We had the set menu which is very good value, a three course... More

Unhelpful, facetious, and tried to charge extra the day before a bank holiday. Food was very overpriced in the first place. Decor left a lot to be desired

Very friendly and attentive service. Food was simple and a huge variety. Which is sometimes a worry but not in this case. I had the sausage and mash which was tasty but could have done with some more mash and veg....Free port was offered and the value was excellent

Ordered the set menu, lots of choice and very reasonably priced for large serving, had to have the cocktail instead of desert as too full. Excellent service by all ladies and complimentary port to finish. Highly recommended and suggest you book as very popular. Thanks.

A birthday treat for me made even better by fantastic service and hospitality. Wonderfully filling set menu is the way to go. Don't hesitate to give it a try if you're new to town.

A very yummy lunch enjoyed at the Mean Fiddler in Albany. It's located on the main street closer to the harbour end. The menu is extensive from burgers and steaks to pasta and Asian dishes. The crunchy chicken burger lived up to it's name with a chicken breast crumbed and deep fried topped with bacon and a pineapple ring. Hubby... More

Fabulous selection of food, average price and generous serves. Friendly staff, live the fact that they use local and Australian prawns that makes a huge difference to taste and quality. Thank you Mean Fiddler for being different. Oh! Bonus for those with kids as they eat free. Highly recommend Juliana & Stuart Albany W.A.

Very welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Excellent food, particularly as I have food intolerances and they adapted a menu item for me. Highly recommended.
