My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in a great setting
Very lovely restaurant with great food and service
Great service, beautiful food and wonderful view! The paella and sticky date pudding are must haves!
Had a great lunch at The Strand. The food and service were perfect will definitely be back.
Perfect view of the Melbourne City skyline and the bay even from the ground floor.
Well priced Wine menu.
Great service. Great view of the sunset from Williamstown. Food was delicious but not amazing. Noise would have been better if not for the party outside on the balcony.
Spot on for a special celebration. Front row seats onto the beach view. Best fish (grilled) and chips I have had in years. Healthy portion size unusual at places with this price point. Service terrific .
Excellent lunch - fabulous choices and iurs was perfect
Overpriced seafood platter, small portion, ambient is rather okay due to the sea view. However the service was not up to what is expected.
Absolutely amazing food, interesting interior for fine dining establishment. Is tipping considered standard practice here? I thought professional, high quality wait staff such as here would be paid as highly as they deserve.
My husband and I came here for a 'date night' and had such a wonderful experience. The food was exquisite and service exceptional. We live locally and will definitely be returning to the strand. Our only negative is that we didnt visit sooner!
Great Food and Service!! 🔥❤️
Our experience was absolutely brilliant! We sat looking across the sea with a view of the city. The service was delightful and above expectations! We have already planned a return trip for ourselves and a romantic dinner as part of a weekend getaway for friends.
Great food and great service. Very good wine list.
The place is amazing with very relaxing view, staff are polite,attentive and professionals. It was a very pleasant dining experience and we absolutely enjoyed the food.
Staff are welcoming and attentive from arrival to dessert. Specials were mentioned and recommendations were very good. Food, especially seafood, was cooked perfectly. Pleasantly surprised with the way flounder was prepared. The dessert tasting plate was devine.
Great place with a fabulous view from almost any table.
Service is attentive without being intrusive
Food is well presented, fresh & great flavours.
It is always if the same standard.
We had a lovely lunch looking over to the city across the water. Service was excellent and good fantastic. GF options fantastic.
Delicious food and excellent service. Thoroughly enjoyed our night at the Strand
This was the first time that my wife and i had been to the Strand. have been to other restaurants in the Williamstown area and we found the Strand to be on par with all the others
Great service great food good wine list. It's always great to come.
From the moment we arrive, the staff were friendly and very helpful.
The Food was excellent. The sticky date pudding is the best I have ever had.
The views at night looking across the water to the city are brilliant.
The sevice was excellent loved the osters and the hickory smoked salmon was to die for had a very good night
The staff is really friendly, food was amazing. Definitely will go back.
My wife and I went out for a date night, we found the service was exceptional food was very well presented and the taste was mouth watering, lovely quiet atmosphere so it was easy to have a conversation and the views were breathtaking, definitely will go back.
Good food, prepared in accordance to customer request. Staff very friendly.
Only pity is upstairs not open on the sunday when I was there. Otherwise, would be a splendid time.
The service and food was great and the staff accomodated for the occasion. The express lunch was great value. Highly recommended.
Overall we were pleased with our meal. Service was helpful and friendly and the ambiance was lovely.
great food and great service. The staff were attentive and the food was creative particularly the vegetarian options. Loved the parsnip soup particularly.
Heating on the night was up way too high. Needed to be controlled better.
Was a great night . Food and service was special. We would recommend to anyone to go
Great atmosphere and great food. Professional and friendly staff.
We left thinking “why have we lived in Williamstown for 3 years before having dinner here”.
Great location and the service and wine list were very good, the mains were nice but not as nice as the entree's, which were very good. Would certainly go back as the service was very good and the location is excellent, and would recommend to a friend. The people on other tables looked to be enjoying their meals as well.
The seafood tower is fantastic, we went for a late lunch prior to a show
Had a meal at The Strand on a Friday night with family. Place is lovely, with a great view of city lights. Meal was very good, but the fish and chips was over priced for what was on the plate. We had entrée, main, dessert and drinks and it was $450 for four persons! All food was brought out in a timely manner, with a smile. Staff could have been better prepared for questions as had to go to kitchen a few times. They cater for families, GF and Vegetarians well, with a comfy atmosphere and lovely location. We will be back!
There were 10 of us dining, and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the friendly service. The seafood was fresh and well prepared, menu provided lots of options, and a good wine list. Great lunch venue with stunning views over the yachts and the bay.
Sensational atmosphere, wonderful service, all around great dining experience.
Ate dinner here Friday 13th April 2018, it was delicious, I'm still raving about it!! Haven't eaten here for quite awhile, was very impressed. Arrived at 6pm, chose an outside patio table looking across the water to Melbourne's night skyline, was seated promptly, no one else in the restaurant at this time. I ordered scallops for entree and atlantic salmon as my main meal, both were absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients, best meal I've had in Williamstown for ages. Service was very good, always topping up my water and checking if we needed anything else. I've eaten at quite a few of the restaurants in Williamstown, none of them special enough to keep you coming back. The Strand is a stand out! I really enjoyed my meal, have already booked again for next month, can't wait!
The staff were all very accommodating to the fact our party had two vegans. The two floor staff properly explained what options there were and how to have it made vegan. They were also really good with the three kids we had. The baby's high chair was ready to use and all set up in the middle of the table which was a nice touch. They also brought out pencils and colouring papers straight away. Overall, really nice and helpful.
We also had a cake that they not only stored for us but gave us candles as we forgot. On top of that, they sliced the cake up for us and gave a little extra bit of whipped cream and a strawberry sauce on the side of each slice. So thoughtful and amazing! Thank you for all your help :) we were all very happy.
We had paella. The sea food was scarce and very likely made with reheated leftovers.
Really disappointing. We left most of the seafood uneaten.
I suspect the staff, who was friendly enough, must have known because they never asked how we liked the food.
