Yarri Restaurant and Bar

One of the region’s longest-serving chefs, Aaron Carr sits at the helm of Yarri, which is the Aboriginal word for the blackbutt tree native to the south-west.

Yarri’s cuisine is a celebration of the local producers who make up the South West region, including specialist growers and farmers, vignerons, distillers, fishers, butchers and cheese makers.

Yarri honours nature, seasonality, and our region – the people, produce and place. The food remains close to home with WA produce fronting every dish.
