Too easy.

Haven't been - menu is a bit fussy for mine. Haven't heard anything bad though, a few glowing reports, a few "pretty goods". Worth a gamble if pig's face and cucumber foam are your bag.

Ok stuff that its in Collingwood which is a bit far for me on a weeknight. I have to take the missus out for a romantic dinner for valentines day. Can anyone suggest a decent restaurant between say Frankytown and the city or south to Portsea that meets the following criteria..
1. Must be romantic, Thats the number one criteria or shes gonna come home, take off the lingerie and slip into her trackies and thats a mood killer for sure. ;)

2. Must serve decent beer. Not a huge range of craft beer or shes going to think Ive taken her there for the beer only. "You only picked this place because of the beer it serves" Another mood killer. (They must serve stout, porters or brown ales because thats all she seems to drink ATM)

3. A decent price. I dont mind spending a bit but dont want a place that charges $100 for a main.

4. Seafoods a winner so is tapas, Thai and Italian. 5. Bonus points for the closer to Frankston it is otherwise i run the risk of her falling asleep on the way home and then there will be no "relations" at all. She'll be too tired and cranky. ;)

I've been, and I thought it was nothing short of amazing. The beer list is a thing of beauty. My Melbourne based brother spent from 2:30 to 6 sampling beers, then were joined by our partners for dinner, which we let the waiters match beer for. Left at about 11. The waiters were incredibly knowledgeable about beer, recognized fellow beer nerds and were happy to let us hang out for an extended period of time. Can't remember the final bill, but I can remember being pleasantly surprised at how much it cost.
That was about 2 years ago, so it may have changes since then.

It certainly looks ok. Might go to the wild earth wild beer do they're having for the food and wine festival in March.

Nothing like a view of the water to get the, umm, waters flowing, so to speak. Although, I gotta say, you're leaving it a bit late if you want to get a reservation anywhere.

I confirmed with my wife last week that, once again, we shan't be assisting in financially buoying the Hallmark/Cadbury annual sales harvest.

hit her with the old "valentines day is just over commercialised hype, besides everyday is valentines day with you" line. It will save you a shitload of bother and you might still get a root

@warm beer...Looked at that windows on the bay but thre were a few bad reviews on Urbanspoon about it so not so sure.

@Bum...Only 2.5 years here so still got another 2.5 years to go and shes very sentemental with all that crap. If I did nothing the trackies would go on for the rest of summer.
