Dinner in Fremantle
“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating” – Luciano Pavarotti.
The contemporary menu at this popular Fremantle restaurant celebrates the best of local Western Australian produce. Head Chef, Andy Amis, has created a mouth-watering collection of dishes with a few surprises to tempt your dinner appetite. Try the seared Dorper lamb matched with kimchi, sour cream and charred corn or the ever popular fried WA cuttlefish with pepper berry aioli and dressed leaves for entree.
Mains include chargrilled kangaroo with a blueberry balsamic glaze and Goldband snapper with a chorizo crumb as well as simply beautiful sides to share. If you’ve left time for dessert then the braised apple, raspberry and rhubarb crumble is a winter must or finish your dinner in Fremantle with a cheese platter.
Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the stylish cocktail bar, serving champagne by the glass, premium spirits and tempting cocktails. Accompany your meal with a variety of local and international wines from our walk-in wine room.
Historic Fremantle Location
The restaurant design features historic images of Fremantle Harbour and surrounds to highlight the link between the development of the city and the evolution of the Hotel site. The Harbour Master derives its name from the first owner of the Hotel site, Captain Daniel Scott, who arrived in Fremantle in 1829 and became Harbour Master until his retirement in 1851. Captain Scott leased the Hotel site to the Government as a temporary convict establishment to assist in housing the first arrivals.
