Eamon Sullivan's Eatery
Perched on top of the Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club, this restaurant is proud to offer great food, great service and great views minus the exorbitant price tag. Co-owners and Australian sporting heroes Eamon Sullivan, Steve Hooker and Jamie Dwyer have come together to give us a selection of tasty offerings at this North Fremantle located eatery that overlooks Leighton Beach.

Bib and Tucker

The rectangular shaped restaurant has both inside and outside dining areas which amplifies its laid back feel. When we walked in, we were escorted to a table quickly, although others were asked to have a seat towards the back to wait for a table to become available. They were waiting in the sunshine on the relaxed couches with the best view, using stumps for footrests and had drinks in hand, so I don't think they minded the short wait.

As we walked through the restaurant towards our table, the most noticeable thing was the well dressed clientele and the wide range of ages of the customers. The d้cor is rustic and atmosphere is casual. An open kitchen and food preparation area sat alongside the dining tales and was impressive as we could see the food being freshly prepared as the delicious smells wafted through the air.

The drinks menu is wide and varied. You can order anything from beers to wines to juices to soft drinks and cocktails. We tried a glass of Riesling and a Vita Sea juice which is a blend of apple, orange, carrot, ginger and lemon. Both were refreshing and delicious.

For mains we chose the deep fried barramundi which was served with hand cut chips and house tartare and a beef burger which was served in a brioche bun with tomato relish, gruyere cheese, lettuce, aioli and also served with hand made chips. The tartare that came with the fish and the sauces that drizzled over the burger made both dishes mouth wateringly delicious.

There was a range of choices for dessert which we enjoyed having our super attentive waiter explain to us in a French accent. We ended up choosing the pear and star anise tarte tatin. Although a touch on the super sweet side, the light flaky pastry that held the warm cheeks of the pears were delicious. And to have that topped with home made pistachio ice cream made this dessert to die for.

Dessert time

All food is made to order so if you are on a time schedule it is best to ask how long it will take the order to arrive at your table.

Like the restaurant promised we were offered fantastic food, great service and spectacular views, all for a fraction of the price that we'd expect to pay elsewhere.

It looks nice but the review has too many superlatives. Even the wait time was somehow was presented as a "plus." In terms of prices, it just said it as a "fraction" of other similar places which is not very helpful. I know there is a link to their website to see the full menu but what's the point of reading the review then? I love the weekendnotes reviews but sorry to say this sounds more like an advertisement for the venue...

I have been raving on about this restaurant to family and friends since I went. I genuinely believe this place has the whole package. Waiting is normal in popular restaurants. And if you're really interested the bill came up to $77, divided by two people, making it $38.50 each.
