We visited Proudfoots for lunch with Melbourne visitors, because we had visited in a number of occasions and it was a p,easing place for a meal. It was holiday time and very busy, so more staff need to be employed to cope, as the service was poor. The meal, when we eventually received it was very average, with one meal... More

We rang all around town to find somewhere that offered a fresh seafood platter. Finally Proudfoots could make it happen! They brought the seafood in fresh for our request!! The food was delicious and the view was beautiful. Service was also very attentive and friendly. Would go there again tomorrow!

What an amazing sight to dine too! Our group had a fabulous lunch and service was fantastic! Each serving was huge and delicious. We wanted to order something that was unavailable at the time (fresh fish) as it wasn't delivered on time, we went with something else... but to our surprise the lovely chef hand delivers to our table a...

Stopped by on our trip down the Great Ocean Road. Firstly the view is incredible, overlooking a gorgeous lake ...on a sunny day it's absolute perfection. We are vegetarian so were pleasantly surprised to see lots of options on the menu. Portions are huge so you are really getting value for money. Highly recommend the veg risotto- delicious. The ice...

The female waiting staff were very friendly and helpful, however, the older male waiter was not. He was gruff and not terribly friendly which was disappointing. The food and view was lovely.

Steve had the beautiful fresh ling and I chose the lamb back strap. Both were delicious, just the right size and washed down with a lovely Louis Bouillot bubbly. We love... More
