Arimia is an organically certified, off-grid farm, best described as a farm with a restaurant rather than the other way around.

Chef Evan Hayter puts sustainability front and centre, creating dishes that simply taste like the incredible South West. Open12pm to 2.30pm, Thurs to Sun.

Frui Momento


A small menu usually means the food is cooked excellently, and Frui Momento is a testament to this. Chef Seth James joins forces with winemaking legend Larry Cherubino to create an intimate dining experience showcasing the best of Margaret River. With just three main courses to choose from and a combination of flavours born from James' travels in Asia, Frui Momento is essential to your down-south trip. Open from 12pm to 5pm, Thurs to Sun.

South Fremantle

Subverting the 'fishing-net and buoy' expectations of a typical seafood restaurant, Madalenas is an indoor plant filled space showcasing fresh, sustainable seafood. With the option to share a six-course 'feed me' menu or to pick from seasonal dishes and the catch of the day, Madalenas is a must-visit for seafood lovers.

This cellar-door restaurant in the Perth Hills is one of WA’s finest places for lunch. Millbrook strays away from out-there combinations and instead the kitchen specialises in cooking delicious fruit and vegetables cast in comforting, largely European-style dishes. Known for their wine, Millbrook is not to be overlooked on your next Perth Hills day trip.

Si Paradiso


Si Paradiso has a well-regarded reputation for being one of Perth's favourite pizzerias. The lively atmosphere and DJs in the amphitheatre at the back lends itself to a club atmosphere, but the food makes this spot a hidden gem. Alongside pizza, you'll find the ever-popular calamari, and comforting tagliatelle bolognaise. Open from Wednesday to Sunday.

The Corner Dairy


This lively neighbourhood hangout in Doubleview is home to one of Perth's most polished food bars. Sitting on the corner of Woodside Street and Scarborough Beach Road, The Corner Dairy errs more on the casual side of dining experiences - but that doesn’t mean the food or service is any less. If you've got a sweet tooth, their Filipino leche flan topped with a whisky and orange caramel is a definite winner. Open Wed to Thurs 4pm to late, Fri to Sun 12pm to late.

Chef Brendan Pratt takes a classical approach to cooking, whilst incorporating contemporary ideas to create a menu that pairs with Vasse Felix's wines. The restaurant has received praise from Gourmet Traveller, the Good Food Guide and more, and will be a fantastic addition to a Margaret River adventure. Open daily from 12pm to 3pm - bookings recommended.
