What the First Judges said in 2019

This elegant beach hut style restaurant has one of the most spectacular views anywhere along Victoria’s coastline, but that is only one of many reasons At the Heads is a must visit venue! The service is smart yet casual, the wine list has some lovely handpicked locals to go with the best of the regions microbreweries. A talented kitchen brigade create amazing dishes including seafoods so fresh as if they have just pulled it from the water right next to your table.  What about the kids? Take them too, they are catered for, and what better way to conclude you day with a walk up the beach.

Spectacular waterfront views. Large menu. Freshest possible seafoods. Sensational miso and carrot cured Kingfish. Sumac roasted pumpkin. Brilliant desserts. Well planned drinks list with focus on good local drops by the glass or bottle. Family friendly. A must visit eatery. Great value for money.
