    This Melboune institution has been at the top of the list for many years for a reason. A fresh seasonal menu served a a charming home style atmosphere is simply sublime. The beach locale is tops.

    Very attentive service and a varied menu - go with the seasonal recommendations - unlikely to disappoint. Lovely mariner's theme to the waiting area.

    Presidents Cup golfer (and Melbourne native) Geoff Ogilvy shares this tip: "Right on the water, Donovans a must-go when visiting Melbourne. I always order fish."

    Most restaurants do a t-bone steak with chips and salad, or linguini marinara. Very few do them this well. Donovan's walks the fine line between high-end and comfort food with delectably good taste.

    If you're after a nice dinner then don't look past Donovans - a David Hussey favourite!

    Great lunch venue overlooking the bay. The "Four Tastes" entree was very yummy. A top notch restaurant without being stuffy!
