Waves is in the perfect location, set on the beach at Frankston and looking out over the Bay. Just stunning! We enjoyed a blissful light lunch with a glass of wine. The staff were bright, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

The food was delicious, great ambiance in the restaurant. Right on the beach, plenty of parking. The staff are friendly and professional, we were a group of 10 and they even allowed us to pay separately with no qualms. Will go back again!

Hi Liza - thanks for your question. The dress code is casual - the only rule is that you cannot be shoeless and must wear a top i.e. no swimwear, men topless in board shorts etc... Cheers - Nathan
