Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Popped in here with friends for a post- lunch drink. I had the Builder’s Breakfast cocktail and it was delicious. We really liked the Plants in the side wall. The stools at the tables were a little hard on our soft bottoms but I guess...after a few cocktails one wouldn’t notice, lol.More

Nice ambience, had a modern jazz trio playing not too loud. A reasonable menu but everything is overpowered with salt. Hard to wash it down because the mark ups on the wine are over 100% when u buy it by the bottle and I'm scared...to think when you buy it by the glass (read thimble). Unfortunately, as there are so many eateries to choose from in Fremantle, we won't be going back anytime soon - unless they put a sign out the front saying they have reduced the amount of salt and cut the price of wine by 30%More

Cool open bar and kitchen design paired with great food and selection of drinks. We’ve enjoyed this place twice, late night for our last Glas of wine and then together with company during a wine tasting event

I hadn't been her for a few years and was left wondering why. The food was fantastic. We had the roasted Prawns with Macadamias and the Salmon Ceviche Salad, both dishes were so well though out. Very reasonably priced and a very good selection of...beers on tap (albeit with a few too many IPA's, would love to see a Saison or Wit beer on tap). The staff were super helpful and friendly. Can't really fault the place to be honest.More

We want to thank Hank for his outstanding hospitality. He was our waitperson at dinner and demonstrated the perfect level of attentiveness without being obtrusive, so much so his service reminded us of that found in an authentic Italian restaurant. His care, coupled with delicious...food, made for a memorable night. Kindest regards from two very happy customers,More

Was really looking forward to drinks and dinner at Strange Company but it fell way short of expectations. What we liked * Ambience * Friendly wait staff * Willing to accommodate dietary requirements * Good drinks list * Food we could order (see below) was...very tasty. What let it down * Sold out of multiple items on the menu by 6:30pm. * No one notified us of the sold out items when we were handed the menus. * Left feeling hungry as portion sizes were very small and not great value for money. We intentionally went there as a family member had eaten there previously and highly recommended the lamb shoulder and octopus. As we placed our order we were told the lamb shoulder was sold out. We then carried on our ordering and lo and behold the octopus was sold out too. After receiving our food items gradually (it is a grazing style service) we were hungry so one of our party headed back to the counter to order some Turkish bread and dip. He returned to the table and told us it was sold out. We actually thought he was joking. Sadly he was not! This place has the potential to be fantastic but I’m sorry, there’s got to be something going wrong at the kitchen end with stock ordering. We dined in the first week of January, a peak time for people out and about on holidays and it simply wasn’t catering to that. Very strange indeed! Would love to return and try the lamb shoulder but unfortunately we’ll be thinking twice before going back.More

When we arrived we were ignored and had to ask for the drinks/food menu at the bar. I went back to my table to discuss with my partner as to what we would order. I then had to wait at the bar to place our...order as the person serving at the bar totally ignored me for at least 10 minutes as he was talking to a friend. Eventually I was able to place our order. I ordered a bottle of wine but they only had the blend and not the Margaret River Cab Sauv as advertised. I then proceeded to order two dishes from a short food menu only to be told they didn't have that either. Needless to say we went elsewhere for our dinner Strange company for sure. Not sure of their business modelMore

The first time we attempted to go it we were unsuccessful as the bar was at capacity but it was worth the effort to go back. There was a great vibe in there and the atmosphere was really good. Lots of people were eating, but...we only went for drinks. Mohito was lovely.More

Hi Chris, We don’t take reservations however as long as you aren’t bringing down an entire entourage at 7.30pm on Saturday you should be fine to walk in and find yourself a seat. There are plenty of accomodation options... More
