Very nice atmosphere and a good menu selection. I had the seafood salad and oysters kilpatrick and my wife had the vegetable platter. Quality was excellent and I would have given 5 stars except they were going to put bbq sauce on the oysters. I asked for plain worstershire sauce and lemon which they were happy to do, but they...

We've enjoyed lunch at The Mean Fiddler 4 times in the past week (and several more times in previous years) - always good quality food, freshly prepared, light and tasty. Being licensed, the specials board included cocktails and pizza but the standard menu had other (more expensive and local) delights. The front windows open up completely so it's not unusual... More

We ordered the set menu and one free children's menu. Loved the value and the variety. The kids loved the crazy brownie dessert and I really enjoyed my veg taster plate. Extremely tasty and I would recommend this place.

We arrived late in Albany and saw this restaurant. We dropped in and were welcomed very charming by the chef. We choose the 3 course menu and it was really good. The variety was good and the plates nicely decorated. The service was excellent and we had one of our best evenings on our trip in Australia. We can highly... More

Thr food was better than expected and quite good and neatly presented. The service was pretty much as you might expect but the prices were just a tad too high for what was provided.

The pork belly was recommended by some locals so three of us ordered this. All 3 agreed it was a fantastic dish

Had made a trip to Albany to see the natural wonders on the coast and was at loss for where to eat. Walked up and down York Street and past this place the first time as we were having a look around but decided we liked the look of their lunch specials. A nice little restaurant there was a few...

We had the 3 course set menu and a bottle of wine, the service was outstanding and when I queried if a starter option was vegetarian, the chef came out and offered to make any vegetarian starter I would like. I had crumbed Brie and it was delicious, as was the vegetarian taster plate!! My partner chose hot wings (the... More

This restaurant was a great find. We were on holidays and looking for somewhere to eat in Albany. We were there on a Friday night and it was very busy. The waitresses were very pleasant and the menu had a good range to choose from. We had stuffed mushrooms for entree and they are a must. The service was quick... More
