Little Chef and I were enjoying a day seeing the sights of Elizabeth Quay and visiting the Bell Tower. We popped into Isle of Voyage, a restaurant that had opened in 2016, for a light bite to eat.
Perthies will be familiar with the iconic Florence Hummerston Kiosk, which is the home of Isle of Voyage. For years it lived on the grassy Perth Esplanade and had been home to nightclubs and restaurants over the years. When it was time for the Esplanade to be dug up to make way for Elizabeth Quay, the heritage listed building was carefully taken down brick by brick and then lovingly re-built and restored on the “island” at Elizabeth Quay.
The interior is crisp, bright and airy, it’s easy to become distracted by the indoor surrounds and almost forget about the amazing view from the windows. In one direction is the Swan River and look the other way for a magical view over the quay to the city skyline.
Though I was just going to eat something small, the menu looks good. There’s plenty of variety, with a focus of fresh salads which change daily, tarts, pastas, wood fired pizzas and more.
The junior bites menu also doubles as a colouring sheet, which kept Little Chef busy. He also loved the quiz that got him thinking too! There are lots of yummy options for kids – carbonara, pasta with tomato sugo, pizzas, fish cakes and more.
Each children’s meal is $15 and comes with a cup of freshly squeezed orange or apple juice and scoop of vanilla ice cream afterwards. The kid’s drinks arrive in an old school enamel cup, which is a lovely touch.
Little Chef’s sausages and chips were also served on an enamel plate. The sausages were very tasty, you can tell they are good quality and they are served with a generous pile of seasoned chips and tomato sauce.
I enjoyed a sweet treat and chose a pretty little lemon yogurt cake, which was scrumptiously moist.
Little Chef’s vanilla Ice cream came with a choice of flavoured toppings and he picked the bright green mint sauce! He loved it, though it got a bit messy, as it overflowed over the bowl onto the napkin.
We both enjoyed our little taste of Isle of Voyage. I was expecting that it would be good, as I love their sister café Voyage Kitchen in Hillarys. We’ll certainly be back for a meal in future. Isle of Voyage is located next to the Elizabeth Quay Playground. If you’re looking for something more casual or to take away there’s also the Voyage “General Store” next to the restaurant, which has coffee, cold drinks and freshly made sweet and savoury snacks to take away.
