Just had great lunch at the Strand. Good quality food, but what impressed me most was level of service. What I call good "old fashioned" service attentive but discrete. Highly recommended.

Our order of fish and chips came out fast. However when asked where is the flake from and the reply was Tasmania!! WHAT? I was stund considering you can see the bay from their shop. Support your local fisheries. Fish was ok but I'm sure it could be much better!

We took the ferry to Williamstown and walked around the area until we stumbled upon this restaurant. The service, atmosphere and food was outstanding. We sat on the deck which has a great view of the city across the bay. I had the deep fried soft shell crab on a Thai salad for an entree and it was very good
