We were married at The Anchorage (Pier Farm) 25 years ago so celebrated our anniversary by going back to the venue.
Everything was just as good...good food, good service and of course, great venue!

Service was great (efficient, knowledgable) but sadly wasn't wowed by the food. Didn't get off to a great start with flat prosecco that wasn't chilled but this was readily replaced. Also disappointing that I had requested a "romantic" table but was seated in the middle of the restaurant even though practically all of the window seats available with most choosing to dine al fresco (admittedly I chose not to dine al fresco but any of the window seats would have been more intimate). Couldn't taste any truffle in the truffle pasta (though the pasta was good) and I counted exactly two sprigs of sage in the sage sauce. Overall quite a bland dish. Likewise my grissini crumbed veal cotoletta which was soggy. For dessert I ordered the panna cotta with strawberries and black pepper meringue because I LOVE that combination of flavour but again no pepper taste which was VERY disappointing and the three or four gumdrop sized meringues were chewy. My husband's blood orange granita with zabaione mousse was very nice though (wished I'd ordered that) and he enjoyed his entrée of prosciutto and melon and his snapper special main. On the plus side the servings were generous but this is neither here nor there if you are not actually enjoying what you are eating.

We enjoyed a relaxing evening meal in beautiful surroundings. The food was excellent and the service very friendly. We were not rushed but also did not have long waits between courses. All in all a wonderful experience.

The setting is amazing - we sat on the deck and watched the sunset over the port of Melbourne & city on a warm summer's night.
The food was creative and very tasty but the meals were a little small for the price point.
The staff were very professional and polite and service was prompt.
This was a favourite dining experience for us many years ago prior to the new ownership, so it was nice to see that the deco had been updated.

I was not impressed as the crumbed veal was way to oily and not cooked ,very disappointed and the prices of the meals were excessive , on a good note the views and setting were great and our waiter was very nice and good at his job, overall I would not revisit until things changed

Although the food was quite good, I was expecting higher quality because of other reviews I'd read .We were seated outside on the deck which was nice and there just happened to be some fireworks going off.
The service was friendly enough apart from few small things that the waiter didn't do until we asked again.It seemed because there were only 2 of us that the large table next to us was taking up a lot of his time.
For our main ,I had the Snapper special and my husband had the John Dory.The John dory would have been a lot nicer if it had been pan fried before being thrown in with the pippis and tomatoes. Both dishes were acceptable but not particularly special.
For entree, we shared the oysters at a very expensive 54.00 dollars per dozen and the grilled scallops with parmesan and herbs sprinkled over the top.Each scallop was $6.00.That would have been fine if more had gone into the making of them.They were though, good enough.
The bottle of french chablis we had was really enjoyable and we decided to have some sparkling Rose to finish off.The size of the glass of Rose was laughable.It was more like a shot glass.
I'm not saying I will not go back ever, but I think it is just a little too pricey for what it is .

A most enjoyable experience, the atmosphere was great, the food magnificent and the price was good.
A little more room around the tables for staff to move would be an improvement.

As a frequent diner (until recently, because of distance) we were looking forward to returning.

The entrees (scallops) were fine, but the main was extremely disappointing. We both had the King George whiting which was heavily battered and the chips were dry and tasteless and looked AND tasted as if they had been reheated several times.

The dessert (which we shared) was terrific and the service and our young waitress was excellent.

I ordered the garfish which came laden with spinach and was so full of bonesI couldn’t eat it. The oysters were good but overall an over priced, not very tasty experience.

Wonderful time overall, family members met here for dinner, wow it has certainly changed from The Anchorage. Menu was explained in great detail, we had the anchovies (what a treat) and oysters for entree. The presentation and the dishes that we chose, connected the dots, as it high lighted the produce in the best possible way. The fish dishes were superb, especially the Garfish. Ideal location, city views are simply stunning. Sadly, Williamstown was lacking a Restaurant of this type. Well done to everyone. My friends and family will return as soon as possible
