Location and contact

Captain Moonlite is an eatery and bar all about delicious food, tasty wine and above all... good vibes. Housed within the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club (one of the Surf Coast's best kept secrets) Captain Moonlite is tucked into the cliff-edge overlooking the Anglesea surf beach and further afield toward Point Addis & Port Phillip Heads. Chef Matt Germanchis (Pei Modern, MoVida, Pandora's Box) and partner Gemma Gange (Pei Modern, Jacques Reymond, Stokehouse) lead the team in providing coastal European food in a relaxed & comfortable setting so you can sit back and enjoy one of the best views along the Great Ocean Road.

Both the food and service were excellent. In particular the entree (the duck and pistachio rillette), and desert (cheesecake with raspberries) were delicious. The main courses were memorable and the view, stunning. We’ll be back.
