5 restaurants for Mother’s Day lunch in Perth

Cantina 663

Tapas! Our favourite way to spend the afternoon. Chat away, drink slowly, eat slowly. Or, if you would rather a more traditional sit down lunch (or breakfast, or dinner) Cantina do that, too. The menu is Spanish and Portuguese, the ingredients are always seasonal, and where possible, organic.

a: 663 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley

p: (08) 93704883

Galangal

Galangal

Named in 2014 as the "Best Thai Restaurant in Australia" at the Restaurant and Catering Awards, Galangal is sure to please any Thai food lover. Plus, the Australian Good Food Guide say it's a "timelessly stylish setting", which sounds just about perfect for a Mother's Day lunch.
