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.
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.
Always have awesome, attentive service staff. Food and drinks are always delicious, new and served very, very quickly. Fantastic atmosphere, definitely one of our favourites!
Great cocktails and service. Delish variety of balls — though I do wish they’d expand their veggie ball options... but that’s just me :) I look forward to going again.
The customer service, cocktails and meatballs were fantastic! The staff were friendly and prompt and we really enjoyed the great atmosphere and would recommend to anybody.
We had a lovely time the food, drinks and service was great. We also took advantage of the specials. We took people there as new customers they also loved it too
The Meatballs were delicious and the staff very friendly. We had the Ballgasm menu which is a selection 6 plates of meatballs , salad & chips. A nice way to try out a good selection. Only down side was they bought them all out together very quickly and it was too rushed. Felt like they were thrown at us and piled up. Needed to be served at a slower pace to enjoy and spread it out. As a result we were done quickly and headed off somewhere else for more drinks. If it was slower we would have ordered more drinks and spent more time and money there. We also had Mojito jug that was a bit watery.
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.
Always a great night out! Love the meatballs - great variety and flavours. My husband and my friend's husband are big eaters are do find the find it not substantial enough for themselves (leave slightly hungry but too expensive to order enough to fill them). but perfect quantitiy for myself and my friend without leaving us feeling bloatedt like a pub meal would. Have been several time and will go again :)
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!
Food and drinks were amazing and cannot fault that. Only downside was putting 4 adults on a table designed for 2, we we're just really lucky we were seated next to the bar and could use that to store excess. The only other fault was ordering drinks all together, the cocktail coming out straight away and the two spirits coming out after asking twice. Will definitely be back, food was sooooo good
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.
