European cuisine

Perth has a wide range of European restaurants to choose from: whether it is Spanish Paella full of beans and prawns that someone is hankering for or a French Coq Au Vin steeped in the finest red wine, nowhere in the city is lacking in European food.

The old English favourite fish and chips is a staple in Perth and the famous Australian pasties originated from England as well.

Steak and ribs in Perth

Perth is well-known for the quality beef that it serves. The steak served in this town is some of the finest in the world.

Why not try some delicious ribs in Perth? Smoked to perfection and dipped in barbecue sauce, ribs are great for keeping the hunger wolves from the door. Just be prepared for some messy fingers! Tony Roma’s steak house in Perth serves prime beef. The meat practically melts like butter when it is cut.

Fish and seafood

With rich ocean and river life on its doorstep, Perth serves up the catch of the day for fish and seafood lovers.

There is nothing quite like the freshness of a pan-seared barracuda, served on a bed of potatoes with salad dressing, or shrimp which are fresh out of the ocean and have been drizzled with tangy lemon juice and spicy black pepper.

World Food

Australia is home to a wide range of cultures and people from many different nations. Perth is no exception, so it couldn’t be easier to snack on authentic Indian samosas or devour a delicious Greek halloumi cheese salad here.

There is a whole culinary world just waiting to be discovered.


Whether its meat, fish or vegetables that are filling your plate, the perfect accompaniment is a glass of Australian wine. Western Australia is home to nine different wine growing regions, including Margaret River and Swan Valley.
