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

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.

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!
