Restaurants in Perth

Boasting more restaurants per capita than any other Australian city, Perth's multi-cultural make-up lends itself to a varied cuisine and many styles of eateries.

The best place to find a variety of restaurants is in the Perth CBD, where a selection of funky cafes, pubs and intimate, world-class restaurants await, ready to tantalise the taste buds. Northbridge's cultural hub boasts some more exotic options where everything from spicy Moroccan fare to the gentle flavours of Mediterranean cuisine can be found. For great seafood check out the coastal eateries between Fremantle and Cottesloe, where fresh fish, plump prawns and breathtaking views over the ocean will sing to all senses.

Tips are not expected in restaurants in Perth, although it is becoming more common in expensive restaurants in the bigger cities to leave some money for good service.
