“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.

Sometimes it is all about a stunning venue, attentive waiting staff, outstanding food and a great selection of wine. The Harbour Master restaurant is in no hurry. They take their time and make a dinner an event. When you dine at the restaurant time stands still and you are absorbed in the task at hand – enjoying a wonderful evening out.

The contemporary menu celebrates the best of local Western Australian produce. The Head Chef has created a mouth-watering collection of dishes with a few surprises to tempt your dinner appetite.  See our entire menu by clicking the link below.

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.
