There’s nothing that makes you feel more bougie than sipping on a glass of champagne and digging into a seafood platter – live your best life and dig into some of our favourites around Perth:
The Art Of Seafood
This platter is picture-perfect enough on it’s own, but the Art of Seafood’s waterfront views sure do add a certain something-something. Served sky-high á la high tea, the chilled tower features a combo of lobster, tiger prawns, oysters, scampi, Morton Bay bugs, pickled octopus and confit tuna.
306 Riverside Drive, East Perth
Complete your next Freo excursion with a ripper seafood platter from Twin Fin. Perching under the Norfolk pines and taking in the sea view certainly isn’t a big ask – we’d happily do it just about any day of the week – but the addition of their BBQ seafood platter makes it a dream day out. This bad boy features half a lobster, a bowl of mussels, some grilled emperor and squid, plus a scallop and oyster.
8/47 Mews Road, Fremantle
Clancy’s Fish Pub
A reliable go-to, Clancy’s platter covers all the bases. Each location varies slightly in their offerings, but you can expect a plate that’s overflowing with goodness – think grilled barramundi, chilli mussels, battered whiting and much more.
51 Cantonment Street, Fremantle
1710 Caves Road, Dunsborough
195 Challenger Parade, City Beach
903 Canning Highway, Applecross
A South Freo classic, Ruocco’s is worth a visit for more than just their pizza. Cop a platter of misto fritto if you’re fancying something fried – you’ll be treated to a mix of barramundi, squid, prawns and scallops – or their grilled platter, which has the same offerings as the misto fritto, plus clams, mussels and Morton Bay bugs.
217 South Terrace, South Fremantle
If you’re into a platter, the Cray‘s two restaurants have got you covered, and then some. Their classic choice is the Cray platter – which is loaded up with Mornay crayfish, battered and crumbed fish, chilli mussels, prawn and scallop skewers and creamy garlic prawns, Moreton Bay bugs, calamari and oysters – but you can also get a Cray-less option, or an ultra-fancy Executive Platter, which also includes marinated octopus, grilled tiger prawns and more.
86 Great Eastern Highway, Belmont
387 Scarborough Beach Road, Innaloo
Mister Walker’s Ocean Platter manages to find the balance between go-to favourites and new twists – serving up Shark Bay bugs, oysters, mussels, grilled prawn cutlets, lemon and chilli squid and smoked salmon, alongside pickled veggies, charred bread and a selection of dips.
Mends Street Jetty, South Perth
Oceans 27‘s spectacular beachside locale is pretty hard to beat, but we’d venture far and wide for their seafood. As well as a pretty tempting tapas board, the Ocean Board is hard to beat: Exmouth tiger prawns, beer battered fish, squid and wakame slaw, miso salmon, local pickled octopus, plus oysters – with the option to add some oysters Kilpatrick, too.
27 Portside Promenade, Alkimos
Bathers Beach House
Another longtime favourite for the Freo set, Bather’s Beach House has the distinction of being one of the few places you can (legally) enjoy a drink with the sand between your toes. Fittingly, their seafood board matches the stunning beachfront location, taking things to the next level with oysters served alongside yuzu viniagrette, soda battered fish and roasted barramundi, fried squid with lime mayo, mussels with nduja, prawns, and local marinated octopus.
47 Mews Road, Fremantle
Catalano & Co
The Cat & Co platter is one of Perth’s best value, overflowing with seafood goodness for only $60. And while it’s easy on your wallet, you can level up the selection of local, fresh seafood even more with the addition of creamy garlic prawns or Morton Bay bug tails.
61 Makybe Drive, Baldivis
Ok, so while this isn’t technically a platter, we can’t help but mention the already legendary Peasants Paradice Cajun seafood boil. Only available at their Cajun Sunday events, your table will be practically overflowing with WA honey bugs, mussels, prawns, potatoes, corn and in-house smoked sausage – alongside the required accoutrements of white bread, butter, hot sauce, and plenty of Old Bay seasoning. Make sure to book in advance, it’s unmissable.
