The Beach House
On the beach at Waterfront Bay, this two-storey property on the promenade overlooks the children’s swimming pool by day and the lights of Melbourne across the bay by night. The upstairs restaurant is light-filled with lots of glass and white furnishings to maximise the seaside views. Expect entrées such as steamed Port Arlington mussels, an antipasto plate and a vegetarian tasting plate to start. Main courses might be oven-roasted rack of lamb, Thai yellow curry, linguini marinara, char-sui marinated pork belly or market-fresh local fish. A cafe downstairs offers a more casual menu of wraps and burgers, and is open daily for breakfast and lunch.
