    Service was on point and could not be faulted. Food was of an equally high standard. We ordered a variety of dishes and were happy with all of them. The fork offer also made it an absolute bargain.

    This restaurant is extremely good value when booked via TheFork's 50% discount. My lobster pasta was beautiful and my friends really enjoyed their food. Only negative was the restaurant did not receive our booking from The Fork - however they honoured the 50% discount and we were lucky that there was a table available.

    First off we were shocked by the amazing area this restaurant is located! Beautiful view of the city and right next to a pier and open grass area! Service was fantastic and VERY accommodating (went above and beyond) Food tasted fantastic portion sizes are substantial with a great price tag. Brilliant for the summer will be back for drinks and lunch 5 STAR

    The Vault never disappoints. The menu offers great variety and value for money and the service is second to none. A particular shout out to Tony who was friendly and attentive to our group’s needs. Will definitely be recommending to friends and returning to this local gem.

    I had lunch here with my family on warm Sunday afternoon in early October. We were greeted by the very friendly host, shown to our table for six, and promptly given a wine list and menus. We ordered the seafood platter for four, the pork ribs and lobster spaghetti (from the specials menu). The seafood was definitely a highlight as well as the very welcoming and friendly staff. Will definitely return to The Vault next time we’re in Williamstown! Thanks for a lovely afternoon!

    The staffs were very friendly. The food portion is quite small especially the seafood platter.

    There are dishes that did not impress - parpadelle and fish of the day- and can be improved. Overall though, with Fork t0 off, it was a good deal.

    This is a little gem located in Williamstown. Lovely ambiance, a roaring fireplace and water views. We enjoyed dishes such as the pork ribs, calamari salad, lamb shanks and rhubarb pie. What was even better we 50% of the cost of our meals through The Fork :)

    the salad in the fish special was really nice first time, now it has coriander. Wish something strong like that can be put on the side, not mixed in.

About the restaurant

Keeping in mind the heritage value of our beautifully restored 18th century building our culinary team has devised a menu respecting the simplicity of yesteryear but incorporating modern cooking techniques whilst respecting the try nature of the ingredients used. By following the technique of nose to tail cookery we respectfully handle all ingredients showcasing the value each has towards the dish it is being used in. Some call it modern "Australian" we call it respectful love. Add a delicate touch of Asian influence and our menu comprises dishes that cover a wide range of delicacies that even the most discerning diner will still find a wonderful dish to indulge in. For more casual dining we offer a light but crafty modern courtyard menu to be enjoyed in the recently renovated beer garden.

We also offer private function spaces where you can indulge in traditional "high tea" or set menus ranging from sit down dinners to stand up cocktail parties.

Why wait? Pick up the phone and call us or check our Instagram page to see what delicacies we are preparing today.
