    Ordered the seafood tower and it was disappointing. Bugs and crab was not fresh. For $155 you’d expect a lot better quality food. Unfortunately, will not be coming back.

    The food and service here is excellent. Flavoursome entrees of calamari and a saganaki style cheese. Our eye fillet for main was cooked perfectly.

    The Strand looks very good from the outside looks classy great spot BUT ???? The food is overpriced ???????? no difference than a pub meal (sorry) I don’t understand how they received such a good rating the place was also 1/2 empty This restaurant does have great potential to become great but no rush to go there again ????

    Very welcoming, staff were on top of service for example removing plates, topping up glasses, timing for ordering drinks and meals. Food was fantastic, we had the seafood tower. Top quality, great flavors, maybe an extra prawn on each skewer and 6 Oysters instead of 4. Other than that it was excellent.

    The Strand restaurant was just perfect. The situation overlooking the water, the welcome on arriving, the service, the food and the music which was not loud but a good choice of songs, made this visit for us really rememberable. The professional way this restaurant is run is the best we have visited for a long time. Good place, good food, best of service, cannot fault anything. Well done at The Strand, Williamstown Vic.

    My wife & I enjoyed the food - service a little slow & very warm inside & loud & noisy. Expected it to be a little better considering the time, it was for a Thursday Lunch.

    Came here for a birthday gathering, the prices are high but the views are beautiful. The duck main was delicious and cooked perfectly, the seafood linguine had just the right amount of seafood. My choice of dessert was a miss.

    This restaurant is very welcoming as soon as you walk in. Our table was in the sun and they moved us to another table so the sun wouldn’t be in our eyes. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Definitely will be back again, highly recommend this restaurant for its welcoming and friendly staff to it’s amazing food!

    Starter and entree nice however main dish was disappointing considering the cost. Expected the$48 porterhouse steak would be tender, instead it was quite chewy. Service was good, waiters very friendly. Overall the food was quit average for high price.

About the restaurant

On a see-food diet

Gather by Hobson’s Bay in one of Melbourne's most classic, yet relaxing settings. The bright dining space, delicious cuisine, beautiful views and friendly staff make this one of our favourite restos in Williamstown. The menu is carefully divided between ‘starters’, ‘field’, ‘paddock’ and ‘ocean’, and features everything from scallop ceviche to Gippsland grass fed Black Angus. There is also an extensive cheese menu and a selection of delicious desserts. Given the seaside location start with a few freshly shucked oysters and the tempura soft shell crab. Other menu highlights include whole South Australian rock lobster, 150 grain fed Black Angus and the Shellfish Tower. Trust us, food by the sea doesn’t get much better than this.

Best dish: Shellfish Tower to share - whole king prawns, crab, scallops with garlic & parsley butter, battered King George Whiting, oysters natural and Kilpatrick, Port Arlington mussels in marinière sauce, french fries and garden salad.
