Welcome to the Beach House

The Cerberus Beach House is one of a select few true beachfront restaurants in Melbourne. Tucked away in the quiet seclusion of Half Moon Bay, surrounded by the gorgeous Red Bluff cliffs, and overlooking the historic shipwreck of HMVS Cerberus with views over the water to the city, the view and the venue are truly unique. While the amazing view and location attract first time visitors, it is the warm and friendly service and the quality and diversity of its modern Australian seasonal menu, locally sourced where possible, that brings them back.

Downstairs the kiosk serves fish and chips on the beach, consistently rated amongst Melbourne’s top ten fish and chips destinations, while the Herald Sun recently reviewed the restaurant upstairs as “top food & views ­ without the hefty bill”.Open for lunch & dinner 7 days a week throughout summer, and Tuesday-Sunday the rest of the year.


The Beach House is just a few minutes’ drive from Black Rock, off Beach Road. Turn into car parks B14/B15 at 250 Beach Road. Reference: Melways 85,H2.
