Fergies, on Bentink

A good place if you feel like something light and easy at lunchtime. Formerly the old Portland Post office, it has great views of both the harbour and the street and the service is excellent. The meals are reasonably priced, and very filling. I had locally caught fish, chips and salad for $6.50... read more

Great service, but unfortunately my meal was sub standard. Ordered garlic bread and twice baked pork belly with apple and walnut salad. Garlic bread was dry and quite tasteless...Pork Belly was bland and dry and crackle rock hard. Apple and walnut salad was the same generic salad served to every other table with some pieces of green apple and walnut... More

Great service and delicious modern Australian food. We had the fish of the day which was excellent. We think it's the pick of Portland.

Very nice location in a lovely old building. The menu has traditional and normal food but when the courses come, here the surprise: delicious food cooked in a very personal, original and tasty way. Also the presentation in the plate was very nice. My compliments to the chef!

How surprised we were to find such a good restaurant in Portland with outstanding views. I had their special curry which was delicious. My husband had the steak sandwich which he also enjoyed. The staff were very pleasant and catered to our needs. We will definitely be coming back to enjoy another meal in such a lovely setting. They also... More

We arrived in Portland and decided to eat at Fergies due to it's great looking menu. We arrived and a very friendly waitress took us to our table. She told us that she would be back soon after to take our order but "not yet" because she had another tables order to take. She was on her own and clearly... More

There is a new menu at Fergies, we thought we would try it out. I had the lamb curry and I really enjoyed it. It was spiced just right and had some cooling sides. My wife had a squid tube and she was impressed with it, a flavour she enjoyed. My daughter had a steak with Diane sauce. She couldn't... More

Lovely old building with great views across the harbour and along the beachfront. Décor is very relaxed and the table service was very good but the meals were a bit overpriced for the quality of the food which I would rate as average.
