The service, ambience, food and wine list all stack up well to provide one of the very best foodie experiences in Geelong and district. Presentation is excellent, and is matched by quality, and it is all accompanied by friendly efficient service at all times.

My husband and I visited with quite high expectations and we weren't let down. Service was excellent: the service you would expect at a fine dining establishment, attentive without being obtrusive. I didn't need to ask for anything. Water and drinks as needed, time between courses perfect. As for the food, amazing, delicious and more than we expected. We ordered... More

We ate dinner here on a quiet Monday, for $93 (after a 25% discount for staying in the motel next door). The service was very attentive. We had a salmon meal and a steak; the meals were well presented and very tasty.

Atmospheric Restraunt in unlikely location slightly dated but with a touch of south Yarra decor. Excellent service and very well presented meal with good steaks on offer. Desserts looked tempting but another Occassion awaits those !

We love this this place, it's been in Geelong forever and there is a reason for that. Great food and great staff. Interested to know who Webster is? He is highly critical of Geelong and most Geelong restaurants?
