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.

This place is everything that everyone in all the others have praised it for and then probably more. I defy you to find a place with a better coastal view, its in the bayside car park, looking at the red cliff faces, the water, the cerberus, the pier, and newport in the distance accross the water, and city views accross...

After four years living in Black Rock we thought it was high time we paid a visit to the Cerberus Beach House. It has always been well known for its take away first class fish and chips beach café (which we still haven't tried!) and the fact that you cannot just walk upstairs to the restaurant any time of the...

We arrived at 7pm, pleased to have a nice table for 2 by the window. However, children at the next table playing noisy electronic games made us ask to be moved to another table. Our waiter was most understanding and helpful and moved us elsewhere with no fuss. After all, the restaurant is advertised as a family restaurant rather than... More

A fabulous little restaurant with amazing views, friendly efficient service and yummy food! This restaurant would have million dollar views during the day. We will definitely be back to check it out.

A great little restaurant on the bay with fantastic views and sunny aspect. The beef Wellington was excellent as was the soufflé. The service was friendly. Highly recommend especially for a Sunday lunch.

We were staying with our son at nearby Sandringham. Cerberus was just a 15 minute stroll along the Bayside. We saved it for our last night together and wish we had gone there earlier in the trip so that we could have repeated the experience. Great location overlooking the bay with a real seaside atmosphere in the whole building. We... More

I had boasted to my family how good this restaurant was, but on this occasion it was very disappointing. Two of the steak dinners were very rare and certainly not what was ordered. I must say though, the manager offered a refund and apology for one of them. Time was getting on so there was not enough time to reorder... More
