Best Chicken caesar salad to date!

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... read more

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

Lovely food with great service. I'm a bit disappointed the IGP isn't on tap anymore, my favourite beer. Great deserts. Well worth the stop.

This was only place open on Good Friday but that surely was not the only reason for us spending time here. Excellent food choices and great beers. A must visit for those going to Albany.

Had the sea food salad for lunch. It had big scollops, prawns and delicious fish with salad. It was so good, went back that night for dinner and had same again. My wife and friends had different meals and all left with satisfied smiles on their faces.

Our Albany friends know where to eat in this part of the world, and had their work cut out after introducing us to Castelli's on Saturday.... But they came up trumps with Mean Fiddler. Right in the heart of Albany this place is a gem!! Menu is extensive enough to satisfy pretty well all tastes and the food was well... More
