Good Old Joe's

A truly friendly place and great sea food, nothing special, just enjoy the beautiful hospitality of what Perth down under has to offer. Sitting by the window you can enjoy the view of the harbor. And yes the skeleton jaw of a great white is what will greet you upon entering.

Great ambience, beach themes and simple decor. Great outlook, especially if you get a seat overlooking the fishing harbour. It's a fun place to people watch as they pass by on the boardwalk just below ....along with watching boats & seagulls. We found the service prompt & helpful. Food was very good. Between us we ordered battered fish & chips,... More

My family took me to this restaurant knowing I love dining near the sea . What a mistake . Not that it was the restaurants fault but to start with parking was impossible . Views were nonexistent as we were stuck in a smallish area at back of the restaurant . It was very busy and terribly noisy we could... More

Went out the back and had just fish and chips at wooden table & chairs facing the water looking towards various boats creates a beautiful setting to relax and eat. There were 2 pieces of fish and substantial chips,the fish was absolutely beautiful. This is worth the stop.
