Food & Beverage


Whether you’re looking for a peaceful place to enjoy a wine over lunch or a romantic setting to indulge in a more traditional dining experience, Sandringham Yacht Club is the perfect destination.

SYC offers an international catering team famous for Asian-fusion cuisine, taking inspiration particularly from Japan. While we may be listed as Modern Australian, our menu has been designed with a passion for balanced flavours, offering a personal interpretation of Executive Chef Kol Gemmell’s favourite Japanese experiences, where he was exposed to a diverse range of food experiences in people’s homes, on the streets, in restaurants and of course, in his own restaurant kitchens.

The menus at SYC draws on Gemmell’s years spent working throughout Japan, sophisticated menus present only the freshest seafood, local produce and organic ingredients, featuring a wide variety of unique and original dishes inspired by a combination of various regional cuisines with new ideas. Intimate bursts of flavour for the start of the meal to set the stage, and at the end of the meal for reflection, our menu emphasises freshness, presentation and above all, flavour.

Continually delighting both members and visitors alike with a culinary experience they fondly remember, the Harbour View Restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, using only the best and market fresh ingredients to create delicious experiences at affordable prices while enjoying the relaxed, stylish dining room setting with unrivalled panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay, the SYC marina and the Sandringham harbour.

Special events are held throughout the year such as, a Japanese Feast, Seafood Cook off, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival events and of course, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
