The 50 Best Perth Restaurants To Tick Off In 2024

By Claire Logan

one of Perth's best restaurants for March 2024

Whether you're a Perth/Boorloo local, new to town or just visiting (hi), it's only natural to seek out the absolute best dining experiences on the west coast. Thankfully, that's kinda our specialty.

At Urban List, we're constantly asked where to eat in Perth, so it's a topic we've put A LOT of (some would say too much) thought into. Amazing food and a great vibe are key, but how it comes, we're not too fussed about. A cheap and cheerful dumpling house, a wine bar by the beach with fancy snacks, a sustainable fine diner repping the finest Western Australian produce—if we're obsessing over a spot (new or old), you'll find it listed here amongst Perth's best restaurants. 

The Best Perth Restaurants At A Glance

Yiamas

26 Denis Street, Subiaco WA 6008

Forget about the Roman empire, at Yiama's they're taking inspo from ancient Greece. From banging mezze to big meaty plates, the share-style food menu is underpinned by the rich, smokey flavours coming from their coal grill, with plenty of perfect pours to match. Grab a date or a mate and head in around sunset so you can soak up some of the stunning natural light.

Lola's

41 Market St, Fremantle WA 6160

If Harry Peasnell has a hand in something, we want in. The ex-Melbournian, ex-fine dining chef slid firmly into our favourites list for his Freo sandwich bar, Peggy's (named after his firstborn). So when he announced their follow-up, Lola's (dedicated to his second daughter), we didn't need too much convincing. Here you'll find NYC meets Aussie pizzas in fluffy, deep dish varieties and thin, crispy based pies, all featuring a slow fermented dough. 

Bertie

77 Old Perth Rd, Bassendean WA 6054

Secret’s out—we’re a tiny bit in love with Bassendean's newest addition, Bertie. With an ex-Vue De Monde chef at the helm, this wine bar is all about fancying up British-inspired classics like the humble scotch egg, pork terrine and steak and chips. Our fave thing right now though, might just be their ice cream sandwich spin on the humble sticky date pud. It's likely to disappear when the temp drops, so we suggest getting it in your gob while you can.

And because Bertie straddles the line between bar and restaurant, the wine list is endless, the cocktails are punchy and bonus points that they smash out some great non-alc tipples for the designated drivers too, so you'll be just as pleased if you pull in for a coupla rounds.

Vin Populi

11 High St, Fremantle WA 6160

Brought to us by the same legends behind Balthazar and No MafiaVin Populi (Italian for 'wine for the people') is a light, breezy and sophisticated wine bar slash restaurant serving up antipasti, fresh made pasta and beautiful local meats alongside a cracking 160-bottle Italian-Australian wine list and sexy Italian cocktails. Start with a few tasty morsels to share then dive head first into a bowl of pasta before finishing with some Italian doughnuts and a nip of Frangelico.

Ludo, the swanky new basement joint inside The Station (the mutli-venue dining hub in South Perth from the crew behind The Old Synagogue and The Beaufort) may have only just opened its doors, but Head Chef Ludo Mulot's indulgent French menu and the trés romantic interiors have already won our hearts. Grab a caviar martini and a lobster éclair before diving into divine plates like confit wagin duck leg, chicken ballotine and pan fried rankin cod. J'adore!

Shui

12 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco WA 6008

With mouth watering menu items like prawn crumpets, hot hoi sin duck air doughnuts, beef tartare with fried shallot ice cream and wood roasted pork belly served with mien "crack" sauce, it's easy to over order at Subiaco's charming new modern Asian eateryShui. But hey, when the food's this good you may as well go all in. Throw on a Coco Bananas or Only Fams Martini from the cocktail list and don't leave til you wipe those plates clean.

Wildflower

1 Cathedral Avenue, Perth WA 6000

Sublime CBD and river views, world-class service and a mind-blowing degustation experience that stands up against the best in Australia—Wildflower really is the pinnacle of dining in Perth. The menu responds to the six Noongar seasons with contemporary fine dining flair, taking lead from the people who have lived and cared for this country for thousands of years. Right now, you'll find an abundance of seafood on the menu, from fish, crab and mussels to wetland delights like marron and gilgies.

If you're short on time and/or dollars, the Flow lunch is a great way to get a glimpse of the goods. Available Wednesday to Sunday, the $69 menu will get you two courses plus bread and butter and sides, with the option to go for either an entree and main or main and dessert. 

Long Chim

Corner of Barrack street &, St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000

Long Chim restaurant in Perth

The Perth population collectively died and went to heaven when David Thompson brought us Long Chim. Set in the converted basement of the State Buildings, you’ll enjoy the vibrant umbrella-topped terrace as much as the spicy chicken larb. You'll also want to make room for the crunchy prawns, charred noodles and banana roti, preferably washed down with something from their exceptional cocktail menu. And if you ever see ma hor (a tasty pineapple and minced meat morsel) on the menu, order a round immediately—it's heaven in one bite.

Post

1 Cathedral Ave, Perth WA 6000

Post restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Post | Instagram

Is our obsession with the State Buildings obvious yet? This is fancy opulence in its most justifiable form. Our hearts melt at the thought of their famous ricotta gnocchi, still handmade daily by matriarch Ada Scaffidi, but we somehow manage to find a new favourite every month at Post. Right now, it's the hearty paccheri with pork and fennel ragu. Everything on the modern Italian menu showcases local purveyors and the wonderfulness that is WA. The elegant dining space only adds to the experience.

Petition

State Buildings, St Georges Tce &, Barrack St, Perth WA 6000

Petition restaurant in Perth

Rounding out our State Buildings quartet, Petition falls in line with the rest of the first class eateries within this stunning heritage complex. The menu is seasonal, with an emphasis on showcasing the very best of WA’s local produce. You’ll never leave disappointed, especially if you've got a serve of their iconic broccoli salad on your table.

Canteen Pizza

32 Ardross St, Applecross WA 6153

Canteen Pizza might not have those iconic Cottesloe beach vibes anymore, but the new suburban spot boasts a pretty slick fit-out and cruisy alfresco vibes that pair perfectly with the casual pizza night atmosphere.

With perfectly charred crusts and quality toppings, their woodfired pizzas are all fantastic, but if you wanna try something new, we're pretty obsessed with the Rottnest swordfish schnitzel. It's got a golden, light and crispy crumb and delicate flakey centre, and comes served with a banging little pickled cucumber and watercress salad topped with capers, bottarga sauce and soft herbs. 

The Heritage

131 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000

Heritage restaurant in Perth
Image credit: The Heritage | Instagram

The Heritage celebrates its roots thanks to its dazzling design, complete with Italian marble floors, dramatic high ceilings and large windows overlooking Brookfield Place. Most of the menu is inspired by European classics and underpinned by the finest local produce. It's refined, beautiful and downright delicious, and pairs perfectly with a martini or bottle of something nice from their extensive range of international and local wines (which hot tip: you can also buy to go now).

Hearth

1 Barrack St, Perth WA 6000

Hearth restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Hearth | Instagram

Hearth is the jaw-dropping restaurant attached to The Ritz-Carlton Perth at Elizabeth Quay. The fit-out is light, bright and uber-relaxing with views of our beautiful Swan River. While the menu is all about championing WA produce and native ingredients. 

No Mafia 

252 William St, Northbridge WA 6003

No Mafia restaurant in Perth
Image credit: No Mafia | Instagram

Taking inspiration from the recipes of Southern Italy, the food at No Mafia is simple but delicious and bolstered by an impressive wine list featuring Italian and Australian drops. Grab a cosy booth or sit on the outdoor balcony for some of the best people-watching in Perth. Our forever go-to here is the duck pappardelle, featuring silky, homemade pasta cooked just right and a rich, tender ragu that you will not be able to stop thinking about. 

James Parker Sushi And Sake

2/182 James St, Northbridge WA 6003

From the moment you arrive at James Parker’s stunning timber framed entry, you'll know you’re in for something very special and uniquely Japanese here. This is not your casual neighbourhood Japanese joint, this is high end Japanese dining, so we'll warn you now that it will be a little pricey. Once you see the show-stopping assorted sashimi (it's more of a piece of art) arrive at your table, you'll agree it's money well spent. Feeling extra fancy? Book in for the whole omakase experience.

Il Falco

214 Scarborough Beach Rd, Mount Hawthorn WA 6016

There are plenty of awesome pizza restaurants in Perth, but this newbie set inside a cool converted garage, is up their with the best of them. Plus, with plenty of space to spread out and a fun playhouse, Il Falco is perfect for families.

Of course, the food is exceptional too. From the smooth San Marzano tomato base to the creamy burrata, Head Chef Marcello Segalina is incredibly particular about his ingredients—and the proof of this obsession is in the perfecto pizzas. Throw on negronis and spritzes on tap, a banging wine list and the best pannacotta in Perth, and you have all the makings of a delicious night out. 

La Cholita

279 William St, Northbridge WA 6003

La Cholita restaurant in Perth
Image credit: La Cholita | Instagram

La Cholita has taken over ten years of margarita shaking and taco slinging in its stride. The cool Northbridge cantina is every bit as vibing as the day it opened (and the tequila just as potent). We're big fans of the speedy service, that'll see a bowl of fried tortillas and guac land at your table faster than it takes you to pick between the five different margs on the drinks list. From there we'd suggest you start small rather than ordering all at once—it comes out quick and your eyes are often bigger than your stomach. Get a couple of tacos (the baja fish is iconic), a quesadilla and some tostadas, then just add more as you go.

Cooee

171-173 Mounts Bay Rd, Perth WA 6000

Cooee restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Cooee | Instagram

If you're chasing sophistication and riverside ambience, you can't go wrong with Cooee. Grab a seat outside and kickstart your modern Australian dining experience with a plate of the house focaccia served with whipped eggplant and a serve of La Delizia's stracciatella before tucking into meatier options like the wagyu steak frites and roasted spatchcock chicken. 

Bivouac Canteen & Bar

198 William St, Northbridge WA 6003

Bivouac restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Bivouac | Instagram

One of the most difficult places to pick a menu fave in Northbridge, Bivouac is the best for casual, yet exceedingly delicious dining. The grilled halloumi with yuzu honey is to die for, the slow braised goat shoulder will leave you more than satisfied, and those fluffy flatbreads will come in oh-so handy for mopping every last bit of tasty sauce from your plate. 

fleur

531 Wellington St, Perth WA 6000

Inside fleur restaurant in perth
Image credit: fleur | Instagram

Sitting pretty inside The Royal Hotel, fleur is as beautiful and as fancy as she sounds. With local produce front and centre, there’s always plenty to get excited about here. Just think beef tartare, honey roasted wagin duck and roquefort ice cream. Paired with a curated wine list and equally lovely interiors, this is one of the best dining experiences in Perth. Hell, there’s even a caviar menu if you’re really feeling extra. 

Authentic Bites Dumpling House

3/145 Newcastle St, Perth WA 6000

Authentic Bites Dumpling House in Perth
Image credit: Authentic Bites Dumpling House | Instagram

If you haven’t been to Authentic Bites Dumpling House then you must not like dumplings. While the vibe of this place is pretty casual, we still rate it as one of the best restaurants in Perth. The xiao long bao here are ridiculous and they have got the whole of Perth acting like crazy people lining up outside, rain, hail or shine. The wontons in spicy sauce are up there as one of our favourite Perth dishes of all time. If the line is too long, hot tip: you can walk down to Juicy Bao Bao instead. It's the same crew and features the same sort of eats, so you will leave just as pleased.

Balthazar

6 The Esplanade, Perth WA 6000

Balthazar restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Balthazar | Instagram

Around since the ‘90s (albeit under a few different ownerships), Balthazar is a Perth institution. The swanky dining den is situated beneath the beautiful art deco Lawson apartment building in Perth and offers up a refined menu packed with dishes that are equal parts art and deliciousness. It was also Nigella Lawson's restaurant of choice when she was in Perth recently, so you're in good company here.

Tosaka Ramen

305 William St, Northbridge WA 6003

If you’re a ramen fan who doesn’t mind a little bit of garlic—actually, make that a lot of garlic—you’re going to want to slurp your way through a bowl or two of Tosaka Ramen's creamy and rich black garlic tori paitan. Tori paitan is the chicken-based cousin of the pork-based tonkotsu ramen broth we’ve all come to know and love, and Tosaka has three delightful varieties of the good stuff packed with chicken chashu, spring onion, boiled eggs and more. 

Double Rainbow

224 William St, Perth WA 6000

Double Rainbow restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Double Rainbow | Instagram

Double Rainbow has to be one of the best spots to start a night in Northbridge. Located inside The Rechabite's funky heritage halls, the Asian-inspired restaurant is always bright, buzzy and brimming with phenomenal Asian-inspired eats. Far from authentic, this playful menu is a hardcore fusion of flavours with endless remixes of iconic dishes that will blow you away, plus, the vegan options are the bomb.

Will St

The oysters from Will Street restaurant in Leederville, Perth

One of the few silver linings to come out of COVID was when Will Meyrick, the chef-owner behind super popular Balinese establishments Sarong and Mama San (to name a couple), decided to move his family here while Bali was in shutdown mode, and open up his own Perth venue, Will St. We love that while the menu takes cues from Meyrick's endless Asian culinary adventures, the dishes lean heavily on native, local produce. Think fresh local oysters topped with a sweet, salty and sour native galangal and lemon myrtle nam jihm dressing (our fave way to take oysters now) and Calcutta goat nihari with warrigal greens. Read more about our most recent visit here.

Testun Bar

2/760 Beaufort St, Mount Lawley WA 6050

Testun Bar in Perth
Image credit: Testun | Instagram

Unapologetically loud, cheeky and a little offbeat, the vibe at Testun is ridiculously playful and the food follows suit. Expect unique, contemporary Italian fused with global flavours and plenty of sass. 

Casa

399 Oxford St, Mount Hawthorn WA 6016

Infused with Si Paradiso DNA, no surprise to see this Italian-style bar slash restaurant has become an essential part of Perth's drinking and dining scene. It's more wine bar than restaurant, but you can quite easily fill up on punchy nibbles or a bowl of handmade pasta. They've also just opened a takeaway and dine-in pizza joint next door, where you can order bottles of wine at takeaway prices.

Lotus

521 Beaufort St, Highgate WA 6003

Lotus restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Lotus | Instagram

The Mount Lawley precinct from the team behind The Old Synagogue has multiple spots to eat and drink inside. The standout for us, though, is definitely Lotus. Headed up by Head Chef Sundoo Kim (whose extensive resume includes the likes of Chin Chin in Melbourne), the modern Asian menu is full of punchy nibbles, hearty curries and spicy salads. Our tip: just go the 'feed me' menu and let the kitchen make the decisions because it's all far too good to pick between. Although if you do throw in one extra dish, let it be the flakey butter chicken puffs.

Si Paradiso

1/446 Beaufort St, Highgate WA 6003

Si Paradiso restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Si Paradiso | Instagram

Si Paradiso’s retro Italian vibes will have you feeling like vintage Amalfi has arrived in Perth. Expect epic drinks and a space you'll never want to leave both indoors and out, all backed up by their mouth-watering Italian eats—think share plates like kingfish crudo, burrata and cacio e pepe, banging gourmet pizzas and a couple of classic desserts to wrap it all up. Good luck choosing.

Le Rebelle 

676 Beaufort St, Mount Lawley WA 6050

Le Rebelle restaurant in Perth

Le Rebelle is an intimate restaurant and wine bistro bar, inspired by the old romanticism (‘romantica’) of classic Parisian and New York bistros. With beautiful and cosy interiors, atmospheric lighting and ace staff to guide you through your night, Le Rebelle is a breath of fresh air. The menu is full of 'classiques' like the much-loved crab toast, the duck liver parfait or the Wagin duck with frites, and the drinks program is just as phenomenal.

Daph’s

1/226 Oxford St, Leederville WA 6007

Daph's Perth
Image credit: Daph's | Instagram

Unassuming, quaint and nestled right across from the Re Store on Oxford Street sits Daph’s, a darling 20-seater restaurant that celebrates the power of fire through their six-course nightly degustation. They opened last year with a simple concept: choose the 5.45pm or 8pm sitting, wine pairing or no wine pairing and the rest is done for you. Head chef and owner Pepe frequently changes the menu based on the best seasonal produce and his newest creations, and we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

The Corner Dairy

260 Woodside St, Doubleview WA 6018

Doubleview sure has done well this year, with The Corner Dairy adding another notch in the belt for this bustling little neighbourhood. The Corner Dairy serves up a stellar list of Aussie natural wines and craft beers in a casual “come as you are” setting. In the kitchen, the crew impresses with brilliant share plates like kingfish ceviche with smoked tiger's milk and Geraldton wax and a local stracciatella with witlof and kumquat marmalade.

Cosy Del's

Just down the road from the Vic Park Station (technically in Lathlain) sits Cosy Del’s, a magical homage to all things Northern Italy. This moody, intimate bar and restaurant is passionate about highlighting only the finest of Mediterranean wines and spirits, as well as smashing out some absolutely tantalising dishes from the kitchen as well. Perfect for when you’re after a more sultry atmosphere, we can’t get enough.  

Old Young’s Kitchen

10581A W Swan Rd, Henley Brook WA 6055

Old Young's restaurant in Perth
Image credit: Old Young's | Instagram

With a chef of Rohan Park’s calibre at its helm, Old Young’s Kitchen has to be one of the best spots to eat in the Swan Valley, hell even the whole of Perth. Grey saltbush, samphire, Geraldton wax, lily pilly, quandong and more all find their place on plates, and given the team’s dedication to sourcing ingredients responsibly, it’s the perfect way to explore native produce and flavours. Pair the mind-blowing feast with a few tipples from the banging little cocktail menu (the clarified pina colada is our favourite), and you’ll wonder why you don’t go to the Swan Valley more often.

La Lune restaurant in Perth

Located in a charming heritage building on George Street in East Fremantle, La Lune is arguably the most beautiful bistro in Perth. And thankfully, its Parissiene-inspired food and beverage menu is just as impressive. Our recommendations? Get started with a round of martini parisiannes as you tuck into steak tartare, swimmer crab vol-au-vents and potato rosti topped with smoked salmon and cultured cream. Then move on to French wine with succulent duck breast, steak frites and dauphinoise potatoes. 

Nextdoor

79 Angelo St, South Perth WA 6151

Nextdoor restaurant in South Perth
Image credit: Nextdoor | Instagram

Nextdoor—the South Perth bar and grill connected to a family butcher shop—went through a bit of reset last year. Behind the restaurant's showstopping wood-fired grill, you'll now find Head Chef Elliot Sawiris (ex-Rockpool, Palace Arcade and Lulu La Delizia) doing his thing. The new menu features a good mix of playful snacks and affordable bites perfect for sharing over a couple of beers after work, through to more serious steaks and sides if you're keen to treat yourself. 

Bread In Common

43 Pakenham St, Fremantle WA 6160

Bread is the main game at this lofty warehouse space in Fremantle, and with a menu designed to accompany their doughs, you’ll be (unregretfully) eating a lot of it. The menu is seasonal, but expect winners like rustic lamb ribs or baked eggplant to emerge from the long, open kitchen.

Young George restaurant
Image credit: Young George | Instagram

Headed up by award-winning Chef Melissa Palinkas, Young George dishes up smashable snacks, housemade charcuterie and smokey eats cooked over coal or wood fire. Our suggestion: get the milk buns with ramen fried chicken, fermented slaw and caesar mayo. To top it off,  everything here is backed by a strong waste-free philosophy.

Lions And Tigers

8 Bannister St, Fremantle WA 6160

Lions And Tigers best restaurant
Image credit: Lions And Tigers | Instagram

Lions and Tigers is the kind of place that Fremantle locals try to keep hidden from the rest of Perth and we can see why. The team has perfected modern Indian cuisine and every dish we’ve tried is teeming with flavour. You don’t want to go past the roti tacos—the filling changes on the reg so you can keep going back for more—and the sourdough naan is basically a right of passage.
