The Boatbuilders Yard

South Wharf, Melbourne, Victoria

Price: $$$$
Bar snacks, Shared Plates


South Wharf is probably the only place in the world where a 500-seat restaurant could open right on the river, and The Boatbuilders Yard is testament to this fact. A modern restaurant with some rustic charm, the interior is packed with school chairs for feasting on classic pub grub and share plates, while outside there's a huge beer garden facing onto the waterfront - perfect for beers and a game of bocce.
