Favourably located overlooking one of the nicest beaches in the world this cafe/restaurant is great for a morning coffee but was disappointing for the food served from their luncheon menu. A prawn dish selected was less than tasty and the a salad served was limp. Service is quite good and there is an ample selection of wines to choose from... More

I've been to Barchetta several times, but most of them for breakfast. Always a very good service and food. This week, my son and I went there for lunch and tried two of the " specials" : the barramundi and the tournedos. What an amazing gastronomic experience!!! Chef Sarah was the responsible for this great time and the kind and... More

We had breakfast here: eggs, toast and coffee. All very good. The staff are young and eager to help, and the place is buzzing. We had a table outside on the beachside and the weather was glorious!! The food is good and there is a large menu, something for everyone. This would be our top pick for breakfast in Perth.

We were initially a bit put off by the excessive noise due to the polished cement floor but that was quickly made up for by the excellent food. All our dishes were superb- the barramundi, lamb, and crab spaghettini. Lovely view out over the ocean too!

This café/restaurant overlooking Cottesloe Beach is a little beauty. It has a very good, if not extensive, menu. There is a lovely buzz about the place with the staff being busy but always attentive and helpful. It is a great place to experience a Cottesloe sunset but do try and book as it is always busy. Once you have been... More

Barchetta restaurant is blessed with the best location overlooking Cottesloe Beach. The decor is beachy & casual . We were having dinner with friends & basically although the location is stunning & the food is average. Service was good but not outstanding. Overall - I would like to try Barchetta for lunch or breakfast as I'm sure looking at the... More

After a pleasant stroll along Marine Parade a decision made to take tea and refreshments at Barchetta. Expected a slightly more enthusiastic welcome but we found a seat looking out over the ocean, sea breeze was in just enough to make it comfortable. Order taken followed by a pleasant wait watching the surf kites. Coffee was ordinary as were the... More

This is a great beachside place too eat and relax. Right by the beach and elevated. We had the Margarita pizza and something I've never had before. The baked shad sardines dish. Great!!. On the west coast in a place called Cottesloe. It's not the best restaurant I've been to but it's nowhere near as the worst. Prices reasonable and... More

I highly recommend this place if you want great food, flavour sensation, great views of the sun setting over the water and good friendly staff. My partner and I had dinner here last night, he had the Market Fish and I had the Pork Belly, it was great.

Very few Cafes get this position right on the beachside. The team at Barchetta are fast friendly and have breakfast covered. We had the big boat breakfast and the free range eggs. All were cooked to perfection. Service is very quick and the place was bustling at 7.30 am . They have plans to expand the deck so check in... More

The site Barchetta now stands on has been serving refreshments to the locals and tourists for almost 50 years. First as a kiosk where children could get ice creams and beach-goers cold drinks and snacks. It then evolved into the North Cott Cafe and was "the" place for breaky by the beach. It became Barchetta in 2002 and now has a flourishing food, wine and coffee trade lasting from dawn until dusk.
