  • 1. La Sosta

    $$$ | Vegan

    It begins as temptation as your senses are teased by the smells wafting from the open kitchen. Rosemary, chili, oregano, olive oil, and tomato scents will drive you crazy until your own meal lands in front of you. And then, bliss. This modern Italian eatery rivals any classic, and there are plenty in Fremantle. Italians have been ruling the roost for decades, so much that there's been a push to dub the port city, Little Italy. La Sosta offers a buzzy atmosphere while serving creative pasta dishes that will leave you wanting more. Start with the focaccia and leave room for dessert---the tiramisu is calling your name.

  • 2. Moore and Moore Café

    $$ | Coffee

    You'll know this clean-living café by the retro bikes stacked out front next to the potted garden, the eclectic mix of people, and music that often streams from the doorway. The health-conscious food here is as tasty as the vibe is charming, and you can expect organic eggs, nitrate-free bacon with sides of chickpeas or spinach, and coffee alternatives like beetroot lattes and chai tea.

    $$ | Coffee

    This industrial-chic bakery-cum-restaurant wins the award for hottest interior in town, with dozens of vintage-style globes streaming from the warehouse ceiling or looping in red electrical cord over suspended beams. Herb boxes line the 1890s heritage facade, while out back the wood-fired ovens, affectionately named Hansel and Gretel, pump out organic bread. An open kitchen creates modern Australian meals that go well with, you guessed it, bread.

  • 5. Char Char


    Waterfront Fremantle is renowned for its seafood restaurants, so going to a harborside venue for steak seems almost irreverent, but meat lovers revel in the juicy steak selection at Char Char. They dropped the "bull" from their name but you'll still get a fine piece of meat, cooked to perfection, here. This lively restaurant, with full table service, specializes in chargrilled prime beef selected from year-old, grass-fed Murray Grey cattle.

  • 6. Cicerello's


    No visit to Fremantle is complete without a stop at this locally famous fish-and-chippery that was once featured on a postage stamp. Housed in a boathouse-style building fronting Fremantle's lovely Fishing Boat Harbour, this joint serves the real thing: fresh oysters, mussels, crabs, fish, lobsters, and crispy chips. No wonder they're experts—they've been doing it since 1903.

    This Fremantle restaurant looks like everyone's vision of a run-down, weather-beaten Maine diner. With uninterrupted harbor views, authentic nautical bric-a-brac, and great food, you can't go wrong. Recommendations include the salt-and-pepper squid, stuffed tiger prawns, and chili mussels. An outdoor section with umbrella-covered tables serves "Joe's to Go" takeaway food from a smaller, fish-and-chip-style menu.

    A large, open space, exposed brick, timber beams, high ceilings, and funky booth seating give way to a warehouse feel at this plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan eatery. If you commonly say yes to meals like pumpkin mash, ramen noodles, and coconut curry and no to bottled water, plastic straws, and excess waste, then you'll surely love this bohemian-vibe restaurant.

  • 11. The Essex

    Closed Permanently

    This 1886 cottage, unobtrusively situated on a quiet street away from the crowds, is one of the best places for upscale dining in Western Australia. Its elegant, candle-lighted dining room is decorated with thick carpets and antiques.The fresh local seafood is excellent. Head chef Noel Friend offers an extensive menu, including Essex fish and mussel chowder, blue manna crab cakes, and saffron king prawns. The fillet rossini wrapped in proscuitto, with a rich duck liver pate and a cabernet jus is something to look out for, while surf and turf with Harvey fillet and Pemberton Marron is definitely a keeper. Portions are generous and the extensive wine list includes some of Australia's best vintages.

  • 12. Wild Poppy

    $$ | Coffee
    Closed Permanently

    Sitting on the corner of bohemian Wray Avenue, Wild Poppy fits right in with its granny-chic patchwork upholstered lounges, crocheted cushions, mismatched crockery, and vintage paintings. Twists on the norm are what the South African owner-operators do best, blending their own culture with global flavors. The fried chilli and masala eggs are a firm favorite, as is the black Thai rice pudding paired with a banana fritter. Sweet tooths will adore the Belgian waffle with salted caramel and ice cream while meat-lovers can opt for the Boerewors sausage. They also do standard options for those feeling less adventurous, but why be bland? Especially when everything is made from scratch in-house, using organic and free range ingredients, catering for gluten and dairy free diets. Even the cups and take-away containers are fully compostable.
