We had a lovely meal. The service was very attentive and the staff friendly. A Prosecco reception for our anniversary was a lovely surprise. Would reccommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Perth.

First time I've eaten a la carte here, as I've always been pre-theatre before. This was a meal to celebrate my daughter's birthday, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was wonderful - fresh local ingredients, prepared with great skill and flare. Everything was beautifully presented, and the portion sizes were just right.
The service was friendly and attentive, which enhanced our overall experience of this welcoming and relaxed little restaurant. The quality of all the food was excellent, and prices are very reasonable.

We went to The North Port for a birthday dinner. The food was some of the nicest I have ever eaten. The restaurant is located in an old building full of character and has quite a casual vibe. Service was great and food just stunning. The only criticism I have is that the toilets are upstairs and are accessed via a spiral staircase. I currently walk with a stick due to a foot injury and found this quite difficult.

A fantastic place everything is fresh and from local producers and foragers. The tastes achieved are wonderful and the menu is truly creative. The deserts are a huge treat being crafted from the best and sometimes surprising ingredients but, unlike some establishments, the results are marvellous and will leave you with a huge smile on your face....What more can I say add delightful friendly staff into the mix and that's the North Port. If you get the chance GO!!!!!

Lovely ambience and excellent service. Starters good if a little meagre.
Main menu could be a little more varied 2 fish dishes and 2 game bird dishes and steak option somewhat overpriced.
However overall a pleasant dining night out experience

We had a wonderful meal from start to finish. The food was outstanding both visually and flavour wise. Everything was perfectly seasoned. The complementary celeriac dip with freshly baked bread and herb butter was a sensational start to the meal. I had a roast beetroot starter which looked amazing and tasted even better. My partridge was beautiful and my sister in law loved the liver. Desserts, wines and service were all excellent. A relaxed and interesting meal, packed with flavour. Service was helpful, friendly and just could not be faulted.
The best eating experience we have enjoyed for a long time. Well done, North Port. We will be back!!

A new restaurant to me, chosen because of good reviews and proximity to our destination. So it's always good when a plan comes together. A cozy space, welcoming staff, busy but not overwhelming, varied menu with interesting choices - only good if the food was good, and it was. Very good value set lunch. Couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Went for a special birthday treat for the first time. Very good atmosphere and the service was attentive throughout the meal. I enjoyed the food but only one small niggle and that was the haggis for me was a little tasteless. Good wine list and there was a good array of dishes to choose from. Would certainly return.
