Pier Farm has amazing views, attentive service and a reliable menu. We had oysters, duck confit, the fillet of whiting and broccoli & potatoes. It has recently been remodelled with a luscious looking bar.

The food itself was very nice, great location and service. Food was probably a bit overpriced for the serving size. I would have liked some cheaper options on the wine menu as well

Our visit was a long time in coming as we had been keen to visit this restaurant for a number of years, including back in its previous 'Anchorage' incarnation. Our wait was certainly worth it as Pier Farm was an excellent experience all round. Location, food & service all excellent. Little bit of a mix-up with the bill but hardly a concern. We went for Sunday lunch, I can imagine it being a fair bit noisier with a full-house, but all-in-all, no hesitation to recommend Pier Farm.

We had a lovely lunch.

Menu variety excellent, good wine list, friendly staff.

Located on the Strand, perfect for a relaxed meal by the water.

A fantastic location on the Strand looking out over the bay. A varied menu with well presented and well cooked fine. A very good wine list and excellent service. Deserves to do very well. We'll definitely be back!

Having moved to Williamstown just four months ago, I really wanted to try Pier Farm as its walking distance to home. Having seen the menu and read some reviews, we invited a couple of pescatarian friends and booked a couple of weeks ahead as we’d noticed that trying to book the day before for either Friday or Saturday was impossible. All good signs. Strangely the Saturday night we chose it was almost empty. But the staff were very attentive and the menu was a great selection for all. Ambience was a bit lacking but otherwise a great little restaurant. And the Port of MELBOURNE views are great. Would go again definitely.

Very expensive for what it was. Service was a little scattered. Forgot to bring us our wine. Although I tipped which should have only gone to our main waiter. Beautiful view.

Location was amazing, service good, 4 great meals, and possibly the worst rib eye steak I have ever eaten. It was cold, charred, unevenly cooked. We would definitely go back but Rib Eye would not be ordered!

Glad to see so many people enjoying the fabulous ambience of the outdoor dining area. Makes the most of a beautiful day when you can’t dine here and be outside by the water. That experience itself, in Melbourne, is a luxury. Pier Farm ticks all the boxes.

Food was good as always, the service (especially George) fantastic. The only recommendation would be to turn the music down a couple of notches.
Thanks for a great day.

We had a delightful meal watching the sunset over the water. The (complimentary) fresh bread as a starter was delicious and the staff were attentive with extra customer service. The food was tastefully presented and well prepared. Would definitely like to visit again.

Attended for my Husbands Big birthday - Service was amazing and we had a wonderful time. i asked for a certain area to be seated as had family over from New Zealand and I wanted them to see the city Light, and it wasn't an issue.
The Meal was lovely.
We all had a wonderful night, especially my husband.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will defiantly be back.
Thank You for a wonderful night.

Seriously good cooking,having worked at a few high end restaurants over my 20 plus years in hospitality I try to go into a venue/establiment without preconceived expectations.
This is truly a hidden gem!! Unfortunately the floor service wasnt as good a representation of the venue of the location and food.our friendly and lovely Chinese waiter stumbled over specials and explanations of dishes but it didn't matter in the end as I ordered the Harpooka for my wife and squid ink ravioli filled with a genourous serve of crab for mains and neither disappointed,in fact nothing was even close to disappointing it was fresh produce used with respect and honesty.
Would I go back???? You bet I would,everyday if I could afford it
Well done and thank you
