If you love traditional French food, you’re going to want to jot down the name Angel’s House and watch out for it’s opening in Fremantle. The French restaurant is being brought to us by two brothers who grew up in the Provence region in southern France and were taught to cook traditional French dishes by their grandmother.
They both took a shining to it and younger brother Anthony went off to work in fine dining restaurants including the Michelin starred Platina Los Angeles before being hired by Guillaume Brahimi of Bistro Guillaume to run the Perth restaurant at just 24 years of age. His older brother Jeremy began his training with Thierry Maffre-Boge at the Michelin starred La Petite France in Maussane- Les- Alpilles before heading to Bali to open the much-loved Pearl which is known throughout Indonesia for its semi-gastronomique french dishes.
Jeremy recently moved to Perth and the two brothers came across an old heritage house at 24 Essex Street in Fremantle which reminded them of their childhood home and so the concept for Angel’s House was born.
The duo decided to renovate the place and turn it into a cosy bistro dishing up traditional French eats and share boards. They’ll be using local and seasonal produce so expect the best, but they are trying to turn the notion that French food need be expensive on its head. They want their restaurant to be accessible to everyone so they’ll be pricing the dishes reasonably and are focusing on setting up a more relaxed outdoor setting for people who don’t fancy sitting in the formal dining room.
The food will be accompanied by a small wine list with local WA wines and a few French drops too, so whether you want the full dining experience or you just want to nibble on some delicious bites with a glass of champagne, Angel’s House will fit the bill.
The opening date is yet to be formally announced, but it’s not too far off so watch this space.
In the meantime, you can head to this amazing new wine bar in the city.
