Opened in 2009 by Julien, a Parisian with a passion for good food and good wine, Sante Wine Bar is taking the Perth food and bar scene by storm. With a flair for the new and innovative, Sante is not your average wine bar, with an equal focus being on the food as well as the wine. A great deal of care is taken here, to ensure there is the perfect wine for every dish on their creative menu. The Spanish and French cuisines are both well-represented here, and you’ll find delicious tapas-style treats, as well as fully fledged meals so no matter if it’s after-work drinks or a special meal with friends or family, you’re certainly well catered for at this Perth institution.
If tapas is what you desire, tuck into some tiger prawns cooked in a chilli butter, roasted courgettes topped with feta cheese and tomato pulp, king scallops and Spanish pancetta, or spicy pork meatballs in a bravas sauce. For those with a heartier appetite, keep an eye out for the paella for two, with your choice of meat, fish or veggie filling, or opt for the whole grilled sea bream with jacket potato and vegetables, perfect with a glass of one of their finest whites. So do yourself a favour and pay Sante Wine Bar a visit, even if only to begin working your way through their incredible wine list. You’ll find them in the Perth city centre, just along South St John’s Place, but be sure to book in advance.
Great service as usual and very accommodating to dietary requests. Fab cocktails and tapas in welcoming surroundings. Would highly recommend to all!! Love this place
Lovely visit to Sante. Staff were very friendly and relaxed and catered for our every need. Atmosphere was lovely, very chilled out and fun. Food was delightful as was the house rose wine and all at great value.
Wonderful culinary experience with a wide variety of tasty dishes with diverse flavours. Excellent wine, great ambiance and the service was fantastic. One of my top places to go in Perth for food.
Great food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Excellent menu with lots of choice. Specials board very extensive too. Good value for money and will definitely be back.
My overall experience was a good one. I went with a friend for an 'above average' night out and the food was glorious (ribeye steak) with charming service by a young waiter who made sure we had everything we wanted but was not intrusive. The only downside was a large table of young girls screaming and squealing at each other in an adjacent table, using their mobile phones constantly. I may be getting on a bit and fully understand the enthusiasm of youth (I was young once!), but I do believe when dining out a sense of decorum should be displayed. Keep the phone use limited please. Otherwise, a great place to eat for grown ups.
Still very good, but perhaps not quite as excellent as it used to be. At least with the dishes I had today. The pumpkin soup was good, but only warm when received and got cold quite quickly. The roast shoulder of lamb, again, good, but when I cook this at home it is much better and their veg was strange. It was more like leftover peelings of veg roasted to almost burnt, but then mushy at the same time. The service is always good, even when we had a lad on his first day, who didn't know very much, but he was keen and kept smiling all the same. Their wine by the glass is quite pricey. This time the only real annoying thing was the music - worse than 'elevator' music and it kept going and going and going...
Arrived on time for our reservation, were sat at the bar for 30 mins, during which time two other parties arrived and were seated. When we enquired how long our table would be, the owner was not interested in stoping to speak with us, simply said soon as he kept walking past. Two minutes later we were seated right next to the busy kitchen. Told this to our waitress and that we were not happy, we were then asked by the manager if we wanted to move, waitress then moved us to another table that has been free for some time. Food was lovely but we were left wondering what it was about us that resulted in a poorer service than those around us appeared to be getting.
Lovely atmosphere, excellent food. They even do a 'driver's glass of wine' to keep you safely under the limit if you want to mark the occasion that way. The tapas was lovely with both the kind of things you would expect (patatas bravas, calimara, jamon iberico) and plenty that you might not. And the sweets were just delightful. A perfect Big Birthday lunch.
Great Saturday evening with friends in this lively restaurant; glad we booked as I don't think we'd have got a table. Pondered the menu then asked our waiter Julien (who turned out to be the owner) to bring us a selection of tapas, whatever he thought best. Everything was perfect. Got through some great bottles of wine as well. Can reccommend!
Busy and cheerful on a Friday evening. Background music too noisy to start, but volume turned down/off when we asked. Very relaxed yet attentive waiters, good house red, interesting draught lager. Food marginally slow, but all four of us found it superb - sea bass, duck breast and sea trout en croute; also terrine (more toast would have been better) and desserts went down well. Fine coffee too. A very fine experience.
Awesomely awesome restaurant ! Food is delicious and the staff are all super friendly and chatty. Been going there about 5years now and have never had anything less than a perfectly delicious meal. If I stayed in Perth I'd be a regular customer. They have Specials in addition to main menu and they really are top notch.
Olives and bread with olive oil and balsamic all came free. The coffee came with 3 petit fours which were delicious. We had the cheese fondue to share which was nice and had a lovely accompanying salad. The only disappointment was that it only came with bread and cauliflower. That was nice but the meat version said cured meats and "vegs" so we expected more than one veg. Would have been easy to chop up a carrot and even an apple
Excellent food. We had tapas. Scallops were a highlight but all fresh , tasty and well presented. French Martini on arrival excellent and very good value wine list. Service great throughout. Finish with the chocolate fondue, it is rich, tasty and great fun to share!
Food was lovely and staff were attentive but not over-bearing and there was no rush to give up our table. Good central location in the city centre. Just wish we had left enough room for some of the fantastic sounding desserts!
Food was good. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable. However we were in the corner and it seems that they would sometimes forget about us, so service felt very slow at times. Don't let this put you off though as it was just a small thing.
Fabulous relaxed experience where we had the most delicious selection of house tapas, accompanied by a lovely rose wine and fabulous service. The surroundings here are chic and the atmosphere is so welcoming. Can't wait to come back already!
Reduced tapas menu but the food was excellent and some nice daily specials. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive but not on top of you all the time which made the atmosphere relaxed and with time between courses.
The service was very good, nice and relaxed and attentive. We had Christmas dinner at Sante last year and were very impressed hence the reason we came back this year. Unfortunately the food was not nearly as good. The turkey was overcooked and dry. The roast potatoes were hard. The beef wellington was half the size of last year - in general the portions were small. Disappointed and will not return for our office night out next year.
Six of us had a meal at Sante on Saturday night, and thoroughly enjoyed it, without exception. The tapas which we had was excellent with superb flavours and great presentation. We'll certainly be back SOON !!!
I Just love Santes and I funding it difficult to go anywhere else given the excellent food wine presentation and service. We love to enjoy fine dining and find Santes to be one of our favourites.
As someone who frequents this restaurant fairly regularly, I am in the happy position to report that while the food is always of the highest standard, yesterday's was as good as we have ever had.
Great food and atmosphere. Excellent for a family lunch or intimate dinner. All the family enjoy our visits and are always well looked after. Highly recommended if you are in Perth for the day.
Excellent food and service as always, Julian and the team continually provide an excellent standard and quality dishes particularly the daily specials. If you haven't been, give it a try, you don't be disappointed.
Good food with really top quality ingredients, really enjoyed the whole experience of it. Toilets nice and clean (which is very important when dining out). Would recommend to others and look forward to returning.
Four of us had tapas and wine on A Friday evening to celebrate a birthday - nice relaxed atmosphere with good food - especially the chocolate fondue! We were able to reserve a window seat which made a nice difference.
great food ; great service as the staff are really friendly and attentive ; great menu at a very reasonable price. The décor is very chic French/Spanish which adds to the general atmosphere.
Excellent welcome, great interaction with all the waiting staff, and the food was fabulous. And they called us straight away after one if the party left his wallet on the table!
The tapas menu was not only varied but also so different from those offered elsewhere.The food was just fabulous ,relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere what more can I say ,can't wait to return.
One of the best restaurants in Perthshire. The quality of the tapas is consistently high, with a great variety. The service is excellent and the price very reasonable given the quality.
We go to Sante fairly regularly and we've never had less than great service and food. Great atmosphere, wonderful food whether you have tapas or one of the specials, welcoming staff.
Great food and atmosphere - we had 9 tapas between 3 people and it was great to get to try lots of different dishes and flavours. A fun night was had.
Excellent food and lovely ambience. A thoroughly enjoyable experience on a wet and windy New Year's Eve. Will definitely spread the word about this gem of a tapas bar. Love it!
Excellent service. Food was good but ideally would have liked a fresh salad on tapas menu. Also, there was no vegetarian main on the set menu. The trio of desserts, which was actually 4 desserts, was superb.
Superb food , wine and ambience! The venison burgers and cote de boeuf were outstanding! Service and atmosphere were very agreeable. Ecxcellent for lunch dinner or just wine and tapas!
Always fantastic food and great service. Ideal for those avoiding gluten as menu clearly labelled and lots of choice. Lovely cocktails too! Always dine here when I am in Perth
Fabulous friendly service from the moment we walked in the door - acknowledged, jackets taken & shown straight to our table Also, excellent quality of food and drink as always.
told to sit at the bar when we arrived. Waited for over it 10mins before someone asked for our drinks order. Meal was excellent however, trying to order a 2nd glass of wine took ages. Staff seemed to be running around like headless chickens!
Great food and good service, very enjoyable experience. We ordered food from the tapas menu which was good value for money. Had the house wine which we all enjoyed.
Excellent service & great food. Had a very leisurely lunch in a relaxed atmosphere. Good value for money also. Will definitely be back and will recommend Sante to friends.
Greeted the moment we came in. Good food and desserts to die for. Definitely go back. Ambience excellent. Very helpful staff. Tapas excellent and could have eaten lots of them because they were delicious.
Terrific ambience, attentive staff, excellent food, thoroughly enjoyable evening had by the four of us, For sure we shall return in the new year, Thank you to all
Not up to it's usual standard. Had to send main course back as a lot of the pastry was raw, received another & it initially looked cooked but again found part of the dish completely raw!! There were other issues which just added up to a spoiled birthday treat, So disappointing as always loved eating here.
We always try to eat at Sante when we visit Perth. The tapas are fantastic especially the belly pork. Great atmosphere and excellent service. god value for money.
Fantastic meal and first class service have been many times before and will certainly continue to keep going never dissapoints with the menu choice outstanding wine list also
Excellent service and great food. Varied tapas menu and specials board made for a great evening. Will definitely be back in the near future. Good value for money.
Fantastic food, great staff and service, would highly reccommend , a little slice of Spain within Perth. Completed my son's graduation day perfectly, the coffee was good too.
Fantastic food as always. Experience slightly let down by the restaurant manager, who was not his usual cheerful welcoming self. Off day perhaps but appearing jaded is not conducive to a nice experience
Excellent food with good range of wine and other drinks available. First-rate service from the moment we entered. Excellent set menu at reasonable price. Very well presented in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
Attentive, pleasant staff; lovely food; great ambience! The menu provided lots of choice, supplemented by many 'specials' on the board. Will be back to try the Tapas!
Good value as always, although tapas menu is a little on the small side now it could do with a few more options. Six tapas and wine for Thirty quid good value
