    Excellent service. Entrees were excellent. My steak was a little overdone, but it was such a nice piece of striploin that I didn’t care. We have been to Freda’s previously and will go again.

    Food was incredible. We had the feed me for 4 people & everything was amazing! Could not fault a thing. We added the anchovy toasts which were spot on! We will definitely be back. Top 5 meal I’ve ever had.

    Found this restaurant on a list for Mother’s Day events. It was worth it. Had a beautiful lunch. And I think it was an overall success. Food was high quality and there was plenty of it as we had a set menu. Looking forward to visiting again and choosing from their regular menu as the flavours weee amazing.

    What a beautiful restaurant with a team that is dedicated to warm friendly service and outstanding food. We met Ruby the chef and her dad Graham at Fredas weekend pop up bakery in Brunswick and decided to visit the restaurant after tasting Rubys baked goods. We had the feed me menu at the restaurant and I have to say they should charge more! The food was plentiful, creative and thoughtfully prepared. We will return!

    Good value Feed Me menu at $75. Poor standard service - waitress repeatedly leant across the table to deposit or remove items. Very very slow with water and drinks service - we restrained ourselves from going to the counter three seperate times. Good food undermined by poor quality staff.

    Hi Sam; Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our feed me menu. We appreciate the feedback with our service and are disappointed with that performance and will implement changes to make sure improvement of those issues. We hope we can see you again to ensure a fabulous evening. Kind regards, Freda’s team
