Drinks were ordered. One beer, one cocktail. Took 25 minutes to arrive. Not impressed. Entree: stuffed prawns. The prawns themselves were delicious. But for a $22 entree i expect more than 3 measly prawns!!!!!!!! Three!!!!! Anyway, moving on... Mains: grilled platter. Fish was so over cooked it was worse than over cooked chicken. It was actually more firm than over... More

We visited during the Easter weekend. The meals were huge with the price adequate. Staff were friendly. Nothing too special. We had seafood platter for one and the prawn pasta. I did really enjoy the sticky date pudding though!

Visited on Good Friday evening so very busy and although the staff were helpful and pleasant...it was a tad disorganised......and we waited over an hour for our meal. We all choose an entree size dish and that was a very generous size, we had battered fish and chips and squid, beautifully cooked and very enjoyable. Our table was by the... More

We went tonight and we were a party of 6 so we had a variety of dishes.We all thought the dishes were okay but not great..They were large but a bit standard and not exceptional..The desserts to finish were similarly ordinary . The restaurant is right by the wharves of Freemantle harbour with a lovely view and the service was... More

we had heard that this is the place to go to in Freemantle so we did. The theme is as expected and matched the name and you must like fried food to eat there at a reasonable price. We were there as a family of 5 and all the meals were of reasonable proportions and included fish and chips, stuffed... More

We had dinner here and the food was not great, but OK. I had a Caesar salad with a side of fries and the portion was very generous, my wife had the barramundi, which she said was quite good.

Visited at the end of a long day. Food was of a good standard and service was quick. It lacked a little atmosphere but probably just because it was early evening and not that busy. Worth a trip, fish and chips were excellent.
