It was dinner mid week and we had a window table overlooking the bay. Even at night, the view is wonderful.they do have a specials board but depending where you sit it's very hard to read, however the waitress did run through them. We were all satisfied with our meal however I would prefer not to have my fish on... More

We had a lovely celebratory dinner for mine and my husbands dinner. The menu is delicious (heavily weighted to seafood) and the staff were knowledgeable and attentive without being overwhelming. There are very few waterfront restaurants on Port Philip Bay. This one is a winner!

Went to Cerberus for lunch today. I had the Pork Belly special, delicious and my friend had the fish (flake) and chips, also delicious. Great service and attention to detail.

The view of the bay was great from the upstairs restaurant. Food and service was great, possibly could have had a couple more dishes to choose from for non seafood guests. My hubby loved the seafood choices and choose Moreton Bay Bugs and I had the duck leg, both meals were lovely. We will definitely return.

Beautiful spot, but frozen chips straight from Coles and pretty ordinary fish, spoilt what should have been a great way to end a day. An off day or massively overrated?? Hugely disappointed.

Hi Simmy - unfortunately our suppliers failed to deliver on the Sunday, which combined with the sunny weekend meant we ran out and either had to close the kiosk or source what we could locally. We apologise and agree it wasn't up to our usual standard, and would like to welcome you back with a return voucher to ensure you... More

I had a birthday dinner here last night. Service was amazing as was the food. Youngest son chose from the fixed price offer...pork belly followed by lamb sliders, eldest son and Mrs went for fish and chips, whilst I went for the barramundi. We all loved our meals. We will so be back..thanks

Stunning views. Awesome fresh food. Great wine. Accomodating service. This is our goto place for something a little bit special and would totally recommend it.

First visit to the upstairs restaurant at Cerberus Beach House, Black Rock, (Melbourne Australia) in June when I met a close friend for lunch. We both love restaurants near the sea, rare to find for some strange reason in Victoria, and this one is an oldie but goodie. With the look and feel of a real beach shack, and located... More

In the 6 years that I have been in Melbourne, I have to say that these are the best Fish and Chips I have had. They are freshly cooked and the fish is divine, add some malt vinegar and the fact that you are right by the beach and it was heavenly.
