I know this restaurant well as I have been dining there for quite some time now. It is one of the best in williamshown. It has an excellent view of the sea and of melbourne CBD skyline. The food and service are consistently of high standard.

This place is suggested as being "fine dining" but it's actually casual, with no tablecloths. I would recommend this as being good for family get togethers - it is child friendly. Prices however are more along the fine-dining range. Service was mixed, with one courteous server and one (possibly the owner) who was not very friendly. Water was replenished only on request. Food was decent - but nothing to shout about considering the prices. A simple adjustment to the dish was requested and we were told it wasn't a problem, but was not followed. We didn't bother complaining.

All dishes were fantastic. Really tender steak and delicious entrees of scallops and calamari. Great view and superb service.

About The Strand 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.
