We took a friend to this restaurant whilst in Albany on holiday. Great range on the menu to cover all tastes. The food arrived and was just spectacular. The service was excellent and the place was pretty full even on a Monday night. Highly recommended.

Have eaten here on a number of occasions, always good food, verging on a la carte, licensed with nice wines by the glass. Beer on tap. Daily specials which makes it more interesting if you visit often. Must Book gets very busy, we didn't and the lady was very helpful to get us a table as we were early at... More

We're new to Albany but have visited this restaurant several times with friends and family, including my two little boys (4 and 7). They are always busy, the food is tasty and fresh and the service is friendly and efficient. The specials can be excellent and we have enjoyed some very good meals there. We go because it's reliable and... More

A group of 8 of us went to Mean Fidler to celebrate with a Xmas Dinner. We chose off the menu. 4 Bottles of wine were consumed. A nice Alkoomi Riesling x 3 and a Wignalls Chardonnay. They had a function upstairs as well so were pretty busy, but the waitresses kept up with it, and Peter even was spotted... More

Went for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Staff were very friendly and service was good, even though they were very busy at the time. Their fixed three course menu is excellent value. we had a pleasant surprise when our dessert arrived as they had written in chocolate on the plate "Happy 50th Anniversary"

Went there with a group of friends, first thing we noticed was the wide selection of foods available on the menu and not limited to one style of cuisine like so many other places. It wasn't hard for the group to find something that appealed to them from the menu and we weren't let down when it arrived. Well done... More

After booking two days in advance, we we're not welcomed by the waiter! Never ever try Sichuan Duck as the pork belly and pancacke wasn't fresh at all, presentation good but taste not. I fell sick at night because of the poor quality of food. Not generouse portions! You want to share? Don't as it's not welcomed...
