A great selection for all from awesome seafood the flounder is amazing, great steaks the 400g rib eye is always my choice. You can even start of with sushi which is always fresh. It's a great setting and the staff have always been friendly and attentive, I... More

A couple of my friends from overseas came to Melbourne for a visit. I took them to the waterfront Restaurant for dinner because they love seafood. We ordered half of a lobster, which is $155, and other dishes. However the lobster is a very small size and the taste is ordinary. Honestly we can get this full size of lobster... More

Went with a group of 15 people. Waiters were spot on just like the food. Little bit pricey, that's what you expect in Melbourne but well worth it.

Our oyster tasting platter ($35) was a clever choice for starters. Beautiful! My son had the fish and chips ($36) and he couldn't finish it as it was a very generous serving. My steamed barramundi ($39) was Asian in taste, and I wanted to drink all those amazing juices left in my bowl at the end ... but I'm a... More

Fresh fish for entree special the whiting had too many bones. Main salmon nice but not wow lacked flavour and Moreton Bay Big risotto had a dry bug without a shell on it but the odd bug in the risotto was nice and tender. Waitress lovely but wine over priced as well. What we thought was a romantic table was... More

We visited for lunch after a concert & enjoyed our $39 lunch special meal of fried sardines followed by perfectly cooked hapuka. We drank wine by the glass & weren't thrilled with our selections or the cost of each. Our waiter was unctuous & didn't listen, so we needed to repeat our orders. I suspect we were unlucky with our... More

Wonderful restaurant on the river with deliciously prepared food served by good, attentive, polite staff. Service as it should be. Went twice during our 4 day visit to Melbourne.

Have been here several times and it does not disappoint. Kids menu available and the battered snapper on this menu is devine if you are lucky enough to prize some away from your little ones plate. Tempura prawns and soft shell crab is amazing as is the Paella shared dish. Staff are attentive and service is fantastic. If you love... More
