Just a note that this bar is a good place for a drink but is perhaps not so for an actual sit down meal. We visited as a family and found restaurant prices for small portions and average food (we ordered a Hawaiian pizza, chorizo platter and the beer battered fish and chips). The pizza was average and small when... More

We stayed at the Adina hotel so had breakfast here. Bacon and eggs was OK except eggs were very rubbery and was served on a timber platter which I do not like. Ordered a black tea and got a cup only half full. My wife's fruit toast and hot chocolate was good. Prices were OK. Service was good and very... More

Thank you for your review fiftiescouple13, unfortunately we were closed from the 24/12 to the 3/1 and we do not serve breakfast - you must have mistaken us for the Cafe Studio next door (which is in the lobby of the Adina Hotel). More

We went to Bar 138 for drinks and a 'corporate' function. The bar service was very good, prompt, courteous and friendly. The snack food provided was very well presented and extremely tasty. highly recommend for casual drinks.

Was in Perth on Monday and decided to stop by and have a quick bit. Ordered the Lamb Pizz. It was delicious. Staff were very friendly. Meals came out in no time at all . Nice to go somewhere where you can just sit and talk and have no competition from the music.

Can't fault the friendliness and efficiency of the staff but the food that we ordered wasn't good value for money. My daughter bought a chorizo pizza which, when it came, was deconstructed. Interesting concept but not what we were after. My husband paid $22 for a mushroom salad which was mostly lettuce and only a handful of mushrooms. It was... More
