    The food, wine and service were excellent. The dishes were fresh and so full of flavor beautifully presented. Our favorites were the Truffle artichoke, wagyu bresaola, crusty bread and Blue swimmer crab, crushed pea, lemon evoo and the Shark Bay whiting, tempura, lemon.

    This neighbourhood wine store / bistro showcases the best of Australian food and wine (and an amazing selection of high quality, well priced imported wines too). The service is second to none - the staff here set the benchmark all other WA restaurants should be aspiring to. I highly recommend the shark bay whiting, truffle artichoke (my favourite item on the menu), the pork belly and the fillet steak.

    Very nice lunch, Blue swimmer crab, crushed pea, lemon evoo, Shark Bay whiting, tempura, lemon and the Salmon carpaccio were wonderful. (Maybe better because Kate was cooking).

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Perth. We can share Tapas size of dishes for two, so enjoy various delicious foods little by little. The marriage of foods and wine is so good.

About the restaurant

Cocktail hour yet? Lamont’s Wine Store in Cottesloe is kinda like a wine bar, kinda like a bistro. While the emphasis here is on amazing wines, they certainly don’t skimp on the food. Their seasonal tapas menu gives you so much to choose from, you can complement your evening inebriant with fresh and seasonal foods from WA. Their starters really set the pace with gob-stuffers such as duck parfait and venison chorizos. And their tapas can be does as sides or as mains with seafood surprises like whiting, blue swimmer crab and grilled tiger prawns. Mouth-watering meats include crisped quail and a Chinese Szechuan style steak. Sorry? Oh right, the wine list. They’ve got the best local and international wines you could dream of, usually imported direct from Euro-cellars to be enjoyed at the bar or bought to take away. Lamont’s also does tasting events and private bookings for functions. Head over to Lamont’s early because they’re sure to keep you up late. Best dish: Black Angus pie
