Three awesome Gippsland seafood restaurants to try in 2022
Seafood restaurants you should visit in Gippsland.
The waters of Gippsland are rich in seafood and the coastline is dotted with small fishing fleets. From there the boats head out to fish along the coastline and in the deeper water of Bass Strait. The fishers target species such as scallops, lobster, sardines, whiting and flathead. You can pack an esky, travel along the coast and buy lobster, known locally as crayfish, from the fishers at San Remo, from the Cripps Family at Port Franklin and at the Lake Entrance Fishermen's Co-op.
From water to waiter, beachside and lakeside restaurants and eateries serve up all kinds of local seafood catch, dine on local seafood in Gippsland
If you'd prefer a professional to cook your seafood, head to one of Gippsland's specialist seafood restaurants. Chef Nick Mahlook, formerly of The Atlantic at Crown, has Sodafish, a floating restaurant moored next to the Lake Entrance fishing fleet.
He literally walks from the kitchen, takes the fish straight from the boats and starts preparing them for the next service. Expect scallops grilled with finely sliced cured pork, ceviche of seasonal white fish and the most exquisitely fresh pan-fried John Dory.
Capture the stunning sunsets and salty sea air, in a laid back, casual dining offer that explores and features some of the regions finest produce and wine
Down on the Lakes at Paynesville Chef Mark Briggs at Sardine transforms the lesser loved duckfish with the Japanese flavours of shiso, ponzu and edamame into a sublime tartare or puts fleshy morsels of spanner crab with chili and parsley through freshly made bucatini.
His skill is consummate, hand fileting sardines into delicately meaty morsels seasoned with smoked garlic and pickled onions. With a view out over the yachts moored to the jetty, a brilliant wine list and a casual wine bar next door Sardine has been recognised by the critics as one of the best seafood restaurants in the nation.
Sardine CANTINA is a wine bar and store; serving wine, cheese, charcuterie and conservas from Victorian producers and across the globe
Port Albert Wildfish
Down past Wilsons Prom, in the historic harbour of Port Albert is Wildfish. It's a casual dining room with stunning views over the water and a hyper local menu and wine list.
Owner Michael Hobson is one of the port's sustainable fishermen and puts sweet little fish like garfish on the menu. Expect scallops in brown butter or leatherjacket ceviche with finger lime and coriander.
Seasonally-inspired seafood dishes front the menu at Port Albert's Wildfish, where culinary innovation and high-quality produce are the driving force behind this picturesque location
