Old Faithful Bar and BBQ 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 cauliflower burgers, corn tacos and oven-roasted celeriac help, and the great natural wine list help, 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.
