Steamers Bar & Grill

We have had many enjoyable evenings here. The meals are delicious with locally sourced ingredients therefore the menu changes seasonally. We love the special menu which must be ordered before 7pm at a fixed price. It is a three course menu with four choices for each category. Great decor and right on City Beach. Parking available
Great food, coffee and ambience.

Tasty coffee & delicious pastries. My recommendation is the Almond Croissant. I have tried many from all over the world, including Lune in Fitzroy where I waited in a queue, but these are better in my opinion. Kino, Doon and Davo are passionate about their coffee.

One of the best beaches on the coast. Perfect when there is a North Easterly wind blowing. Great waves!!! Beautiful golden sands, patrolled beach with great views as well. Port pool on the eastern end of the beach is perfect for lap swimming and a great cafe for after your swim.
