We celebrated a 91st birthday lunch and on a Tuesday, so the restaurant was very quiet, which was lovely. The service was outstanding. The waiter recommended wine for us and they also accommodated some specific dietary requirements. The view out to the water with the boats was lovely, even with all the smoke from the bushfires in country Victoria. Would highly recommend.
My husband and I enjoyed a seafood platter and it was amazing. So fresh and lots of seafood.
The service was great
Service friendly, however seafood platter wasn't as fresh. Scallops were tiny and not juicy and crab felt like it wasnt fresh but frozen (mushyish meat)
Long wait for service after being seated. Seriously overcooked salmon and poor quality food overall.
Outstanding friendly and prompt service.
Generous meal portions and extremely enjoyable.
We loved the bright open feel of the restaurant,with views across to the city. Service was friendly,intuitive and well versed on all aspects of the appealing menu and wine options. The flounder was excellent,simply prepared with incredible flavour. My friend tried the lamb,said it was the best he had ever eaten.
We will definitely be returning,as this restaurant unlike many others,ticks all the boxes.
Whilst we had a lovely time, food was good but definitely not warranting the prices. We ordered a good medley of dishes and we all agreed they were just okay. Fairly ordinary presentation. Sort of old international, chunky and confused.
Not sure if restaurant feels the proximity to water makes it special enough no need to be outstanding with food. ??? As I was not drinking cannot comment on wine selection.
One exception was the saganaki with figs... brilliant.
Service friendly and prompt enough.
Yes it was a disappointing choice that I made.
Food was great and service too, also best Mojitos we've ever had. only annoyance was being seated at a corner table where one had view of the water and other had view of the roundabout, it wasn't packed and I just wonder why they didn't seat the lady on her own at the corner table and us at her table.. at least then all 3 of us would of had water views.
Lovely meal , beautiful scenery over looking the bay,
Good location overlooking the city.
A bit expensive
The food was delicious and the ambience was quiet and relaxing
Enjoyable evening, wonderful service and great food, thank you.
Fabulous food and very considerate service, willing to alter the menu to accomodate food allergies. Beautiful location, lovely fine dining experience.
Beautiful food and friendly staff. We were well accommodated as it was a large group.
Service impeccable, meals were delicious, views outstanding, location onpoint. We caught the ferry from Southbank to Williamstown and chose to book at The Strang based on the reviews to celebrate our sons birthday. We loved the entire experience and The Strand was well worth the visit. Highly recommended.
Really nice restaurant with great food in a lovely location. The express menu was excellent value for money.
I ordered the lamb dish which was quite expensive - $56 - and the meat was overcooked. I sent the lamb chops back which was no problem, but got 2 smaller lamb chops that were just as overcooked. There were no apologies. While the restaurant itself is lovely, I would not recommend it to friends
We like to lunch here with friends as it is consistently good for food, service and ambience.
Very dissapoibtung service with a waiter that was useless . Ordered a tall latte and he brings a soy latte . Spent 285 dollars on a useless terrible 2 main meal and 2 starter course . Never again
very attentive wait staff, good recommendations. the duck papadelle, the wagyu and the lamb were excellent! extensive wine list!
If you love seafood then this is the place to go! We shared the stack, a seafood platter like no other. Everything on the platter was delicious, but very individual in taste (sometimes seafood can just blend into more of the same ... not this one!). Highly recommended for great food, good service and friendly atmosphere.
The staff were so friendly and so pleasant. I have been going there for the last 4 times and it is amazing. The food was cooked to perfection and also being V & GF the chef cooked to my liking. Thank you to all and looking forward to my next booking. 😃
Food was great and a great location. Highly recommended.
Food and service were great! Went there for a wedding anniversary lunch and cannot fault anything will recommend to friends.
We had an afternoon overlooking the water with the sun shining it was a perfect day with the seafood platter and a lovely bottle of wine, so delicious and enjoyed every minute of the day.
The picture of the food/meal and the reality matched very well.
First time but the food and service were superb... will be visiting again for sure
We had the seafood tower. It was amazing. The staff were really friendly and helpful, their service was outstanding. We asked for a wine recommendation and it was fabulous. Our food come out really quickly. The over all ambiance was really lovely. It was warm and cosy on a cold night. Would definitely recommend :)
Unfortunately our table for two was next to a large birthday party inhabited by a couple of loudmouth bores, very poor placing!
Entree , shared was 3 scallops for $24 ,nice, not great and way overpriced.My main pasta seafood was very good and had generous amounts of seafood.Guests's barramundi was overcooked and dry.
Sorbet sweet was lovely. Request for a bread roll was met with incredulous look from staff, none available.
Wine list was good but reasonably expensive.
Overall not good value for money,I was hoping for more but The Strand under delivered,plenty of better and cheaper options out there.
155 for very ordinary seafood
I can honestly say the fish and chip shop would have been tastier
Our dinner at The Strand was wonderful. The restaurant has a great location and ambience. The food is delicious and the staff helpful and friendly.
Excellent food, wine and service. Great location. We'll be back!
Sat on the deck and enjoyed the sun setting reflected in the windows on the city skyscape.
The staff were fantastic, attentive, informative and friendly. The menu has something for everyone, and was plated beautifully; but most importantly, was delicious.
It was an all round great experience, from the great views to great service and great food
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch date will be raving about the strand to all of my friends
Too much fried food on the seafood platter. Battered fish and calamari was very bland for the price. Service was good.
Great service and good food overlooking the marina
Excellent food with a great view across the bay to Melbourne city. We had the express lunch which is great value.
Awesome food and service. A table of 8 and all of us loved the food.
Nice place to visit I thought the entree was good, mains ordinary however the steak was cooked all over the place over cooked and under-cooked in places and the Panna cotta was sensational brulee was chalky Sorry if I* seem harsh however for the money I wouldn't say it was good value particularly with the standards of the other eateries in Williamstown
Lovely food. The service was magnificent. Very attentive to your needs explained the menu and made sure that your glass was always full. We will be back
