Had a spontaneous lunch with my wife, decided to go to the Penny Garden as we had been there before and had good meals. Today was no different. Had a lovely fish and chips which was gluten free (as a coeliac this is a perennial problem!). My wife had the pulled pork sliders which she said were very good. We... More

Booked for lunch on Easter Sunday. As expected, quite busy but informed of expected time to wait on orders, which was not too long and gave us chance to relax. Food was fresh, hot and came out together. Lovely food all round, plenty of choice and veggie options, licensed with nice views. Oh and fantastic customer service :-)

This place was a lovely find, the menu is plentiful and caters for all tastes, food was tasty and the service some of the best I have had on oz. Such a warm and friendly vibe. Well worth a visit for families and couples alike. Lovely outlook and plenty of space for kids, including a bouncy castle.

Penny Garden restaurant was great to visit, my wife & I enjoyed the meal greatly. The Staff were very friendly and there was nothing that was an inconvenience for them. The food was very rich in flavor and the pricing was reasonable. I would recommend this for a restaurant to anyone.

Small but popular little cafe. Staff are lovely and welcoming. I had the waffles with ice cream & berries, they were crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside, could not fault this food. 10/10. Husband had the omelette, full of flavour! Highly recommend this place if your out this way!

We stopped off here during our visit to the Swan Valley, choosing to have just a coffee on our first visit. The menu looked good, so we revisited for lunch. One of the most delicious soups I have ever had - sweet potato and coriander - served piping hot with a warm roll. My husband wished he had chosen the... More

We have visited Penny Garden for breakfast several times in the past 12 months, the last being in December 2016. Each time, the breakfasts on offer have been well cooked and presented meals, yet have a morning feeling. Service was very good, quite friendly - even to the point of advising of when to order before large groups. We have... More

A delightful setting overlooking a picturesque dam. Meal was good and service was amazing and fast. Seafood was fresh and good quality. A good place for a quick mid week meal. Will definitely go back and try their weekend breakfast.

Description
Owner Roger Patten has been a chef for 50 years and started Penny Garden Restaurant with his wife Pam & daughter Jasmine. Before commencement of construction, old Australian pennies were discovered at the entrance to the site. This, combined with the picturesque views and a love of plants & fauna by the owners, formed the history behind the name Penny Garden. Chef Earl Mashmett has over 20 years experience in bars & restaurants in Perth and has created a fresh menu using local produce wherever possible. With gluten free and vegetarian options available, Penny Garden is happy to cater to dietary requirements. All cakes, salad dressings, sauces & marinades are made right here on the premises. Penny Garden is a fully licensed venue with good range of wine, beer and spirits and we also offer split billing. However, you may BYO wine / champagne if you wish (corkage charged at $5 per bottle). We recommend booking to ensure your table
