From Scott Taylor’s small empire of restaurants (The Beaufort Street Merchant, The Trustee, Enrique’s School for Bullfighting) comes The Shorehouse. The newly renovated beachside bar and restaurant with direct sunset views of the Indian Ocean, is fast establishing itself as the quintessential WA beachside dining experience. Enjoy the ocean breeze outside on the charming deck area or in the shade within the beautiful, whitewashed 200-seat dining space. But its prime seaside position isn’t the only drawcard.
Chef Ollie Gould (formerly of Stokehouse, Melbourne) brings WA’s finest produce to a modern Australian menu alongside an innovative bespoke drinks list. It is the kind of food menu you could sit and eat from for hours—oysters, a selection of crudo (raw) fish, small-share dishes from beef tartare to roast pork cheek, and mains including blue swimmer crab linguine, bouillabaisse and lamb rack. The plateau fruits de mer (seafood platter) of marron crab, scallops, oysters and prawns complements the beach vibe. The Josper section of its menu is a nod to the Aussie barbeque culture which it celebrates, featuring charcoal grilled Exmouth tiger prawns, short ribs and Harvey scotch fillet.
The Shorehouse delivers on all fronts with exceptional ocean views, a Mediterranean influenced menu starring local produce, and delivered by unpretentious, attentive service. If the service continues to be as sharp as the food, The Shorehouse will cement its place as one of the best dining experiences along the coastline and a popular summer hang out.
