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.

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 Food, Drinks & atmosphere, Staff are very friendly and the restaurant is very clean and well presented. We have been many times since they opened and will continue to do so.
Fantastic place, great atmosphere, cocktails are AMAZING!! Definitely will be back! The wait staff are friendly and there is no rush to get you out the door
Great food great service, would go back again soon ( no complaints) Staff were friendly and accommodating, Wales always checking in to make sure we where happy and if we need more drinks or food
Amazing food but service was a bit slow. Loved the cocktails especially the Nutella martini. Highly recommend it to friends and family. Will definitely visit again.
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.
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 fantastic (we had the $39 meatball deal) and the mojitos were large! We found the staff friendly and prompt. We weren't fond of the outside seating (bar stools at high tables that were all on uneven ground). Would be better to be able to specify where you'd like to sit, which I'll do next time I reserve. Definitely worth it though and we'll be back!
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!!
Once again, very happy to say we enjoyed all of it! Today's standout was the service. From the welcome greeting to all the waiting staff to settling the bill, everyone was amazing. See you again! In fact, I'm booking another table for next Friday night 😀
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
The lady that looked after our table was sooo nice, and helpful....the food was awesome, cocktails were the best, and yummiest.....I didn't like the mac and cheese Meatball, but I would eat a million of the others, can't wait to celebrate me back x
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.
