    Enjoyed the food but had to wait a long time for the drinks after they forget my order which was disappointing. Restaurant was lively and pleasant deco.

    Duende (Owner)

    Thanks for your feedback, we always appreciate hearing from our guests. Our apologies for the delay with your drinks order and without it being an excuse, we're still running lean with staff shortages and a number of brand new team members on board. Rest assured that will not be the same on your next visit.

    Lovely Spanish / Tapas style food in interesting building in Leederville. Service was very friendly and no wait time. Reasonably priced and can recommend to others.

    Duende (Owner)

    Thanks so much for spending time with us and recommending Duende to others. We really appreciate it. We're already looking forward to your next visit.

    It is an expensive restaurant, we ordered the tasting menu, 4 people plus 4 beers and 2 waters $345. The service was pretty average, they clearly wanted to finish early . Food tasty but pricey

    Duende (Owner)

    Thanks for your feedback and comment on our food being tasty. It always puts a smile of the faces of our hard working team in the kitchen. We were disappointed to read that you saw us as expensive. Our 5 course Chef's Selection menu is generally seen as good value, particularly in the current climate with costs rising almost daily across all areas of the business. On the service front we can assure that we would never look to finish early and apologise if you felt this way. Service & guest experience is always a high priority for us. We hope to have you back with us at Duende again soon.

    Quality tasty food, cool bohemian atmosphere & friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit if you like tapas. Although next time I will check the portion sizes of the dishes as some were difficult to share between 6 people.

    Thanks for dining with us and giving us your feedback. We look forward to having you back with us again soon.

    This used to be a favourite of mine, but I admit I was disappointed by my visit yesterday. The place hasn't changed one iota over many years, and everything about the experience feels a little bit tired. The menu has not evolved, and urgently needs an upgrade. We were served a succession of deep-fried balls of tasteless bland mush. This place used to be, and could be again with some spirit and imagination, so much better.

    Duende (Owner)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The restaurant wasn't busy on a Wednesday lunch time and service was friendly. Our food arrived very quickly but drinks took a little longer. It was a very hot day and the restaurant wasn't cool, which was disappointing but it was a pleasant experience and the food quality was very good. I won't hesitate to go again or to recommend the restaurant to others.

    Food was top notch, great service, but noisy but didn’t detract from evening, had artichokes, mushrooms, prawns, potato dish, chorizo. Only disappointing one was the capsicum and Jimmie one. Everything else was really distinctive and yummy flavours.

    Duende (Owner)

    Thanks for dining with us and the great feedback. You've made our day. Controlling the noise is always a challenge but hopefully just a sign of a restaurant full of guests enjoying themselves :) We look forward to having you back in with us again soon.

About the restaurant

A Spanish Sensation

As Perth's first and original Spanish tapas bar, Duende has got one hell of a reputation. Since opening in 2003 this stunning venue has established itself as a neighbourhood favourite, known for its unique culinary experience which offers diners a taste of Spanish tapas culture in a warm and welcoming setting. The word ‘Duende' essentially means ‘having soul' and this place has got it by the bucket load.

The open kitchen is the focal point of the venue, churning out delicious Spanish bites using fresh, local produce. The menu is designed to be shared and there all kinds of tasty treats, with plenty of seafood, meat and vego options. We love the tasty chorizo that comes charred straight from the grill, the flavourful paella and the doughnut balls with condensed milk icecream.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Duende is the perfect spot for a casual coffee with your friends, a lunchtime business meeting or a family celebration - yep, this place ticks all the boxes.

Best experience: signature degustation menu.
