“good fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Right on the waterfront, fish straight from the boats. A wide range of choice all cooked to order and fresh. Great for families and special occasions. Eat in or sitting outside overlooking the harbour.

“The Real Fremantle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

A stroll around the Old Fishing Boat Harbour gives you a feel for the real working Fremantle. On foot or by bicycle it can be a cheap family day out. There are moles jutting into the ocean where you can see leisure, fishing and larger vessels heading in and out this and the inner harbour and sailing club adjacent. Plenty of spots for a picnic including on the Esplanade Park with toilet blocks at each end. The playground there is so good it is a pity it's just for the kids! The Carriage Coffee Shop is right next to it. Cycle paths aplenty. The fish and chips here are legendary. There's also Little Creatures Brewery and an icecream store. At the moment a ferris wheel is set up on the park and offers spectacular views. Nearby is the free maritime museum, Bather's Beach, the Round House lookout, a cycle path to the inner harbour and the whole west end of old buildings to walk around. Something for everyone and especially lovely as the sunsets.

“Delightful views and places to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

When the weather is good head for the Fishing Boat Harbour. A wander around the boats followed by a meal or a drink at any of the eateries is possibly one of the most relaxing things to do in Fremantle.

“Great place to pend an afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

It was lovely to have time to chill and wander around the Harbour. People watching, good coffee, fish and chips - aaah! Remember a jacket in the afternoon.
