Perhaps one of the best seafood baskets I have ever eaten, awesome fresh mussels lots of Morton bay bugs and fresh fish and calamari in a beautiful sauce Definitely a meal for two at a ridiculously cheap price! Congrats you have taken the crown from the Anchorage Resturant for the best seafood

Although the restaurant was not overly busy on the night we dined the lovely waiter had no problem with our wish to dine outside and turned on the large heaters just for us. Dinner was superb..matched by the view of the lights of the city across the water.

My husband and I dined at Pelican's Landing in January where we started with the mussels appetizer. I have to share that it was the best mussel dish we have had anywhere in the world. To put that into perspective, we have been travelling for three years visiting over 35 countries and ordering mussels wherever they are offered. Their cherry... More

Made a booking for 6 and had very high expectations. On arrival, had to push past 8-10 raucous bar patrons who had obviously been to the Grand Prix and were already on high octane. Making our way to the "Wait" section, a waiter saw us but continued to move tables and chairs. When maître d' arrived he was draw to... More

Delectable entrees of crab bruschetta and prawns "gamba" followed by a seafood platter shared between 3 of us. Deliciously complemented by Pink Lady Apple ciders. Great! Service was efficient and friendly. Suitable for all comers. Try. Enjoy!

Cycled to Williamstown and ended up at Pelican's Landing. I had the kingfish with noodle salad and my partner had the rib eye. Both really tasty and well presented. Service was friendly and unpretentious. A great find. Two for one with entertainment book.

Girls lunch by the water, and all the expectation that comes with catching up! So disappointing to order a Caesar Salad with chicken and what was served was half an iceberg lettuce, some bacon bits that likely came from the local supermarket, no evidence of shaved Parmesan and an almost cooked poached egg! The waitress was lovely but the very... More

Pelicans Landing has by far one of the best positions in Williamstown. Their staff are wonderful, attentive without being overbearing, cheerful and welcoming. Great selection of wines and beers. The food however was very average. Our entrees were great but the fish mains were so overcooked and dry. A specialist seafood restaurant should not be serving prime fish overcooked. We... More

We had about 30 minutes before our ferry returned to collect us so wandered up into Pelicans Landing. It was pleasant sitting on the upstairs verandah enjoying a drink whilst overlooking the jetty. The bar is well set out and staff polite and prompt with their service. They had some great local craft beer to choose from which are fantastic.... More
