We have been here a number of times and have enjoyed the experiences. The food and service is excellent and prices are reasonable. The location is on the beach so lunch on the balcony on a nice day is memorable.Dinner at night is also good and the wine list is quite extensive and well priced.

My boyfriend took me here on a nice dinner. We sat inside because it was cold but we were sat by the window to watch the sun set. The view over the beach is stunning, and really special when the sun is going down. I had the seafood chowder and it was divine, we then shared the dessert platter -... More

I have been here for lunch many times and Waves never disappoints. The view is to die for, menu is delicious, staff are really friendly and efficient and the coffees great. The only downside is you have to pay Frankston City Council a few bucks each hour for the parking. We love Waves, they rate a 10/10for me 😊

Great night out. Weather allowed us to dine in comfort looking out onto the beach. Food great. Loved the salmon for the main meal and the lemon curd tart for dessert. Husband enjoyed the chicken for main meal and three layered chocolate mousse for dessert. Would go again for a special occasion. Not too pricey.

On a sunny Wednesday afternoon a group of 7 friends gathered for a catch-up lunch at Waves. We were given a table outside on the deck overlooking the beach, which was just perfect. We found the service to be efficient, accomodating and friendly and although the restaurant was busy we felt in no way under pressure to leave at the... More

We have given this restaurant a few chances being locals in the hope that maybe they were having a "bad day" but we are never going back there again! Had a family dinner one night, there was a long hair in my daughters food! She discovered it in the food have way into the meal - yuck. On another occasion... More

Love this place, gets better each time i visit. Great service, great food at reasonable prices and great view. Highly recommend and I'll be back. Had dessert tonight - great variety, loved what we had, passionfruit cheesecake and the chocolate walnut cake.
