Excellent range of food available

We ate here two nights in a row - the food and the menu was so good that we had to go back to try our next favourite sounding meal. Range of food as excellent and the food matched the description on the menu. Good service and range of wines.

Arrived in Albany and on the first night our fellow travellers recommended a "small place down the road". Packed (so make a booking!) we were welcomed warmly. The food was superb! The wine (Rickety Gate SB) was also a perfect compliment. At first glance seems pricey, but wait until you see the portion sizes and the TASTE! A little bit... More

We went here for our anniversary lunch. They have paper tablecloths so my husband drew me a card (as he didn't get me one!!!!!!) The food was fantastic (so yummy that we had to have desert and had to loosen out belts). They have a wide range of wines, beer and other drinks. The staff are fantastic, do yourself a... More

The food and service were excellent. My partner and I both had whiting which was cooked to perfection. My only complaint was the salad - for some reason restaurants seem loathe to add tomatoes. Will look forward to returning to the Mean Fiddler!!

A very friendly eatery with the owner always making conversation with customers.He is passionate about food unfortunately i think the cook/chef needs to bit more innovative with his meals. Most were old fashioned meals mum used to make. Saying this the food was tasty and fresh.

Located at the harbour end of York Street we found the restaurant to be very warm and toasty on a cool Saturday evening. We were lucky to have been shown to a table without a reservation. The place was full and we were told we may have to wait 20 minutes before ordering. No problem! We had natural NZ oysters... More

We have visited Mean Fiddler a number of times and the food is always excellent. My daughter celebrated her birthday yesterday and we happily returned here as we know we will enjoy dinner. We had a mix of fresh and Kilpatrick oysters that were the biggest and most delicious we have ever eaten. Stunning! We were given a complimentary serve... More
