Madalena's bar or 'boteco' is one of a new wave of restaurants opening in Fremantle focusing on exceptional food and wine in a relaxed coastal setting. The restaurant has a style reminiscent of European sidewalk restaurants but sits close to South Beach.
Head chef Adam Rees shares a passion for seafood and vegetarian plates with a beautiful menu that changes seasonally. Named Chef of the Year (The West Australian Good Food Guide Awards 2023), you'll be in good hands.
Madalena’s fosters strong relationships with local farmers, as well as growing a kitchen garden. The menu is fluid, moving with the seasons and the nature of the daily catch.
Tables are at a premium in the afternoons as patrons gather to soak up Fremantle golden evening light. Bookings recommended.
What people are saying:
"A laid-back with a killer wine list and seafood-heavy menu makes for an ideal South Freo long lunch." (#4 in The West Australian Good Food Guide’s Top 100: Perth's Best Restaurants)
