Loved the location, flexibility and strong communication when planning the event. Ann Marie was responsive, accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The food compromised of canapes, substantials, dessert and woodfired pizzas - all which I could not fault.

We had my sisters hens at Frontside Food and Wine and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Anne truly went above and beyond to ensure the day was a success! From the moment we arrived, Anne was organised and dedicated to making the day special. Everything was prepared and ready on time, leaving nothing for us to worry about! The catering and drinks were delicious and perfectly aligned with our schedule for the day. I was super impressed by her attentiveness throughout the day and she made sure everyone always had a full glass and was fed! The venue itself was great, lovely aesthetic, and the perfect sized space for our group of 20-30 people. Overall, I couldn’t recommend this venue more for anyone looking for a fantastic place to have a special occasion. Thanks Anne, for making my sisters hens party and unforgettable experience :) xx

I held my bridal shower here and I honestly couldn’t recommend this place enough. Everything was absolutely amazing. It was everything I could have expected and more. Ann was absolutely amazing and so where all the staff on the night. They all ensured I had an absolutely amazing night and everything was stress free. The venue was amazing, aswell as the food and drinks. You’re really getting what your paying for. I can’t say Thankyou enough for ensuring I had the perfect night

A fantastic little venue in the quiet area of Port Melbourne, presents very well especially at night when the lights come on. The food was delicious, we ordered canapés, wood fired pizzas and a platter which fed our group of 60 well. But what made the night was the outstanding service of the staff led by the wonderful Ann Marie, she truly made sure that everyone was well looked after and we had a fantastic night
