“nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Located right on the river in the centre of Melbourne this restaurant has good service and good food. Its nice for lunch and dinner and we had both during our stay in Melbourne.
Take a stroll along the river in the evening after dinner.

“Great for whiling away the afternoon and then staying for dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Had a couple of hours to waste so we chose the waterfront and got a table right at the front on the deck. As people watchers it was great on a nice sunny afternoon sipping beers and wines with the occasional cocktail thrown in watching the crowds walk on by.

That couple of hours slid by really quickly so we asked for a dinner menu and much to our surprise found we were at a seafood restaurant (didn't read the name before we went in). Well my wife doesn't eat seafood which turned out to be interesting so we ordered for her the curried scallops. Well it was one of the best meals she has ever eaten, the quality of the curry was outstanding, she even ate a few scallops. I had the Lobster & salmon wellington which i thought was great until I tried the curry.

Few hours drinking and a couple mains came to under $200 which was very reasonable.

“good service not much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We had a meal recently at the waterfront restaurant,and found the prices to be over the top and even with the high prices charged for individual dishes you are then asked if you require side dishes,which is one of my pet hates as surely a dish should offer all that is required with out having to pay for extras.
I had a rib eye steak which was ordered as medium however it was presented rare,and this steak had a great amount of gristle running through it.
The service was excellent and the deserts though overpriced were amazing.
One other thing if you visit this restaurant, please request a table away from the kitchen as the guy ordering the meals sounded as though he was ordering through a fog horn.

“Seafood Sensation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

We enjoyed a pleasant meal on a hot day in the outdoor section with views over the river and the city. Our parents prefer plain food, while we like things a bit spicier and the restaurant was able to satisfy us all. The service was efficient and unobtrusive. Too slow and expensive for a quick lunch on a work day, but perfect for a longer relaxing lunch on a free/special/vacation day.
