We all know our dads deserve the world (and more). So, we’ve found the next best thing (or thereabouts) and rounded up Perth’s very best Father’s Day lunches, presents and more, to really give him the royal treatment.
Whether he is into butchery, spooky walking tours, fine dining or BBQ, you’ll be sure to impress him this Father’s Day.
Looking to treat pops without blowing your budget? Canteen has a $45 set menu going on and, considering what you get, it's a total bargain. Start with cold cuts, mortadella, a Caprese salad that will make your heart sing and Shark Bay scallops that you won't want to share. Move on to one of their incredible pizzas—think fior di latte, nduja, pancetta, radicchio, pistachio and lemon zest—and then top the night off with their famous porchetta.
If you're hoping to celebrate Father's Day for the entire weekend, The Standard has got you covered on both Saturday and Sunday. Head in for a lazy afternoon filled with Nonna's baked meatballs, lasagne, arancini, burrata and, of course, plenty of wine.
For the dad who appreciates a good pub feed and the footy, The Camfield is the place to be for Father’s Day lunch in Perth. Bookings of six or more are available from 11.30am until 2pm in The Hall and we’d recommend hanging around to watch the Eagles play at 4:10pm. While you're there, you'll get a full tour of the in-house brewery, as well as live music for everyone to enjoy and of course, good food and booze. There's also going to be a bouncy castle to keep the rugrats entertained so you can enjoy your beer.
For a Greek feast that Dad won't forget for a while, head to Brika this Sunday. For $69 per person, you'll get more food than you can imagine as well as a glass of beer or house wine. To start, they've got their famous warm pita with tzatziki and melitzanosalata, but take it slow because mains sound even better. The saganaki is up for grabs along with slow-roasted lamb, chicken souvla, spanakopita, Cypriot salad and more. Finish the meal off with Loukamades and call it a day.
QT Perth is throwing the ultimate high tea with a twist for Father's Day. Swapping tea and bubbles for truffle fries, burgers and beer, this is one Dad will love. Treat him to veal tartare, mini cheeseburgers, sliders and fries, then finish up with a malt ice cream sundae and the sour cherry, chocolate and whisky mousse cigar. All with views from QT's amazing rooftop.
If your dad can't get enough of the delicious eats at Double Rainbow, you'll be pleased to hear they've got a $60 set menu on offer so there will be no bickering about what to order. Think oysters, prawn dumplings, red braised pork belly, mantou buns, chilli marron, Wagyu rump and more.
All three levels of The Reveley will be offering delicious eats for Father’s Day lunch, so there’s something for every kind of dad. The ground floor will be serving burgers and pints for just $30, while the dining room will be delivering the goods with their two-kilogram Blackwood Valley tomahawk with sides for $120. If neither of those tickle your fancy, there’s also Henry’s Rooftop Bar where you can treat dad to a Wagyu beef and bacon pizza for $25.
Sweetwater Rooftop Bar
One of our favourite rooftop bars is offering up a Father’s Day feed me menu to take the fuss out ordering. With dishes like charred king prawns and a premium WA Wagyu beef, you won't be disappointed.
Tonic + Ginger
For the dad who loves his Asian food, Tonic + Ginger has got you sorted for Father’s Day lunch. A modern Asian set menu will be on offer so you and the fam can celebrate in style. Dishes like duck and glass noodle spring roll, spiced beef tataki and dark chocolate marquise are all on offer, so don't miss out.
The State Buildings have got an event for every kind of dad. Beer lovers will want to get to Hops for Pops at Petition Kitchen—where dads and grandads will be treated to complimentary brews from Eagle Bay Brewing—or the Gents Afternoon Tea at Beer Corner. This is no ordinary High Tea; think beer snacks like pork sausage paired with local crafties. If Dad isn't a beer man, get him to Chill n Grill in the Long Chim courtyard for a BBQ feast he’ll remember.
If your dad is more of a fine-diner, the Ritz-Carlton is putting on just the thing for him. Hosting a special edition of Afternoon Tea at Hearth, the menu will feature WA eats like blue swimmer crab, Wagyu and lamb, while dessert is all about the spiced rum yeast cake. The food will be paired with tea, Howard Park sparkling or ‘R’ de Ruinart, but you’ve also got the option to add a Glenmorangie Whiskey Flight to sample three of their best whiskeys for $115; just in case your dad’s not that keen on tea and champagne.
