We ate in the Bellerive Waterfront hotel bistro section. Usually a bistro signifies a step above pub food but this was pretty much poor quality pub food. Only two steaks on the menu, both serged with chips, deep fried onion and a grilled tomato. At thirty two dollars for a scotch fillet, if you wanted salad you had to pay... More

Menu was average and we ordered the salmon and scallops. What a delight!! The salmon was HUGE and served with seasonal vegetables. The scallops were a generous serve served with fries... More

We dined at Sails on a beautiful summers Friday night and the restaurant was pretty much empty. I now know why. The view is amazing, the service of good but the food was extremely disappointing! The chicken parmi was dry and didn't have much Napoli sauce. The mushroom sauce, ordered as a side was like a tin of mushroom soup... More

Me being a small eater I ordered an entrée size chicken strips and salad. The meal consisted of 6 chicken strips and 3 lettuce leaves... No other salad components, not even dressing. This was well below par and I for one plus my husband will not dine there again.

Visited here for lunch on a beautiful sunny day, chosen for the outdoor dining experience looking over the water. That part of it was lovely but unfortunately our food was far from it. Just ordered chicken parmi's with chips & salad (despite resevations over the price, assuming it must be of quality) - there was minimal napoli sauce and the... More

We eventually had to call a waitress over to order our... More

Took two family members from Melbourne, renowned for their fussiness. The kitchen was about to close so we ordered quickly and were served quickly. We were appreciative of the fact they let us still come and eat. There was a good selection of food and it was well priced, well sized and tasty. The visitors liked it so much they... More
