Used to really enjoy everything about Joe's but after not having been for about 2 years have found the seafood platter to be very disappointed. Terrible oil taste made each piece of fish taste awful. All four of us agreed.

We dined here years ago with friends from overseas, and I had the best steak. I can now say it is still the best, in Perth! A staff member asked "How was your lunch?" I said it was amazing, he pointed out they had been serving the same cut Ribeye, from the same wholesaler for over 10 years! Come and... More

our mistake eating out doors not inside. Meal horrid. Very greasy and only just warm. Pretty tasteless as well. Had fish, chips, prawns - euck! Really? Could have been breadcrumbed cardboard! Fish sticks - well they were ok. Very disappointed with this as had been about 5 years ago and loved it.

The spicy mussels are something worth trying!! The portion is huge. Fish and chips is moderate but it was good for a hungry stomach.

Average service, chips were ok and the fish was alright. Greasy and the outside area was not particularly tidy. The scollops were nice but not amazing. Wouldn't make a second visit

Last time we had lunch here we noticed the chips weren't up to Joe's usual standard - they were "floury" and didn't taste as good as usual. We commented on this and were told that they had changed their supplier, and also volunteered that we were not the first to complain. So today when we stopped in for lunch, we... More

For 17.95 each and an extra @2.00 for glass of wine, this is a great meal. choice of three meals on special. They were large. well presented and tasty. Great view of Fishermans Harbour, and music to accompany meal. The service was great too!!
