Where To Get The Best Steak In Perth
Nothing quite beats a perfect steak, and it’s a luxury so many of us often deny ourselves when eating out. Perhaps they’re a bit expensive, perhaps you’d rather play it safe lest the meat comes out not quite cooked right.
Well here’s 10 places that know what they’re doing when it comes to a side of beef (that aren’t called Rockpool), so go forth, maybe take a little risk, and treat yourself to a perfectly cooked slice of steak – you deserve it.
Angel Falls Grill
No one knows steak like the South Americans, and Angel Falls Grill’s modern take on Venezualan food has been a hit accordingly. They have some killer grill options and huge share plates, plus you can build your own grill – just pick from a Rump Cap, Porterhouse or Eye Fillet, choose your sides and add one of their delicious salsas to top it off. Oh and here’s the kicker – their entire menu is gluten free!

The Meat & Wine Co
Equal to South America’s love of great steak would have to be Africa’s, and The Meat & Wine Co have been bringing a unique African-inspired steakhouse menu to locations around Australia for years now. They back their exclusive brand of Monte Beef, and provide a heap of options, from grass- or grain-fed to marbled wagyu and the 1.1kg Tomahawk, serious steak connoisseurs only!
Ground Floor, 108 St Georges Terrace, Perth
Mayfair Lane step up to the plate with a juicy, red chunk of their menu dedicated to the grill. Their beef is locally sourced from Stirling Ranges Beef by Butterfield in Borden, and there’s a variety of options starting at a 200g Tenderloin up to a 1.2kg daily on-the-bone special. If you really wanna treat yourself, throw in some duck fat potatoes on the side to really make sure work is cancelled after lunch.
72 Outram Street, Perth
If it’s a good, hearty Irish pub feed you’re after, set your course to Fibber McGee’s in Leederville, over 20 years old and slowing no signs of slowing down yet. They pride themselves on having the best dry-aged steak in Australia, and after you’ve dived into one of their Rib-Eye, Fillet, Sirloin, Rump or Medallion options and wash it down with a hearty pint of Guinness, you won’t argue. They even own and operate their own farm, which supplies the restaurant’s beef, as well as some of their pork and fresh produce. As an added bonus, they’re super-well priced as well.
711 Newcastle Street, Leederville
P’tite Ardoise Bistro
One of, if not dare we say the best, French restaurants in Perth, P’tite Ardois is a phenomenal date spot. Intimate, cosy, warm, relaxed, not too loud and very friendly, it’s the perfect place for a night spent cosying up to someone special. But enough of all that, their Boeuf Bourguignon is second-to-none around Perth, and there’s usually a steak blackboard special always done to perfection (just call ahead to check).
283 Beaufort Street, Perth
Matilda Bay Food & Wine
If you’re looking for something a little fancier, and with a side of Swan River views, than Matilda Bay Food & Wine is a classic choice. They’ve been running the game in the golden triangle for years now thanks to a menu that’s elegant in its simplicity, but not afraid to keep up with the times. What hasn’t changed is their commitment to a great steak, and their wood fired Black and Pitch Black Angus Fillets, along with 28-day Dry-Aged Sirloins, are untouchable.
3 Hackett Drive, Crawley
The CBD’s huge Market Grounds venue somehow always manages to find itself rather busy, and we put a lot of that down to their excellent pub menu. Featuring a host of casual options, their 300gm rump cap is a nice filler, but if you’re brave the 1kg dry aged rib eye is a pearler. Of course you could always share, and at $99 it’s the best-priced Tomahawk in the city.
10 Telethon Avenue, Perth
Samson’s Paddock has been a Mosman Park mainstay since 2014 thanks to a fantastic booze selection to go with their seasonal share plate style dining. But the real winner, with regards to this article anyway, is their Steak & Whisky pairings. The 400gm Sirloin Tasting Board features Veal, Grain-Fed, Grass-Fed and Wagyu MB9+ offerings, which you can then pair with a variety of whiskies ranging from beginners up to old and rare.
3 Glyde Street, Mosman Park
There’s something primal about meat and fire coming together, but Nextdoor manages to keep things refined with a contemporary fine dining menu. Fittingly named, it’s an extension of the offerings at the neighbouring Olsen Butcher, a third-generation premium butcher – so you know their steaks are going to be top-notch.
79 Angelo Street, South Perth
Pirate Life’s well-heeled dining room, TOMA is serving up a selection of steaks that will entice even the most seafaring souls to land. A custom-built grill burns Banksia and Jarrah, which infuses into their succulent range of steaks – their signature is the TOMAhawk, which can be upgraded to the most extravagant surf and turf we’ve ever seen with the addition of a lobster tail!
440 Murray Street, Perth
We had a steak at Cosy Del’s over a year ago that has haunted us almost every day since – it was that good. Their current offering is slightly different, but still just as good: cooked over coals, Black Angus scotch fillet is served with charred eggplants, leeks and some taters for good measure.
13 Lathlain Place, Lathlain
Le Rebelle balances classic bistro tradition with a contemporary attitude – and we reckon there’s nothing more classic bistro than some steak frites. Grain-fed fillet steak is juicy and tender, taken to the next level paired with some frites and decadent béarnaise. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!
676 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley
Northbridge’s Peasants Paradice has built something of a cult following since opening in 2021 – although they had a head start with years of pop-ups and kitchen takeovers prior. The favour-packed global menu is a winner from start to finish, but their steak – served with chimmichuri, kasundi, broccolini and crushed potato – is worth a second (or third, or fourth…) look.
197 Brisbane Street, Perth
Heritage Wine Bar
With its crisp white linens, bentwood chairs and monochrome palette, Heritage has the classic good looks its name would suggest. Their steak is also a stunner: dry aged, organic grass fed beef is topped with a slab of smoked garlic butter. Devoid of any trendy gimmicks, the menu has a distinctively European flair with an unmistakably WA flavour.
