Visiting from Victoria, my husband and I stumbled into Mean Fiddler by chance and we were glad that we did. My husband had the best garlic prawns that he, and I, had ever tasted. I had battered whiting with Caesar Salad, tasty and fresh. Loved it! Peter was a fabulous host, made me a beautiful desert of salted caramelised macadamia... More

We don't recommend restaurants to our guests unless we have tried it ourselves. This visit was long overdue as we have had many guests who have dined here and enjoyed the experience. We had heard a lot about the Margaret River Brie in a coconut and sesame seed crumb, deep fried and served with a salad garnish and plum dipping... More

We visited Albany and were recommended this restaurant, we both had the set three course meal which was delicious for $35 on a Saturday night!!!! The wine was also very reasonably priced, very nice place, with a good atmosphere would definitely recommend.

Just Brilliant, no nonsense service, a brilliant menu, good specials as well, food was spot on and the wine list has some absolute gems. The attention to detail, like Burgundy glasses served with the Pinot Noir was a pleasant surprise. We will return to sample more of the menu on offer.

I've never been disappointed every time I've eaten at the Mean Fiddler. Fresh beautifully cooked meals, and very good value. Highly recommended.

Wow. Just visited this restaurant after being here previously. Maybe it was new management, or just that the rude old waitress was having a bad day but I will never again return. Being told (not asked)that I would have to hurry up and order because of a crowd coming was bad enough but when I said maybe we'll give it... More

We sit we are served by delightful friendly wait staff. & our meal ( which... More
