A James St favourite that's taking off in a big way
An idyllic hideaway that has long been a rummager's home to antique stores and second-hand book shops, Guildford is one of Perth's burgeoning treasures. Jezebelle Restaurant has become a mainstay of class and distinction among the village feel of James Street's rail-side strip. For an atmospheric Valentine's Day, we could've wanted for nothing.
A lack of planning proved us quite inconsiderate customers who didn't book ahead, but regardless of how busy they were, we were politely found a table in the secret garden courtyard. Prompt service brought us the nicest black coffee I've tasted in Perth thus far, and not long after followed our delectable Tasmanian salmon corn cake tapas dish - crispy and soft without relying on salt or spice for it's fresh, wholesome flavour.
The menu consists of tapas dishes to suit every palate, and homely desserts of churros or ice cream round off the variety with panache. The cheeky cocktail list and temptingly broad range of tea leaves confirms their theme of variety. All in all, a very impressive menu which begs to be sampled all the way through from starters to cheese platters.
My companion asked to be recommended a dry white wine to finish off the evening and was met with the impressive wine knowledge of our waitress. We were loathe to quit this pleasant midsummer venue, but I'm sure we'll be back for a coffee or three, and certainly to experience their breakfasts and seasonal menu updates.
