Mr Hobson Overview

The stunning water views over Melbourne’s Hobson’s Bay are undeniably spectacular from Mr Hobson’s sharp, crisp dining room, ideal for an evening of indulgence under reflective city lights. Visual stimulation has been created with a modern raw timber bar, while black pendent lamps blend seamlessly with floor-to-ceiling windows facing the sparkling water beyond. Mr Hobson’s offers a Mod Oz menu inspired by international flavours, as seen in tasting plates like the slow cooked lamb cigars, with pickled cucumber, lemon yoghurt and crumbed walnuts. Mains are equally as impressive with options of braised beef cheek, confit carrots, field mushrooms, pomme mousseline and braised reduction; or perhaps the crispy skin salmon fillet with potato croquette, leek asparagus and cauliflower puree.

A few words from Mr Hobson

Port Melbourne adjoins the Melbourne CBD. Within a 10 minute drive from the City of Melbourne, Mr Hobson provides ocean-side dining in an environment that suits everyone.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day of the week, the convenience also extends in its varied menu choices and price range. With entrees under $20 and even mains starting from under $20 going all the way up to $160 for Mr Hobson's iconic seafood tower, everyone's budget and taste is accommodated.

Inside, the setting is beautifully modern with the following sections, which again, are all geared to make everyone feel welcomed.

The bar is modern and adequately lit to keep a modern gastro-pub vibe. With high bar stools at the bar and in the open area of the bar, there is a flat-screen TV above just to keep the sports fanatics in the loop about the progressive scores whilst mingling with friends.

The restaurant has a home lounge-room feel - with varying colour schemes, including the changing sky and ocean tone as the backdrop, Mr Hobson excels in providing amazing cuisine in a stunning, relaxed and welcoming environment.

Adjoining the restaurant is a modern-cafe section - slightly brighter with a more 'casual' feel, it is parallel to Mr Hobson's alfresco section, just outside, by the water.

The menu provides a very extensive list of choices ranging from: starter to share plates, to entrees & light meals, mains, salads, sides and decadent desserts! See the menu link for an indication of recent menus at Mr Hobson - (there may be slight variations as the menu is frequently tweaked).
