This was our 8 year old's first experience in a real restaurant with real tablecloths. Logan had been practicing her table manners for a long time and this was her test. The staff were wonderful to her and even put her raspberry lemonade in a wine glass. She ordered her own meal from the menu as was very polite. The food was very good. PS Logan passed the test with flying colours.

Mixed review for the Marina restaurant. Varied menu with lots of different choices. Reasonably priced. Food was excellent. Quiet place to dine. Service needs alot of attention. Slow wait times, mixed up orders, seemed to be an air of confusion. Friendly wait staff but not very professional - need a bit of basic wait training. Marina not lit at all at night so the "view" was just a black void. I will give this place another chance just becasue of the food. Would be nice outdoors by the marina in Summer.
thank you for your comments l have spoken to the duty manager who was running the show on your visit in regards to your observations. we were training a new waitstaff member who as it would seem got a bit confused with your order, so its back to training and getting our staff to read your comments . Once again thank yo and we look forward to your next visit.

About Marina Restaurant

What do we harbour? Sit on the seaside and enjoy the fresh air at the Marina Restaurant. Enjoy beautiful views of the harbour while you sit and watch the boats float peacefully and dine at this majestic restaurant. Run by the manager and chef team Christine and Ian Pontin, the Marina is a veteran of the Mornington peninsula area, doing its delicious thing for over 25 years. Their extensive bistro menu has something to put a smile on everyone’s face, from fresh locally caught seafood, a jumble of worldly mains, to hearty items from the grill. Check out the numbers on their chef’s specialities. We loved the savoury, slightly spicy mussels with thick European bread, and the double baked duck in plummy brandy juices. Aside from their kids’ menu, they even do a special seniors menu, so the wizened among us can enjoy what’s more to their tastes. The wonderful wait staff will tend to all your mealtime needs with a smile! So enjoy the setting, the food and welcome to the Marina. Best dish: beef cheeks
