Ponyfish Island (Melbourne CBD, VIC)

Recommended by a friend and Melbournite, Ponyfish Island is a casual cafe bar located right on the waters.  Located down a flight of stairs right off of Elizabeth Street, this waterfront bar is the perfect place to lounge both during the day and at night.  We were lucky, as it was a relatively warm April night to sit out on the waters at night.  The only downside was that the lighting was so dark, it was hard to see the haloumi sanger (sandwich) and quesadillas we were munching on.

We arrived after sunset, so it really was dark and calming, but I could definitely see it being a great place during the day too.  I didn't have anything to drink here, but the food was decent.  The haloumi sandwich (10) had a nice thick haloumi steak inside, and quite good.  The quesadillas (13) were just decent.  The flavors were there, but it wasn't anything special.

I would definitely recommend this place - especially as a tourist spot - but also as a casual hangout for friends looking for a quieter place to lounge in the city.  Also, for those who like wine over beer, this is the spot!
