TASTE OR FEAST: THE WHARF HAS SEAFOOD FOR EVERYONEby SEAN MALADY
“I just want to find somewhere with good seafood.”
This is often the chime of visitors to the Great Ocean Road region once they’ve unpacked their bags and are ready to relax over a meal.
The thoughtful menu
We believe that several well-thought out dishes on a menu, made with quality ingredients and great care, is why people like to dine with us. Our focused seafood selection has something for everyone; from the die-hard seafood fan to the curious novice. Our fish and chips are also a hit, and are a fresh, delicious take on a classic favorite.
Share, chat, eat.
Our impressive seafood platter offers more than enough seafood for two people and includes:
- Catch of the Day fish like Rockling, Atlantic Salmon and fresh local Gummy Shark;
- Portland Bay Bugs;
- Portland Squid chargrilled;
- Chilli mussels;
- Fresh King Prawns;
- Oysters Kilpatrick;
- Garlic prawns;
- and pan fried scallops.
This dish is best matched with an award-winning Koonara Sauvignon Blanc (vegan friendly and gluten free) from Mount Gambier. Our wine list also includes a curated selection of wine from Grampians Estate, Mt Napier, Cape Banks and Penfolds that go really well with our menu, including steak and pasta dishes.

Try something new
Locals and visitors love the way we prepare fresh mussels tossed in a rich tomato, chili, garlic and red wine sauce. We’re also well known for our char-grilled Portland squid marinated in citrus, garlic and olive oil. Order them both to taste and share, which is always fun in a group. We’ll keep the food coming!
Graze with a view
Our restaurant, with large windows, is located on the wharf of the Moyne River in Port Fairy. If you’re dining during the day, you’ll be treated to a front-seat view of the water, boats and bird life. When it’s dark, the wharf lights, against the water, bring a unique ambiance. So, don’t rush; after dinner you can relax in our lounge area with a cocktail or coffee. Afterwards, take a stroll along the wharf precinct.

November is cray season
On the south west Victorian coast, the crays are in abundance during November. So, if you’re coming to visit the area before the busy summer season, treat yourself to a delicious cray during this small window of opportunity.
