Perth's Best Restaurants
From delightful degustations to intimate wine bars. here's a list of the must-visits for the discerning Perth dinner.
A visit to Restaurant Amusé is guaranteed to impress. Turning up to Chef Hadleigh Troy’s East Perth restaurant feels like arriving at someone’s house – probably because it did in fact double as home for he and his wife for some time! Once you enter, the comfortable and cosy vibe remains, but you will be whisked away to a corner where you can enjoy plate after plate after plate of exceptional, modern Australian cuisine.
Degustation is the go here, and the menu changes depending on what is in season and which ingredients Hadleigh is inspired by. The kitchen will happily cater for allergies; just let them know your requirements beforehand.
64 Bronte St, East Perth
In the heart of the Perth CBD lies Lalla Rookh. As you wander down St George’s Terrace, keep an eye out for a set of stairs that lead you to this fabulous restaurant and bar. It’s easy to please both adventurous foodies and fussy eaters at this joint – with inspired flavor combinations next to dressed up pub fare on the menu.
Bookings are encouraged as the restaurant packs out, particularly on the weekends. But if you need to wait for a table, the bar area is vast and well stocked. After dinner, exit through their wine shop and grab a bottle to take with you.

Favoured amongst Perth locals as the ultimate anniversary or date night destination, Nobu never fails to deliver. Despite there being over 30 Nobu restaurants throughout the world, the attention to detail in the kitchen and front of house is superb at each of the venues, Perth being no exception.
If pressed for time, get a seat at the bar where you can enjoy cocktails and appetizers before seeing a show nearby.

Print Hall is found in the beautifully restored Newspaper House in the Perth CBD, where the building alone is enough to warrant a visit.

Everything is done well here, but for exceptional dinnertime fare then book into the main Print Hall dining room. Expect modern, European cuisine that showcases fresh, Western Australian produce.
