For a start, it has incredible views, set right out on the end of the pier with 180 degree views of the ocean. It is a little pricey but well worth it. The food is amazing! The steaks (between $35-39) were all cooked at our liking and the chicken was moist and tender too. They are very attentive and helpful. Never had an empty glass. Food comes out quickly too. Will be back for sure!

The two of us dined at this restaurant for the first time and it will be our last.
The best thing about this restaurant is its fantastic location.
They say you can tell how good a restaurant is by the number of patrons ... well it was 7.30 on a Thursday night and we were one of three tables each with two people.
We only got as far as the entrée before we realised it was time to quit and go elsewhere to eat.
We shared a tiny plate of calamari which was anaemic, dry and tasteless $21, scallops with pork (two scallops with a tiny piece of pork) $22, tiny amount of grilled mushroom $9, some olives $4, four glasses of wine $57 and mineral water $12.
We have eaten at some of Melbourne's best known fine dining establishments which are quite pricey, but with wonderful food. No doubt this establishment considers itself to be fine dining, but there is more to fine dining than just small portions and high prices ... like well-prepared tasty food.

I have never written a bad review on a restaurant but feel this one is justified. Sorry to say our bill was around the $350 mark for the two of us. We had a grilled platter which consisted of three bugs, about half dozen prawns, half dozen kilpatrick oysters, two small crabs and a small grilled snapper. How this could add up to the price charged is ridiculous. We had two drinks each and one desert which was apple/rhubarb crumble which I could easily have made at home...nothing fancy. There is no art in grilling seafood in the shell and the crabs were mushy and tasteless. The restrooms were filthy and had toilet paper all over the floor. We should have guessed when there were no occupied tables inside and only four other tables occupied outside that this was not going to be too good. It was our wedding anniversary and we were so very disappointed. Don't spend your hard earned money here, there are much nicer restaurants in Melbourne. Won't be back again.

We dined here on our first night in Melbourne and had a really nice meal. For a Tuesday evening it was still quite full. We shared a couple of starters between 4 of us then had their delicious Chateaubriand. The staff were attentive, there was a good range of choice on the menu, the food was good value and we had a glorious view over the bay to boot! We were so impressed that we went to their sister restaurant on the southbank in town later the following week

Decided to meet at this restaurant with friends and enjoy some drinks and dinner.
Warmly greeted by the wait staff and shown to our table, drinks were taken immediately and so ordered a bottle of champagne, great selection of wines from their list and the prices go from average to very expensive for those that have specific taste requirements.
The menu was extensive and the servicve provided was excellent.
Overall had a wonderful time here and the wait staff made it even more enjoyable.
Our favourite for the evening was the expresso martini's, something you have to try as least once.
Will be only too pleased to come back here again.
