A Guide to the Best Dining Spots in Sorrento, Victoria

You’ve planned out your Mornington Peninsula holiday or weekend getaway to the nth degree. You’ve picked the best accommodation (a stay at an Ocean Blue listing, of course), the most scenic hiking trails, the most fun activities and the finest wineries.

And then, your belly starts to rumble.

Choosing somewhere to eat is almost as difficult as planning the itinerary for your entire trip. Especially when you’re as spoilt for choice as you are in Sorrento.

Don’t stress – we’ve got you. Here’s your local guide to the best dining spots in Sorrento, Victoria:


  • The Rasoi Sorrento
    Sorrento’s favourite spot for hole-in-the-wall, authentic Indian cuisine. Serving all of your classic Indian dishes like kormas and roganjoshes, The Rasoi is one of our top places for lunch, open from 12pm every day.
  • The Sorrento Social Café
    Calling all hipsters! You know you can get smashed avo outside of Fitzroy, right? The Sorrento Social has got you covered for brekkie and brunch staples, and it’s one of the town’s most vibrant spots from morning til early arvo.

Pub grub

  • Hotel Sorrento
    This revered watering hole is Sorrento’s best for upscale pub food. Serving classics like fish and chips, calamari, steaks and pastas, the Hotel Sorrento never disappoints.
  • Sorrento Portsea RSL Club
    Nobody does it better than a regional RSL. The welcoming, family atmosphere, the good, honest food and the good, honest beer on tap – this is what the Sorrento Portsea RSL Club is all about.

    As far as pub grub goes, this RSL has got its own twist, with tasty and authentic Thai food as its main fare. Dim sim and a beer? Can’t say no to that.

Something special

  • Loquat x Voodoo Lounge
    Modern Australian in the chicest of settings. Loquat, the restaurant, is bound to impress with its array of fancy, flavourful dishes like barramundi, beef shin pappardelle and slow cooked pork belly. Then, pop upstairs to the Voodoo Lounge for the Mornington Peninsula’s best cocktails, hands down.
  • Bistro Elba
