Not a bad spot for a relaxing lunch and drink. The saganaki entree was delicious accompanied by a plump fig and walnuts, it's always lovely to get small bread rolls and butter on the side without asking. Our mains were delicious and exquisitely presented. I recommend the chicken breast. So juicy and tender, just right. the staff was friendly and... More

Organised a work function in the Pier room upstairs. Various menu options and drinks were available. Excellent quality and staff were punctual serving courses during the presentation. Views of Melbourne are exceptional on a clear, still evening.

In the Hobsons Bay Area for weekend vining friends TA reviews were ok so we decided to check this place out for dinner. Parking nearby was a challenge, but it was worth the walk to be warmly welcomed to this restaurant. Staff were all attentive and showed to a table, took drink orders and provided menus. Beer on tap options... More

Sat here after a lovely lunch of shared plates: prawn and crab bruschetta , two home made dips with Turkish bread and some cauliflower croquettes . Totally stuffed! Superb service too from the server and bar man. The views top it off.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Pelicans Landing. We went on a Thursday night around 8pm and was very quiet. We were the last to leave at only around 9:30pm. Wouldn't recommend as a social spot midweek, but was perfect for a date night. Even though it was quiet, we were still treated to fine dining quality... More

It was a Mums day out! Taking my mum and MIL out for a Sunday lunch with the kids, Pelicans Landing is a safe option. The menu caters for fussy kids, boring older people's meals (MIL doesn't do much flavour) and myself and Mum that enjoy some adventure! I have the lamb special with pumpkin, feta and Beetroot, yum! MIL... More

A great place to go for a beer or wine during happy hour, every day from 4 till 7, then to enjoy a feed of fresh Mussells in Napoli sauce with hot bread. Yummy. After a few beers the entre size was plenty and at just $5 a schooner and $20 for the Mussells, it was fantastic. On top of... More
