Port 53 Restaurant

2-10 Radcliffe St, Echuca 3564

$50 - $75 Recommended New Editor's Pick View Outdoor Seating

Our philosophy has always been to use the best local ingredients to showcase what the region has to offer. Port 53 is a true harbor of local food, boutique wines, top-shelf spirits, and craft beers. Chef-owner Adam Mitchell, with help from his dedicated team, has worked hard to create a restaurant that appeals to everyone with a fantastic range of food and beverages and positioned in a great location. Adam’s aim was to create a restaurant that he and his family would enjoy dining at themselves, and he has achieved that in spades. Adam trained in classical French Cuisine whilst at William Angliss Institute in the 90s, and later followed his wife Rebecca back to Canada. Adam gravitated towards a love for the French Creole-Cajun style of food whilst working in a Creole inspired restaurant in Saskatoon Canada. Canada has a shaded history with Cajun cuisine through the deportation of the French Arcadians from Canada to Louisiana in the 1700s, and this vibrant past still has an influence in Canada’s cuisine today. Like the Creole and Cajun culture itself, Port 53 uses what is seasonably available to create soul food that is both comforting and exciting at the same time. Signature dishes include a spicy ‘low-country boil’ along with a selection of chargrilled local meats accompanied with delicious sauces and spice blends. Port 53 offers a unique industrial-chic atmosphere with a décor of local memorabilia. Port 53 is a true example of Creole and Cajun culture by utilizing local and regional foods and cooking them with love.

Thanks so much to the lovely waiter that went out of their way to make my solo dinner enjoyable! It was raining and I was due to sit on the footpath but he moved me under cover at the front door. The food was great, I had chicken and waffles for dinner and the waffle was a bit lackluster, chicken a bit dry and not enough syrup but the rest of the food was amazing! Would definitely return and hope to sit indoors next time.

Everything was lovely except the set 2 or 3 course option on the menu. I don't always want 2 courses and found that because I couldn't have just a main with perhaps a slighty bigger choice of sides, disappointing. Other than that, again, lovely!

Port 53 fantastic as always love the service , the people Food etc . Only one thing this time I was disappointed was that At the seafood buffet when we went up to have a serving of the baked fish we where both given a piece of fish the size of 20c piece . When I went back up to try again no one was serving the fish and the lids where closed so I wasn’t sure what to do . In hindsight I should have asked but it was very busy . I’ll add though the fish was and tasted spectacular Overall all very fresh and tasty although ( and I understand this is just pure bad luck and not anyone’s fault ) one of the lobster tales we had was off and we couldn’t eat it but I know this is just an accident and impossible to know Overall still a fantastic and magnificent place with the best food and service . Will be back Thank you

Excellent dining option in Echuca - great food and cocktails! We really love this restaurant and keep going back. The ambience isn't as great right now, as it has been in the past - as they can only have a certain number of people and the tables are so spaced apart because of Covid. But I recommend this restaurant as of the 'fancier' ones in the area

Food and drinks were amazing. Staff very friendly, just a bit too much being asked by everyone walking past how it was going. One staff member checking in would be sufficient. Bit let down watching/hearing some gossiping from staff. Quiet evening, your voices travel. But overall very nice environment and amazing food inc price :)

Food was good, though limited choices due to COVID menu I guess. Fair portions, though perhaps meals should have had larger sides included. Set pricing on this occasion meant you ordered 2-3 courses each whether you wanted it or not.

I had the buttermilk chicken southern fried on waffles. The chicken was a little dry and had to ask for more maple syrup as such. Lemon tart is the best yummy yummy
