Fresh, fancy and French East Perth has become a hot spot of cool restaurants, cafes and bars, which is a far cry from the days when it was full of factories and light industrial workshops. The gentrification of the area has seen million dollar-plus units and terraces line the river and a whole new generation of patrons are enjoying waterside dining. Blackbird Restaurant on Claisebrook Lake is one such venue and meets the high standard of its peers. Focusing on rustic European fare and quality ingredients, you can rock up for dinner and free tapas from Tuesday to Sunday or for Sunday lunch. With seasonal, table d’hote and South of France menus, there is plenty of choice. If you go for the fixed menu option, regulars recommend the piperade of paprika, capsicum, black savourine goats’ cheese and baked egg. Best dish: Coq au vin served with Provençale rice.
