Even on a blustery cold wet day Pier Farm has a great ambience. Not to mention the consistently friendly service, delicious food and wine. A gem in Williamstown. Great for seafood lovers.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here with the three of us all happy with our meals. The wine was reasonably priced with no huge mark up and the dessert was yummy - one of us ordered the Affogato and it was so good we ordered a second. The wait staff - Pak and George on this occasion - were fantastic. So professional and friendly that they made us feel special. Oops. Forgot chef. Thank you all.

We had a friend with us who is on the FODMAP diet. Chef and server knew what she could eat and had prepared a number of options 5 stars in my book for being prepared and open to her needs. THANK YOU 🙂

Lovely setting and beautiful looking restaurant. The staff were very attentive and polite. The level of expectation for the food created by the lovely restaurant and great staff unfortunately did not match.

I found the food to be not as refined as expected. I had the Tune Carparcio, which was cut far to thickly and not seasoned at all. I then had the 'special' of baby snapper and again, not as refined as expected. The picture created in my mind by the explanation of the waiter was nothing like what appeared on the plate with large piles of lettuce and a slapped on tomato accompaniment.

My friend an I were overcharged $60. This has been refunded to my friends credit card, only after she checked the docket when she arrived home. Her meal of lamb shanks were a bit tough. My snapper was very nice.

Want to be kind . Most food ok to good . Nice antipasto, would love more veges on it as well. Great Special dessert. Special mains were best. 1 bad dish spoiled things a bit. Server attentive, background music sophisticated, nice view. Visited on a quiet night so might not be typical.

A gorgeous restaurant with a fabulous view of the Melbourne skyline. The service was exceptional as was the food. I had the special king prawn risotto and it was without doubt the best meal I’ve had in a long time. Awesome!

Restaurant is very impressive when you walk in. Food is average and over priced. Had tortellini dish, they were cold and my husband had seafood pasta, hardly any seafood in dish, calamari were like rubber bands and small portion at main meal price. Very disappointed

Good service and ok quality food. Great location, however it is way overpriced for the quality of food you are getting. We paid $180 for a small portioned two course meal and no alcohol. You are pushing into the territory of some of Melbourne top restaurants at these prices and the food just doesn’t stack up. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant on that basis.

Thought the food was great, we couldn’t fault anything we had. Service was also good, lovely staff. Friendly and attentive. We have been there a few times as The Anchorage and think it lives up to that standard. Would definitely go back and take friends there.

We revisited as part of the Food and Wine festival and so happy we chose this venue. The two course option with a glass of wine was excellent. Both our entree and mains were delicious, we were quite impressed as we had expected small servings. We will definately be returning.

The disappointment was being seated in a near empty restaurant really close to a table of two whom insisted on talking loudly about very personal subjects on their mobile/s. It really killed the lunch for us.
Should have moved us to the middle of the restaurant. Food was very good, service excellent.

Yes - recommended for the food, service and ambiance - location.
No - not so good for serving size and pricing.
We dine out a lot and I suggest that the food was good quality but was lacking in quantity. Kids fish and chips was $20, sides for mains were way over priced - $11 for a very small bowl of packet chips, $12 for fried sweet potato chips and $12 for a small garden salad. All of the sides were tiny. We also had steaks ($44.50 to $49 each -steak only no sides), fish of the day was a grilled stuffed Whiting for $48. We brought along our own birthday cake and they charged us $25.
Long and short of it, I'd be OK to return for the mains and service, but be prepared to pay top $$$. For us, there are better options in Williamstown. cheers
