Lamont’s has been an iconic CBD dining location for more than two decades. Our St Georges Tce shop was ground breaking for Perth, offering convenience meals and office catering along with exclusive boardroom dining. This led to the opening of our highly successful East Perth location on the Swan River, again providing a revolutionary dining experience. Our exceptional reputation has followed with us to our current and most popular location Bishops House. Executive Chef Nathan Le has been managing our kitchens for over a decade, and imparts a unique interpretation on fashionable food, including a delightful marriage between fresh and local ingredients, combining traditional cooking methods with new techniques, while always staying true to the idea of simple flavor combinations. “Perth, being isolated from other cities, brings its own challenges. But it’s these challenges that make the food in Perth fresh – taking world flavours and using local ingredients from Wagyu beef to amazing seafood and truffles. Cooking with these ingredients is one of the most satisfying aspects of being a chef in Perth” Bishops House can offer you private dining room options, cocktail events under the stars, balcony dining while watching the sun set, and unique dinner settings in our outdoor gardens.
