Last night's dinner was a disaster. Waited over 2 hours then only 2 of 3 mains arrived - the cook totally forgot the entrees & 1 main meal! Despite the best efforts of the waiting staff who were commendable, the night was a disaster. The owners did not even come out to apologize, they left their waiting staff to bear... More

My partner and I have been here a few times now and we use to love the food! We took some friends here over the weekend and I'm not sure if they have recently changed owners but the food and service was terrible and we only ordered pita bread/dips and a greek salad. I'm afraid we won't be coming here... More

Dined with a group of friends on Saturday evening. Had an 8pm reservation. Food not up to standard for price. Could only get chips and salad with meals. Told they don't do vegetables, could not do mashed potatoes and had run out of their potato gratin. We were the only people in restaurant, don't know how they had run out... More

Beautiful old building and tasteful decor but food not up to scratch. Open lamb souvlaki was salty. Pita bread tough and oily. Pork belly crackling was like a solid lump of fat. Plates and glasses unclean. Had to ask for extra plate for mussel shells. Overpriced given the quality.

Booked in on the day which I feel we were lucky to get in considering it being Williamstown, but it was a very cold/wet winters night and that would keep people away at times. This old bank building I had visited once before a long time ago , it has had several changes over time. Traditional with the old buildings,... More

Sunday Anniversary lunch for a party of fourteen. Wonderful restaurant, friendly staff. Food fantastic and reasonably priced. The linguini marinara is one of the best I have ever eaten. Pork belly and Arancini were also delicious. This was my third visit and I look forward to many more.

Headed to Alexanders for a late Sunday lunch today - a great value option, one that I would recommend. Three of us dining today - started with a Dips Plate and then followed with a Lamb Souvlaki, Beef Salad and Calamari Salad. Dips Plate was a great way to start with just the right amount of bread to get us... More

Perfect gnocchi texture. Well cooked parmigiana. Beautifully restored heritage listed interior. Right across from the Williamstown foreshore with nice views of the water.

We weren't overly impressed our booked table wasn't held however were happy enough with the alternate provided. Entrée was really nice, trying a couple of the offerings - the barramundi croquettes being particularly nice. It was a bit of a wait for mains but not too long and timed well enough to provide good chat time. The mains are what... More
