Port 53 Restaurant

2-10 Radcliffe St, Echuca 3564
$$$ Cajun/Creole 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.

Sarah's service was amazing. And the food was just as good. We are very happy we found Port53. And we are already planning our next trip back to Echuca to eat here again. The Barramundi and warm potato salad, the beef tacos and fried chicken were all scrumptious.

Absolutely excellent service. The waiter was incredibly professional. Controlled the restaurant and all the guests in the most professional way. Couldn’t be more impressed. His ability to make the best tasting Long Island ice tea we’ve ever had will keep us coming back. The food was also exceptional quality! Great experience. We are locals and have under utilised this gem

Amazing food and friendly service. The only recommendation for improvement is that the staff should learn to spot glasses that are 95% to 100% empty and to ask patrons if they want a second drink to improve your profit margin. We weren't the only table to wait approximately 15 minutes to catch the eyes of the staff to ask for a second drink.
