It will likely come as a surprise to some to know that there's a waterfront restaurant, with a Port Melbourne address, that is five kilometres from Bay Street. Pier 35 Bar & Grill really is an unexpected find, hidden away between the industrial units on Lorimer Street. Even more surprising is that it's open every day into the evening (although it is part of the d'Albora Marina which also hosts a 24-hour servo for passing boats).
Westgate Punt on a weekend ... or stopping to refuel their yacht.
