Madalena’s Bar 

406 South Tce, South Fremantle WA 6162

The shining star of South Fremantle, Madalena’s serves up truly exceptional line-caught seafood, all locally sourced of course. Chef Adam Rees creates dishes that both inspire and delight like Wadjemup crudo on a bed of Ajo blanco with spiced toasted pepitas or Albany sardines with parsley and caper butter vinaigrette. What we love about Madalena’s is that you can go for a beer and a bowl of house-made hand cut fries (triple cooked no less!) or you can browse their super extensive wine list, while chucking back some oysters, and go deep into food and wine world. 

Chicho Gelato

1 Cantonment St, Fremantle WA 6160

Chicho Gelato has always been a Perth city venture until the gelataria opened its doors in Fremantle last year. Chez and Carly undoubtedly make the best gelato in town with flavours that range from traditional, like Piemonte hazelnut or pistachio to the creatively extreme like lavender honeycomb. They’re a great after-dinner treat, and did we mention that they have a Willy Wonka-esque chocolate tap? No kidding. 


Komatsu, G12/10 William St, Fremantle WA 6160

Fremantle’s oldest ramen joint that has recently moved into new premises, the food however remains thankfully unchanged. We’re talking the dirty variety of ramen. Lots of salt, fat and flavour. The giant bowls come oil slicked and the garnishing is kept to a minimum - just pork, spring onion and the option of freshly shaved leek, which is a must. Great in summer, but particularly applicable in winter when the wind absolutely howls. 

The Navy Club

64 High St, Fremantle WA 6160

Our absolute favourite place to get a beer and eat a packet of Smith’s chips. This venue is a longstanding Fremantle legend, originally dedicated to sailors and seafarers, however accessible for all to visit. With one of the very best panoramic views of Freo, this pub is all old time charm, kind of like a RSL. They also make some pretty decent $8 cheese and onion toasties.


41 Market St, Fremantle WA 6160

New venue Lola’s just opened a couple doors down from WCWS and gee we’re happy about it. Owned and operated by Harry and Harriet (who do Peggy’s, another great Freo lunch spot) Lola’s does pizza in all its glory. Stylish fitout and super simple pizzas make it a great date spot, family friendly outing or you can pick up a takeaway and head to Bather’s Beach for sunset and a BYO wine. The latter option is one of our faves to do with the kids. But back to the pizzas - think fancy Hawaiian topped with pickled red onions or simple Pepperoni drizzled with fermented honey or USA style deep-dish. FYI Chicho Gelato is directly opposite, say no more.
