Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about clichéd heart-shaped chocolate boxes and long-stemmed roses. Here are five restaurants in Perth for a truly unique, intimate and cosy Valentine’s celebration.
We’ll begin with a dab of fine Australian dining. Wildflower is a very classy restaurant indeed, set in a refined rooftop space and offering a memorable foodie experience. It’s found on the fourth floor of The Treasury Hotel, and uses nothing but the best in local, seasonal produce to craft its delectable fare. Great meals, sweeping views and perfect company. What more could you want?
Cool, casual and supremely fashionable, Must Winebar balances tasteful elegance with a laid-back, welcoming attitude. The cosy atmosphere and romantic lighting make it great for couples without being too stuffy, and the French-style bistro food is simply delicious. Naturally, the wine list isn’t too shabby either, so this is definitely one for those seeking a classic dinner date with all the right trimmings.
“Must Wine bar is a known quality in the Perth dining scene. The food is comforting, familiar but also exciting – you just need to be careful not to eat too much. The service is what it should be – proper.” – jamie04
Revolution, not evolution is the order of the day at C Restaurant. Perth’s only revolving eatery is just as spectacular as ever, boasting magnificent views and even better food. It’s going all out for Valentine’s Day this year, offering multi-course lunch, dinner and high tea specials for an utterly delicious day. Settle in, sit back, and let head chef Frantisek Ilizi take your taste buds to heaven.
“Amazing wine service! We were the last to leave and were not rushed at all. Atmosphere was great and the food was perfect. Crocodile for starter is highly recommended. We loved it so much we booked again a couple of months later for my parents anniversary… Again the food was perfect, compliments to the chef.” – Kevin Craig
Italian restaurants and Valentine’s Day go together like pie and sauce, so it’s only natural we stick at least one on this list. And what a one it is! Il Lido serves up fresh, authentic goodness in a beautifully rustic setting, where wine racks line the walls and candles adorn every table. It’s open from 7am ‘til late every day, but get there just as the sun sets over the adjacent beach for maximum romance.
“The food here is some of the best you will eat around the suburbs! The homemade pasta is unbeatable and their wine list has carefully been put together to compliment every meal! Outdoor dining is beautiful in the summer- looking over Cottesloe beach as the sun sets is beautiful! The staff are all so passionate about their work and are all experts when it comes to the food and wine menu!” – YUMYUMINTUMTUM
St Michael is a unique mixture of food and fine art, where the ever-changing wall paintings invite a snazzy sense of flair to accompany the cuisine. This trendy venue offers tons of small sharing plates, covering everything from roasted lamb shoulder to fried squid bocodillos. The wine list is extensive and awesome, and we’d highly recommend the seven-course tasting menu for something truly memorable.
