Description: With impressive modern Australian dishes and a spectacular location on Half Moon Bay, near Black Rock, Cerberus Beach House turns the simple pleasure of fish and chips on the beach into something truly special. Good old-fashioned ‘real’ fish and chips are served in the downstairs kiosk while upstairs, patrons can enjoy a smarter, yet still relaxed, dining experience amidst cool blues and whites, warm timber tables and chairs, and breathtaking views of the bay. Built on the finest seasonal ingredients sourced locally wherever possible, Cerberus’ menu is a tantalising mix of modern Australian options and fresh seafood worthy of the magnificent setting.

We had lunch here and the the view and ambience of the restaurant are amazing - and the food was outstanding. It's quite a small restaurant and therefore I would strongly recommend you make a reservation and request a table by the window. The windows weren't open today as it was too hot and windy but that didn't deter from... More

Wow, for a local restaurant, Cerberus is a hidden treasure. Went there due to a friend recommendation that the steak is amazing and as we got there we couldn't believe our luck, the venue is not too big room with all windows to the big blue, you actually feel you are in it. Then all is left is to cross... More

Considering I was late with a table booking for four persons which changed to three including an overseas business guest we thoroughly enjoyed the very good food hospitality and the window seats as requested. Could not ask for a nicer luncheon venue and look forward to a return visit asap. Regards Greg Hewish Future Pack Australia

Stunning views and superb food- easy to pretend that you are not in a major city. Great in summer but just as good in winter as it is easier to get a table.

This little gem of a restaurant if found sitting above a popular fish and chip shop....by the quay, near the beach. Hence the super views, particularly in the evening. The menu is primarily fish of all kinds...oysters, Barramundi etc...but also offered quail and steaks. Presentation was modern Oz, cooking perfect. Some items seemed a little pricy....NZ Sav Blanc 'Darling' at... More

I've been here on a number of occasions over a few years, and have never had a bad experience. The service is always friendly, and usually efficient. The food is always very good, and there's a good variety of wines. And then, of course, there's the location. Melbourne doesn't have a great number of quality restaurants with views out over...

Great food in a small, intimate setting. Excellent service and views to die for! We love going here in the summer and watching the sun set.
