The first visit, a catch up with old friends. Had a window seat. The service was excellent, the food was very good and we enjoyed the fact that it was not too noisy so conversations were possible. First visit, but not last.

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!
