The food here is of a high standard, but the place is let down by the noise level and the rushed service. They need to invest is some soundproofing or just join all the tables together as it's impossible to hear the people at your own table when the restaurant is full. I was a bit disappointed that the menu... More

The restaurant was packed when we arrived so staff kindly took our number and called us when a table became available. We decided on the set menu (3 courses- very good value), but were aware that staff (kitchen staff) were sat waiting for us to finish so that they could go home (all staff came out and sat on a...

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.
