There's nothing better than fish and chips at the beach but unfortunately for Williamstown there's nothing WORSE than a trip to Rotunda. This is the rudest service that I have ever encountered. The staff can't even be bothered smiling when they serve you and worst of all they threw my change on the counter instead of placing it in my... More

Simple set up. Easy quick snacks by the beach. Went for ice creams with the kids. Decent small selection that's convenient. There's also quick hot food and drinks. Best for treats not a wholesome meal option. Great we are always visiting.

We sat near the window to ensure a view of the beach. We were greeted by a very quiet lady who took our order very quickly. Our pancakes arrived and tasted lovely. I had the maple syrup and vanilla ice cream and my partner had the strawberry pancakes. We were both happy. Having been here before and enjoyed the meal,... More

Whether you're outside in the sun, or inside out of the wind this is a great place for a coffee. Coffee's good. Tea - multiple options. Cake, food, all as you'd expect. The bonus is the view & a chance for a beach walk.

The Rotunda is located in park lands opposite the Cafe strip in Williamstown's Hobson Bay. The area is great for picnics and plain relaxing with Ocean views. There are plenty of activities around the area and the view of Melbourne City is pretty cool, also.

We popped in for a snack and cool drink on a hot day. Welcome was warm, restaurant airy and inviting, seating comfortable. The view is wonderful. Our order arrived quickly and we all agreed it was delicious! What a great place on the beach to return to whenever we visit. Superb!

One of the most unique restaurants in Melbourne! Based on a beautiful original old music rotunda on the beach front with 360 degrees views, yes it's one of the smallest restaurants but hey! It's on a music stand! This place is a true romantic place for a couple or and intimate group. I ordered the risotto which I am very... More

We ate here on 15th Feb 2015. The restaurant was quite empty and quiet. We both ordered the vegetarian pizza as we don't eat meat. We were served promptly and I must say, without any doubt this was one of the best pizzas we had ever eaten. The vegetables were fresh with plenty of cheese to add flavour. The pizza... More

I was there this morning. The restaurant was quiet compared to the next door. However, the service was good and the waitress was so nice☺️. I have been in Williamstown for ages and am very impressed with the service downstairs, especially the coffee. You cannot take the takeaway food to dine upstairs as upstairs is the restaurant. Restaurant has its... More
