21 of the Best Margaret River Restaurants (our local faves!)
We naturally love to eat (no surprise there!) which is why we wanted to put together a post of all our favourite Margaret River restaurants.
Enjoy this delicious list of Margaret River restaurants – and don’t forget to take your appetite:
Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch
Goanna Bush Cafe
On the hunt for an excellent brunch spot for your next trip down south? Goanna Bush Cafe is a beautifully situated restaurant that serves up the most incredible dishes (think anywhere from Indonesian to Spanish to Texas BBQ vibes) to last you through a day of wine tastings. Just be sure to book, this place fills up fast!
Address: 278 Hayes Rd, Quindalup WA 6281
White Elephant Cafe
With stellar views, excellent coffee, and brunch options to die for, White Elephant Cafe is a must if you’re in the Margaret River area. Whether you’re visiting in winter and need a cozy inside table in their recently expanded space, or visiting in summer and want to enjoy the warm breeze on their chilled out deck, you’ll walk away feeling blissful no matter what. Our recommendation? Get the Smashed Pumpkin breakfast and add bacon – the greatest combo ever.
Address: Gnarabup Rd, Margaret River WA 6285
Wyl and Co
A must visit in Margaret River town for the most outstanding brunch is the delectable Wyl & Co. Using seasonal local produce, they sure make it hard to narrow down a choice from their mouth-watering menu. Plenty of gluten free and vegan options, there’s definitely something for everyone. Paired with a perfectly balanced Allpress Espresso coffee, you are set for a day of South West exploring!
Address: 1/8 Fearn Ave, Margaret River WA 6285
Beer Farm has become synonymous in the region with good brews, great vibes, and epic eats. With a Burnt Ends Smoking Co kitchen pumping out glorious dishes consistently (think fire-kissed meats and more with heavy international influences), this is a venue that’s perfect for a bevvy with the crew, a great lunch with the family, or even just to pick up some of their epic merch. Keep an eye out for their special events too, there’s always something on the boil!
Address: 177 Gale Rd, Metricup WA 6280
Located in Yallingup you can find Chow’s Table a Chinese/Malay lunch restaurant and it’s sooooo good. The menu is made up of small and large plates, so it’s the perfect place for a sharing feast of delicious food.
Nestled in the middle of the Margaret River region, Fishbone delivers Japanese feasting classics (with a touch of Korean flair) that’ll have you happy dancing in your chair. Their sushi? Perfection. Their karaage chicken? The crispiest ever. Bulgogi fries? Genius. We could go on, but we recommend trying to snaffle a booking as quickly as possible for your next trip down south instead. Plus they also do takeaway!
Address: 422 Harmans Mill Rd, Wilyabrup WA 6280
There is something magical about Glenarty Road. At first their seasonally influenced menu may appear simple and humble, but do not let this fool you into thinking it is anything but extraordinary. The vegetables are crisp, the lamb is succulent, and every other aspect of your meal here is beautifully executed. Make a booking and prepare to be blown away
Address: 70 Glenarty Rd, Karridale WA 6288
Normal Van Food Truck
Fast food that hits different. Normal Van Food is the brainchild of Rob Webster, a talented Canadian chef with an impressive career under his belt and a passion for good North American grub done right. The burgers are epic, the chippies are perfectly crisp, and even the desserts are straight up delicious. Check out their Insta to follow where they’ll be throughout the week (and for their tasty weekly specials) – you won’t regret paying them a visit

Wise Wine Vineyard Restaurant
We love long lunches at Wise Vineyard Restaurant – a local winery in Eagle Bay near Dunsborough. The menus are updated daily and they are open 7 days. It’s not everyday you can enjoy both ocean and vineyard views while having lunch! In fact we love Wise so much that we simply had to stock their gin and wines.

When a venue is much more than you were expecting, it makes for a very cool experience – Bungalow Social is one such place.

Combined with an impeccable small plate offering, sourdough pizzas and the most interesting local and international natural wine range in the region, you’ll be back time and time again.
