In nearby Melbourne, one of Australia’s foodie cities, you can find pretty much any type of cuisine you’re hankering for. And Brighton can certainly compete with its bigger brother. Its wealth of restaurants serve everything from perfectly simple Sicilian dishes to hearty Australian delicacies.
Given its coastal location, Brighton boasts seafood that ranks among the world's best. Vivace on Bay Street puts an Australian twist on Italian fare, creating delicious offerings such as prawn linguine and mouthwatering Tasmanian scallops with pancetta.
If you’ve come to Brighton for the food, you'll need to try a classic kangaroo steak. An excellent source of protein and iron, grilled kangaroo is not only a national favourite but is also surprisingly healthy.
A favourite among the locals is Middle Brighton Baths, where you can enjoy a delicate barramundi dish with a view of the Melbourne skyline. The venue that has been a meeting point for hungry Brightonians since 1881.
