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.

A hidden gem bayside

Located on the water within Half Moon Bay the Cerberus Beach House was an easy choice for a recent birthday dinner with family. We had an early sitting to cater for the young ones and the atmosphere was spot on. I had previously been there without kids at a later time-slot and it was a good... read more

We have been to Cerberus a number of times as it fits in well with visits to our son and family in Sandringham. We love the fresh fish and seafood, the sea breezes and the outlook over the bay. On this recent occasion we actually booked so we could sit near the window and although we arrived almost an hour... More

My husband and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary by going to the Cerberus Beach House for lunch. The seafood platter was amazing as was the soufflé we had for dessert. The staff were attentive and friendly without being overbearing and the atmosphere was sophisticated yet relaxed. Would definitely recommend!

The food was fabulous, with such a creative flair on so many dishes, loved it! The service is always terrific, with attentive and friendly staff and of coarse the setting with the bay view, was sensational as we watched the sun set over half moon bay. Thank you for another memorable experience at Cerberus.
