We dined at Fen after reading reviews and were not disappointed. Amazing degustation with unusual ingredients and flavours. Wasn't big fan of the abalone but my husband loved it all. We rolled out feeling we received real value for money.

We decided to opt for the 8 course tasting menu in order to try as many things as possible and it was a great decision. The combination of native herbs and plants with more familiar foods was truly exceptional. Every mouthful was a new taste...More

Fen - low-lying flat coastal land. Our small restaurant in seaside Port Fairy was formerly known as The Stag Restaurant. We have been open since March 2015 and have recently re-branded to Fen Restaurant in March 2016. Fen's brand of modern dining combine innovative native ingredients with more traditional produce to create food that is uniquely Australian. Our drinks list is exclusively Australian and favours small-batch, handmade, low intervention, often organic or bio-dynamic wines and spirits.
