Whether you're outside in the sun, or inside out of the wind this is a great place for a coffee. Coffee's good. Tea - multiple options. Cake, food, all as you'd expect. The bonus is the view & a chance for a beach walk.

The Rotunda is located in park lands opposite the Cafe strip in Williamstown's Hobson Bay. The area is great for picnics and plain relaxing with Ocean views. There are plenty of activities around the area and the view of Melbourne City is pretty cool, also.

We popped in for a snack and cool drink on a hot day. Welcome was warm, restaurant airy and inviting, seating comfortable. The view is wonderful. Our order arrived quickly and we all agreed it was delicious! What a great place on the beach to return to whenever we visit. Superb!

One of the most unique restaurants in Melbourne! Based on a beautiful original old music rotunda on the beach front with 360 degrees views, yes it's one of the smallest restaurants but hey! It's on a music stand! This place is a true romantic place for a couple or and intimate group. I ordered the risotto which I am very... More

We ate here on 15th Feb 2015. The restaurant was quite empty and quiet. We both ordered the vegetarian pizza as we don't eat meat. We were served promptly and I must say, without any doubt this was one of the best pizzas we had ever eaten. The vegetables were fresh with plenty of cheese to add flavour. The pizza... More

I was there this morning. The restaurant was quiet compared to the next door. However, the service was good and the waitress was so nice☺️. I have been in Williamstown for ages and am very impressed with the service downstairs, especially the coffee. You cannot take the takeaway food to dine upstairs as upstairs is the restaurant. Restaurant has its... More

Went to rotunda on a day trip to the beach, and severely regretted it! The waitress at the downstairs takeaway window told us it was fine to sit upstairs. We waited for our food (the fish and chips came 10 minutes before the pizza, both of which were ordered at the same time). When eventually we got called over to... More

Have been here several times over the last ten years for lunch/brunch and always pleased with the food and friendly staff. So much better value for money than the "tourist trap" next door.

We were in williamstown just after Valentine's day and didn't want a big lunch as we'd eaten out the night before. This little restaurant with windows facing the sea has a good menu with some light meals as well as a few more substantial ones. I had a delicious grilled calamari salad and my partner had Fettuccine Marinara. My partner... More
