Situated on the seafront at Port Melbourne’s Station Pier.

The appropriately named Waterfront at Station Pier makes full use of its prime location. Weather permitting, choose to sit outdoors on funky cane chairs behind a protective glass frontage or indoors in the large open space which inspires feelings of boarding an ocean liner setting sail for an exotic location. Massive lights hang from above, each with their own distinct design, and a chalkboard boasts creations that will have you yearning for more.

The Japanese-inspired, modern Australian menu concentrates heavily on seafood, but with this waterfront location you’d be disappointed if they didn’t. Start with Pacific or Sydney Rock oysters, or the assorted sushi plate with finely sliced fresh kingfish, tuna, salmon and prawn. For lovers of delicacies from the sea, follow with the velvety lobster risotto with green pea, chorizo, chilli, mascarpone and Thai basil. Alternatively, opt for the impressive ‘Deluxe Chilled Seafood Platter’ with sushi, natural oysters, king prawns, Moreton Bay bugs, blue swimmer crab, smoked salmon, marinated mussels. Finish with the Chocolate praline hazelnut mousse with chunks of brownie, raspberry jelly and topped with peppermint cream. The wine list varies in price with something for every budget, perfectly suited to the seafaring menu.

With its idyllic waterside location, panoramic views of Port Philip and the finest ocean-inspired menus, Waterfront is an impressive venue in which to host a function. The restaurant boasts a range of function rooms that can accommodate as intimate as 27 guests seated in the private Pier Room right through to a 300 person banquet that spans the whole venue.
