If you're after a modern pub atmosphere, with traditional pub type food and service, this may be great for you. I think that explains the high Star reviews. But if you're looking for a nice meal with service, it doesn't compare to other restaurants in...More

The Karalee On Preston is my ‘local pub’. Together with the Cygnet Theatre, it has been a key part of the Preston Street entertainment precinct since 1975. Turning down from Labouchere Road into Preston Street, you pass a variety of restaurants, cafes and a bar...More

Description
The Karalee is a great place to catch up with family and friends, host your next function or follow live sports on our big screens. We are proud to have won Best Casual Dining Pub (AHA WA Awards, Metropolitan 2016) and you’d be silly not to come and try our award winning steak sandwich (AHA WA Awards, Metropolitan winner 2014, 2017 and also finalists in 2015 and 2016). The Karalee was established in 1975 and means “waterhole” in the language of Australia’s indigenous people. The Karalee is true to its name as a popular meeting place for locals and visitors alike (shout out to our regulars from country WA!). We pride ourselves on our relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, great food and drinks and above all, genuine and friendly customer service. We look forward to seeing you at The Karalee soon!
