Situated at the stylish west end of Perth's CBD, Medina Grand Hotel's restaurant, Metro Bar and Bistro, is the perfect spot for an after-work drink and a Modern Australian meal. The decor is modern with muted tunes that are punctuated by accents of red and floor to ceiling windows that overlook the city skyline. Take a seat on the large balcony for an open-air version of the gorgeous view.

Part of the Medina Grand Hotel, alongside Perth’s Convention Centre. Minutes walk from central train stations.

When the Perth convention centre was completed a few years ago, much of the city’s population found it to be an eyesore with no real function. I, for one, beg to differ. The opening of the convention centre also marked the launch of the new Medina Grand Hotel; home to Metro Bar and Bistro. This inner-city venue had perfected its style from the get-go. With a groovy “red marble” bar and a restaurant boasting clean lines, sleek white decor and a beautiful terraced area with city skyline views, it’s just what you want from a CBD restaurant.

The chefs at Metro take pride in sourcing fine Australian produce and try to keep it as local as possible when they can. If you’re not opposed to sharing food, you’ll find a few options that tick this box, such as the duck liver and cognac parfait or the Metro tasting plate with flatbread, dips, chorizo, olives and more. If you’re after something a little more substantial, there are entrees like Asian braised pork belly with apple and daikon salad or half-shell scallops with an interesting accompaniment of goat’s cheese, spinach, crisp prosciutto and balsamic port reduction. The menu here may not span several pages but it sure does cover a variety of flavours and textures. A prime example of this is the saffron linguine with banana prawns, chilli, prosciutto, garlic basil and extra virgin olive oil. As an absolute sucker for any dish combining prawns and prosciutto, I’m not surprised that this has become Metro’s signature. Alternatively there’s a supremely fresh crispy-skin barramundi with Italian vegetables, a perfectly cooked Tender Ridge scotch fillet and a mouth-watering garlic-roasted chicken breast with all the bells and whistles, to take your fancy. Metro, you had me at “linguine”!
