Our Swan Valley Restaurant
Experience one of the best restaurants that Perth has to offer.
Established by Elmar and Anette Dieren in April 2005, Elmar’s in the Valley is more than just a German themed restaurant; it is also a brewery, bar, smallgoods store and gift shop. Located in the heart of Western Australia’s Swan Valley, just half an hour’s drive from Perth’s CBD, our indoor and outdoor a la carte restaurant seats upwards of 180 people, and caters to all tastes with its traditional German and modern European cuisine that incorporates Elmar’s preservative- and gluten-free smallgoods.
A popular choice in Perth for all sorts of events and celebrations, including birthdays, Christmas functions, engagement parties, corporate team building events, product launches, bucks and hens parties, Swan Valley private bus groups, outdoor weddings and receptions, and baby showers, Elmar’s in the Valley is a family friendly venue, offering professional, cheerful and welcoming service that incorporates a little bit of German culture into a uniquely Australian environment.
Our all-day dining menu, prepared using only the highest quality products and freshest ingredients, features many dishes that boast a unique German flavour, including our specialty dish – the Schweinehaxe (pork shank). Pickled and roasted, our pork shank weighs in at an average of 1.1kg, and is definitely not for the fainthearted! Other specialties on the menu include the Elmar’s Brewers Plate, which is designed as a main course for two to share, and features a selection of Elmar’s smallgoods and a sample of Elmar’s beers. Our menu is refreshed with daily specials, with the main a la carte menu adjusted biannually to suit the season, and to maintain the authenticity of our German recipes, we are proud to have German chefs Steffen Hoeer and Sebastian Kaiser onboard.
Elmar’s in the Valley is open for lunch on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and for both lunch and dinner from Fridays through to Sundays. We are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but are open for the majority of public holidays. (See our full trading hours here.) We accept bookings from Wednesdays to Sundays; however, we only take a la carte bookings for a maximum of 15 guests. For groups of more than 15 people, please contact our Function Coordinator, who will be more than happy to send you a copy of our Group Bookings Pack via email.

However, please note that these platters are only available in the Beer Garden, and must be pre-ordered at least 6 working days in advance. On weekends, platters are only available after 3pm.
