We didnt have a booking and sfter a little wait at the bar we were seated. We enjoyed our meals but there was nothing outstanding that would have me running back here. There are so many places to choose from in this area and I think in a quiet time it may be better.

We booked four weeks prior to Mother's Day for a party of ten with a follow up confirmation phone call from the restaurant closer to the day. We had Vincenzo looking after us and he did simply a fab job. Very attentive and chatty with little compliments here and there, making us relax and enjoying lunch at Char Char Bull.... More

The service was terrible and arrogance supreme. We waited for 20-30 mins to place our drink orders let alone receive them our meal was the same. The staff said their machine was playing up. What happened to a menu docket book or note paper? In our opinion this place is over-rated. The food was slap dash and we have had... More

We arrived with no booking as soon as the doors opened so manaaged to get a table and the restaurant filled up quickly thereafter. On arrival staff were attentive but what appeared to be a small compliment for the size of restaurant soon became disinterested as it filled up. We ordered seared scallops as a starter which was severely overpriced... More

We visited Fremantle for the first time in March, 2015 and were looking forward to what was promoted as the best steak restaurant. Unfortunately, my husband's steak was so tough it was inedible and the green beans were overcooked and rubbery. With credit to the wait staff who enquired about our meal, they showed real concern and we didn't pay... More

The steak is by weight and it was a real shame that 1/4 of it was rubbery fat and sinew. Way too heavy with the salt. Pricey for what you get.

Was a bit noisy at our visit, but very popular restaurant with a great menu for char grilled food, fish and other dishes to suit all tastes. We ordered a cross selection of food, and all of us were happy with our meals, even our dentured companion found his steak well cooked to his liking and chewable. Wine and beer... More
