Wow! What a meal. Albany does not have a huge choice of good restaurants open on a Monday evening so we revisited one that we often done at when visiting. We were not disappointed. Although it was difficult to find an entree as we do not ear pork or shellfish, it did not bother us unduly so we shared a... More

We have been to the Mean Fiddler a few times now and are never disappointed. The food is high quality and well priced, good service and a comfortable atmosphere. We were there on a busy Friday night and the wait staff were attentive and the food was served quickly. Can't fault the Mean Fiddler! Shall most certainly be back on... More

Another place in Albany that could be a lot better than it is. The restaurant has so many tables in it you can barely move and the noise is so loud, the waitstaff have to yell to take your order. For an entrée I order the Thai style spring rolls (3), which were dry, bland and accompanied with a dipping... More

This bustling little cafe/bar/restaurant was exactly what these hungry, weary travellers were looking for. The value was fantastic, with my son finding that the $10 pizza and beer deal filled him up nicely. I was very impressed with the quality of my vegetarian dish of wild mushrooms. The service was friendly and efficient in a relaxed, no-nonsense way. If only... More

We were looking for a nice place to have our last dinner in Albany. Mean Fiddler delivered. Excellent food. We were going to order off the menu at the door. Once inside there was an excellent fixed price option. We took that and added oysters. Excellent. They have a good, local wine list and the pricing is more than fair.

Our group dined here for lunch. Some of us ordered from the cheap lunch menu, some did not. Overall, we thought it was good value for what we got. Our mood was a bit sombre that day having just received some terrible news so we were probably not that easy to please but this was perfect for a light lunch.

After visiting the mean fiddler for only the second time , The Entrée was great , the main meal was as good as last time but need a little more sauce , and the dessert was also great. My biggest gripe and noticed by our whole group was the attitude of the service staff no friendly smiles or even friendly... More

Enjoyed a weekday lunch here. We didn't book and were seated promptly and given a jug of iced water. The restaurant was very busy. Food was prompt and tasty, serves were adequate for the money. There were plenty of good choices for a cheap lunch. The evening menu looked enticing so we may well try that too.

Really nice place, good food, good atmosphere. Great little bar as well. We had the kids there as well, and they catered for them nicely.
