Pier Port Melbourne

After a great day roaming St Kilda, Fred, Sam and I finally made it to The Pier in Port Melbourne. We’ve been meaning to make it there for months now!

I ordered an amazing cocktail, a strawberry & chilli caipirinha. I can’t describe to you what it tastes like.. Lolly like but not sickening sweet. Cachaca, strawberries, chilli, sugar & lime. Very unusual and definitely worth a go!

Entrees were oysters (yes I adore them, leave me alone) and a cucumber and tomato salad.

The owner, who is a lovely man, suggested we order the calamari salad and the meatball pasta. He should know, right?! So of course we ordered them both to share.

For the main I had the char grilled aged eye fillet, Sammy had the pan fried barramundi and Fred admitted food overload (our third meal out that day) and stuck to the sides!

I think I ate half the the meatball pasta on my own. It was not what I expected, it was a thousand times better. Beef meatballs with orecchiette, kale & pinenuts. Give it a whirl!

My steak was perfectly rare and the owner sent over a bottle of Pinot noir (Rabbit Ranch) that washed it all down just nicely. We had a lovely and attentive server too.

These pictures aren’t great, but their website is! Check is out HERE.
