Nice way to host an 85th birthday

She and I visited Finz for a family occasion and were not disappointed in the slightest. This was for a long mid-week lunch, with very few diners in the downstairs ground floor zone, served by the same ground floor kitchen as the more well presented upstairs dining area, which has an identical... read more

Ive been here twice, first time with my Japanese family second time with other couples. and the view is great provided you wear sunglasses as the sun sets right in front of you. Service is lacking, the quantity of food is not questionable but the quality is, Nothing really dazzling about this place, its very average, poorly cooked seafood. I... More

We went with another couple to celebrate our wedding anniversaries, which were a week apart - we arrived at 7:30. The setting is lovely, especially when they opened the blinds and we watched the sun set. One of our party decided on two starters, while the rest of us opted for main courses only. The first of the starters arrived... More

Overpriced boring menu. Nice staff let down by very ordinary cooking. Paella rice gluggy, tasteless but seafood was fresh and well cooked

As other reviewers said this restaurant is in Sandringham, not Melbourne itself. We checked TripAdvisor before going in and entered based on the good reviews - only to be very disappointed I am afraid. Note that this is the upstairs restaurant. We had Oyster natural for the starter, which were very good. The service left us wanting, e.g., the bread... More

Wonderful fresh seafood and excellent staff. This year we had to eat at the cafe level as 92 y.o. mum not up to climbing stairs to upper level. The food was just as good and we had another wonderful time. We ordered the hot and cold seafood platter and the BBQ seafood platter and enjoyed every bite. The prices are... More

I took my partner here tonight and we were immediately welcomed and promptly taken to our table. Our waiter, Aaron, was very professional and polite and really made us feel welcomed and at ease. We ordered the Garlic Prawns and the Surf and turf (this one being from the evenings specials menu), with a side serving of herbed vegetables. The... More

This was my third visit to Finz upstairs seafood restaurant in Sandringham and it just keeps getting better. The staff are friendly and accommodating, highly professional - nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant itself has a light, bright airy atmosphere, formal without being pompous and stuffy. The view is lovely. My friend and I decided to start by sharing... More

This restuarants food in unbelievable. We went there with the expectation that it would probably be ordinary. How wrong were we... The food was beautiful. The prawns were fresh and so were the scallops. Although it was not busy the atmosphere was nice. The waiter could not of been more accomodating to us. Very good service and price. We are... More
