Palace Arcade Fremantle

Mother

Restaurant

This buzzy Freo joint makes a compelling argument that plant-based dining doesn’t just have to be virtuous, it can also be fun. The satisfying eats in the vein of oyster and chestnut mushroom tartare, and 'squid ink' risotto help, and the great natural wine list, of course.

Kailis Fish Market Cafe

Restaurant

This is one of Freo's best-loved spots. Now, after a makeover, it's looking better than ever. The food here is a cut above your average fish’n’chip joint. Choose from different fish fillets at the fry section. Or wander over to the whole-seafood for some sardines and king prawns. Then there's raw and grilled seafood, plus a killer fish burger. It's all backed up by a big wine list and a good roster of bottled cocktails.
