Pelican's Landing - Review - Williamstown

Pelican's Landing review (Williamstown) is a pleasant surprise.  Pelican's Landing is located on the waterfront in Williamstown which is perfect as you can enjoy an evening stroll and take in your surroundings.  All very nice.

I guess you could say that Pelican's Landing looks a bit like a convention centre.  However, that doesn't do it justice.  It actually feels a bit cosy and with all the happy punters inside is very welcoming.  Having lots of customers by itself improves the atmosphere.

Pelican's Landing makes a great attempt at finedining in Williamstown.  As you can see here this food looks a treat and is certainly a match for anything you will find in the city.  A prawn cocktail is a bit old school these days but they have their place.

I am a sucker for pan-fried saganaki.  I know, cholesterol off the charts but it tastes great. This is no exception and again it looks superb on the plate.  I could have this everyday if my heart let it.

Being on the waterfront it would seem a shame not to have the seafood.  Again, nothing to complain about here.  You probably aren't getting the absolute finest ingredients here but it tastes great and looks just as good.  I'm very happy and would come back for more. Remember that Pelican's Landing has very fair pricing if not some of the best for the quality of food you get.

More seafood?  Well I am virtually sitting right on the waterfront aren't I.  Anyway, it look the part on the plate.  It's about as good as you could could ever expect.  It would be nice to know that I was eating the absolute freshest seafood on the planet but I am a realist.  For the price I am paying this is superb.

Pelican's Landing also provide you with some complementary bread with olive oil.  Always a nice touch.

Is dessert really necessary after all the great food.  Too be honest not really.  Anyway, the pannacotta is kind of mainstream but still very nice.  A perfect way to finish off a very pleasant dinner.

Although I try not to do any repeat visits I know I'll be back to Pelican's Landing sometime over the next year. Check them out if you live anywhere in the Western Suburbs.  They are worth it.
