Manuka Woodfire Kitchen

Barbecue in Fremantle

Relying almost exclusively on a wood-fired oven, the kitchen at Manuka is tiny, but it's still big enough to turn out some of the tastiest food in town. The passionate chef has become an expert at taming the flame; his seasonal menu could include whole roasted fish, coal-grilled eggplant or peppers and basil pesto. The pizzas are also excellent.

A proudly local drinks menu includes Margaret River wine, cocktails using craft gin from Perth and beers from WA's Nail Brewing. The Red Ale is a hoppy marvel.
