A stand out restaurant and at same time down to earth providing excellent food and wine. Worth the travel and visit all the way from the other side of town. Excellent service provided by Vu. Definitely worth another visit.

A hidden Gem!
Lived here for 3 years and had reason for a bit of a (big) personal celebration so chose to go somewhere we hadn’t been before.
Random search and what a find!
Absolute perfect location with stunning views across the bay to the Melbourne skyline.

Service was excellent, food was outstanding. Saturday night, early but still fairly busy. Staff were personal, friendly and always available.
Simply an outstanding evening.
Thank you very much and we will definitely come again!!!

I have been a local for 10 years and always wanted to try The Strand, and I was not disappointed, the service was excellent, the food fantastic and the view great. It was a date night for my wife and I which we usually do in a CBD establishment, hands down The Strand was a cut above most of the highly recommended CBD eateries. Will be heading back and hope to bring some of my clients to The Strand for a meal.

The steak and brandy cream sauce was to die for. We'll be back very soon. Staff very quick and helpful too.

Warm greeting by wait staff - fantastic seating taking in the view of Williamstown harbour and the city skyline. Drinks served promptly and orders taken without being rushed. A mixed seafood and a squid with a nice salad was the start of a fantastic culinary adventure! The main was a beautifully prepared steak with red wine jus along with a dish of perfectly cooked duck breast. Topped it off with a delicious Sticky Date pudding and a tipsy affogato! A little on the pricey side with 3 courses each plus 2 drinks each being close to $250 however it was special occasion and well worth it!

Cannot believe we'd been living in Melbourne for 2 years before our first time at The Strand.

Outstanding service added to the Birthday/date experience and given the location/ambiance I expected the price to be much higher.

This is now noted as a 'must' for taking my interstate friends and recommending to others.

We had a great evening and a fantastic view of Melbourne from our table. Service was friendly, but given the restaurant was very quiet, could have been a little more attentive. The food was excellent, as can been seen from the photo, the kitchen had an easy job to wash up!

Food was great, but a touch overpriced.
Coffee was revolting.
Cob loaf is really delicious as are the olives.
Waitress was great but waiter initially removed wine glass even though my wife was planning on having wine.
