We came to Alexanders for dinner on last Sunday. It's the first time we have been there. The chill and rain made us walk in the restaurant. They were kind of quiet when we arrived. Only a few tables. We were hesitated to stay. Lucky it ended up a really enjoyable night for us. The oyster platter for $30 on... More

I went to Alexanders Williamstown with my family including two little children both are good eaters only when there are right food on the table. I ordered food they normally like and hoped this lunch could go smoothly. When the food for them was ready, I had a try and relaxed as it was very nice that they would definitely... More

Dined at Alexanders on Valentine's Eve and discovered it had changed its name approximately 4 weeks ago. We were informed by the waiter that it is now called Vault on Nelson even though the name Alexanders is still displayed out the front. We had a three course menu with a bottle of wine for $65 a head. The wine arrived... More

We had dinner in Alexander's last night. Just travelled from city to Williamstown for a different and enjoyable Valentine's day. The deco was pretty attractive and kind of historical. Locals told us the building was once belonging to a famous bank in Melbourne. With roses and candles on tables, the restaurant stopped us. It seemed to be quite busy night... More

We decided to have lunch in this place, as it was the end of my stay in Australia. Our party was 3 adults and a child. The decor looked nice and inviting. We were the only people in the restaurant, but we put it down being a Thursday. We were served pretty quick, the waiter was a bit unsure of... More

I can't comment on the food as service was so bad tonight, we never got to order. Two very uninterested staff ignored us sitting down outside. I ended up going in to ask for menus. Only had one table inside and one out with patrons. We got the Menus with out so much as a 'hello', nothing stood out to... More

I have often walked passed it but finally have decided to stop. The barramundi croquets were so fresh and soft that it was hard to dip them in the sauce! The pork belly was so tender served with a good serving of a chunky apple sauce. And scalloped potatoes. You will need to order either a side salad or vegetables.... More

Mobile Mortgage Brokers of Williamstown had their end of year work party here (about 9 of us). The food and wine was great as well as the decor and atmosphere. Service was great. The chocolate brownie for dessert was especially delicious.

Dined here for a function - 2 birthdays and combined Christmas. Biggest mistake. Entire family left really dissapointed as nothing went smoothly, nothing at all!!! Arrived to be the first in the restaurant. No waiter so forced to seat ourselves. Nobody came to bring menus for at least half an hour. No drink orders taken. No water brought to the... More
