10 of the Best Places to Eat in Perth

10 of the Best Places to Eat in Perth main image

Planning on visiting the sunshine city of Perth? Well, when it comes to dining and drinking, it’s easy to get caught up in the most touristy spots on the main strip and miss all the delicious local spots hidden away from the hustle and bustle. Luckily, I’ve got the inside scoop on the best spots to grab a bite in and around this laid-back city.

1. Little Creatures Brewery

You simply cannot visit Perth without taking a trip to Fremantle in the outskirts of the city, where you will find one of Western Australia’s best microbreweries. The building actually used to be a crocodile farm (c’mon, you can’t get more Aussie than that), but today is home to one of the top-rated beer gardens in Australia, with some pretty epic cider and beer options.  Food wise, take your pick from tasty woodfired pizza, meat dishes, seafood and veggie options.

2. Mary St Bakery

If you’re in the mood for a fresh baked goodie or fabulous brunch spread, head over to Mary St Bakery for one of their many mouth-watering dishes. One of their most famous options is a combination of fried chicken and maple eggs…strange, yet delicious!

3. Little Caesars Pizzeria

No, this isn’t the chain pizza place you’re thinking of. Little Caesars Pizzeria in Leederville is the perfect spot to get some ‘za’, with so many different options including pasta covered pizza and dessert pizza for those with a sweet tooth. This definitely isn’t a conventional pizza place, with all of the pizzas having particularly weird and wonderful names. It’s also a great option for those looking for places to eat in Perth which won’t break the bank.

4. Miss Maud Smorgasbord Restaurant

Miss Maud’s has been named one of the best places to eat in Perth by many locals and tourists alike. They offer something for everyone, with a selection of hot and cold dishes and a ton of delicious dessert options. They also frequently have live music in the evenings, adding to the enjoyment of your evening.

5. El Publico

If you’re in the mood for a taco (or six), head over to El Publico, a cozy joint in the Highgate area, for some authentic Mexican cuisine. While it’s a bit on the pricey side, you can’t beat the quality and freshness of the food and the friendly staff.

6. Alfred’s Kitchen

This burger joint is a hidden gem outside the Central Business District (CBD), and is the longest running roadside burger kitchen in Perth. The place has been serving up fresh burgers and sandwiches since 1946, and has been a go-to spot for late night snacks ever since. You might be waiting up to an hour for a burger some nights, since the place is always jam packed, but I promise you it’s worth it.

7. Greens & Co

If you’re looking for a chilled out late night spot away from the bustling nightclubs, look no further than Greens & Co. Serving up the best decadent desserts, coffee, or a cold beverage alongside the pool tables and board games available for use. What more could you ask for on a Friday night?

8. The Aviary

An iconic rooftop spot in Perth, The Aviary is the perfect spot to grab a drink and a bite to eat after a day of exploring the city. Because of its convenient location in the CBD, you will be welcomed with stellar skyline views along with a cocktail list that’ll have you staying all afternoon.

9. Il Lido

Il Lido is the perfect spot to grab some fresh Italian cuisine after a day at the beach. Its location directly beside the famous Cottesloe Beach makes it the perfect spot to refresh after a swim in the ocean, with a few (or many) refreshing drinks on the menu to quench your thirst.

10. The Guildford Hotel

Last but not least in my tour of great places to eat in Perth, The Guildford Hotel is a historical building which has been turned into a local pub and offers some of the best casual dining in the city - or simply a pint with friends. Whether you fancy sitting inside under the beautiful arches or outside in the picturesque beer garden, you can’t go wrong spending an afternoon here.
