Description: In the heart of Essex Street in Fremantle, The Whisper Wine Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic evening or a few glasses of finely chosen wines. We focus on Australian wines but offer a fine selection of French, South African, New Zelander and Italian wines. While you sip your wine, make sure you try some of our French tapas (charcuterie, cheeses, terrine, rillettes, freshly baked baguette...).We are by far the best place to end your evenings (closing at 12am on weekends).Opening days: Wednesday to Sunday

“Great atmosphere - friendly people!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Having been to Wisper quite a few times now, both with family and different groups of friends, its a great place to start or finish a longer visit to Freo, spend several hours relaxing and watching the world go by on the street... or chatting in the cosy nook upstairs..
We have enjoyed quite a few of the wines available on a pretty good list of local and international choices. Reasonable prices for the type of establishment.
The food is fresh and tasty, and certainly well presented by the great staff.
Love the atmosphere of these small bars... we need more of them!
Roll on the cooler weather, so that we can get back into those reds!

“Cool place, great wine”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Really nice little wine bar, and the owner is knowledgeable & passionate about his wine. Ask his advice, he's always happy to help. They have a really interesting wine list, Old World as well as New World, and a reasonable selection by the glass. The last we visited, the Zinfandel and Grenache were fabulous, and the rose has always been good.

We can't really comment on the food as we have never eaten there, but ther certainly have been some nice little tapas plates going past our table. You probably wouldn't make it the place for dinner, but sitting outside at one of the benches with a nice glass of wine, and some bread & olives is a winner.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Staff have little knowledge of wines for a wine bar. The service is poor and the tapas (or equivalent ) are pretty average.

There should be more of these nice, relaxed bars around Perth, loved having a glass of wine outside - we'll definitely be back!

“Parisian Atmosphere in Freo”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

We visited the wine bar earlier this year (March 2011) prior to our European trip - having now spent some time in Paris and sampled many of the smaller cafes in this city I can truly appreciate that the Wisper Wine Bar reflects a realistic French ambience. The service is very friendly with a relaxed feel. The menu is not extensive but the tasting plates are well worth the experience - the savoury platter of colds meats and the cheese selection = simple but great quality. We'll try the duck next time! There are a wonderful range of wines to choose from which can be purchased by the glass or full bottle. We will be revisiting very soon - especially as the weather warms.
