Had lunch at Elmars. and was not disappointed. The biggest problem I had was to chose between the Bratwurst and the Pork Shank. Because the wife was not overly hungry I went for the shank as the waitress said it would be big enough to...More

Nice meal, tasty beer and good service. Hubby ordered the salmon which he said was good. I ordered grill bratwurst - which was ok just a bit plain. Would have liked to see more German fare on the menu and less of the standard Turkish...More

Pork shank was awesome - Crackling is done just right with the meat still succulent. Perfect with the sauerkraut. Delish! Portion size is huge - we had to pack to go. Subway was average. Had the craft beer sampler - good stuff.

This place really needs to do something about how their security conduct themselves. 1. Calling your customers "Fat" and "Ugly Sl*ts" is disgusting. You're not a Church, and if this Dress Code was properly enforced almost all of our girls would not have been allowed...More

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!
