Perth Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Perth

August 9, 2017 Madelene Haan

Perched on the banks of the wide Swan River, between the Indian Ocean and the sands of the Nullarbor Desert, Perth is one of the world's most isolated cities, yet still boasts an active beach scene and smokin’ nightlife. Family-friendly Cottesloe is brimming with swimmers, surfers and snorkelers. Head north to Scarborough for a spirited beachside club scene. Coo at cute marsupials on ferry-accessible Rottnest Island, and don’t miss the views from King's Park and Botanic Gardens.

Balthazar Bar Restaurant

Bar scene, special occasion dining, entertaining clients

Reviewed By Dela520 - Bountiful, Utah

We dined early, and the place got more and more crowded. I would say that a reservation is a must. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, especially on the wine side. This was the best dinner we had in Perth.
The flies gras parfait was too die for.

Yes, that's correct. This restaurant serves vegetarian buffet where you eat as you like and pay what you like. There is no price neither a check. It's your call! I paid AUD15 for my meal. It's certainly worth the amount.

Can not recommend this place enough, such an original breakfast menu and consistent high quality. You can watch the chef finish plating each meal and feel the pride in his work. Has a funky inner Melbourne feel and very laid back atmosphere. So enjoy this place each and every time we eat there.

Toastface Grillah

Reviewed By gawjusfings - Greater Perth, Australia

143 Barrack Street, Grand Lane.
Open M-F 0700-1600. S 0900-1600. S 1000-1500.
What you are looking for is the graffiti alleyway, where local employees hang out to smoke in their breaks, just off Wellington Street.
It’s a tiny but welcoming space, with a seated garden to wait for your order, which is quick to arrive in a take out box.
You can eat in, patrons come and go, so Seating is constantly revolving.
I chose to return to where my parked car several blocks away, under a gorgeous flowering frangipani tree. By this time the toastie was perfect eating temperature.
I chose a BAG, bacon, apple and gouda cheese. A cold pressed juice, lemon, apple and ginger, was welcome on this hot day. All up $14.00.
The bread thick, herbed and toasted to perfection, looked overdone but no, this is what they specialise in, it was perfection.
Bacon tasty, apple still a little crunchie and cheese plentiful, all in all, couldn’t fault a thing.
There were several Mothers, children and toddlers there all scoffing down happily, affording them enough time to get a jolly good old chin wag in. Workers from the area, some regulars being greeted by name.
Highly recommend.
