We had a family dinner recently. We chose the 5 course menu and every course was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. One member of our family asked for the seafood to be substituted and she was delighted with the options given. Service is first class and wine selection made easier by the expertise of Kirstyn and staff.

We had the eight course (plus the four little additional dishes) degustation menu and everything was just perfect. All the dishes were faultless with superb flavours and leaving you wanting to enjoy every last morsel on the plate. Ryan's creative work comes through in every dish and the floor staff are friendly and know all the dishes well. Love the... More

Great restaurant with superb and different local and native food selections - really worthwhile if in town to book and experience this. The seafood options and matched wine always a winner and terrific service.

My husband and I went for the 8 course degustation menu with matched wine. The food was superb. Often in a degustation menu the will be a couple of weak dishes, but that was not the case at this restaurant. Every course was creative and well crafted. The wine were well matched and the staff really knew their stuff. The... More

Had the set menu for New Years Eve. The food and presentation is amazing - couldn't fault any of the dishes. The flavours were spot on. Very accomodating with my boyfriend who doesn't eat seafood. I chose to have the matching wines. Really enjoyed each wine and the staff are very knowledgeable with the wines that they offer. A definite... More

Spent an evening with friends for a celebration at Fen. Entree of Abalone with mushies etc was exceptional but steak for main was very average. At this type of restaurant and at these prices I want a very good steak and was disappointed. Wine was good and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were staying at the hotel next door so had dinner at Fen. The menu is appetising but pretty expensive, the tasting menu is especially pricey. We were given an amuse bouche and bread. We only ordered the main courses of duck and lamb both were excellent, although "sides" are extra, so no frills. We didn't have wine just water... More

We ate here last week to finish off our honeymoon and were not disappointed. We didn't attempt the tasting menu but will definitely go back to try as it looks amazing. We enjoyed both abalone and kangaroo entrees, but the highlight for me was the slow roasted lamb for main, it was just amazing, with crispy skin, delicious sheep's milk... More

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.
