Ram­bla adds to river­front op­tions

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

TONY Glass and Anne Boys fol­lowed the trans­for­ma­tion of South Perth’s new­est river­front restau­rant for months with an­tic­i­pa­tion.

Liv­ing a short stroll away, they were among the first to try Ram­bla On Swan when it opened this month next to the renowned Co­cos, shar­ing a plate of oys­ters on the bal­cony to cre­ate a near-per­fect lunch scene.

Ram­bla is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the suite of venues owned by En­ter­tain­ment En­ter­prises, which also op­er­ates Em­pire Bar on Great East­ern High­way and city nightspots such as Tiger Lils and Para­mount night­club.

The new restau­rant and func­tion cen­tre is named af­ter the vi­brant and lively promenade Las Ram­blas in Barcelona and oc­cu­pies a space well known to Perth food­ies through the years as LinQ, The Oys­ter Bar and more re­cently Palais 85.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Hugh Brown said he ex­pected Ram­bla would be­come a pop­u­lar choice for wed­ding re­cep­tions, cor­po­rate lunches and spe­cial oc­ca­sion din­ners – as well as a first-class van­tage point for events such as New Year’s Eve and Aus­tralia Day.

Head chef Richard John­son has moved across from Em­pire Bar af­ter set­tling in Perth fol­low­ing years spent at elite Sydney venue The Es­tab­lish­ment.

Lo­cal res­i­dents Anne Boys and Tony Glass are served by Venice Molo at Ram­bla On Swan in South Perth.
