I accidentally ended up here after confusing it for an other place. Luckily I did not get disappointed. Took a simple plate of Lamb Sausage with fries. The lamb was well spiced but the fries stole the show. Lovely how thick, crispy yet soft and airy they were on the inside.

Thank Pierrot J

Nice setting but the service was a bit hap-hazard, other diners received their meals before us even though we had arrived and ordered before them and our drinks took a long time to arrive. I had the yabbie salad which could have had a bit more flavour and the veins hadn't been removed from the yabbies. A bit disappointing.

This place attracted us because of the name. We enjoyed every bit of our experience here. The wait staff and the owner/chef were very friendly and the food was wonderful. It is a very old building with a wonderful history, which the owner enjoyed telling us about and we enjoyed hearing. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting the... More

We visited Proudfoots for lunch with Melbourne visitors, because we had visited in a number of occasions and it was a p,easing place for a meal. It was holiday time and very busy, so more staff need to be employed to cope, as the service was poor. The meal, when we eventually received it was very average, with one meal... More

We rang all around town to find somewhere that offered a fresh seafood platter. Finally Proudfoots could make it happen! They brought the seafood in fresh for our request!! The food was delicious and the view was beautiful. Service was also very attentive and friendly. Would go there again tomorrow!

We came for a late dinner at dusk on a hot night. The setting was tranquil and the inside of the restaurant full of history about the area and the boat shed. The food was great. Some of the best fish and chips I've ever eaten and the calamari, had by my son, was as fresh as can be and... More

What an amazing sight to dine too! Our group had a fabulous lunch and service was fantastic! Each serving was huge and delicious. We wanted to order something that was unavailable at the time (fresh fish) as it wasn't delivered on time, we went with something else... but to our surprise the lovely chef hand delivers to our table a...

Sitting on the deck surrounded by water is tranquil, calm setting to have lunch. The service is instant and friendly. The menu has a variety of dishes, local fish from Portland, seafood marinara, wallaby, steaks , lamb, chicken and lunch specials. Very tasty and satisfying. The prices are very affordable and they have a decent drinks menu. If you like... More

Stopped by on our trip down the Great Ocean Road. Firstly the view is incredible, overlooking a gorgeous lake ...on a sunny day it's absolute perfection. We are vegetarian so were pleasantly surprised to see lots of options on the menu. Portions are huge so you are really getting value for money. Highly recommend the veg risotto- delicious. The ice...
