Summer is such a beautiful time to go to the Fishing Boat Harbour in Fremantle. It was a warm day but there was a strong breeze so it made it feel a little cooler. We decided to have an early dinner at the Bather’s Beach House so we could watch the sunset and maybe take a photo. It was quite windy in the outside dining area, so we decided to go inside. The decor is modern but still manages to possess a beach house feel.
Claude started with a Little Creatures Pale Ale and when it came out with a icy glass we thought the evening looked promising and we weren’t disappointed. The Menu offered great choice with the standard entree and mains or boards for sharing.
For an entree we decided to share the sea salt and pepper squid with citrus aioli ($14.00). This was a great choice, the serving was generous and the taste fantastic. The tender squid and tangy aioli made a great combination.
My choice of cheeseburger, chips, onion, pickle and sauce ($18.00) wasn’t anything special but it was still enjoyable. Although the patty was a little too thick for my taste, it was still moist.
Claude was very happy with his beef short ribs, beer and barbecue sauce with crispy onions ($26.00). It wasn’t a large serving so he was glad we had ordered the entree. The ribs were tender with a smoky barbecue flavour and the onion rings crisp and tasty.
Throughout our meal the service was friendly and efficient but as we dined at 6pm it is hard to say if this would be the case when the restaurant is full, I can only judge by my experience and it was excellent.
We had a walk along Bather’s Beach when we left the restaurant and the sun had just began to set. With a wedding happening nearby, children paddling in the water and kites floating in the sky it made for a beautiful evening.
