Supported by Port Phillip’s rich fishing waters, the seafood restaurants in Carlton benefit from the same fresh markets that support our historic South Melbourne market. With such a strong confluence of cultures in Melbourne, all kinds of cuisine present their very best catch of the day!
80 percent of the seafood available in Melbourne comes from local commercial fishermen along Apollo Bay, Grippsland, Port Fairy, and Portland. Unfortunately Port Phillip has been closed to commercial fishing for almost two years, but that does not affect the quality of the seafood. The Melbourne Market is still as vibrant as ever, providing fresh fish to all the seafood restaurants in Carlton.
Seafood restaurants in Carlton usually serve seafood in white wine, cream, or oil-based sauces. Creamy mushroom, white wine garlic, and deep-fried baskets give dishes their rich flavor and yummy crunch. If you are in the mood for the rich texture of linguine and scallops drizzled with a white whine sauce or perfectly fried fish and chips the seafood restaurants in Carlton have you covered. Check out local specialty dishes below.
Pan Fried Prawns
A premier main course, these tiger prawns are pan-fried in creamy garlic sauce and bedded with jasmine rice with a salad on the side. These prawns are massive, meaning you succulent bites with each spoonful!
Blue Grenadier with fish souvlaki on the side
With a delicate and sweet flavor, blue grenadier is one of the many differentce kinds of fried fish offered at the local seafood restaurants in Carlton. They also have flake, hake, salmon, rainbow trout, flounder, and more.

This dish is a true Aussie delicacy: butterflied King George Whiting served with Sicilian crumb and salmoriglio. For Mediterranean and Italian seafood lovers, this dish is perfect.
