Meet Servo, The New Bar And Eatery Tucked Away In Leedy’s Electric Lane

Big things are happening in Leederville. Like, really big things. We’re talking a whole swag of slick new openings, revamps and extensions set to bring this once-bustling inner city hood back to its former glory just in time for summer. And Servo, might just be the most exciting of them all. 

Nestled in the newly created Electric Lane, this fresh-faced all-day dining joint is part of the Leederville redevelopment by FJM (the same people behind the State Buildings) and the perfect place for your next get-together—especially since the leafy outdoor yard bar and late-night kebab stall are officially open for business now too. 

One glance at the menu, and you’ll quickly realise they’re not conforming to a particular theme or genre here, but rather carving out a uniquely delicious culinary experience all their own that effortlessly straddles the nutritiously wholesome down to the deathly decadent. They’ve purposefully loaded the lighter eats onto the lunch menu—complete with a rotating selection of huge salad bowls you can choose from each day—and saved the heavier, more indulgent dishes for dinner time (when you don’t have to head back to the office).

We tried our best to taste as much of the menu as humanly possible, but it’s kinda huge so it’ll take a few goes to get through everything. Honestly, we’re not mad about having to come back again, though.

Stand out dishes from our selection include the raw fish plate, eggplant with garlic yoghurt, casarecce with anchovy and seaweed crumbs, and mixed shish grill, which comes with a selection of skewered meats with pickles, flatbread and the most delicious garlic sauce. Finish with a little peanut butter ice cream and you’ll be well and truly satisfied.

They’ve also got a feed me option that’ll go down a treat if choosing seems too damn hard (feels). Oh and it’s worth noting, they’re great at accomodating dietaries so just ask the wait staff and they’ll point you to some options or rework a dish to suit you.

Those chasing a drink can get busy exploring the vibrant wine and cocktail menu, featuring old mates like your classic chardy alongside funky pet nats, spicy margaritas and seasonal spritzes. The wine list is split up based on flavour profile so it’s easy to narrow down on what you’re after. Not drinking? The non-alcoholic menu here is equally delicious so you won’t feel like you’re missing out.
