Port 53 Restaurant

2-10 Radcliffe St, Echuca 3564

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!

First dinner at a restaurant post iso with my husband and 2 kids. Excellent service from the staff and amazing food and cocktails. I don’t like the tables being separated, but it’s not their fault. We will be back

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

The staff should advise that you need a side dish with the small main serves. Otherwise it’s great to be back at our favourite restaurant

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 :)

I thought the food was very good, as was the service. The well-intentioned waitresses asked us 4 or 5 times "how's things guys" or words to that effect, when once would have been enough. Otherwise a very enjoyable experience.

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.
