6 of us celebrated a 50th birthday.... we were so well looked after by our waiter and the food was unbelievable - we had the $75 taster meals... everything was delicious and gave us a chance to try that maybe we wouldn’t have chosen. We...loved absolutely EVERYTHINGMore

Thanks to Sebastians for a wonderful meal pack for 2 which was delicious. Cost was very reasonable and we were able to add a couple of pinxos items to the order. Highlyrecommended.

We are in COVID-19 second wave lockdown, so we took the “Sebastian at Home” option. Delicious meal. Food was great; presentation was thoughtful, including a link to the Sebastian in-house Spotify soundtrack to make your stay-at-home dining experience complete! Look forward to visiting again when...they reopen.More

Superb food, attentive service. A fine dining experience.... simple salad, cauliflower and grilled whole flathead. Delicate flavours complimented by tasty wine ... Maybe and Sparkling. The sunshine and bay views were a bonus

My partner and I dined out for the second time since Covid-19 restrictions eased and weren't disappointed by the service or food at our favourite local restaurant. We were particularly impressed with the service provided by Chris and Andrea. As always, the food was delicious.

Sensational Northern Spain cuisine, around San Sebastián hence the name. We went with very high expectations and we were not disappointed. Stunning decor with comfy booth seating along the back. Service was sublime from start to finish! The food was exquisite, and all beautifully styled...and presented. Standout dishes included Barbecued Eggplant, Croqueta, Christorra (spicy sausage), Smoked Chicken, smokey rump steak. And the sensational Coal-roasted Pumpkin. Great location overlooking a beautiful beach and a wonderful terrace for sunset drinks (unfortunately the day we were there it rained) Can not wait to return to Sebastian- highly recommend!More

Excellent tapas style food with quite a wide variety of selections to choose from. Friendly and helpful staff and service was very quick. Enjoyable experience and will look forward to a return visit when next I’m on town.

Last night we were invited to dine at Sebastian Beach Grill and Bar in the heritage listed Bathing Pravilion. In advance we checked the reviews and wondered how the evening would play out given some of the criticisms of this restaurant. Well I'm here to...say that this was without doubt one of the best experiences we've had in Melbourne and we dine out quite a bit. Five Stars on every aspect of the evening: the service was immediate from the moment we arrive, fun and hospitable without being intrucive, we were more than happy to thank our host waiter as he did a grand job looking after our respective needs. Food was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. Every course was fantastic and we each wanted to try the other's as they all looked and taste so good. Plates seemed to evaporate once we'd used them and the next course arrived punctually. Wine was delicious, four different styles for the evening and each outstanding. The restaurant was spotless, table cleaned between courses and despite being full, it wasn't unduly noisy. We were able to have an intimate dinner with friends in the best of circumstances and we'd recommend it to anyone else if the food, service and hospitality remains this excellent.More

I've not seen dogs on the patio, however there is some limited seating on the sand level (just below the patio) and I believe dogs are ok there as it is outside the building.

Yes - Williamstown Beach. Outside on the deck would be best if weather permits
