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.
Wonderful experience, the food was incredible, staff friendly and atmosphere very pleasant and calm.
Will definitely be back and highly recommend.
Excellent service. I gave my name and we were taken straight to our table. No delays or looking in books to see who we were or where we were to sit. Attentive service continued throughout . Entree mushroom rissoles were very nice, but could have been served with something decorative . We had the shared slow cooked Lamb for main which was sensational and ordered salad and chips on the side. Perfect! The price was very reasonable given the quality of the meal. We had a lovely evening looking out over the oceon.
We had a table of four food quality excellent beautifully plated. Wait staff about 7/10 other times 10/10 would recommend Captain Moonlite wherever the address. Kevin
What a fabulous restaurant. Never disappoints Hope that we will be able to eat your delicious food again very soon.
We had heard great things prior but found that it just didn’t live up to expectations. The spectacular views were interrupted by cobwebs and blow flies. The food was a little underwhelming. The customer service was good but overall a costly lunch for an ordinary experience.
We took another couple with us for a birthday lunch. We shared the calamari, whole fish and the slow cooked lamb as well as a small salad and chips. That was plenty of food for 4. The bill wasn’t small but we were more than happy to pay for perfectly cooked food in a lovely setting.
We enjoyed it so much we are coming back with friends 4 days later, before it closes.
Shared plates and the calamari was terrific.
Would certainly recommend for special lunch or catch up with friends
I love this place. Informal dining with really good creative food. The view is to die for and it’s in glorious Anglesea. Best place in town.
Great food with a beautiful view to complement the experience.
Really delicious food and lovely service with friendly staff. Great location and should continue for a long time. Hope to be back
Love the food and atmosphere
Wonderful ... food excellent as usual. Excellent value for money
Amazing food and wait staff, hope to get the opportunity to come back again.
This was one of the best, if not the best seafood meal, we have had in Australia. We choose to share five entrees, accompanied by a delicious salad and the best chips ever!! The quality and presentation of the food was excellent - service was attentive, efficient and friendly. Unfortunately we did not have room for desert which looked/sounded great/interesting. We have booked to return before the closure for renovations at the Surf Club and hope Moonlite remain in the neighborhood.
Lovely view with delicious food & fast service (a bit too quick!)
The bugs and octopus was amazing !
The food was very nice, however was overpriced. Fish and chips for $30 and not even one lettuce leaf with it . Salad would have been nice. The berry ice cream was superb.
Thankyou for a wonderful evening.
The food was excellent and your staff provided us with outstanding service throughout the evening.
Our guests from London, who read about you in England prior to their arrival were so impressed.
We may even visit Hervie's partner Rebecca in St. Kilda on March 1st. for a skate!
Really loved thus place located in the Surf Rescue Club building.
Wonderful sea outlook. Fabulous fish. Great service. Lovely historic Club photos. Quite idiosyncratic but in a good way. Limited parking.
Wonderful food in a gorgeous location. Service was top notch too!
Absolutely loved the restaurant. Fabulous food with a second-to-none view. Well done, Gem!
Outstanding as always! Service was attentive and the food was delicious.
King George whiting was as good as it gets. Mussels were excellent
While the staff were friendly and the ambience nice we felt the food and presentation was poor. We had 2 entrees and then decided to leave based on the lack of quality. The mushroom fitters were quite tasty but served without garnish or any type of accompanying sauce. The zucchini fritters were simply tempura batter fried pieces of zucchini served without any garnish (details show you care) and accompanied by a lack lustre sauce.
Sorry Captain Moonlite but we feel a lot more attention to detail is required and less fried choices. The main courses we liked were only available as a serve for 2 people which is also very limiting. Anglesea really needs some good food choices, so please don't give up guys just keep improving and trying harder with more choices, attention to presentation and toss out the fryer ! or at least keep it on the back shelf - fresh is best !
All the best

Excellent service by all the staff .
Beef had some gristle.
Food was well presented and delicious
What a great pity you are closing .
We were really looking forward to this meal. We had traveled from Melbourne for our anniversary and I guess this has heightened our disappointment.
We were seat on time and our waiter asked if we wanted to start with some still or sparkling water. We asked for sparkling and waited, d waited, and waited. 45 minutes later he came back, after clearing most of the tables around us and finally asked if we wanted to order a drink, we still hadn't recieved our water at this stage, 45 mins in. We said we'd like to order since we had been waiting so long and ordered the white bait and octopus for starters and the $30 a serve fish and chips for main.
The starters were excellent. The white bait in particular, was exceptional.
An hour and forty minutes after ordering, we finally recieved our main. At $30, we were expecting something incredibly good, an unusual take on the dish, exceptional ingredients, SOMETHING???
The reality, was that it was huge in size but low on quality. Ok for a fish and chip shop, just. The fish was over battered and greasy and the chips were very dark and borderline burnt. It was not nice to eat.
We watched the waiter and floor staff float around chatting when tables were left with dirty dishes on them and we waited for our meal. The kitchen was full and there were a few free tables so definitely not at capacity.
We ordered the Black Berry cheesecake and the licorice and anzac biscuit icecream for dessert. These were both quite good.
The overall feeling was that the staff don't care and have better places to be. The whole fish and chips dish needs to be reconsidered. $30 is an unacceptable price to pay for chip shop quality in a hatted restaurant.
Every course was exceptional. The Lamb and the donuts in particular.
The restaurant has a most beautiful location and we enjoyed quality food and good service
Absolutely fantastic experience! Wish I could eat here every day!
Pleasant surroundings, good food and great service
Love it every time we go never disappointed.
We celebrated my daughters birthday and they made it very special for her. The food is always beyond delicious we can’t go past the lamb always mouthwatering
Our favourite on the coast!
Outstanding food and service not to mention the stunning ocean views.
Amazing fresh food with a beautiful vista. This is seasonal and fresh and yes leans towards the mediterreanean greek flavours but just good food.
Portions are small so be aware
The only downside is parking is horrific especially at the moment with the new surf club being built...allow an extra 20minutes to find a spot!
