What restaurants/cafe do you return to time after time?
What do you love about it?
What kind of food is it?
Where is it?

I'm struggling to find places that I'd happily return to.
Happy to try anything.

Cafes - all in the Highgate, North Perth area
Lincolns
Tarts
Hobart Street Deli
These three are all small with homemade food and good coffee
Beaufort street merchant - awesome breakfast

In other parts of Perth I like the Cimbolina cafes, delicious pastries, consistently good coffee

Restaurants
LOVE the Grilled burgers
Must Wine Bar - best meal I had in Perth but v expensive, on Beaufort St
Little Creatures I thought had v good food and v fast so good with kids.

Anyone tried Chutney Mary's in Subi - oh the chicken korma is THE BEST!

I don't mind Sienna's either in Leederville or Highgate.

I really like Sandrino's in Fremantle. I have eaten there a few times and the food is always perfect and the service is great.

Hanami on Beaufort St, Mount Lawley is great for Japanese.  The food is delicious and I like to book a table at the front so you can do the traditional low table/cushions on the floor thing.  DD loves it and so did my nieces and nephew when I took them there.

Restaurant Amus√© is amazing for a special meal without kids.  They do an amazing 10-course degustation and are also happy to make this a vegetarian degustation and accommodate allergies.  Their food and their service is absolutely incredible.  

Anyone know where to get some good Lebanese food in Perth?

We always go back to the Beach Bar next to Salt at Port Beach. The service is good, the food is not bad - seafood, chips, woodfired pizza, the beer is on tap and there is a playground and a view of the ocean as nice as you'll find anywhere really. It's good for Sunday afternoon with the kids.

Blend on Marmion St in Melville has a great reputation for a reason. I don't know anyone who doesn't return once they've been once. We go there for coffee and breakfast but the dinners are also supposed to be great. The home made baked beans are delicious. I haven't had them in a while but used to get these on a big potato cake topped with a poached egg in an avocado half and hollondaise sauce. One of the best breakfasts I've ever had.

Wild Poppy is nice in Fremantle. Grandma chic decor and good for coffee, cake or a simple lunch.

I've been told the Prophet in Vic Park is amazing - I'm looking forward to giving it a go.

Thanks for the responses. I'm starting to compile a list.

Osteria in Nedlands - nom nom, nice italian restaurant, good if you like old fashioned meat - capretto, roasts etc. Their profiteroles are freshly cooked to order as well!

Sensational chinese lovely ambience and superb food - um, name escapes me, but it's basically at the foot of jacobs ladder *googles* Canton bay Chinese restaurant!

SoR - The Iron Pot, Cockburn Road, South Freo. Great steaks and pork belly. It's next to a grotty pub, and you wouldn't think much of if from the outside, but the food is pretty good.

I'll probably go back to The Majestic Indian, at Cockburn Central. It's not the cheapest, but the food was good and the portion sizes pretty generous.

Any place we go back to I feel is the better of two evils- it's only ok, but it's better than trying somewhere without a recommendation and being disappointed.

Mum and Dad live in Attadale and they prefer Madras, over the road from the Cove, so we've never actually been to the Cove.  Madras is always absolutely packed!

This is a great thread, thanks ladies. I find eating out in perth boring, overpriced and some times disappointing. Going to try these places.

I find Beaufort Street Merchant overpriced and average.

Source food opposite the Brisbane is awesome.

Endless Delight Chines (traditional) on Newcastle Street, near William is really really good.

Tuck shop on Newcastle Street, near William Street is also really good.

There's a winery in the hills, cannot for the life of me remember the name - their food was awesome too.

Subiaco- George's Meze- Greek/Mediterranean
Perth- Montereys- Buffet
Perth- Seizan Japanese Restraunt- Japanese
Perth- Shun Fung on the River- Chinese/Seafood
Mt Lawley- Estia- Greek
Mt Lawley- Monte Fiore Cafe- Italian/some general
Northbridge- Oliver's on James- Modern Australian
Leederville- Cranked- Cafe/Tapas
Leederville- Duende Tapas Bar- Tapas
Leederville- Giardini Cafe- Italian/Mediterranean
North Perth- Bolywood Spices- Indian
West Perth- Villa D'Este- Italian

These are some of my regular spots in Perth. When I lived there we went out very frequently (at least twice a week) and now when I go home I'm out all the time. I can provide you with a longer list, too, if you would like as these are just the ones that came to mind.

I went there for the first time a couple of months ago and really liked it.  Also on the Beaufort St strip - love both Clarence's and Cantina.  Bar Five does good bar food, but get there early if you want to sit down (and try the red cider jugs, mmmm).  There are more and more good places popping up around there.

For lunch only (only open for dinner week nights), Tom's in Shafto Lane in the city.  

For Dim Sum with the kids on a Sunday arvo - Welcome Inn Teahouse, and the Vietnamese across the road is awesome (the green one - Viet Hoa I think?)

Also like Duende in Leederville for a girls night.

Bouchard in Mount Street for French.

West End Deli, Cantina, Ria, Duende, Kitsch.
