Live local, learn local, dine local


The Casuarina Student Restaurant is open for three-course lunch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with an additional lunch service to run on Thursdays throughout spring. The restaurant showcases all the Peninsula has to offer by sourcing local produce that’s cooked and served by students who work, study and reside in the region.

Chisholm trainer and chef William Harmelin says: “The meals are wholesome and reflect seasonal availability. The food is a contemporary blend of classics and modern meals; all our produce is proudly sourced locally through our partnerships with local farmers and producers.”

Restaurant chefs are either apprentices from some of the best regional Mornington Peninsula restaurants, cafés and wineries or full-time commercial cookery students on industry placement studying a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery. While the chefs run the kitchen, lunch service is provided by students studying a Certificate II or III in Hospitality specialising in front of house skills.

“Our live restaurant offers a realistic environment to showcase the talent and skills our students have developed during their course and provide them with the confidence and experience to take into industry and beyond,” William says. “Our students learn in a restaurant offering a classic setting that combines modern influences in service and food.”  

Casuarina can cater for corporate or social group functions of up to 45 people. The venue has AV equipment and venue hire is complementary when you book a function with catering. Chefs can discuss any event requirements, dates, menu options and prices.

Let Chisholm Hospitality students wine and dine you with a delicious three-course lunch service on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from noon-2pm. Bookings are essential on 5950 2000 or email [email protected]
