Pinot in hand. We agonised over the freshly-shucked oysters and South West yabby tortellini but eventually chose the crumbed duck boudin blanc with shaved pickled walnut and celeriac remoulade. For those partial to a chicken kiev – this was a fancy version! Attention to detail is clearly key, with a slight taste of lemon cutting through and refreshing celeriac complementing the savoury crumb.
The mains selection is quite diverse, offering something for every palate. The roasted pork scotch fillet with Illawarra plum and Wagin goose pie were deliberated over,—you know you’re onto a good thing when your menu choice becomes tasking! We chose the baked ricotta gnocchi with ironbark pumpkin, Nannup chestnuts and black truffle butter. The different elements of the dish worked perfectly with subtle flavours making every mouthful a surprise. We also tried the Carnarvon pink snapper fillet with blue swimmer crab, leek, nettle puree and ruby sorrel. The dish was fresh, and light but sizeable enough to finish feeling fully satisfied. I don’t know why, but when you know it’s local it just tastes even better! For those looking for something a little larger, there are a number of steak options available, from the 300g 100-day grain-fed Margaret river fillet, to the 600g 90-day grain-fed butterfield chateaubriand – unless you haven’t eaten for a few days this one is for sharing!
Not ones to miss out on dessert, we were tempted by the Bahen organic chocolate dèlice and vanilla bean crème brulee. Eventually, we settled on the spiced poached pear with calvados and cardamom cheesecake ice cream. Cardamom and ice cream – not a partnership you would expect, but it’s a marriage made in foodie heaven. Curried icecream? Yes please!
While still relatively new, The Reveley Bar and re staurant is sure to be a hit with even the most travelled of Perth foodies. Just make sure you book, this place is only going to get busier!
