Grill’d Claremont Quarter – Healthy Burgers

Standard

Grill’d Claremont Quarter, 23 St Quentin Avenue, Claremont WA 6010, Phone 9384 1084.

It’s a lot cosier than many of their venues, but small and perfectly formed. It’s also decorated with their traditional industrial, trashy chic. They’ve added a funky mural to the entire back wall. Nice.
