Pretty good

Some great wines to choose from, menu extensive with very different cuisines - this generally puts me off however my food was very nice. I had the prawn cocktail as an entree and delicious, I had scallops and pork belly dish and very tasty indeed. I had a lovely affogato to finish, very enjoyable... read more

Good place to visit. Food was substantial and interesting. ...a fusion of tastes. Great prawn dishes, two substantial duck dishes which are worth trying. The owner chef made it extra special. Go eat there.

We had a great meal tonight at Mean Fiddler. It was a quiet, wet night so the restaurant was quite empty but the staff were friendly. Our meals were fantastic. My lamb shank was the best I've had for a long time. The potato mash was creamy and delicious. My husband chose the Sichuan duck and was very pleased. The... More

Good value restaurant with an extensive menu and generous servings. The service was friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. A nice wine selection at reasonable prices. The location is good .... in the main street of Albany.

Don't be fooled by the cafe type interior inside lurks a very clever chef who has an interesting menu, which is very well priced. We settled for the $35 3 course menu and were not disappointed. Decent wine list great staff would recommend

I went to Mean Fiddler for lunch with work team and had a very enjoyable lunch. I had the seafood salad and the chef was fine with exchanging the scallops to prawns. The fish and prawns in the salad were grilled to perfection and the sauce was well balanced. I also had the donut desert with raisin gelato and I... More

Rolled up for a Wednesday 6:30pm reservation and they were trying to clear our table by 8:15 in an obvious hurry to get rid of us. It was a quiet night in Albany, but we were happy to take our time over a meal that involved a discussion about our business strategies. The menu was interesting and looked very good,... More

Everything was to die for. We have the cream of cauliflower soup which came with bacon and cheese. Too yum, never wanted that to end. Chicken vermouth was so nice and steak was like cutting butter. Sauces with it to die for then the Sticky date and Creme brûlée, was also so nice

We dined at the Mean Fiddler as part of our plan to explore Albany. Saturday night is busy in most places but we were very surprised and think the staff were as well at how busy! The waitresses were working hard and trying to please each table as the later diners had to wait some time to place orders. The... More
