If you love to experience a region via your plate – the Mandurah region is the place to unfold your napkin.
There are quite a few Mandurah restaurants, bars and cafes that go above and beyond to ensure, where possible, that the dishes and drinks come from within the local region.
If you are after a slightly left-of-centre and unique dining experience, explore the culinary creativity at Flics Kitchen in Mandurah. Experimental and not afraid to try new flavour combinations this is a restaurant that likes to push traditional boundaries. Sourcing local ingredients, giving them an international twist and serving them in a tapas style is the best way to describe the dining experience.
