Morgan’s Sorrento brings Melbourne-cool to the Mornington Peninsula

If beachside drinks, sun-soaked lunches and coastal vibes are your thing, then Morgan’s, is for you.

The huge establishment down by the water and dock of the Queenscliff Ferry is the Mornington Peninsula’s newest restaurant, wine bar and dining room that caters to all kinds of needs.

Complete with sweeping views of Port Philip Bay, Morgan’s is open-fronted, al fresco dining with a welcoming vibe and open doors that run its entire length. If anything, there’s no reason to not go in.

With cocktail in hand, enjoying Morgan’s is easy and at only about an hour-and-a-half drive from Melbourne CBD, it’s worth the drive.

Morgan’s is the latest project by Melbourne developer, Steller and ex-Melbourne pub man, Julian Gerner, who packed-up shop in the big smoke and took it coastal, bringing the best of his experiences in running the Royal Saxon (Richmond), Newmarket (St Kilda) and Prince (Fitzroy Street), amongst others, for the holidaymakers of summer.

Morgan’s is made up of a beach shack, wine shop and ale house, with all the beach-luxe styling of a venue that knows what its doing and has found its place in a brand new scene.

Complemented by a fresh menu designed by renowned chef Dave Stewart, Morgan’s does casual and easy food, done damn well with all the flourish you want, just without the wank.

Everything from the bar is local – it’s one of the best things about Morgan’s that really sets them apart. All beers, ciders, wines they serve throughout the venue are local and really shine a light on the quality stuff that comes out of the Mornington Peninsula.

And of course, it’s all modelled in a way to complement the food that’s pumped out of the kitchen, like cape-cod inspired lobster roll, perfectly crisped calamari and fresh linguini with local mussels, prawns, scallops and vongole garlic while you dine under festoon lights and fresh white umbrellas. Add to that the staples like burgers, fried chicken, oysters, scotch fillets and everything in-between, they’ve got so many things right.

You’ll find Morgan’s Sorrento at 1/3 Esplanade, Sorrento VIC.
