The Beach Club takes up the back part of the The Cottesloe Hotel with a large outdoor area which replaced the old beer garden.
We really like going to The Beach Club for lunch and it is pretty good for children. It is right across the road from Cottesloe Beach and the playground is only a couple of minutes’ walk. About 2 or 3 minutes in the other direction is the playground in the Civic Centre grounds and this one tends to be a bit quieter and with lots of grass to run around on.
It is a little bit trendy but kid friendly at the same time as there is lots of space and quite a lot of shade. We have eaten there for lunch a few times with our 4 and 5 year olds and we really like it.
The Beach Club does not take bookings so is a great place to go when you haven’t made any plans. We got there right as it opened and it wasn’t too busy though in Summer it gets very busy.
The majority of the restaurant is not table service so you order and pay at the bar. Our children are quite good in restaurants but if you have active little ones you may be better off in the main outdoor area.
The kitchen can be viewed from the main outdoor seating area and our kids loved watching the wood fired pizza oven and meat on a spit going around over the coals.There is a children’s menu with gluten free and vegetarian choices. On this occasion our daughter had the children’s pizza and our son had the fish and chips. The children’s’ fish and chips at The Beach Club are the best we have come across in Perth so far. They give you a small portion of which ever fish of the day is on the main menu and on our visits this has mostly been grilled barramundi. We have tried it and it is fantastic. It also comes with a really tasty coleslaw and crisp apple pieces.
My husband chose the Middle Eastern spiced lamb pizza and I had the Tagliatelle pasta with tiger prawns. Both were excellent. All the pizzas are wood fired which is great. They do a good range of drinks and a fab range of French champagne! We found the costs quite reasonable.
We love The Beach Club and will certainly return. However, it can get very busy on a summer weekend and the times we have gone for lunch a bit later we have sometimes struggled to find a table. The wait for food can be long so it is worth checking before you order as it can be over an hour, not the best when you have hungry children.
