Mid range local eatery

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

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here! We weren't expecting great things because when we went to book earlier in the day, the lady was really quite rude however she wasn't there when we turned up for dinner and the staff were lovely. The food was nice and quick to come out considering they were heavily booked. We had a burger and... More

We ate dinner here but were not amazingly hungry so it just chose one course which was delicious. The menu was quite extensive so it was a tough choice but meals served to other diners all looked pretty good.

Friday night before Anzac Day was extremely busy and many potential diners had to be turned away however that did not detract from the service or the quality of the food . Both were excellent. We decided to book again for Saturday evening and teamed up with another couple we had met the previous evening at an adjoining table. We... More

Everything. Food great, good service , nice ambience. A nice touch paper tablecloths and crayons - draw pictures while you wait for your food - good for children to keep them quiet - adults played noughts and crosses

We recently had dinner at Mean Fiddler and the meal was brilliant. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived, which is probably why our starter, garlic bread, was late in arriving however the mains and desserts made up for the lateness. The duck dish was amazing as was the fish. Well presented and great flavours. The price of all... More

Fantastic location on the main road in town and plenty of parking around. Has to be the best chicken Caesar salad I've had to date from anywhere especially the poached egg variation to it. Fresh ingredients and very tender chicken breast. Only downside was the time taken to receive our orders (around half an hour) and the staff weren't friendly... More
