    Try Mornington Peninsula's seafood restaurants

    You're never far from the sea on the Mornington Peninsula, lapped as it is by the waters of Port Phillip Bay on one side and Western Port Bay on the other. Coastal villages like the picturesque cliff-top settlement of Flinders are the perfect places to tuck into some succulent catch of the day. Dotted along the sandy beaches and quiet coves of Mornington Peninsula are many restaurants serving outstanding seafood. There's nothing like working up an appetite with a walk along the shore, then sitting down to a plate of fiery oysters Kilpatrick, a popular Aussie dish that comes with a kick of Worcestershire sauce and a topping of grilled bacon. After that, you might like to hook yourself some pan-seared John Dory, a fillet of sea needle garnished with herbs or a chunky flat head tail served in beer batter with handmade chips. Or if your taste runs to pasta, Mornington Peninsula restaurants are usually good for a lip-smacking seafood linguine.
