Bring an appetite and discover the bountiful offerings of Phillip Island, from freshly caught seafood to al fresco dining and locally grown produce. Settle into the island lifestyle and take your pick of renowned restaurants, family-run wineries and quaint beachside cafes.
Watch the waves
Dine out by the water at The Foreshore Bar and Restaurant in Rhyll, or head to Cowes for a diverse range of choices including Japanese tapas at Youki's and fresh seafood at Harry's on the Esplanade. Cruise on to Newhaven and tuck into uniquely Australian flavours at seaside Cape Kitchen.
Winemakers and brewers
A reputation for cool climate wines with full fruit flavours makes cellar door tastings a must. Sip on a sparkling shiraz at the acclaimed Purple Hen Winery or combine local wine with live music and visual art at Phillip Island Winery. Craft brew aficionados will want to travel east to the Rusty Water Brewery for handcrafted ales and ciders.
Source seafood straight from the boat at the San Remo Fisherman's Cooperative, or catch your own at the Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm. Start the day with a brew from BeanD or fresh pastries from San Remo Bakehouse. Check out the monthly Churchill Island farmers' market and fill the boot with fresh veges, fruit and local produce, including gourmet tasties from Bassine Specialty Cheeses.
