High tides + good vibes

Captain Moonlite is an eatery and bar all about delicious food, tasty wine and above all… good vibes.

Housed within the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club (one of the Surf Coast’s best kept secrets) Captain Moonlite is tucked into the cliff-edge overlooking the Anglesea surf beach and further afield toward Point Addis & Port Phillip Heads.

Chef Matt Germanchis (Pei Modern, MoVida, Pandora’s Box) and partner Gemma Gange (Pei Modern, Jacques Reymond, Stokehouse) lead the team in providing coastal European food in a relaxed & comfortable setting so you can sit back and enjoy one of the best views along the Great Ocean Road.

As a fellow diner Melanie mentioned, every bite was just amazing. We’d have to agree, no disappointments on the 3rd or even 5th bite.

Following a couple of failed attempts from me I finally got to dine at Captain Moonlite. We had a great evening that was relaxed, high quality and just what we needed following a rather trying day. The staff were professional and also knowledgeable. Our entrees of Kingfish and Mushroom /Cheese Croquettes hit the spot in a good way. Our mains were also excellent sticking to to the principal of good quality ingredients cooked simply and well. A couple of glasses of wine each had us very content. Happy to highly recommend if you are anywhere in the area- hard to beat....

We keep coming back. This time it was the cheeky grilled octopus, potato cake and vinegar. A blast to the past "fish and chips by the beachside"- he nailed the flavours. I recommend trying lots of entrees to share and share your main - its the best way of trying as many of the flavours as possible. The sashimi is always a must, the vinaigrette for the oyster is excellent.

The food is amazing, the staff are wonderful and the views are to die for. Must haves - the octopus, the lamb, the John Dory (but honestly everything is delicious). It is much more casual than your usual city restaurant which fits in well with the location and makes it a much more comfortable experience. Definitely my favourite restaurant and will be going back!

Love this restaurant. Beautiful food, great service, lovely, casual beach ambiance. Suggest you book as very popular. Parking is a problem over busy periods e.g the summer, school holidays.

Sometimes when you hear good things about a restaurant and get to visit long after the revues they may not live up to the applause. Captain Moonlite did not disappoint, it exceeded expectations. There is a fresh, modern approach to it's largely Greek influenced menu. The flavour combinations, the plating... fantastic making the sharing of many of the dishes very hard to do. I would thoroughly recommend booking a date with the Captain.

we are semi locals and love this eatery in Anglesea. We nearly always go back to back with dinner and then breakfast the next morning. It's a warm and inviting welcome each time we arrive and the food is just delicious. Don't tell anyone our secret though as it's getting more and more difficult to book. Yum Yum Yum

We came for Father's Day and it was such a delight. My family and I enjoyed the delicious food and ambiance. The whole restaurant itself is warm and welcoming and the service was impeccable. Staff were so attentive and even though there was not a vegetarian meal on the menu, we just asked the staff and the chef provided our daughter with a delicious vegetarian meal. Everyone was satisfied and we will definately be back again to enjoy the delicious dishes. Thank you.

We had a wonderful meal and the table service and food as excellent. As were the views. It was really disappointing as we were paying at the front counter to hear the chef swearing loudly at his table staff who had been excellent. It did spoil somewhat the overall experience as no one deserves to be spoken to in such a manner!
