Not many places that you eat out at can do equally well as a cafe, bar and restaurant but Loading Dock Bar & Grill does well as a cafe-bar-restaurant even though its name is focused on being a bar-restaurant. Thinking of something for lunch in...More

This little restaurant at the quiet end of Docklands seems to cater mainly for residents in the nearby residential towers. Decor and service is non-descript, but the meals were a real surprise. Calamari was delicious and my eye fillet steak was perfectly cooked. Always good...More

Loading Dock is ideally situated riverfront at Yarra's Edge over looking the Yarra river. Loading Dock's menu is modern Australian, with excellent thin-crust pizzas, burgers from the grill and an abundance of fresh seafood, as well as exciting international dishes. This cosy place has north-facing outside tables, a small marina out front and great city views. Loading Dock is tucked away on Yarra's Edge ( the continuation west of South Wharf), over the pedestrian Webb Bridge from Docklands proper and a 10-minute stroll from the city.
