Treat yourself to Perth’s best dining experiences.
When it comes to dining, sometimes we can’t help but want the best of the very best for a special occasion (or you know, to just YOLO and treat yourself).
And we’re super lucky because we have quite a list here of fine dining spots: all of which are exquisite, impressive and worthy of visiting.
Now all you need to do is pick the right person or persons worthy of such delights to accompany you to one of Perth’s top restaurants.
Situated at the base of an original art deco apartment block in Perth City, Balthazar looks unassuming from the outside. But step in and you’ll find an intimate, dimly lit and thoughtful location that you’ll love experiencing.
The menu is clever and thoughtful and most importantly, delicious! From a deceivingly simple saffron and goats cheese ravioli that will blow your tastebuds away, to tried and true favourites like beef tartare.
Sink into your chair and go on a culinary journey with your dining companion.
Perched atop of the State Building’s COMO The Treasury Hotel, Wildflower is considered one of Australia’s best dining locations and with good reason.
The contemporary menu is elating in itself, not to mention the indigenous ethos it revolves around, respecting the six seasons. Head Chef Matthew Sartori joined in 2015 and his team have carefully constructed some amazing dishes, with native ingredients playing a vital role woven throughout the menu.
Opulence combined with the power of open fire and smoke is part of what feeds the flames of the Ritz-Carlton’s Hearth restaurant in Elizabeth Quay.
It’s a venue dedicated to celebrating local Western Australian flavours, with Executive Chef Jed Gerrard leading the charge. Every dish here utilises new and old-world cooking techniques, as well as respecting seasonality, produce and local traditions.
With the river sparkling right at your fingertips, you’ll feel like you’re under a spell when you visit here.
Located in Perth’s The Royal Hotel, Fleur is an eclectic, always impressive and breathtaking diner.
It’s indulgent in all the right ways with Chefs Chase Weber and Shane Middleton creating dishes that showcase local produce plated with intricate minimalism. Dishes like their unagi cream with toasted nori, brook trout roe and togarashi set the tone and style of what to expect on a visit here, and it only gets better and better.
And for those so inclined, Fleur also has its own caviar menu, just for that added touch of fanciful frivolity.
Andly Private Kitchen
Shhh we have a secret and now you’re in the know too!
Andly Private Kitchen isn’t your normal fine dining location, but it’s something so much more impressive. Bookings in advance are an absolute must to enjoy an evening at this West Leederville spot with their six-course Chinese menu.
The food changes each night, and menus start at $100 per head, going up in $50 increments – with the ingredients adjusted to suit the level you want to spend (think Patagonian toothfish, wagyu beef, foie gras and more).
It’s honestly a beautiful affair.
Madalena’s Wine and Seafood Bar
South Fremantle’s Madalena’s Wine and Seafood Bar is humble in appearance, but homely and familiar in all the right ways.
But it’s so much more than that.
Peel back the beautiful aesthetics and you’ll see a menu that is designed to elevate the incredible fresh, sustainable seafood that adorns the pages. The team here have forged strong relationships with their suppliers and local farmers, which shows in the way they approach food and wine, and produce some utterly epic pescatarian and vegetarian plates.
Clarke’s of North Beach
The fusion of modern Australian food with a fine dining experience is what Clarke’s of North Beach embodies through and through.
Since opening in 2003, owner and Chef Stephen Clarke and his team have continued to show why this is one of Perth’s premier dinner destinations, and the two star restaurant continues to win awards and accolades.
The seven-course degustation is a true event, and showcases technique and flavour in every morsel.
Shadow Wine Bar
Step off the busy William Street in Northbridge and escape into the opulent setting of the Alex Hotel’s Shadow Wine Bar.
The beverage list is timeless in its approach with excellent wines and cocktails adorning the menu – and the food is equally impressive. The fare is broken down into six sections: snacks, entrees/small shares, pasta, mains/larger shares, sides and desserts.
While you might be tempted to do the traditional entrée, main, dessert; take our advice and don’t skip the snacks – there are some truly heavy hitters in there that will have your palate singing.
Offering contemporary Italian and European food that uses the best of Western Australian produce is what makes the State Buildings Post one of Perth’s best restaurants.
This gorgeous osteria serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to people who are enjoying a stay at COMO The Treasury, or just making a special outing for some delicious food.
The degustation is a memorable affair, and really highlights the talented Executive Chef Kim Brennan and the team’s approach to dining.
Lamont’s Bishops House
Lamont’s Bishops House is a stunning heritage-listed home that was built in the 1850’s and has been operating as a fine dining destination for the past decade.
The location includes beautiful private gardens, while being in the heart of Perth city, which means it’s ultra-accessible.
Executive Chef Nathan Le continues to bring a unique approach to using fresh and local ingredients with new and traditional cooking techniques.
From their private dining rooms, cocktails under the stars, watching the sunset from your balcony dining spot or dinner in the gardens, this place really does have such charm to it.
