Attached to the Mornington Yacht Club and adjacent to the Mornington pier, this is the place to be in summer – either on the casual cafe deck or inside in the more formal but relaxed restaurant, with views overlooking local fishing boats and yachts in the marina. The dining room specialises in live seafood, plucking crayfish, mud crabs and Moreton Bay bugs from tanks in the open kitchen. Start with a tasting plate of oysters from four different regions or seafood antipasto. The modern seafood selection also boasts a large sashimi menu and offers four to five different fish of the day. Popular dishes include the Spanish paella and the mixed seafood grill.
