Cerberus in half moon bay has been a favorite of mine since I moved to the area 6 years ago, great food, nice views towards Melbourne over the water, easy parking and easy to get in, it's quite a hidden gem and until this week could not fault it. I probably never wrote a review before as I would hate... More

I visited this restaurant with my family for lunch on 25th March. We ordered two dishes, roasted quail and scallop. Both dishes had good performance and taste good, especially the quail, but we were shocked by the small amount, the quail was so small, and the thinnest slice of scallop was just cover on the top, at the bottom were...

Thank you for your feedback. We work hard to ensure the value of our menu and keep it reasonably priced, so are a little disappointed to read that you felt differently. Hopefully we can entice you back to try our winter menu and mid-week lunch specials. More

We just love this place. It has a fantastic view of the HMS Cerberus. HMS Cerberus was an old ship built in 1870, and deployed in 1871. After a very long career from 1871 till (approximately) 1923, it was sunk in Half Moon Bay, right in front of the restaurant with the same name, to serve as a marine sanctuary.... More
