Great food, well prepared. Excellent, prompt accommodating service provided with a smile.

View of the harbour and bay from the restaurant was stunning at sunset, especially on a cold and windy night.

On a warm sunny day Harbourview was perfect for an anniversary celebration for two. Service was exceptional and with great seafood. The Japanese pancake was a mistake.

There were six of us at the table the service was very good. At first glance the meals did look quite expensive but the portions were such that we really didn't need more than the main. The quality of the food was very good. I would have liked to have seen a slightly bigger range of mains but that may be just me. I would definitely go back and happily recommend it to others.

I think that your restaurant is one of the greats of Eastern Australia.
Your Soft shell crab is a dish that I thought was available on the Eastern side of the united States

Been on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. Food is excellent with a good variety of choice. Can also have a very reasonably priced two or three course meal with a glass of wine ($40 and $50 respectively) with a couple of choices for each course. The staff are very friendly and efficient and provide the right level of service.

Friendly reception and seating. Unrushed order taking and good advice. Exceptional entrees and really good main courses. Did not take sweets but good coffee. Overall service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Really nice environment and ambiance. We had a very enjoyable 40th wedding anniversary lunch and the total bill was good value for money We will go there again

Enjoyed the meal, however we were given a $300 gift card, the meal was less than this. When we paid we were told that they did not refund or hold over $ for another visit. I am not sure this is legal and need to follow up. Spoilt our night as we felt totally ripped off.

First time dining there - the service was exceptional, friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The food was delicious and generously portioned. The view is unparalleled - out over the bay watching sunset. Thoroughly recommend!

The dining experience is excellent value with generous servings. Great location with ocean views. Staff lack personality and professionalism as most of them were in their early twenties and clearly lack inter-personal skills. Parking was also a major issue and limited on the weekend which makes it difficult for older people. Overall though, the dining experience is of a consistently high standard and a standout favourite!

We came for dinner Saturday evening bring two close friends from Sydney. The evening could NOT have been lovelier. The staff are exceptionally warm and professional and we were also able to witness the sun sitting into the bay. A first for both of our friends and they are in their 70s!! So an evening that is not likely to be ever forgotten.

Staff are superb:friendly, accomodating, giving us the space when we discussed business. Nina especially showed great initiative, recommended some lovely menu itesm. When some inconsiderate diner's kids were running around & noisy, she took initiative to politely lead them to play at the deck area.
Swordfish - too much sauce; a colleagues loved that, I did not because I thought it distracted from the beautifully done fish. Especially love the list of beers.
GORGEOUS views of Port Philip

I took some interstate friends to Harbour View for dinner. The food & wine were delicious, service was excellent, and the venue has a fabulous outlook and is quite relaxed. My friends were very impressed and look forward to returning next time they’re in town.

The Harbour View Restaurant offers a fine dining experience in a relaxed but elegant setting. There are an interesting array of dishes on the menu accompanied by a great selection of wines and cocktails. The view from the deck and from within the restaurant itself provides a magnificent backdrop for any occasion
