Group visit in February to Daveys restaurant inside the Daveys Hotel was memorable. The views were good, food was excellent, prices low and helpful staff.

We visited this hotel today for lunch and ordered items from the quite extensive seniors menu. The samosa and garlic bread entree was tasty and hot. The steaks and vegetables were well cooked to order with an interesting brie sauce. We were most impressed with the staffs' helpful and cheerful service and sat at a table with a very pleasant...

Overpriced for the view, overpriced for the quality stale bread on steak sandwich, Parma not fresh made, ham was disgusting, my son nearly gagged on the seafood risotto it was so dry and pricey never going back I'm sorry.

Disappointing, none the less we chose something else. The meal I ordered was not what I was expecting prosciutto wrapped chicken breast with creamy Brie sauce. Well the chicken was not... More

We hadn't been to Davey's for many years but I had a birthday email for a free meal and since our favourite local, family friendly restaurant (Dragon King) wasn't open on a Monday nor our favourite take-away (Baxter Fish and Chips), we decided to give it a try...big mistake, HUGE! About 8 other people in the bistro should have given... More

We went to dinner here one night because it is near the sea and we wanted to watch a dramatic storm roll in across the bay. It may have been a really off night, but I was brought the wrong dish, when I pointed it out to the annoyed waitress she looked even more annoyed so I said I would... More

So disappointed - waiting service was terrible, food terrible, bar service was a joke. The Manager appeared to be hiding in the kitchen, leaving inexperienced staff to deal with chaos. My steak was tough, meal was not as I requested. Partner's fish was tiny inside a large, very yellow batter. Gave up waiting at the bar for second drinks. We... More

After waiting some time at the "wait to be seated" sign someone finally ambled over after previously seeing us & looking away. Waitress then pounced to take our order but we hadn't even viewed the menu. Bad mistake. Then took 15 minutes for her to come back. The bar was no different, unattended for ages until someone noticed there were... More

The restuarant at Daveys has an la carte menu in modern Australian cuisine with Mediterranean influences and featuring flavoursome seafood and is moderately priced. The restaurant's wine list offers a wide range of local Mornington Peninsula wines. The 160-seat restaurant has tiered areas featuring exclusive booths surrounding the spacious and tranquil room. A large outdoor deck is popular for summer repasts, setting the scene for wonderful sun-soaked lunches and romantic evenings under a canopy of stars. It is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is open for dining all day Saturday & Sunday. Daylight fills the restaurant, providing a bright, contemporary ambiance for diners to fully appreciate the relaxing vista created by the closeness of Port Phillip Bay, the picturesque bridges and boats at the mouth of Kananook Creek.
