The Best Restaurants in Leederville

Updated 5 months ago


Leederville’s tight-knit village-y feel means that many of the area’s best restaurants are just a short walk from one another. But though there isn’t much distance separating them, the diversity of cuisines and experiences is noteworthy. Southeast Asian flavours shine at Will Street, a smart diner hiding away from the Oxford Street strip, while Pinchos offers a taste of the Iberian Peninsula. And more recent additions such as Servo and Naber guarantee good times with your crew over share plates and fun wines. Whether you’re after tapas, izakaya classics or one of Perth’s best burgers, there’s a spot here for you, curated by Broadsheet’s expert food and drink editors.

  • A breezy all-day diner at the redeveloped Leederville Hotel. Fuel up on grilled shish-style skewers, cuisine-crossing share plates, and wines from a free-wheeling list of fun and approachable drops.

  • Chef Will Meyrick’s Leederville restaurant is all about the bold flavours of Southeast Asia, with a focus on Thai cuisine. It also slings spice-friendly wines and cocktails, plus a signature rice lager and gin by Fremantle brewery, Running with Thieves.

  • A fire-fuelled restaurant going back to basics.

  • Take your pick from two separate venues: the moody intimate bar or the breezy all-day courtyard. Each has a different menu. But whichever you choose, you’re sure to find inventive cocktails (think a Mojito made with green ants), excellent food, and local beer and wine.

  • Here, the East embraces the West with exceptional results.

  • Accomplished tapas on the Leederville main drag.

  • A hip-hop-themed fried-chicken joint.

  • An all-day tapas and wine bar, that's all about dropping in for jamon and a glass of sherry.

  • It started the gourmet burger invasion, and it’s still leading the charge.

  • Try gloriously stacked double-beef burgers and Philly cheesesteaks at this Leederville diner. Bad Love Burger Co is the bricks-and-mortar residence of pop-up eatery Smashburger BBQ.
