100 GREAT OCEAN ROAD, ANGLESEA 5263 2454; CAPTAINMOONLITE.COM.AU
There’s so much to love about Captain Moonlite that it’s hard to know where to start. That it’s a low-key gem hidden in the Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club gets the heart started, while its million-buck view takes the tempo up. The fact two pros are looking after you – Gemma Gange out front and chef Matt Germanchis (ex-pei Modern) – means that view isn’t doing all the heavy lifting.
While a Euro influence shines through the menu, such staples as fish and chips and house-made ice cream are done with Germanchis’ cheffy edge. ■ Must-eat dish Slow-roasted lamb ■ Cuisine European ■ Chef Matt Germanchis ■ Price $ ■ Bookings Yes ■ Open Breakfast & lunch Fri-mon; dinner Thu-sun ■ Instagram @captain_moonlite
