Although the Perth Hills is only about 30 minutes from the city, indulging in lunch at a cafe, winery, pub, or award-winning restaurant is akin to a mini-break.

That is unless you're lucky enough to enjoy a rural staycation at one of the bed and breakfasts, cottages or decadent adults-only retreats that dot the landscape, where it's easy to imagine you've travelled down south to the Margaret River Region or another swoon-worthy getaways in our beautiful state.

You'll have even more of the best restaurants in Perth Hills to add to your bucket list after checking out our selection below.

So what are you waiting for? Book in your next weekend lunch or dinner, pronto!

Jack & Jill Kitchen

Jack & Jill Kitchen

This Kalamunda cafe is perfect for your next visit to the Perth Hills. Jack & Jill Kitchen is relaxed, charming and bursting with housemade treats and brunch dishes you'll fall head over heels for. Loads of seating means that you can settle in as a big group, or fly solo with a good book and plenty of rounds of expertly brewed coffee. The service is excellent and thoughtful - there's no rushing involved at this cafe in Perth Hills. 

18 Haynes Street, Kalamunda

The Packing Shed

The Packing Shed at Lawnbrook

The Bickley Valley is painfully beautiful, with a colour palette evolving with the seasons, painting the landscape in vibrant bursts. This idyllic setting is home to The Packing Shed at Lawnbrook, a boutique winery famed for its pinot noir, chardonnay and semillon. While their wines are the region's big-hitters, they also play host to a menu that reflects the seasons.  Wholesome, heartwarming options can be savoured by the fire during the cooler months, while summer attracts picnic goers over platters and live music. We were excited to discover they have branched out into gins and liqueurs too, making this pretty venue even more worthy of the scenic drive into the Perth Hills.

La Fattoria

La Fattoria

When European immigrants landed on WA's shores in the 1950s, many headed for the hills to carve out a brighter future for their families. The Pickering Valley is one such region with a micro-climate favoured for its rich soil, and many of those abundant orchards you see today were cultivated by WA's hardworking Italian community. So it's not entirely surprising to discover La Fattoria hosts Nonna's Family Table, a set menu designed for large and lingering gatherings. Less formal platters are to be nibbled on in the grounds, where diners choose a selection of antipasto options savoured over La Fattoria's Italian wines. It's one of the most hearty and wholesome Perth Hills restaurants to spend a bunch of time in.

Naked Apple Cider House

Naked Apple Cider House

Set in one of the most magical settings in the Perth Hills, there's little wonder why the Naked Apple Cider House is a popular wedding venue. Even if romance isn't on your mind, all the other bases for a brilliant day out are covered – cider, an all-day menu, picturesque scenery and a playground. Take your pick of where to indulge, either in the restaurant, on the deck or sprawled out on the lawn, and keep an out for their family-friendly and culinary events.

Taco Maria

Taco Maria

Discovering a taqueria in Kalamunda village is an unexpected treat, especially one bathed in vibrant Mexican flavour and design. Begin with happy hour from 5-6pm and proceed into all the classics like three-cheese quesadillas, crispy pork belly tacos and 16-hour chipotle cacao beef. Keep the margaritas and tequilas rolling into dessert, as you shouldn't bother trying to resist this best restaurant in Perth Hill's Aztec dark chocolate brownies and churros. Although Taco Maria isn't open for lunch, after spending the day in the hills, this is the perfect spot for an early dinner; reality can wait.

18 Mead Street, Kalamunda

Malmalling Vineyard

Malmalling Vineyard

Apart from the neighbouring locals who delight in leisurely strolls home after lengthy sessions at Malmalling Vineyard, this picturesque winery and Perth Hills restaurant has somehow managed to fly under the radar. Their elegant verdelho, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon labels are perfectly paired with a French-inspired menu, plus grazing platters, live music and regular kangaroo sightings. Here's another local tip: a mini-trek through the adjacent John Forrest National Park easily justifies indulging in dessert.

3025 Beacon Road, Parkerville

Mundaring Weir Hotel

Mundaring Weir Hotel

There are few things as comforting as hearty pub grub and the Mundaring Weir Hotel is practically an institution. Boasting sizeable counter meals and one of the largest beer gardens in Perth, check out their year-round calendar of events. Make a weekend of it too, with a stay in one of their cosy rooms and a visit to Mundaring Weir for iconic views over the dam. Walk off the hearty pub-fare with a hike along one of the nearby tracks, including the Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie Pipeline and the Bibbulmun Track, which weaves appealingly past the hotel.

2672 Toodyay Road, Gidgegannup

Millbrook Winery

Millbrook Winery

Repeatedly acclaimed for its no-waste and sustainable ethos, Millbrook Winery's executive chef Guy Jeffrey's onsite kitchen garden inspires many of his dishes. With over 100 varieties of heirloom vegetables, abundance is in sync with the seasons. Millbrook is one of the few restaurants in the region to open on Mondays with its three-course 'No Waste Monday' at $40, or $50 with paired wines. It's incredible value for the calibre of dishes. Even the cellar door opens on Mondays, but if you visit on Sunday afternoons, you'll be treated to some unique pours accompanied by a tasty grazing platter. Recently lauded as WA's Restaurant of the Year 2022 by Gourmet Traveller, this truly is an unmissable Perth Hills restaurant to have on your radar. 

Old Chestnut Lane, Jarrahdale

Seven Sins

Seven Sins

With sprawling valley views competing for your attention alongside the plentiful menu, you need to add Seven Sins to your Perth Hills restaurant list. While there are plenty of sharing dishes like the sashimi salmon ceviche and oysters, you might be unwilling to split the WA crayfish, tomahawk steaks and crispy crackle pork knuckle – even if sharing is caring!

There's certainly no shortage of local wines to choose from, or ciders from the nearby Roleystone Brewing Company down the road (also worth a visit). Add in a wander through the nearby Araluen Botanic Park, and you have the makings of a wonderful day out in the Perth Hills.

3/1 Soldiers Road, Roleystone



This classic dining spot up in the hills is a must for families and large groups of friends after a fun day of hiking and exploring the region. Embers does it all. It's predominantly Italian, offering wholesome and locally-sourced dishes that run the gamut from pizzas, pastas and salads to seafood, steaks and burgers. Other highlights might include a tasty paella, fish tacos, spicy cauliflower popcorn, and Asian-style dishes like ginger and garlic pan-fried snapper and caramelised beef short rib, with basmati rice, sesame bok choy, and a mint and apple slaw. The options are varied, making it easy for everyone to find something they'll love. 

The lively atmosphere will also have you feeling like you've come to the right place - and for that alone it's one of the best restaurants in Perth Hills to gather for your next lunch or dinner. 

169 Railway Road, Gooseberry Hill
