So without further ado, here’s your top 10 dining experiences in Perth:

Neil Perry’s gastronomic wonderland, Rockpool is a national dining institution and a renowned restaurant on the global stage. From the theatre of the gilded room to basking in the attention of the professional floor team, dining at Rockpool Bar & Grill is an experience to be savoured.

3) Friends Restaurant

20 Terrace Rd, Perth WA 6000

The first thing that strikes you when you walk into Friends Restaurant is the spectacular outlook over the Swan River – but this is just the start. The menu is contemporary and will impress any serious foodie, while the decor is reminiscent of a bygone era when silver service and decadence were the norm.

4) Sentinel Bar & Grill

111 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000

sentinelbar.com.au

Paying homage to the style of New York and the intrinsic food culture of Europe, Sentinel Bar & Grill is a sophisticated restaurant and bar, encompassing breakfast, lunch, dinner, all day dining. The atmosphere is one of warm sophistication and whoever you bring here will be super impressed.

5) Opus Restaurant

32 Richardson St, West Perth WA 6005

opusrestaurant.com.au

A symphony of flavour is on at Opus – every night. The richly decorated dining space is super luxurious – think thick deep red carpets, low lighting  and a seriously fancy French inspired menu. The West Australian scallops with chorizo foam, watermelon pineapple yuzu salad, mango and lime is one of our faves!

6) Modo Mio

Great Eastern Hwy, Burswood WA 6100

crownperth.com.au/restaurants/premium/modo-mio

If you’re sick of boring old pizza and pasta treat yourself to an Italian feast at Modo Mio where everything is five star. The service is on point, the menu is extensive and delicious and the decor is lush and worthy of a fine dining label.

7) Heirloom

10 Adelaide Terrace, East Perth WA 6004

heirloomperth.com.au

With a menu crafted by celeb chef Pete Evans it’s no surprise that Heirloom has made it on our top ‘fine dining’ list. If you need a celebration spot then this is for you – and it’s great for those looking to splash out in a healthy way as the menu retains some of Evans’ paleo influence.

8) 1907 Restaurant

26 Queen St, Perth WA 6000

1907.com.au

The concept of paddock to plate dining has never been more true than at 1907 Restaurant. The restaurant is decked out in finery, retaining an old Hollywood essence that is indulgent and somewhat seductive. And food? You can enjoy an incredible 9 course or 11 course degustation feast – now that’s fine dining.

9) Marumo

22/145 Stirling Hwy, Nedlands WA 6907

marumo.com.au

BLINK and you’ll miss Marumo. Even if you’re looking for it, this shoebox of a restaurant is tough to spot among Chelsea Village’s jumble of shops.

It’s a modest, low-frill set-up, certainly, but pennies saved on look and labour allow chef Moe Oo to continue serving Perth’s biggest dining bargain: seven courses of deft Japanese cooking (in reality, nine courses once you include the appetiser and sorbet) for just $55.

It’s a Japanese dining style called omakase — leaving the menu to the chef. And you confidently can, so long as you can snag a seat.

Bookings are only released once a month online — and they go fast. If you’re not already clutching a reservation, Golden Ticket-style, the soonest you’ll be able to dine is 2-3 months from the time you try and book, and that’s assuming you try and book at a quiet time.

This sort of rigmarole isn’t everyone’s cup of green tea, but for those up for running the bookings gauntlet, your determination won’t go unrewarded.

10) Petite Mort

225 Onslow Rd, Shenton Park WA 6008

petitemort.com.au

Nestled away in the quiet suburb of Shenton Park lies one of Perth’s culinary gems – a romantic restaurant providing some of the most incredible French food around.

Despite being regarded as one of Perth’s finer restaurants, Petite Mort isn’t the intimidating dining experience that often accompanies five-star venues. Risqué yet classy art adorns the red brick walls, and a polished dark wooden floor creates an environment that screams opulence and intimacy at the same time. The staff are attentive and friendly, while head sommelier Martin is a walking wine encyclopaedia, knowing exactly which wines bring out the best in each dish.

It is a beautiful, intimate venue that oozes class and sophistication, and will leave a lasting impression on you and your partner, regardless of whether you’re on a first date or having a corporate lunch with a client. Just make sure you go on pay day – as a trip to Petite Mort doesn’t come cheap.
