Eat, drink and save room for pudding
There are some great eateries up in Perth's northern suburbs, and a real contender for value, choice and great food is the Currambine Bar and Bistro. Featuring a large dining area, a main bar area, sports bar and cocktail lounge, there's lots of space to spread out in including the popular alfresco veranda.
The Currambine is fast becoming a hot spot for locals seeking wonderful food with service to match.
The menu on offer at the Currambine is extensive, and if their normal menu wasn't sufficient, then prepare yourself to be spoilt for choices even further when you're also offered their Specials Menu too; of whole sheet of tasty sounding meals to tempt you with.
The menu is huge, and then you've also got a further list of specials
The menu includes an array of all day (and all evening) dining options in addition to a great value lunch menu too. When I last visited we opted for selections from the lunch menu, and at $20 each, these were well priced, especially considering the size of the portions that we received. Lunch time items are available between 11.30am - 5pm.
The menu also features a number of options that are available for those with gluten intolerances; simply look out for the GFO tag next to the menu item, which indicates a Gluten Free Option is available on request. Staff are also very happy to accommodate any special food allergy requests, just ask your server when you order.
Portions are huge, so bring your appetite - this lunch special was only $20
Main meals come in large sizes, but make sure you leave some room for the beautiful array of desserts and cakes on offer. There's a whole cabinet packed full of cheesecakes, gateaux's, slices, cakes and pies and the only difficulty you have is making your selection.
Thankfully, this is one restaurant where the excellence of the food served is complimented by great customer service too. So often when we eat out in Perth, the food can be mighty fine but the service is often a real let down. On the times that I have visited The Currambine, we've been treated to prompt service, and chatty and friendly staff who appear genuinely delighted to serve you. Service such as this is a rarity, but a welcome one.
Before you visit, check out the 'what's on' guide, as there is some light entertainment provided on weekend nights. By visiting the what's on guide to The Currambine, you can also keep abreast of the specials and promotions on beers and cocktail evenings.
