Not sure if the maître d' was having a bad day but I would have expected more from the person greeting you at the front door. The girls were more accommodating to serve you. Location was great, views were amazing food was okay too.

Here on a pleasant Saturday night for dinner with friends. The maitre-d is quite formal for the situation. But service was fine. The wine list offered a reasonable selection, can recommend the Snob Hill wines. I enjoyed my entree of soft shell crab panzanella. The apple and mint granita with oyster did not seem to work. I had a meat... More

Love this restaurant and was not disappointed last night. The cob bread is a real treat. The menu has great choices and the service great. We booked at the last minute so tables with a view already booked. This was not a problem as the large wall mirrors allows everyone to see the view

This used to be one of my favourite place in Melbourne. I've been going there regularly, organised my company Christmas functions on a couple of occasion, birthday or anniversary dinners. I don't know if management changed, but today's experience was just shocking. First the food: my trevally ceviche. Fish was hard and chewy. Then rack of lamb. A special, I... More

Hidden away on the beach at Black Rock Yachting Club. Had lunch last Friday. Warm bread loaf with oil two ways and herb butter was a great starter. Fresh seafood followed (fish and chips and seafood marinara. Great meals but the view down the bay looking toward the city makes this special. An outdoor area would be a great place... More

Came across this gem by accident and what a find. Homemade bread and dips mouth watering. Crab and scallops were so fresh and added ingredients such as orange segments and tasty green peas complimented them perfectly. View was amazing ....

my partner and I went to Cerberus Beach House for a birthday dinner and were delighted by the standard of the food and service. We chose the seafood platter and then the dessert platter, both of which were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I don't usually like oysters or mussels, but these were delicious! We requested a window table which... More
