Having travelled from Bridgetown to Albany on our way towards Melbourne, we checked into a lovely B&B & sourced a good place to eat in town. Booked The Mean Fiddler & very pleased we did because it was packed to the gunnels when we arrived! Other people who came after us had to wait. Fantastic friendly & efficient service -brought...

Visited this restaurant for dinner in August with my family. Some of the good things about this restaurant is that it seems very family orientated with a great set menu for $39.95 with plenty of choices of a starter; main; desert. My wife raved about the Beef Sate Sticks served with steamed rice and pickled carrot. This must be good... More

Was told by motel staff to try this place out. So glad we did. Great, friendly service. The seafood salad was amazing. Definitely enough on there as a main meal. Well priced

Modern Australian food with a comprehensive menu which happily caters for gluten free diners. Food seemed fresh and well presented - generous serves for, hungrier diners. Relaxed casual atmosphere and great service.

We saw a sign out the front advertising 3 courses for $39.95, and thought we would check it out. We were not disappointed. This is such a fun place to visit for a meal, especially for dinner. The interior kind of had the feel of an Irish Pub with an Aussie touch. Kids (and parents) will love this place as... More

Wet wet Albany day, but inside the restaurant it was cosy. We had decided to try a luncheon for a birthday present. We are so pleased we did. Ordered fish and chips thinking basics. When it presented anything but basic. The fish was cooked perfectly, so difficult for most people. The chips were just right. And the coleslaw, well, I... More

Enjoyed our evening out with kids, friends and their kids - table of 9. Food was quite slow to come out and they missed one person's entreé on the set menu - that one never came out. Food was good though and service warm and friendly.

I rang ahead and spoke with Peter the chef regarding a vegan meal. The chickpea curry was yummy! He then presented me with an acquafaba meringue for dessert which was amazing. This is the second time I have eaten here and Peter has always put himself out to cook a yummy meal for me.
