Waterfront restaurants usually have a reputation for prioritising good views over edible food. Luckily, Perth’s brilliant beachside dining scene is an exception.

With a seemingly endless stretch of golden sand separating the West Australian capital from the Indian Ocean, Perth boasts plenty of prime real estate for waterfront dining. From Western Australia’s freshest fish and chips to modern Australian restaurants with ocean views to die for, check out the eight best beachfront eateries that Perth has to offer.

Bib and Tucker

Bib and Tucker drinks and nibbles

This modern Australian eatery showcases the best of Western Australia — both in the produce on the plate, as well as the breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean. Perched right on Fremantle’s Leighton Beach, Bib and Tucker’s menu utilises the freshest seasonal ingredients from its local Perth-based suppliers, preparing its contemporary menu with a blend of modern and ancient cooking techniques like smoking, pickling and wood-firing.

Little Creatures

Little Creatures beer tasting

Another Fremantle favourite, this waterfront craft brewery churns out more than just great beer. Little Creatures dishes up all your favourite pub grub — the brewery’s specialties are a long list of gourmet wood-fired pizzas as well as an array of share plates, best enjoyed with a pint of their amber nectar and uninterrupted vistas over the sun-drenched harbour.

Odyssea Beach Cafe


Sitting on the sand of City Beach just behind the City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club, Odyssea attracts all kinds of beachgoers looking for a coffee after a swim, a glass of wine on the al fresco deck or an upmarket meal overlooking the water. The menu emphasises local West Australian fare — many of the mains highlight mouth-watering WA seafood, which pairs nicely with the extensive wine list sourced from regional producers.

The Hamptons

The Hamptons

Located just next door to Odyssea with waves practically lapping up on the front door, the Hamptons is another stylish City Beach restaurant that’s created an upscale menu out of fresh, sustainable, West Australian ingredients. Suiting its superb waterfront location, the range of fish and chip options — including blue spot emperor, char-grilled tuna and crispy, fried whiting — is the standout.

Bathers Beach House

Bathers Beach House

Restaurants don’t get any closer to the water than this Fremantle establishment, the first licensed beachfront bar in Australia given the green light to serve cocktails and nibbles to punters with their toes in the sand. Snag a sun lounger and feast on a shared plate or generous ‘bathers board’ washed down with a WA wine or craft beer, or reserve a table inside to savour the Bathers Beach House’s lofty vantage point over the Indian Ocean.

The Shorehouse

The Shorehouse

Swanbourne Beach is best known for its clothing-optional stretch of sand and this cosy eatery is equally as casual. Well, you’ll have to slip into a pair of boardshorts or a bikini before they give you a table, but properly clothed patrons can look forward to a sophisticated range of dishes to graze on beneath the Shorehouse’s yellow-and-white striped parasols where a Mediterranean-inspired menu complements the sunny coastal vibes.

The Kiosk Floreat Beach

Don’t let the name fool you — the Kiosk is more than your average beach shack. Serving a succulent selection of burgers, beach snacks and bistro classics, this Floreat Beach favourite gives diners the choice to eat in or takeaway, which is perfect if you’re planning a picnic on the beach while you watch the sun sink into the Indian Ocean. The Kiosk also boasts a second location on the banks of the Swan River in the heart of East Fremantle.

Indiana Cottesloe Beach

Indiana is a Perth institution, occupying the iconic tea house towering over the lily-white sand of Cottesloe Beach. These days a modern bistro boasting water views from every table, Indiana Cottesloe Beach serves a seafood-heavy shared-plate menu from its peerless beachfront location on WA’s most famous stretch of sand.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
