The goal was to build a local bar and restaurant that was casual but not a little chic. Where light lunches, crisp wines and house cocktails were in fine supply for gaggles of girls looking to goss; where generous plates of modern Australian cuisine and a well curated selection of beers were on hand for boys with big appetites. Where people of all stripes could get together and share some drinks and a bite to eat all night. The dream’s come true for Park & Vine at the retail and entertainment complex sandwiched between Gayton Road and The Boulevard in City Beach, not far from the surf Floreat Beach. Book online, park up at Park & Vine and dine in fine style.
Please note that between 8am and 3pm on weekends, bookings must be for more than 6 people. Please specify with your booking if you do not wish to be seated on a high table.
Weekend brunches are a good place to start at Park & Vine. Floreat Beach is just a few blocks away down The Boulevard, the sun’s shining a little too brightly in the western suburbs of Perth, and you’re eager to pick your time to nibble from anywhere between 8am and 3pm. You’ve chosen right if you’ve booked a table – or a solo sitting – at City Beach’s Park & Vine. It’s a comfortable bar and restaurant, best accessed from Gayton Road, and there’s everything from eggs as you like them on sourdough for the bare-bones bruncher to luxurious trout gravlax, pork belly bacon on potato pancakes, fantastic Asian-Middle Eastern fusion in the pork kofta bao buns – it’s eminently modern Australian, and a very welcome addition to the Perth casual dining. scene.
Lunch and dinner sees the kitchen at Park & Vine pulling out all the stops for a smorgasbord of dishes that toe the line between casual and affordable and five-star Australian cuisine. The chef’s tasting board is a daily delight that comes highly recommended for those diners that like a tasty surprise, while the massive tomahawk steak special (with cheesy duck-fat potatoes and a red wine jus) comfortably feeds two to three people. When truffles in season, you can get the rare delicacy shaved onto any dish for a tenner, bringing extra fruity pungency to the yabbie and sweetcorn ravioli, the house Park & Vine burger, cured Ranger Valley beef salad, vegetarian polenta, or the slow-cooked and smoked BBQ beef brisket with chargrilled corn, Cajun butter and Texas-style sauce. Bookings essential for this gem hidden away in Perth’s City Beach.
The Chicken Parma was so moist and delicious and large serve of salad with it. $20 special and the Pint could be swapped for house bubbles or wine so very happy. Will go back net Wednesday!
A lovely family-friendly place with a menu that has something for everyone. The indoor-outdoor setting is very appealing and the staff are very obliging. A great local restaurant.
I enjoyed Coffee great, the Juice was nice and fresh. The Service great Venue clean. The venue was also quiet enough to hear friends talking
Food was great, place was super chill. Eggs Benedict was delicious, so was the sausage and bacon sandwich. Don't pass up the fries though. Paprika spiced and fantastic
Nice place, was busy, parking was difficult. Waiting period for service and food was very long. Some teething issues I suspect. Food was nice. Burgers were hearty, Tacos looked great. Lamb chops were on a passata sauce, a lot of tomato. Marinated Octopus salad was tasty, and the pasta dish with crab was ok, too much angel hair pasta. Drinks weren't cold enough such as the Cocktail and Prosecco. Also rang out of champagne glasses so had to drink the Prosecco from wine glass. Not the same! Buy more champagne glasses. As a local, I would go back. I have had breakfast there also, and it was very nice.
A very accommodating cafe with slowish service but a lovely and eclectic breakfast menu. The breakfasts contained many store made items it seemed and the flavours were superb. I will definitely be going back to try the other items on the menu before others cotton on to what a cracker this place is. Enjoy the northern sun here while it's still easy to get a table.
Excellent food. Exciting menus for dinner and weekend brunch. I had the trout gravalax with poached eggs recently - delicious! The ginger tonic juice used to be really gingery and peppery but recently it tastes more like apple juice which is disappointing. The space inside is really cramped. They could do with removing a table. Recommended.
We dined at Park and Vine on Sunday evening. The food and service were excellent. The ambiance was great with quiet, live entertainment and of course the setting is lovely. There were also some very good wines that could be purchased by the glass. We'll certainly be going there again.
Calamari was so tender, and not too oily. Similarly the prawn pasta was not oily. I could hardly cut my topside cap steak, even with the steak knife, it was so tough, but the accompanying chips & salad were excellent. I wouldn't order the steak again, but other than that it was a lovely lunch. Bubbly staff, comfortable chairs, nice wines.
Nice and friendly atmosphere and staff. They have a small selection of mains. The polenta salad was great as was the fish of the day. The burgers are very difficult to eat as they are stacked so high and would be nice if they could make these more manageable to eat. On balance a very good experience.
