Ripper views and innovative cuisine on Perth’s northern coast.
Not to be confused with a similar restaurant a few freeway exits closer to the city, or a children’s play centre of the same name, The Beach House at Jindalee, perched on the edge of Eden Beach, offers panoramic views and a modern Australian menu bursting with Asian inspiration.

There’s familiarity in the offer of three different steaks – sirloin, rib-eye, tomahawk – but the bulk of the menu at this breezy surprise package challenges diners to be a little more adventurous. Pick the trio of beef tartare tacos topped with fried curry leaves and pearls of soy for a fresh burst of flavour on the palate. Opt for the scallop and prawn dumplings, a riff on the yum cha favourite siu mai, and they’re served swimming in a rich bisque and topped with flash-fried school prawns. And while guilt may be the overwhelming feeling that comes with scoffing the togarashi-spiced crisp chicken skin chicharrones with curry mayonnaise for dipping, there’s no denying their downright deliciousness. Just yum.
A feed me menu makes it easy, especially for groups, there’s an optional wine pairing, a couple of premium pours (Cullen’s Kevin John, say) among a mix of classics and new-wave drops. Wins all round. Just be sure to book early for the best views.
