Smart be those who build their restaurants on sand…or something like that.
In the past it’s been a tradeoff between ocean views or good food with plenty of seaside dining options failing to live up to their gorgeous coastal real estate.
Now Perth has a plethora of fabulous quality dining options popping up along our fabulous coastline (and about time too!) We’ve checked out these new beauties and served them up to you with your tried and true coastal haunts. Here are 11 of the best beachside restaurants in Perth.
Overlooking the beautiful Swanbourne beach, Chef Oliver Gould’s The Shorehouse is the place to soak up the summery days and nights. Grab a seat out on the deck for a sunset with a bespoke Bloody Mary and fried buttermilk chicken. Better than summer in the Hamptons, not that I’ve been…but you can imagine.
Bib & Tucker
Freo darling Bib & Tucker, on the Leighton beach shore doesn’t just get by on its turquoise waters and white sand good looks. Head here for some of Perth’s best beachside dining, from Instagram-worthy pancake breakfasts to sunsets and charcoal roasted Freo octopus.
Located so close to the water you can feel almost the sand in your toes, The Hamptons is another strong contender in the beachside dining game. From smashed avo, acai bowls and French toast on offer for brekky and crisp barramundi, honey glazed pork loin and duck breast for lunch and dinner, you know you won’t be disappointed.
Traditional Italian canteen Il Lido boasts a winning combination of genuinely delicious Italian fare with million dollar views. You haven’t known happiness until you’ve had an Aperol Spritz and charcutrerie platter while gazing out at the iconic Cottesloe Beach. If you tire of the gorgeous views, just cast your eyes over the impressive wall-to-wall wine collection. Better yet, drink their impressive wall-to-wall wine collection.
Clancy’s Fish Pub
There’s nothing better than seafood on the sand and Clancy’s Fish Pub ticks all the boxes. Perched on the sand dunes of the fabulous City Beach and quirkily decorated with fishing paraphernalia, the laid back bohemian vibes here are irresistible.
Who could deny the formidable oceanside dining and beer-ing at Fremantle institution Little Creatures. Grab a pint of one of their famous brews, some woodfire pizza and soak up the quintessentially Freo harbor views.
