Modern Australian
Located alongside the historic Federation Wharf vaults and Yarra River right in the heart of Melbourne, Pilgrim is an intimate waterfront venue that proudly engages producer authenticity through its unique range of all Australian wine, beer and spirit lists. This producer engagement drives our seasonal share plate dishes, a focused menu that encourages grazing. From vineyard, distillery and brewery to your glass, from farmer to plate, the entire process and experience is a genuine one which makes our relaxed bar environment the ultimate place to laze and graze, all year round, while taking in one of the best views of the Yarra.

Pilgrim is a beautiful location for afternoon drinks and tapas. The Brie is to die for. I would recommend booking if you want a table with a view!

Staff were super friendly and had a great knowledge of the daily specials. Food and drinks are well priced. It cost just under $200 for a lunch for four including drinks. The only negative is that Google Maps has the wrong location and I found myself on the wrong part of the river!!

Since I was only here for a date and had a small plate I need to go back to try other items on the menu. The staff were attentive and welcoming to our needs and I appreciated that our reserved table had a first class view of the Yarra. This highlighted that the staff were thoughtful about our placement as we visited on a busy Friday night where the after work socialites hang around for their catch ups. Based on initial impressions I would recommend to others.

Went for farewell drinks on a Friday afternoon. Better to go for a meal, as prices are reasonable- drinking beer can be a bit pricey. Great service from attentive staff. Awesome location.

Staff were super accommodating, looking after our table of 10 for a cousin's catch up despite us booking on the AFL grand final night! Food was great too. Wonderful evening in a fab location

Good position on waterfront. Food very expensive for portion sizes. Drinks were good at happy hour. Only 1 TV for Grandfinal which was disappointing.

This was a very relaxed place to eat. The food was beautiful however the sharing plates were quite small. The beer and drinks were excellent.
Thanks we will be back.

We made a booking yet were made to wait outside for 10 minutes. It was a very busy night and the wait staff were flat chat. Service was friendly but slow. We would have liked to have sat outside but it was the first warm night in Spring and everybody had the same idea I think.
