Beautiful outlook, average coffee and slow service. A gorgeous little waterfront cafe with lots of charm and cakes that look delish, but the coffee is average (not bad, but not great) and the service is a bit slow, even though it wasn't busy. The view does equal out these little downsides though.

This restaurant gain an advantage of the place. It is located exactly by the Mornington Harbour. I think there are only 2-3 restaurants there. Therefore, visitors just pick one of them. Having said that, the food is not bad. It just not special. They have variety of choices, include pies. So, just pick some you like, eat it and leave... More

Tucked away in the parking lot near the pier is a little cafe with a good selection of meals for the hungry fisherman, swimmer or diver that frequent this area. Drop in for a coffee, cake or brunch to warm you in winter. Reasonable prices and broad menu make this an ideal place to visit in the cooler months. In... More

We stumbled upon this quaint little fish and chippery in Mornington and were glad that we decided to pop in for lunch. It's a cosy, unpretentious establishment which serves up some awesome fish and chips. The fish is fresh, well-battered, and the the chips are perfectly done - not too salty or soggy. Prices are very reasonable too. It was... More

Thought we would try the fish and chips at the pier which you would think would be fresh from the fishing fleet that pull up straight out front. When enquiring as to where the fish comes from , was told from the fyer!! , delving a little deeper was told that a delivery truck brings it , so be stung... More

We enjoyed the flathead fish & chips and salt & pepper squid, both with crisp salad. The best was the awesome view of the pier despite the 39 degree day. Staff were friendly and service good. Will come back when travel here again!

Blue sky and sun, a table on the deck overlooking the packed marina of cruisers, fishing trawlers, large and small boats and dinghies, watching the fishermen and divers take to the water and a plate of warm food and a hot coffee in front of us - it can't get much better! The location on Mornington Yacht Club pier is... More

Coming from the mountains, we always say the best place to get sea food is next to the ocean. Well this place isn't. It's not cheap, which is okay but only if it's good food. The calamari was mediocre, as was the flat head tails. The side salad was the worst example I've ever had, alongside the half cooked chips.... More
