Bungalow Neighbourhood Social – it was worth the long wait, and locals are rapt this watering hole is open at last. Craft beer, natural wine, wood fired pizza with a Euro vibe and great service.
Yarri, mentioned above for their Saturday morning donuts, is a smart restaurant loved for their lunch and dinner service. Chef Aaron Carr prepares thoughtful food that honours the seasons, and it’s served with Snake + Herring wine. They’re doing a set course this summer, and bookings are essential.
Blue Manna is also fantastic for lunch. Next door to Yarri, it shares a beautiful view of the peppermint trees of Dugalup Creek. They have the freshest seafood around, with luscious oysters, whole fish, crab and prawns arriving daily. You can also buy fresh seafood at their takeaway shop next door. Book ahead to avoid missing out.
Pourhouse is kicking goals, with a delicious new menu. Portions are generous, and you can book a table for dinner or simply pop in for a drink.
Pedro’s Mexican keeps getting better, with big flavours and even bigger cocktails. Dig into well known faves like guacamole, chilli con queso, nachos and burritos or try their take on Tex Mex with char grilled zucchinis stuffed with flavoursome fillings of your choice. Family friendly and they offer takeaway too.
Dunsborough Tavern. Bit of a guilty pleasure, this one. It’s owned by Woolworths, but if you’ve had a big day and the kids are tired and hungry, The Tav is awesome. There’s a huge indoor playground, a great family-friendly menu and a local beer and wine list. Plus the Christmas tree tower of sauce.
Bayside Burger Bar serves up burgers, beers, milkshakes and fries with a nod to the region’s surfing history. Burgers are named after famous surf breaks, and this is an awesome place to take the family for an easy meal after a big day out.
