battered fish served w/ salted chips
Dromana Bay Mussels
tossed w/ a tomato, white wine & chilli sauce served w/ crusty bread
We tried to call about six times during the day to book a table with friends who had already booked and the phone went straight to message bank. We travelled an hour to come here for dinner and our booking was for 1830. When we ordered from the website half the menu was already sold out which was disappointing as we came specifically for the seafood dishes.
After placing an order for the calamari we were told there was none left and to pick something else. Instead we got a pizza. Our side of chips from the original order took 40 mins to come out after asking after the food multiple times.
Disappointing to travel so far and barely have any food options. Fortunately the staff were lovely and apologetic.
Perhaps a phone call or email to tell people half the menu is sold out would be courteous.
Superb! Hands down best family friendly restaurant on the Mornington Peninsula. Highly recommend.
Excellent food, beautiful view and amazing venue. A must visit if you can get a table!
Great service from the welcome at arrival through to seating a delivery of food. Awesome QR setup which works like a charm. Thank you!
The Portsea Hotel was great... lovely atmosphere, lovely people... everything worked really well. Always good.
The food is as expected from a known restaurant.
However the price is quite expensive
We had a lovely lunch at the Portsea Hotel, for my birthday. The staff were friendly and helpful and greeted me with birthday wishes. I had requested a table at the window, overlooking the water and that is exactly where we were seated.
We used the QR code on our table to order and pay for our drinks and meals - which was something new and novel to us - but worked perfectly in these Covid times. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad and my partner had the Portsea Burger. The meals were lovely and I can definitely recommend eating here.
Pizza was great but disappointed about the service
Quick service amazing good and a great view. Would definitely recommend
Lovely outlook on the water
But the food was very average which was disappointing considering it’s such a nice place
A very picturesque setting and very well made food.
It was a beautiful setting . Expensive for a steak and snitzel. The salad was a bit bland and the pepper sauce was watery and weird tasting. Service was fine. An ok pub meal.
Great place to enjoy a meal with spectacular views
Great quality food and atmosphere was lovely. Good value for money.
One of our favourite place to go to and never seems to disappoint!
Great service, food, drinks and views
So glad we got to spend our Monday arvo here
Amazing we had the best night here and food was incredible
We were left at the “wait here to be seated” stand whilst staff walked passed us to greet their mates and just pretended we didn’t exist. Luckily another staff members mates arrived too and after he had already walked passed us twice we were then awkwardly taken to our table. Total inconvenience it appears. Our sparkling wine was flat, our salmon was tasteless and appeared to have been soaked in water to appear fresh. No oyster forks for our oysters and just an overall unpleasant vibe.
We had a fairly good night.. staff were friendly and attentive. I was eager to see the pub after renovations.. hadn’t been there for a while.
My husband enjoyed his food, I was a little disappointed with mine .. a mussel pasta dish.. not the best.
But overall it was a good night finished off with an espresso martini- delicious!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, Jenny. We're glad you enjoyed your visit, and hope next time we can improve your experience even further!
Excellent service and very attentive staff. When my coeliac daughter ordered a steak with the butter sauce, the waitress quickly came over before she ate it to let us know the sauce contained gluten. They quickly prepared another meal for her. We were very impressed. Thank you 😊
Thanks for taking the time to leave such a fantastic review, Trechelle! We're glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon!
The manager out the back Restuarant - possibly Ben, was in a very bad mood. He was very in accomodating, quite short and rude.
When I left I mentioned something to a staff member who said yes he is not happy tonight. Not good on a lot of levels
Wonderful ambiance and setting. Menu was a little limited but enough to enjoy. Food was pretty good but dessert Icecream was poor and overpriced.
Very surprised No coffee available. Probably will not return for this reason.
Service was friendly and helpful.
Wait staff was good but bar and concierge service was borderline cold and rude.
Food was good, service was terrible. No coffee/tea available and entrees came out with mains.
Service was poor, waited 30 mins for drinks. Queried the delay as it was quiet. Lady went to investigate, apparently there was a printer error but she failed to come back to advise. Instead we waited another 15 mins for our drinks. Our food arrived before our drinks, we were brushed off when querying the status of our drinks again. No apology.
The portsea burger was bland, very little sauce.
Pretty disappointing experience
Great place for lunch. Kids loved their kids meals. Wonderful scenery.
Thanks for the great review, Renny. We hope to see you at the pub again soon!
Great venue and service. Menu was a little limited, more seafood options please!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, Adam. We've passed on your feedback on the menu to the chefs, and we hope to see you again in the future!
Beautiful view staff lovely but food could be better.
Ceaser salad very light on bacon and croutons .
Hi Cheryl, thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We're sorry that the food wasn't at it's best for your visit and hope we can improve on this for you in the future!
Perfect terrace on a sunny day, although if your lucky enough to get a seat at the fireside in winter, also great. Friendly staff, and OK food.
Thank you for the positive review, Allan. We hope we can provide you an even better experience on your next visit to our hotel!
Great food in a unique atmosphere.
Other establishments will never have these surrounds.
food was extremely good, but would have liked to finish the night with coffee or tea which wasn't available
Hi Sharon, thank you for your review. We are working towards being able to offer tea and coffee again soon!
Lovely night at the Portsea Hotel. Pizzas and starters were delicious.
Thank you for your positive review, we hope to see you again soon!
The Portsea Pub is always a great place to meet up with friends. The meals are beautifully prepared and presented. I had pan seared fish this time, which was perfectly cooked and followed with cannoli for dessert. The cannoli were crisp and sweet and filled with ricotta and pistachios. My meal was delicious.
Hi Robyn, thanks very much for your positive review. We hope to see you again in the future!
Lovely views and service.. but very disappointing food. Everything was bland and the pizza we ordered was soggy :( Wasn’t expecting that for the price we payed for.
Hi there, we're sorry to hear that the food wasn't up to scratch on your visit. We appreciate your feedback and hope we can provide you a more enjoyable experience in the future.
Thank you for your positive review!
Amazing food and service. Would definitely recommend. Beautiful views of the ocean.
Thanks so much for your review, Carole. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food and always good service
Hi Simon, thanks for the great review. We'll see you next time!
Sunday night ,lovely and warm inside. Love the new decor, haven't been for ages.
Sirloins cooked to perfection.
Hi There, Thanks for the great review, I'd love to get some more feedback on how we can get a 5* for your next visit, Kind regards, The Portsea Team...
The food and drink options were fantastic for a pub. And the service from staff was impeccable. The ambience was excellent -- we had a glorious day when we visited. Two things I would have liked to see in the menu options were soup and coffee/tea. Almost perfect!!! Thank you for being accomodating!
Hi There, Thanks for the great review, you'll be pleased to hear we are on the road to getting a permanent coffee cart in the venue and will be able to look after you perfectly next time, and hopefully get that * back, Kind Regards, The Portsea Team....
This place goes down as my favourite pub in Australia
Hey there, Thanks for the great review... We look forward to seeing you here again and will make sure we keep up the good work , Regards, The Portsea Team!!!
