We’re calling it: oysters by the bay is not just a summer sport. And as we enter the chilly season, we’ve made it our mission to keep oyster consumption at an all time high – preferably eaten with a water view. To show our commitment, we’ve put together a handy little guide documenting the best oyster spots on the bay. Think bulk molluscs, fizzy wine, tantalising ingredients and some of the most beautiful scenery in Victoria.
Let’s start with an oldie but a goodie. Portsea Hotel is one of Victoria’s most iconic waterfront venues, known for its historic charm and breathtaking views. Each day, the chef handpicks the finest oysters from their morning delivery, serving them up with a fragrant sherry and fennel vignette. Order half a dozen for $24 or a dozen for $48.
Audrey’s at Continental Hotel Sorrento:
Sorrento’s grand old dame has finally reopened, boasting five new drinking and dining areas along with a luxe hotel and spa. The venue’s main restaurant, Audrey’s, is a haven for seafood lovers, featuring a menu by none other than Scott Pickett along with a hefty selection of oysters.
Overlooking bay vistas and towering Norfolk Island pines, there’s something truly special about a visit to Morgans. Oyster fans are in luck with the choice between freshly shucked Sydney Rock oysters or new style oysters ‘Kilpatrick’. Bloody Mary oysters have also been known to frequent the menu.
Located at Mornington’s peak, The Rocks is a destination for sustainably sourced seafood with a view. Oysters to start are a must, paired with a zesty lemon myrtle mignonette. Afterwards, we recommend a serve of Morton Bay Bugs and the linguini marinara.
BAYSIDE SUBURBS & INNER-CITY:
The Cerberus Beach House:
Heading further up the coastline to the picturesque bayside suburbs, The Cerberus Beach House is a Black Rock institution on the waterfront in Half Moon Bay. Secure a spot by the window and order half a dozen freshly shucked oysters with either Mignonette or Salmon Roe for just $24. It’s worth mentioning the kiosk on the ground floor does a mean fish and chips.
Baia Di Vino:
A slice of Europe in the heart of Sandringham, Baia Di Vino (which translates literally to ‘Wine Bay’) is quite possibly bayside’s most sophisticated watering hole. Take your oysters natural or with their signature Campari dressing (only $4 each) and wash them down with a glass of Taittinger Champagne.
An Elwood hot spot, this dazzling beachfront venue does some of Melbourne’s best oysters for $6.50 a pop. Pair them with a citrusy Pizzini Prosecco or coastal spritz cocktail, made with sapphire gin, Vermouth Bianco, Prosseco, Soda and Lemon.
If you’re taking the term ‘Oyster Tour’ literally, you could walk along the bay trail from Elwood Bathers to this next beachfront pit stop. A St Kilda stalwart, Captain Baxter serves up appellation oysters with shiso mignonette – a Japanese ingredient known for its refreshing flavour – as well as vibrant atmosphere and live music.
A newcomer on Albert Park Beach, Pipi’s Kiosk is a contemporary Australian seafood restaurant framed by sweeping views of the bay and city. While Pipi Shells are the main event here (the Pipis Pasta is a must-try!), we recommend starting the night with a round of Sydney Rock oysters, served with apple and celery mignonette.
