REVIEW

No, Google Maps is right: this venue really does share an address with an office/apartment block near the picturesque Kwinana Freeway. While the location (and irksome traffic noise) isn't ideal, team Red Cabbage work hard to put guests at ease. The hushed, low-lit room chimes with the restaurant's fine-dining aspirations, but swatches of Fornasetti wallpaper betray a rebellious streak. Grilled prawn sandwiched between pickled lettuce and kimchi mayonnaise feels like a nouveau prawn cocktail - and reveals the kitchen's fondness for technique and surprising diners. Chocolate shavings round off the sharp raspberry purée served alongside gamy  Wagin duck. The fruit and cocoa combination gets revisited via the chocolate mousse with burnt chocolate tuiles and raspberry meringue. The drinks package keeps it local and features Australian beers and wines. In short, Red Cabbage is a date-night contender for grown-up diners.
