Freo may be better known for its coffee than its restaurants. But if you look beyond the draw of South Terrace and its Cappuccino Strip, you’ll find a range of eateries as eclectic as the city itself.

The best restaurants in Fremantle include everything from well-loved establishments such as Bread in Common and Manuka Woodfired Kitchen, to more casual bars and burger spots.

This casual, dog-friendly taqueria in South Freo is landing bold blows for Aus-Mexican cooking. Maybe you'll find a pork and pineapple taco dressed with a native strawberry and saltbush sauce.
