Hadn't been here before and didn't really know much about it but was pleasantly supplied. All of the family which included a 10 and 11 year old enjoyed the meal. Location is great and the big windows show off the lights from the city and all around the bay. Having a kids menu is a bonus as that ensures keeping... More

My family and I have been here many times and recently for a special occasion, there were a couple of changes - tables and chairs - gone were the table cloths and the chairs were small and not comfortable - which left the place with very much a cafe feel. Which is fine if you want to price it that... More

If you're staying in Brighton you must go to the Baths. Yes, you can swim and exercise or as we did have breakfast/brunch. Nice choice of typical breakfasts plus great coffees and juices. And if you can sit outside overlooking the bay well that's a real bonus. Lovely staff and nice relaxed atmosphere. You must visit! Enjoy.

Great food and great service, our lunch group visited here recently and had a most enjoyable meal with great service and fantastic view of Melbourne and Port Philip Bay, the ox cheek highly recommended and the chocolate fondant not to miss.

We booked an Express Lunch online as part of the Melbourne Food Festival but were disappointed at the choices and quality of the actual menu on offer, especially as it differed from the online version. This is all the more surprising as we had enjoyed a superb degustation menu at the same establishment a couple of years ago. Service was... More

We were searching for a place to have a retirement dinner with 20 people in attendance. We were able to secure a private room overlooking the bay. From the moment we arrived and had drinks and canapes on the deck overlooking the bay with city views to the actual private dining room experience, to the time we finished our celebrations... More

Impromptu dinner with friends enjoying the seafood special. Views are amazing, staff are wonderful and food was just perfect. I have eaten there twice now and have enjoyed both times. Thank you to the team as this restaurant has the views but with great food and service.

Absolutely fantastic service, our meals were delicious and arrived on time. We also have allergy requirements which were catered for without hassle. Amazing ocean views, and great atmosphere. We're going back.
