On the first evening when we arrive to Perth, decided to have dinner in our hotel room. So we went to Bistro 54 to order take out. Service was good, we ordered pasta with sea food and it was very delicious.

Great appetizers - Saluni and gnocchi Gorgonzola and main dish mushroom linguine! So good...... We each had a different tart for dessert......one lemon and one chocolate and split them. Very good. Topped it off with Limoncello and coffee. Best meal!

The food was ok but too expensive for what you get. The space is so crowded that you can't help but hear the conversations going on around you. No privacy and too expensive.

Hi Dave I see that you mention that there is mobile access, is there a washroom on the main level. One of our dinner guests uses a walker, which is why I am asking. Thank you Michael
