Now that the weather is warming up and tourists are coming back to Fremantle it seems to be strange planning by the Marine&Harbours department to start work on the Fishing Boat Harbour boardwalk in front of Joe’s Fishshack.

The first cruiseship  will be arriving on October 20, so let’s hope the maintenance work does not take months to complete.

FACELIFTS AT THE FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

The refurbishment of the Kailis Fish Cafe in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour have been completed and the popular fish&chips destination is open to the public again, with a raw fish bar added.

Down the road the sterile HELM bar at Little Creatures has been gutted and the old Harbourside bar has been brought back with cosy launches and armchairs. I much prefer it that way!

THE REAL FREO MARKETS RIVALRY

Posted in city of fremantle, food, markets, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on September 30, 2019

 

 

There is a bit of healthy rivalry going on between the two markets in Henderson Street with the Fremantle Markets pointing out they are the REAL market.

All that because the True Blue Markets opened a few weeks ago just opposite, so more choice for visitors to Freo.

The new markets specialises in Aboriginal art and craft while our great Freo markets offers a wide range of goods and foods, so check them both out today!

Hey Freo, are we all getting ready for a great long weekend in our beautiful little port city?

The weather is going to be just fine, so go for nice long walks and (re)discover our gorgeous Fremantle, and enjoy the cafes, restaurants, bars and unique shops we have here.

I took this photo at Bathers Beach early yesterday evening just before the City Ward candidates forum

The colours of the Mexican Kitchen restaurant on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip stand out

Freo’s only Mexican restaurant has been there for a very long time, so it must be doing something right, and it is open every day of the week.

If you go and have a look at the changes at Fremantle’s Kings Square also go and try out the great coffee and food at the Little Italian PARLAPA cafe in William Street, straight opposite the Townhall.

CHANGES IN FREO’S FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, hospitality, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on September 17, 2019

 

 

Quite a few changes are happening in the popular Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.  Kailis is changing their concept with a new 80s style fish cafe that will have a raw fish section and will feature the cheaper fish such as mullet, herring, etc.

The Helm bar that opened upstairs at Little Creatures in November last year was something I  and many others never liked and it clearly failed because now they are going back to the past and the old Harbour Bar will be recreated.

The demise of Sweetlips was very disappointing but there is work going on and signs stating that a new concept will open in that space soon, so stay tuned.

FREO’S FANTASTIC FACELIFT

 

Facelift 1

 

It is really exciting for me that there is so much going on in Fremantle and that good old Freo is getting a well-deserved facelift all over town.

At Kailis in the Fishing Boat Harbour work has started on the new 80s cafe that will feature more affordable fish such as herring and mullet and will have a raw fish section. I love sashimi so I’d better win Lotto so that I can become a regular at the raw fish bar.

In gorgeous High Street another heritage facade is being restored while at ground level the Breaks cafe is being renovated.

And at Kings Square the raised tree beds are being removed so that the new pavement can be put down.

Fremantle’s rejuvenation has been a long time coming but I hope and believe that brilliant times are the future of our beautiful city.
