Make no mistake, there are some terrific wine lists in this city, but it can be just as special to tuck a bottle under your arm and hit a local favourite that offers BYO. Perth has no shortage of BYO eateries, running the gamut of cuisine from Southeast Asian to Mediterranean. Here are some of the very best spots where you can bring your own, whether you’re in the mood for wine, beer or even cider.

Restaurant Jun
Tucked away down a flight of stairs in a laneway off Hay Street, Restaurant Jun is an unassuming oasis of traditional Japanese dining. The sparse, intimate space provides a serene backdrop for grilled skewers (including many varieties of chicken and beef), fresh sashimi, noodle soups, Japanese curries, and fried veggies and seafood, all served with streamlined elegance. Also look out for salted mackerel imported from Japan and shucked-to-order oysters, each available at certain times only. And you can complement your meal with your own bottle of vino – maybe try a blanc de blancs to balance out those rich umami flavours.

Viet Hoa
Homespun Vietnamese cuisine is in high demand at Viet Hoa, a four-decade-old family-owned fixture of Northbridge. Pho and other warming soups are well represented, while the noodles are all made in-house. Also be sure to dip into the deep selection of seafood options, including a creamy laksa. Wider banquet options showcase a hearty cross-section of the menu, from mixed seafood claypots to braised lamb with lemongrass and chilli. And with no corkage charge, feel free to bring along a bottle of wine (or six-pack of craft beer) to share with your table.

Lady of Ro
Named after Greek patriot Despina Achladiotou, this open, airy eatery is a Subiaco favourite. Chargrilled share plates hero local produce, whether it’s juicy octopus, pillowy scallops or succulent meatballs. The desserts come courtesy of Despina Tanner, who owns Lady of Ro with her husband, chef Brian Tanner. Her traditional Greek cakes are deservedly popular – try the souffra, a custard cake with pistachio. Despina’s father and other family members have also owned businesses on Rokeby Road, and her architect son designed the fit-out for Lady of Ro. BYO your favourite bottle of light red or flinty white for a meal that harks back to the casual, shareable dining of Greece.

Known for its inventive toppings, this Maylands pizzeria is the brainchild of Nat Atkins and Fil Pakioufakis (Neighbourhood Pizza). The bright, open space is just as unobtrusive as the famously light crusts, which are designed to give that much more of the limelight to those toppings. Depending on the season, they range from chicken cacciatore to ’nduja (a spicy pork spread) to hot sopressa. And it’s not all meat: plant-based options centre seasonal veggies such as roasted eggplant or brussels sprouts. For just $2 per person, you can BYO beer, wine or cider, adding to the comfy casualness on full display at Rossonero.

Short Order Burger Co
From its retro branding to its stacked old-school burgers, Short Order Burger Co is a total blast from the past. Started in Fremantle in the mid-2010s before opening a second spot on Hay Street, this bright and bubbly joint serves up juicy burgers with no fuss or pretension. You can opt for just a simple cheeseburger with ketchup and mustard, or reach for a bacon-and-BBQ-sauce option and even a couple of spice-kicked chicken burgers. You can even get them all doubled on request. There’s a plant-based patty courtesy of V2, while buffalo wings and kids’ meals round out the wholesome American vibe. The Fremantle location is licensed (cue the cocktails), but the Perth outlet is BYO, so make sure to grab some thirst-quenching beers, wine or cider on the way there.
