I've been following these guys for a while on social media, loving their posts of local fresh ingredients and forage finds. Last night my husband and his parents visited for the tasting menu and it was superb. Incredible menu, fantastic service and overall wonderful evening. Thank you very much!

Had the 5-course tasting menu (7 if you count Amuse-Bouches x 2) and matching wines with my partner. Service was attentive & most of the food was divine. The fish, the abalone & the lamb dishes were fabulous - could eat them again & again. The last course was a burnt marshmallow dessert & it didn't align with the rest... More

We are from Melbourne, but love Port Fairy. Someone recommended Fen. Fen describes its food as "native" and it is in the context of the menu which includes choices such as an eel and abalone entree and WA Marin, local fish etc.. We enjoyed each of these menu items, and also a lamb dish. We have had the good fortune... More

Visited with foodie friends on a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. The dining highlight of the week, which was talked about for a long time after. Undoubtedly one of the best meals I've ever had - 5 course menu with wine pairings was faultless throughout. Very highly recommended!

If you appreciate food cooked with originality and character, you will be happy with their degustation menu accompanied by excellent wines. This places is Michelin star level and the focus is on food and service in a minimalist well lighted (to see the food) atmosphere. Were surprised the place was not full.

My partner and I had the Valentine's dinner menu at Fens this year on a road trip and it was one of the best decisions we made! The menu consisted of 9 courses for $130 per person, and included exotic (to me, non local!) ingredients like Davison plums, warrigal greens, paper bark and muntries, just to name a few! They...

We dined as a couple al a carte. The tables are placed well apart, the music was non obtrusive, conversing was easy and the lighting was subtle. The restaurant is within a building that is quite historic, however the decor was contemporary. The restaurant staff were very welcoming, and they allowed us to choose our table where we felt most...

Excellent food. So well plated. Every dish came with beautiful plates. It was a lovely culinary journey. Small touches in every bite. Apples mixed with the soft crab is a delight in the mouth. You can sense the chef's passion. The atmosphere and decor is intimate, relaxed and attentive.

Description
Fen - low-lying flat coastal land. Our small restaurant in seaside Port Fairy was formerly known as The Stag Restaurant. We have been open since March 2015 and have recently re-branded to Fen Restaurant in March 2016. Fen's brand of modern dining combine innovative native ingredients with more traditional produce to create food that is uniquely Australian. Our drinks list is exclusively Australian and favours small-batch, handmade, low intervention, often organic or bio-dynamic wines and spirits.
