We ordered a pork knuckle and salad for three of us. We tried three different beers. The food was delicious but the meat was a little dry. I liked the pilsner. Staff were friendly. Nice place.to eat lunch on a hot summer's day.

I recently visited with family for a birthday celebration. The staff were very friendly, especially Michelle and Kelly. They provided excellent service to ensure all went well. The beers are very good and the food perfect. Thank you.

This is apopular destination judging by the number of patrons. Ordered pork hocks, duck breast & sausages. Service was quick & efficient. Serving is large & pretty tasty as well. The duck serving was quite small but very tasty.

Description
Elmar’s In The Valley is one of the best restaurants in the Swan Valley. It is a family friendly venue that celebrates traditional German and Australian cuisine in the tranquil surrounds of the Swan Valley in Western Australia. It is the largest German restaurant in Perth and the Swan Valley’s biggest beer garden with over two acres of lush green lawn and shady gum trees. Elmar’s in the Valley opened in 2005 after the success of two smallgoods stores in Highgate and Myaree. Unlike other German restaurants, Elmar’s in the Valley is not a German themed restaurant, it is German!
