Accidenty reviewed the Marina instead of this restaurant LOL, so I can't be bothered repeating myself. Suffice to say, we went due to glowing reviews, I had been in its past decor, this is nicer. But in my view, both the service and the food miss the mark. They are relying on the scenery to carry them - and if... More

Went with family to this restaurant. Beautiful location on the water looking across the bay to a panorama of the Melbourne skyline. We were greeted with lots of enthusiasm and energy so I thought we were in for some really great service. The food was very good. I had the steak tartare for entree, which was amazing and my hubby...

Went for Sunday lunch and found the quality of the food was very outstanding and the service provided was exceptional and the bonus was the view over the water. Will definitely be back soon.

Lunch at the Anchorage is decadent and highly recommended. Food was superb matched by the presentation and service. We look forward to coming back next time we visit Williamstown and hope to be able to come for dinner.

We love the venue, especially on a perfect summer day. Sun glistening on the water ... it's so lovely to watch the boats bobbing gently on the water. Anchorage staff are helpful and always give a warm greeting and excellent service. The decor is very relaxed.... it's just the menu.... prices are top end of town, which is fine for... More

We were greeted by a very friendly guy who confirmed our reservation and led us to a splendid table just inside the windows. The decor was tasteful and the views excellent. Waiter quickly arrived and ensured we were content. He had a very friendly and jovial manner which helped to make the overall dining experience extremely pleasantly. Drinks order quickly... More

There were 10 of us for lunch yesterday, the service was excellent, food fresh and delicious and looking out across the water to the city skyline was magical. Will definitely be dining here again. Thank you for making our Christmas work luncheon memorable.

Came back to this restaurant for lunch last week. It continues to be one of the stand out places to eat in Williamstown. The view is probably one of the best of the Melbourne skyscape, and from this angle over water. Not many people get to see this as they don't venture to this side of the river and Westgate... More
