Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very delicious and fresh food. You should try the pork belly with scallops. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Amazing food”

The service was great, the food was so tasty and reasonably priced and the wine list was extensive featuring local specials. Will definitely go again if in the area.

“Amazing Food. Service Lacking.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We attended the Mean Fiddler on a Saturday night. The restaurant wasn’t overly packed for a Saturday night, which probably should have told us something.

The restaurant itself is set up a little peculiar. The tables are so close together the waitress had to walk around another table just to get to the other side of ours and you are required to walk behind the bar to pay the bill as well as to go to the lavatory.

The food was amazing and cooked to perfection, however the service left much to be desired. We waited for quite sometime before anyone came and took our drink orders and then when we were placing our dinner order the waiter left after taking one order and said he would be back but we ended up having to place our order with another waiter!

Although the food was amazing, I don’t think I will be back because of the lake of service.

“Good food, good service, brilliant mussels...”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Good atmosphere, the service was also excellent. The power was out the night we came, and the food was magnificent still! Very generous servings of food and wine. The mussels were perfect, fresh and local, and cooked to perfection!

“Interesting menu”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Had a meal here one night and despite being forgotten to start with, thought the service and friendliness was great. Had tasty, enormous scallops though surprised that they came from the USA - would have been nice if they were Australian. The menu is quite adventurous and our dishes worked very well.
