Six Keys Restaurant matches their supreme Beaumaris location with some sublime food calling on Mediterranean, modern Australian and other influences. In fact, come to think of it, the menu at this local favourite on Keys Street far surpasses the ocean views you get just down the end of the road, and looking at your plate you may quickly forget that you’re parked at one of southeastern Melbourne’s prime locations. Whatever the occasion, whether a casual bite or a leisurely romantic affair, Six Keys Restaurant and their array of tastes and textures are bound to fit the bill.
Bayside locals probably don’t want to spread the word too far and bring even more diners than are already making a beeline from Melbourne directly to Six Keys Restaurant, but it’s really hard to keep this Beaumaris gem a secret. As good as its prime location on Keys Street is, Six Keys Restaurant is much more revered for the food. That’s no surprise once you see the spread of impressive European, modern Australian and international cuisine they consistently roll out. Given the carousel of creative specials that spins through Six Keys Restaurant, it’s hard to say exactly what will tempt you when you visit, but you can safely assume it will be memorable.
Just a few things to tempt and tease before heading to Keys Street include cider-roasted pork belly, duck and plum gyoza dumplings, pressed lamb shoulder, grass-fed Scotch fillet with wilted spinach and mushroom coustillont, apple tarte tatin with fig & anise ice cream and a slew of cocktails, fine European wines and quality Australian beers ideal in hand as the sun goes down. If you’re looking for a perfect dining spot on the way to or from Mornington Peninsula from Melbourne, we strongly suggest booking a table because you won’t be the only one with this Beaumaris jewel on your radar.
Lovely food, great wait-staff and cosy atmosphere. I always enjoy the beautiful home made paté. The calamari was delicious and my friend's steak was perfectly cooked. This is a regular venue for me as it is always reliably good.
A really lovely atmosphere with great food. We really enjoyed our evening and would recommend the restaurant to others. We will definitely go there again
Service was good. We didn't feel rushed and were able to take our time. Food was excellent, everything tasted great. If there was a criticism it would be that there could be more choice on the menu, but we all managed to find something we really liked and it all tasted good.
