I had the barramundi and some of a friends calamari. Both were awful, seriously. I love Barra, my fave fish in the world but it was beyond bland here. If I wasn't famished it would have not been finished. I also had some of my friends calamari rings. Rubbery crap, seriously awful. Had 2 and left the rest. The atmosphere... More

Another one of the very good fish restaurants around the Fisherman's Quay area. I found the best fish here but the squid was not as good as elsewhere

We look around to try and fin the best seafood restaurant in Fremantle, although the fish was fresh here, everything was either deep fried or swimming in butter. I ordered the Tasmanian Salmon and it was over cooked/dry. The spud was swimming in butter as was the side serving of steamed veggies. My husband ordered the seafood platter for one,... More

We returned to Fremantle after several years and decided to visit Joe's again. What a delight. The food was fresh and there was plenty of it! Tee servicing staff were pleasant and the wine list quite reasonable. It was so good our party decided to dine there again when we returned to Fremantle several days later.

After arriving by boat and a walk around the marina we settled on Joe's for lunch on the balcony. We shared a seafood platter and a tapas plate, together with a glass of wine and a beer, all very good, and large servings. Helpful staff in a very busy restaurant, great views on Success Boat Harbour, we recommend a visit,... More

This was our second experience of eating at Fremantle harbour. Previously, we'd eaten at Kaili's restaurant so this time we tried Joe's. Like a Kaili's, there is a restaurant part of Joe's and a take-away counter. This time we chose to order at the take-away counter, but ate at the tables provided. The menu is more limited and the food... More

We went here for lunch today and not one of us walked away disappointed by anything. The food was beautifully presented, the meals were large and the food was absolutely delicious!! The seafood is beautiful and fresh and cooked to perfection. It was also lovely sitting by the window looking out over the water with the beautiful sea breeze blowing... More
