Very enjoyable dinner with friends at a local restaurant.
Great food, great service, great venue. Will definitely go back again
First day after lockdown, girls birthday lunch. Service friendly and efficient.
We all enjoyed ourselves and will be back!
This was our first choice of outing after lockdown. A beautiful tasty lunch, lovely decor, not a set menu and staff that were engaged and very happy to be there and situated next to the beautiful Elwood beach. It absolutely didn’t disappoint. We’ll be back.
Beautiful food, great ambience and location, helpful, unobtrusive staff
Very professional staff from start to finish.
Nothing was too much trouble.
We sat on the terrace which was lovely. The menu prices are pretty expensive except for the pizzas which we had and were good value. Obviously you pay a premium to be beachside but $8 for one scoop of icecream was a bit more than I expected!
The problem with ordering via QR code is you don’t get great service. Food was dropped every time without cutlery and it was hard to get a staff member when you needed something extra like a glass or spoon or napkins. Seemed to be a different staff member each time which means no one is supervising the tables and understanding what’s needed.
It was a lovely day so asides from the prices and lack of staff attention it was a nice lunch
In a word. Epic.
We have been here several times and always find the staff to be very professional and they go out of their way to make you feel valued. Food is always very fresh, very good, cooked as ordered and well presented. Our down side on this visit was the $33 we paid in surcharges for a Saturday lunch time meal with two friends. We were unaware that there was a Saturday surcharge. Will not stop us from returning but I think we could have been alerted to the fact that there was 10% surcharge which by the way is at the very high end when it comes to surcharges. Our waitress was from Peru and we enjoyed chatting with her about her home country and how she found Australia. Despite the surcharge we would recommend this restaurant highly, and doubt you will be disappointed.
We had a lovely time at Elwood bathers to celebrate my birthday. Lovely location,great food,and very helpful staff
Great location, beautiful food, efficient and attentive service. Nice atmosphere, good for a special lunch or a casual coffee catch up.
Joel and his team at Elwood Bathers never disappoint. Personal attention, wonderful service and fabulous food. So lucky to have in our neighborhood.
Beautiful location and views and great vibe. Food was fresh, well presented and full of flavours. Great menu selection for all dietary tastes.
A great venue for an autumn or winter day in Melbourne as it is a perfect location to see the bay in cooler weather. While the food is good quality it is over-priced for what it is as are the drinks. Can be noisy.
We were looked after exceptionally for a late lunch. The wine matchings were outstanding and the food consistently good as usual.
Great, everyone was happy
Outstanding restaurant, food, service - everything.
Went mid week for lunch and had great service and a tasty meal (John Dory fillets). Noise level is lower at this time. One of the best bayside venues for an on water dining experience.
Very enjoyable lunch with 6 friends who all agreed - restaurant ticked all boxes.We will return
A wonderful table with a lovely view on the terrace.
Excellent staff great. Food and wine superb as always
I would like to have a Breakfast options menu.
Nice beach views but no table service at the outdoor deck (order with app). Menu could do with more vegetarian main dishes.
Just love it here, Tuesday lunch done right, made to feel it’s a special occasion even if it’s not.
The 'Phone based Ordering System was a disaster. We go to a restaurant to relax and order simply and efficiently through a Waiter or Waitress. With this system we ended up stressed and confused. Waitress delivering the eventual order was very pleasant but when we complained to the management we were told we could have ordered 'live' if we were having difficulty. Why didn't someone tell us. Others on tables around us also very unhappy.
Not going there again!
The use of the App for ordering ruined the whole experience. It was clumsy, impersonal, inaccurate and unpleasant. The food and ambiance and more were great, but the App is a shocker.
We arrived and were met by a polite maître d who showed us to our table near a table of about 20 women. I asked if we could be moved due to noise. It was not a problem and we went on to have an excellent with a terrific waiter
A wonderful experience- food, wine & ambience were excellent!
Amazing view over the sea on a rough day!
Amazing food and service! The day was lovely and sunny, making the view perfect. I had the roast chicken which was delicious!
Love Elwood Bathers, it’s a great local for me but attracts people from everywhere because they do it so well and have one of the best uninterrupted views of the beach and bay.
Excellent, friendly service, beautiful food and gorgeous ambiance.
its lovely to be and see the beach ,location is fanstatic.
Having booked in advance I was bit disappointed to be allocated the table opposite the door and next to the concierge desk where people intermittently gathered, when there were many spare tables.
However when we requested another table this was kindly obliged which was appreciated.
Poor impersonal service. Cafe ambience for 5 star price.
Great place with amazing views of the beach. Service was excellent. Food was yummy but prices are $$$
Great location and great
Great food & service, with a great view. Not the cheapest but would highly recommend.
Food was delicious, everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The red wine jus and steak were perfect! Had a window seat so was able to enjoy the view. Only suggestion would be to dim the lights and maybe use candles? Bright interior lighting made it hard to see outside due to interior reflection on window at sunset.
I was pleasantly surprised when having lunch here. I wasn’t expecting the amazing view of the beach. It was a cold day & it made me feel warm & comfortable inside. The staff were helpful & attentive. The food was creative & delicious. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, to share the dinning experience.
The view, even on a blustery day, is spectacular. Comfortable setting and comfortable food highlighted by superb treatment of sea food.
