We called in for a bite of lunch and a beer to slake our thirst on a Monday. It was a windy day and the staff were most welcoming and helpful suggesting we sit inside rather than ion the alfresco area. We had the pumpkin arancini which were brilliant; the pumpkin and feta dip which was fresh and very tasty... 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

Alexanders Williamstown is located on the ever popular Nelson Place in Williamstown.

The stunning heritage listed building (Formally the bank of Australasia) was constructed in 1876 with stunning high ceilings, original fireplaces and its gorgeous bank vault in tact which we use for private dining.

Alexanders Williamstown offers a delicious selection of both Modern Australian and Asian fusion dishes and  of course local, delectable and fresh seafood options including beautiful and ever popular "Seafood platter for two" for you to enjoy. All Dips, bread and desserts are made on site and are fresh, full of flavour  ready to enjoy.

Alexanders Williamstown is also specialized in functions and large group bookings for that special occasion.
