Nothing beats a good old-fashioned BYO restaurant!

Pull up with a cooler full of cold ones, or a couple of bottles of vino and feast the night away with your finest friends and/or family, especially when we’re living in a cost-of-living crisis.

Perth is flush with some great options, so we’ve tried to cover a variety of different flavours and locations north, south, east and west – enjoy!


We bandy about the phrase “hidden gem” a lot around these parts, and if any Mossie Park resident heard us call Belin a “hidden gem” they’d either laugh in our face, or tell us to keep it to ourselves. “Authentic” is another oft-used word but gosh darnit, Belin is bringing some seriously authentic Northern Italian culinary class to the western suburbs. The best part of all? It’s BYO with just a $5 corkage fee – molto bene!

43 Victoria Street, Mosman Park


It would be easy to over-complicate things, but put quite simply: Monsterella gets a lot of things just right. Those bases? Naturally risen for 48 hours, light as air, crispy, chewy, perfetto. That sauce? San Marzano tomatoes, ovviamente. A selection of pasta that will tempt even the most fanatic pizza fiend? Buon appetito!

46 Grantham Street, Wembley

Rym Tarng

It was a fortuitous few weeks that saw both Hunter Bread and Rym Tarng open in Bicton Central. The latter, helmed by former Long Chim, Wildflower and Hearth chef Art Bunraksa, is pumping out some pretty unforgettable Thai plates from the 16-seat restaurant. Pork and prawn donuts are enough of a reason to visit, but the signature pork jowl will certainly help seal the deal.

Tra Vinh

Northbridge’s best kept secret (that’s always super busy), Tra Vinh’s mix of Vietnamese and Chinese noodle dishes is one of the best. Very unpretentious and homely, the staff are always super friendly and depending on how much booze you bring, you might find yourself here for a while.

Francoforte Spaghetti Bar

Tucked away down a Northbridge arcade, Francoforte has been our faithful spaghetti stallion since opening way back in 2013. Roo bolognese, guanciale carbonara and kale pesto remain as comfortingly delicious as they were back in our misspent youths – combined with its casual atmosphere it’s the perfect kick off point to a big night out in Northbridge.

We’d practically take a bath in laksa, we love it so much – so it’s no wonder KCH got on our radar shortly after they opened in 2019. KCH takes its name from Sarawak’s capital Kuching, home to a distinctive laksa that is both creamy and tangy. But that’s not where it ends – with plenty of modern takes on Malaysian classics, plus weekly specials that will have you frantically spamming the group chat, “Who’s keen for dinner?!”

Unit 41, 10 Angove Street, North Perth


For one of the finest Japanese dining experiences in Perth, it’s hard to go past Tsukaya. While purists may balk at menu inclusions like tacos and umami fries, we could not be more on board – it really, beautifully, deliciously works.

We could talk for days about Perth’s pizza offerings, but most of the time, we’ll end up back at Rossonero. Tucked away in Mayland’s Lyric Lane, the garage-turned-pizzeria balances classical simplicity with crowd-pleasing modernity – including a welcoming attitude towards BYO.

Short Order Burger Co.

Consisting slinging out some of the best burgers north and south of the river, Short Order Burger Co.’s Hay Street location is also BYO! Whether you want to level up that sneaky work lunch with a couple of brews or make a night of it, Short Order’s got the burger situation sorted.

800 Hay Street, Perth


One of the best cuisines to enjoy BYO style is Italian, and one of Perth’s best Italian joints is Cecchi’s! Now we’d forgive you for remarking, ‘Hey! Cecchi’s isn’t BYO!’. And you would normally be correct, except for the fact that Cecchi’s has just launched BYO Tuesdays – enabling you to enjoy their array antipasto, pizza and pasta delights with that special bottle you’ve been saving.

Nestled on the corner of Scarborough Beach Road and Gildercliffe Street, you might not see Pizzaca Caffe as you pass by. But it’s there, and the locals know all about it. Pizzaca pump out amazing food like woodfire pizzas, home-style pastas, juicy steaks, chilli mussels and more, and just like Cecchi’s above, they do BYO on Tuesday nights!

161 Gildercliffe Street, Scarborough

Khanom Thai

You’d be forgiven for missing this unassuming little Thai spot along Bulwer Street, but it’s worth stopping in for. The quintessential Thai neighbourhood spot, Khanom is small, warm and welcoming, with excellent value (and tasting) dishes.

219 Bulwer Street, Perth

Capri Restaurant

One of Fremantle’s best and longest-standing restaurants, there’s a reason Capri has been around since the ’50s! They’re now onto their fourth generation of family members helping run the joint, and the wholesome, homely vibes will have you back over and over again.

The Secret Italian

A neighbourhood Italian joint seems like a safe bet for BYO enthusiasts – and even better when it’s this good! The Secret Italian has become a favourite of Scarbs locals for their low-key vibes and delicious Italian fare, rocking BYO wine Tuesday-Thursday.

Trattoria Valdarno

Sticking on the Italian tip (they just know how to wine and dine), Valdarno’s is in an unassuming little part of Dalkeith, serving up authentic Italian to a very happy neighbourhood. Big servings means you’re more than likely going to end up taking some home with you, and that’s after bringing your own booze with you because it’s BYO every day of the week (closed Sundays/Mondays).

2/133 Waratah Avenue, Dalkeith


One of Perth’s most legendary (and best value) degustations, the only issue is how bloody hard it to get a booking – that’s how popular Marumo is. Its intimate size doesn’t help, but if you can plan ahead (and drop in at the bottle shop en route) it’s an absolute delight.

22/145 Stirling Highway, Nedlands

Lady Of Ro

Boasting a Mediterranean-inspired lineup of chargrilled share plates, it’ll take you straight to the cobbled pathways of Greece in no time. The owner is also renowned for her desserts (you’ll be familiar if you’ve stopped in at Boucla next door), so make sure you leave some room for her chocolate ricotta cake.

345 Rokeby Road, Subiaco

Mom Dumpling House

Outside a nice can of Coke, is there anything better than beers and dumplings? Fortunately Mom Dumpling House in East Vic Park is happy for you to have both, and you’ll be kept busy with her massive lineup of dumplings and noodle dishes.

The Prophet

Down the road from Mom’s is The Prophet, rocking some fantastic Middle Eastern specialties. One of Perth’s all-time favourites, just about everyone we’ve ever met is a big fan of The Prophet – and how can you not be? Warm, friendly service is matched only by the deliciousness of their dishes.
