    As very regular customers of the Exchange hotel we have had 3 experiences now where the food was never delivered on time (we have a limited time as we work locally) or the food was rubbish. This last time, Friday 19 June 2020 was our last, sorry to say. Didn't get a table in the dining room as requested, rather a table between the kitchen door and the entrance to toilets, really classy...not. Then our food came and I got my entree and main at same time, really? The entree was burnt beyond edible and the ceaser salad had no anchovies, little dressing and a very hard boiled egg. Pitiful really and we would not go or recommend this restauarant to anyone.

    Waiter was run off his feet serving behind the bar and in the restaurant. He did a great job and could have used some more help. Food was lovely and live music was good too

    Thursday night is steak night at The Exchange, and the value for money is exceptional. Always great to visit with friends and enjoy the atmosphere.

    All 4 steaks were over-seasoned (too salty). Restaurant is open to the bar so a loud and rowdy group spoiled the atmosphere for us.

About the restaurant

Hit the Bay Port Melbourne is known for its fun and beachy vibe. While there are plenty of restaurants dappling Bay Street, the Exchange Hotel steps up the classy factor. Whether it’s an after-work tipple, a celebratory meal or a special event, the Exchange Hotel provides a stylish venue with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Perched near the water at the end of Bay Street, the Exchange Hotel wins awards, and it’s easy to see why. Dishing out modern Australian fare, the Exchange Hotel serves lunch and dinner in its inviting, friendly digs. The bar features an extensive range of bottled and tap beer, as well as plenty of good wines from various regions throughout Australian and New Zealand. On weekends, you’ll find the resident DJ pumping out tunes. On Sundays, chill out (and recover from the weekend, perhaps) with an acoustic soloist playing the classics. And did we mention the parmas here? Legendary. Best dish: Chicken parma served with Champagne ham, Napoli and two cheeses
