If you go to Fremantle dont miss the Fishing boat harbour. Then go and eat some fish as it will never be fresher. Worth a visit

Nice boardwalk next to the ocean and parks with few cafes and fish and chips restaurants. If you are here try some! Beware of the seagulls though!

Small, touristy harbour area with boardwalk and a few restaurants. Nice views of harbour, sunsets. Restaurants were mostly fish and chips places that we found to be pretty expensive, crowded, and poor/no service. Lots of seagulls (and tourists feeding them) to contend with if eating...More

Had a nice meal with Indian chicken paratha and very talkative seagulls watching a beautiful big sailing boat and felt like in a novel.

The fishing boat harbour is a popular location for the fish and chipperies available as well as a nice walk along the harbour. The beach at the other end allows a view of the small harbour from the water.

Located on the high street, For the waterside restaurants, the locally prepared beers and the famous fish and chips, along with the harbour atmosphere, the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is the real heart of the town.live music, comedians galore and happy outlook is its forte.

Along the boardwalk are restaurants and bars. Some are relatively inexpensive. The fishing boats are nearby and the outlook pleasant. If you are lucky, you might even see a freight train pass by.

I guess you should zero in on the restaurants there which you like to visit or eat and check their operating hours. If I recall correctly Cicerello's open up to 10pm. So possibly most of the other eatery there are also... More
