Winter comforts
Cerberus Beach Restaurant, in Black Rock in Melbourne's Bayside, has some of the most stunning views over Port Phillip Bay. It also has consistently good food that speaks of comfort, freshness and quality.

Whilst sometimes difficult to secure a booking in summer because of its location, in winter this is less of a problem. On a cold, drizzly winter evening and with no desire to cook, the slow cooked duck and ox cheeks were done to perfection and certainly hit the spot. With accompanying Asian greens and soft, potato dumplings the dishes provided the requisite comfort factor on this cold Melbourne night.

Cerberus has a special menu from Tuesday to Thursday where 2 courses with a glass of house wine cost $35 and 3 courses cost $45. On the night we ate there, this included French Onion Soup or Duck liver parfait, slow cooked ox cheek or vegetarian fried cauliflower and a choice of 2 delectable sounding desserts. A set menu is also available for larger groups.

The restaurant is also open for lunch 6 days a week and is a great place to celebrate special occasions. Of course, the views during daylight hours make it worth the drive from outside the Bayside area, but on a winter night, there is something special in looking out onto the dark water with glittering lights and the moon shining. The good food and a nice glass of a warming red wine add to the ambience and enjoyment.
