Best date spots in Perth


In my book, a fish and chips date is always a winner. Casual, cool and laid back, there’s something so romantic about lazing about on the sand with your date – the salt in your hair and the sand between your toes, topped off with some delicious fried food. Throw in a pineapple fritter and you’ve got yourself the best date ever.

Arguably one of the most beautiful coastal spots in the world (perhaps I’m a tad biased), Perth is host to not only more amazing beaches than you could ever ask for, but also some of the best fish and chips around.

No matter if you’re going for an upscale or casual vibe, Perth has the fish and chip spot to make your date truly magical.

Best Casual Fish & Chips: Amberjacks Fish & Chips

Cottesloe Beach

Without a doubt the best fish and chips in Perth, in my opinion! And it seems that most of Perth agrees – at any given time, you’ll see a queue out the door. There’s nothing too fancy here, but they do the basics incredibly well. At $13.50 for a serve of fried hake and chips, it’s a date that your wallet will love, too! There are some indoor and outdoor tables if you wish to dine in, but with the picturesque Indian Ocean right across the road, you’d have to be crazy not to venture down to the sand to enjoy your meal.

Best Upscale Fish & Chips: Kailis Brothers Fish Markets


Really want to impress your date with some amazing seafood? You can’t go past Kailis Bros.  Extensive indoor and outdoor dining options amongst the bustle of Oxford Street make for a lively and cool date atmosphere. And with an extensive range of meals from the basics to the more unique, there’s something for everyone. Adjoining the restaurant is the fish market, so if home cooking is more of your game, then pick up some fresh fish and head back to your place and cook up a storm!

Must try: The seared Tasmanian salmon with tartare sauce and fresh lemon for only $21.50, Beautiful!

Best All-Rounder: Cicerello’s


How could I possibly round up the best fish and chips in Perth without including Cicerello’s? They’ve been a staple of the WA fish and chip scene for nearly a century now, and with good reason. Nestled in amongst the Freo fishing boat harbour, snag a table outside and watch the boats go by as you and your date make plans to see the world! The crisp air and the sparkle of the water amongst some quality food that everyone will love make for a perfect, laid-back Sunday afternoon date.
