7 Forts Road, Mount Clarence

Ocean & Paddock

There are plenty of great fish and chip options around town, but it’s hard to top the multi-award winning Ocean & Paddock, voted Best in WA by the WA Fisheries Industry Council Awards for three years in a row! Their seasonal menu features many traditional fish and chip dishes, as well as more inventive uses of local seafood – think seafood tom yum, seared local bluefin tuna with a warm udon salad or even a boil seafood from Louisiana.

Directly south

If you’re looking for big, honest meals, head south, where you’ll find huge portions and spectacular views of the Princess Royal Harbour. They do mean steak, but we reckon their rotating specialties are really where they’re at – especially if you can get your hands on their spicy Korean-style brown chili.

Earl of Spencer

If you like your pub food and pints steeped in history, Spencer’s Earl is a must visit. The owners have worked hard over the past couple of years to really clean up the place – no small feat considering it’s one of Australia’s oldest pubs. If you have little ones in tow they also have a nice enclosed outdoor play area.

Majuba Bistro

Sensual and inviting, Majuba Bistro is the perfect place for a cozy dinner in Albany. This tiered bistro mixes classic French and Spanish bites – though you’ll taste hints from across the continent. Spanish-style duck rillettes, pork belly in a sage crust, mussels with fries… It’s a little piece of Europe in our Deep South.
