Perth was named the ninth best city in the world to visit in 2014 by the New York Times, largely for its growing culinary scene and hip, trendy establishments. This Western Australia city has always boasted gorgeous beaches to explore by day, and now it also offers a plethora of nightlife and dining options for after hours. After you explore hotels in Perth, you should set your sights on one of these top-notch restaurants:
This Perth bar and restaurant gets a lot of its trend cred from having once been a stable. You'd never suspect such bucolic roots from its current appearance, though - the entire establishment has been done up with sophisticated details and beautiful decor.
With a great wine list and plenty of media acclaim, Restaurant Amusé makes must-try lists year after year. It has been awarded restaurant of the year by quite a few sources, and has been given two stars by the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide every year since 2010.
Situated in Perth's old Newspaper House, Print Hall isn't just a restaurant - it calls itself a food and wine precinct. The multi-level establishment is housed in, as you might've guessed, a historic old print house. Each level of Print Hall is representative of the floor's uses in years past, making for a drinking and dining experience that's a bit like storytelling.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has arrived in Perth. Though not a flagship location, this restaurant is buzzworthy simply for being the brainchild of Mr Oliver himself. Serving up classic Italian favourites, Jamie's Italian is a great family-friendly choice for those seeking a noteworthy yet semi-casual environment.
A French restaurant with upscale appeal, Opus Restaurant offers a formal environment and a sophisticated menu. The restaurant's executive chef uses local produce to craft his intricate dishes, making for a fresh and flavourful experience.
