Description: Alexanders Williamstown is located on the ever popular Nelson Place in Williamstown. The stunning heritage listed building (Formally the bank of Australasia) was constructed in 1876 with stunning high ceilings, original fireplaces and its gorgeous bank vault in tact which we use for private dining. Alexanders Williamstown offers a delicious selection of both Modern Australian and Asian fusion dishes and of course local, delectable and fresh seafood options including beautiful and ever popular "Seafood platter for two" for you to enjoy. All Dips, bread and desserts are made on site and are fresh, full of flavour ready to enjoy. Alexanders Williamstown is also specialized in functions and large group bookings for that special occasion.

Alexander's is set in an old bank building, complete with vault in tact. Recently renovated the decor is modern with a private outdoor terrace and street fronting tables for good weather and city views.

The cuisine is predominantly Mediterranean with a decent selection of starters, mains, salads and kids options. We ate the tiger prawns in chilli and lime, along with a soft shell crab taco and a calamari salad. The meals we're simple, fresh, tasty and well priced.

The only beer on tap is carlton draught which I'd like to see added to in the future.

Overall, I was impressed with the current offering here; as its only a couple of months old the management will no doubt continue to evolve their concept.

We had such a lovely evening at Alexander's. It was a really HOT night and I had booked a table outside in the courtyard and wasnt sure if it would be too hot, When I called to say we may need a table inside I was informed that they had already reserved us a table inside as well as outside "just in case" we preferred inside out of the heat - wow!. I had a good feeling about this place already! When we got there the place was packed and buzzing it was cooler inside but quite noisy so we opted to sit outside in the courtyard as we were catching up with friends and wanted a more quiet intimate setting. The menu is amazing and I could seriously have ordered any dish on there, just the right amount of choice - and they all sounded delicious - and were!. Food was so fresh and beautifully presented and cooked, couldnt fault. We had the divine tasting plate for 2 to start with and the lamb rump was so yum and cooked to perfection. My husband had the Beer Battered Barra, presentation was fantastic with a small "deep fry basket" housing the homemade chips - cute! He said it was awesome but wished he had chosen the lamb rump because mine looked soooo good. Service was attentive and professional - LOVE this place.
