Fish, Family & Fond Memories
The Paino family connection to the WA seafood industry goes back over 100 years, and four generations.
This deep connection continues today, at Big Fish Direct in Bicton, where Sam Paino Jr is the proud owner. The store carries only the finest quality West Australian and Australian seafood – something customers have come to know and expect.
“Stocking mainly WA caught fish is a major factor that separates us from larger seafood outlets. We do not allow any imported fish or prawns in our store. Our customers are the most important part of our business. We pride ourselves on meeting their requirements,” said Sam.
This Fathers Day treat Dad to a superb seafood feast from Big Fish Direct. The friendly and knowledgable staff provide great advice and old fashioned customer service with a smile.
Open 7 days a week, Monday to Saturday 8am-6pm and Sunday 10am-6pm. Find Big Fish Direct on Facebook.

Joe Napoli loves a challenge. Already a successful restaurateur (three times Gold Plate award finalist restaurant Bella Napoli), Joe was looking for a new project to sink his teeth into. When premises in Fremantle became available, Joe jumped at the opportunity. The result is Portorosa Italian Restaurant Pizzeria set in the heart of Fremantle. Big on charm and reasonable in price, Portorosa is your classic Mediterranean-style venue, where it’s all about family, friends sharing fantastic food.
Seven years on and Portorosa is still going strong. What is it that makes Portorosa an enduring Freo classic? The menu is based on the Italian tradition of preparing food, combining simplicity with the best seasonal ingredients, such as quality locally grown produce and seafood, poultry and meat. The pasta is home-made and the wood fired pizza is amazing.
New Spearwood Restaurant now open. For bookings, visit the website http://www.portorosa.com.au or book online through Dimmi.

Lock Dad up this Father’s Day
Give your Dad an experience he’ll never forget this Father’s Day with a visit to Perth’s only World Heritage listed site, Fremantle Prison. Trust us, he doesn’t need any more socks!
Doing Time and Great Escapes tours highlight the daily life of convicts and prisoners, perfect if your Dad is interested in history. Give him a thrill as the tour guide delves into the darker side of the Prison’s history at night on an eerie Torchlight Tour. Or give him the ultimate heritage adventure on an underground Tunnels Tour.
Equipped with a hardhat, headlamp and harness he’ll be locked into the ladder system before descending 20 metres into the depths below to explore the 1km labyrinth of tunnels underneath the prison. Guides lead the trek through dry sections of the tunnels by foot, before boarding replica convict punts to explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat.
All tours are available for direct bookings or purchased as a gift voucher. Or you can include all four tours on an All Tour Pass. Want to know more? For more information, please call Fremantle Prison or visit the website.
