This is a funky little modern restaurant with a cool relaxing vibe. Attention to detail here is obvious. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is awesome. They are set right on the jetty and on summer days the little outside deck is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the sea breezes. It's really only slightly more... More

My family and I called into Port Albert not expecting too much, but we had lunch at Wildfish and it was great. The seafood spaghetti was fantastic I would go back again just for that. The service and views were perfect. Price wise it was standard restaurant prices.

The Wildfish restaurant being right on the wharf appealed to us.On entering,we were greeted by a cheerful,friendly waitress,who gave us a window... More

We stopped here recently for lunch with another couple. The service was excellent and our waitress was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant itself was well set out with beautiful views of the water. There was plenty of choices on the lunch menu with two of us having the calamari, one having the pasta and one having the burger. Overall the... More

I had a spaghetti marina, which was drenched in butter. I found this really off putting, overpowering and cloying. Not sure why they wouldn't use white wine/olive oil/tomato for the sauce base. My husband had the flounder which was ok. It's a very pretty setting and I am sure other meals might have been nicer. The service was friendly. Would... More

We had a very good lunch here - calamari and chicken burger. Nice view, good service. They supposedly close at 2, but were happy to accommodate us at 2:25.

Description
Making its home in the picturesque little fishing village of Port Albert, 'Wildfish' is South Gippsland's premier waterfront restaurant. With a simple philosophy of producing the freshest local seafood caught by local fishermen 'Wildfish' is much welcomed in the food and wine circles of Gippsland. Occupying the site of the old fishermen's co-op, diners are likely to see the fresh seafood on the menu being unloaded from the fishing boats on the wharf at the front of the restaurant. Port Albert is such a special place, with rich maritime history, beautiful natural scenery and surrounded by some of the countries best National Parks. A picturesque two and a half hour drive from Melbourne and you're already relaxed.
