If you are looking to get out of the CBD, the historic hub of Fremantle provides for a laid-back night out, full of quaint bars, busy streets, buskers, and people meandering around eating gelato. With an impressive selection of quirky restaurants and concept eateries, your ideal dinner date awaits you at this colourful port-side town. Here are five spots you may want to consider the next time you’re making dinner plans. 


Bread in Common

Dedicated to featuring a seasonal farm to table menu, Bread In Common is serving up some of the richest food this side of the river. As their name suggests, bread is a winning staple here, so don’t think about foregoing the bread and butter – which, we might add, is unlimited. With a sharing style menu and an extensive wine list, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t pay them a visit sooner.


Manuka Woodfire Kitchen

If you’re looking for soulful wood-fired cooking, look no further than Manuka. This vibrant restaurant takes pizza to the next level and their drinks list is all about supporting the locals – from craft beer to spirits, they are committed to sourcing their goods from WA producers. Even if pizza isn’t your thing, with options like coal-grilled tiger prawns and wood roasted olives, Manuka have covered all bases.



Strange Company

Strange Company is perfect if you’re wanting something a bit funkier, with their modern décor, relaxed open vibe and live music evenings. Designed for sharing, the menu focuses on tapas-style nibbles and prime cuts of charcuterie. Their novella-length wine list is well-curated and showcases the best wines from around Australia – you can even assemble your own cheese board to go with it, or go for the chef’s selection for two!


Modern Eatery

Simple, clean, and sophisticated, The Modern Eatery is serving up high quality sashimi and sushi staples while offering up Japanese classics like tempura and gyozas. If you’re after a small restaurant with moody lighting and great service, this is place for you. Situated right in the heart of Fremantle, you can even grab a seat at one of their window tables and watch the busy night life as it passes by.



La Sosta

With their passion for modern Italian food, La Sosta manages the impressive feat of standing out in the crowd of established Italian restaurants in Fremantle. With the traditional entrée, main, and dessert style menu that many of us miss in modern day Perth, the warm atmosphere creates the perfect mix between comfort and sophistication. The fact that it has grown from a small restaurant to a two story, 250 seat venue speaks for itself.
