Seafood
Our menu takes inspiration from the Mediterranean and was developed to showcase simple, fresh and seasonal produce. We also specialise in authentic Italian wood fired pizza's.

Located right on Port Phillip Bay in historical Williamstown, a seafood focus was the most natural choice using, only the freshest, highest quality and most diverse selection of sustainable seafood available.

Our restaurant enjoys one of Melbourne’s most breathtaking settings, with stunning city views across Port Phillip Bay from the west.

You can expect exciting food and wine pairings thanks to our resident sommelier and with over 180 different drops available, there is something to please everyone.

Extremely overpriced for what you get! I ordered the special which was tortellini and it tasted like it was store bought with a few peas. Cocktails were average, nothing exciting about them. The oysters weren’t fresh (although the raspberry vinaigrette was a nice touch). The service was poor as we waited a while for our menus to even be delivered after we’d been seated. All starters range from $27-37 which I personally think is overpriced for the quality and quantity of food provided. A $140 dinner- not worth it.

I’m not giving a bad review however I think if a cocktail is advertised on the menu you should have all of the ingredients! Or just take it off the menu. Beautiful restaurant and setting though.

The view is fantastic. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the restaurant. Too expensive and an unpleasant atmosphere.

Lovely restaurant and good food but at the upper end of the price range and the food isn’t quite at the level of the pricing.

The food, service and location was great. Knowledge from Waiters on specials and how they are cooked and presented was terrific.
My only bad comment was the fact that we needed some time between the entrée and main course to digest the food, which was too short. For example we had only just finished the entrée when the mains arrived. If they can get a good balance on this issue we would be back again.

Lovely venue and amazing service. Seafood doesn’t need to be complicated. Simple flavours that emphasize texture and taste are enough. The prices don’t match the food.

A beautiful setting but unfortunately the service does not match the setting or price of the food. No follow up drink order asked, plates taken away very quickly and no thank you upon paying the check and departing. This restaurant has so much potential. Just needs a polish of the edges to match the cost of food.

Fish was well cooked and delicious but scallops a bit overdone
lamb rack dishes eaten by others in the group were delicious but seems
A bit overpriced and not great value for money

Service was slow, food was average at best. Ambience was good, noise level reasonable. Expensive food, your paying for the view, as mentioned the food quality was passable.

Very over priced for what you get, went with a friend and we wanted to order multiple entrees and share them, the waiter told us we had to order mains as that’s what you do at a restaurant, little confused with this, not sure why we need to be told what we have to order! with drinks and the entrees we still spent $200 on a very ordinary lunch, will not be back.

Nice atmosphere but my steak was cooked under rare instead of the medium I requested
The pizza was nice but our entree of calamari had the smallest rings I have ever encountered and they were also chewy
The classic fish and chips was also not very good
The waiter had very bad breath and after waiting for 30 min to have our table cleared so we could order desert we gave up and left
Not a very good experience for the price unfortunately
