About The Meatball Bar - Fremantle

Eat balls! Meatballs, we should stress, and eat them at The Meatball Bar in Fremantle. Yes, if you fancy an Italian-inspired mouthful, there’s no better place than this Perth restaurant on South Terrace. Meatballs are a curious thing because they can be good, they can be bad and they can be ugly. At The Meatball Bar they are tender and moist and come in plenty of interesting forms. If balls are your thing, you honestly need look no further. Sweet balls, savoury balls, balls with special sauce, so many balls that are truly desira-ball. We should warn you though, these Fremantle balls are popular so reserve a table fast.

Further Information

You know a meatball restaurant is good when it has three locations across Perth, and this, the Fremantle branch of The Meatball Bar, is the latest addition to the family. On South Terrace, the name of the game here is great Italian balls, fantastic wine and good company. Premium meats are blended with the finest flavours to create balls that will wow. In fact, the team at The Meatball Bar Fremantle are pretty sure their balls will surpass any other cut of meat in terms of quality, taste and value, which to us sounds like something of a challenge…

Ball lovers of Perth should certainly take The Meatball Bar up on that challenge by getting to know the wonderfully varied menu. Start the ball rolling by sharing a plate of golden crumbed mac and cheese balls, some black angus beef and vintage cheddar balls with crumbed pickles, or some sticky bourbon and espresso pork balls witch hickory BBQ sauce. For the main event, this Fremantle ball bar offers larger portions and an excellent selection of sides and you can be assured that every variation of meatball here has been thought about and cared for. Heck, there are even vegetarian balls and sweet balls to finish with. There are more than a few good reasons why The Meatball Bar is so well-loved across Perth – go and find out why.

Great cocktails and amazing value at happy hour. A new favourite among my friends. Tried the arancini and mac & cheese balls. Tasty snack to complement drinks.

The overall experience was really good. We did the all you can eat which was definitely a mistake and we had to end the round before the second round occurred. We didn't have to wait long before each course was served and the food was definitely worth the money. They have a lot of deals and special for each day which is also good. The drinks and deserts are also amazing. If only we had more room to finish. I just wonder about the food wastage generated particularly with the all you can eat.

The overall experience at the Meatball Bar in Freo was average, the food was good, couldnt fault but the Service was terrible, my husband and I were seated but then no waiter came back to take our drinks order, after about 15 mins of trying to get someones attention my husband got up and went to the bar and ordered our drinks, this promted the waitress to take our food order, it didnt seem busy at all but our food still took over 40mins to arrive, we had to go back to the bar to order another drink as yet again no waiter came to check on us that we were ok or needed anything else. Some training needs to be done or waiters assigned sertain areas to attend as they were just all over the place!

The food was really tasty and service was good. Cocktail was also delicious. I am looking forward to returning when the full menu is up possibly this week as it was still only limited as they had only just been open a week or two. It is a slick classy place which is ideal for get together with friends.

I have been to the Mt Lawley location plenty of times but it was my first experience in Fremantle. Had a great night, the first lot of balls that were cold but luckily the wine and following food made up for it. Great price and atmosphere was awesome. Would also like to compliment your staff who had big smiles on their faces all night and did a fantastic job.

The Food was amazing, but for what you get and what you pay its a tad overpriced. Also, the table set up is horrendous. Especially being tapas, there is not enough room at a table for all the food and drinks. There was four of us and we were put on a table which was squished up against other patrons to the point every time someone wanted to get out we would have to get off our stools. We were also squished right up against the bar/till. It was so cramped and the music was so loud, it was a little off putting and hard to really enjoy ourselves.

I thought the meatballs were excellent. It would be nice to have a platter of various different kinds instead of the all you can eat. There were 4 of us and the meatballs came out too slowly in between courses and by the time we got to the end it was 3 hours later.... We would have been much happier with a selection platter.

Great service, friendly waitress explained how the $39 Sunday night deal worked. Plenty of tasty meatballs delivered to our table. Loved the variety. Only letdown for the nigh was the Reece's chocolate peanut butter cannoli for dessert - it was served really cold straight out of fridge and was rock hard!! Sorbet was yum tho!! Would return!!

Greeted promptly when entering & seated & water was placed on the table. Staff very attentive & were frequently at the table asking if drinks were needed. When we ordered food it was brought out oin quick time although we do feel we were a bit rushed even though the place wasn't very busy.

Restaurant was big and spacious, good atmosphere. Waitress wanted to take our orders with in 5 mins and when we asked for another 5 she took quite a while to come back. Food took a little while to come out but we were all quite hungry. Took about an hour between us arriving and receiving our food. Food was amazing though the wait could have been less

Was seat near toilet entry not good, we did get to be moved though. Little flavour in the Pulled Ball Bag meat balls sour cream over powered the dish and the crispy fried corn chips seemed to be CC's straight out of the packet also served on the cold side. the Bourbon flavoured meat balls were smothered with to much sauce which appeared to be a commercial brand bottled sauce. Overall a bit pricey for mains. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Delicious meatballs and waffle chips and a great price too as we had the $12 lunch special! I washed the meatballs down with a glass of bubbles and my husband enjoyed his favourite espresso martini. We will be back again soon.

We had the best night! Both of us had never been there before, so the Ballgasm (Tapas for 2) was a great choice and the cocktails were to die for! We'll definitely be back to sample more of their amazing menu!

Excellent as always! Though we were limited in time as the table was booked again for later in the evening, service was friendly and the atmosphere was great! They had several gluten free options which change every night, and staff knew all about it - very happy :)

Great service slightly disorganized. They also do not make it clear when booking that you only have the table for a set amount of time before its booked for the next customer s. Should fix door to toilet always banging always open very draughty However food and drinks excellent although the mains are slightly over priced

what a shame, we expected so much from all the great reviews but sadly they couldn't deliver. firstly it took 25 mins to get a drink order, then some how they forgot our food order so after an hour we asked politely and the team were very apologetic (offered us a free drink) they eventually brought us our food an hour and 30 mins after we ordered it. The food was amazballs, cant recommend it enough sadly though because we ordered the tasting plates there wasn't enough room on our very small table to fit it on, and its not cool putting plates on the floor...

Excellent service, all the meatballs were divine and the place had a really cool vibe. I thought the pricing was great too and it's not too far a walk from the Wilson car park.

The food was great, the cocktails were deliscious, but the service was slow. The table next door even commented on the slowness of service. It wasn't busy so I don't understand why it was slow. We had to ask for a bottle of water, even though they had given us our table settings and water glasses, they forgot to bring the water, I asked 20 minutes laters

Good fun and cater to vegetarians. Good service and excellent drinks. The unlimited meatballs came out pretty slow but this was probably a good thing as you took your time to eat them

The food and drinks are great, but service is poor. We waited 20 minutes before we were even offered a drink and then a further 30 minutes before we received them. The food took even longer to arrive at our table and no one even came to check if we were okay or wanted more drinks while we were waiting.

Awesome value for money (All you can eat meatballs, complimentary drink & dessert for $39pp. Food was delicious and so were the mojitos. The only let down was the service though they were understaffed, if that was fixed I'd give it a 6/6.

Overall a pleasing result. We enjoyed it. It was my first experience at The Meatball Bar.... I was sceptical at the start.... once I arrived.... and started with Entree I was pleasantly supposed .
