Albert & Co

in Lakes Entrance

Bringing some urban style to the Esplanade is this diner doing a menu of modern breakfasts, local seafood and Gippsland steaks. The front bar is perfect for a pre-dinner tipple, offering cocktails, Gippsland wines and Lakes Entrance craft beers; happy hour runs from 4pm to 6pm ($12 cocktails).

It shares space with Bellevue on the Lakes, so the bar is open daily.
