Ruim maar gezellig restaurant met goede kaart, gelegen aan Port Philip Bay

L'Agua Dromana is a spacious restaurant. Great for lunches and dinners. There is a wide range of dishes. The quality is excellent and the service friendly. You can also eat with small children as the restaurant has an indoor playground. Across the street you will find a cozy beach of Port Philip... read more

Hubby and I had the big breakfast. Really nice mushrooms, spinach etc. Serving size was very generous - I couldn't finish all my eggs!

The food was not up to standard and the prices were too high. I ordered chicken parmigiana and to pay over $20, I'd expect to be able to lick the plate. I couldn't finish it. My partner also had trouble eating his meal. We won't be going back.

My two favourite aspects of this are the kids play area and the fact that there are foods specifically marked for paleo diet followers as well as gluten free! The only con is that the play area needs to be cleaned more regularly (not the floor but the actual equipment!) and I'm not a fan of cooking my own food... More

I used to take a walk along the beachfront and then go to one of two cafes for a breakfast or latte and read the paper. The food i found to be well cooked and presented. The coffee was of good standard. The service mon to fri was friendly and efficient, the weekend staff were OK but thats all.

If you're going to have a pasta with a Napoletana sauce (spelt incorrectly in the menu by the way) at least make an effort to learn how to actually make the sauce!! No Italian sauce of any kind contains pieces of tomato from the salad bar nor does it have the acidity levels of acid from a car battery. Just... More

Staying in Dromana for the weekend we randomly selected our breakfast place on the first morning. We had amazing service and the food was of good quality. Being allergic to eggs I am limited in choices for a substantial breakfast and whilst I don't follow a Paleo diet this type of meal for breakfast suits my needs with the exception... More

I had heard and read nice reviews, so thought I would book it for my mum's 60th. Was quite disappointed. We ordered chicken parmigiana, which was overcooked and fries were undercooked. The kids calamari was sent back as it did not taste like fresh calamari, but rather frozen and processed. My daughter did not like it after her first bite... More
