Tried this excellent dish at La Bimba along the Main dining Street at Apollo Bay, it was indeed excellent and did not disappoint! This dish is sufficiently good for 2 to share, full of freshness of seafood with mussels, fish chunks, prawns, squid and sausages, the rice is very flavourful and everything blended really well for a good meal and...

There is no shortage of breakfast options in Apollo Bay but we chose La Bimba for no reason other than it is on the first floor and therefore offered a view. We weren't disappointed. A good menu offered a wide range of breakfast options at good value and the coffee was excellent. The service was very friendly and our dishes... More

We had a selection of food including fish, seafood paella and mussels. Easily the best seafood I have had anywhere in my travels. The mussels were to die for. And the view...omg the view.

Great restaurant. We sat by the window on an average temperature night but thwe feeling of looking out was lovely. We had a shared fish plate with lots of spices and stuffed with cous cous and it was very tasty. The side of beetroot Apple and mint was amazing.

Good to find this place amongst the choices at Apollo Bay. Emphasis on seafood dishes - mulloway dish was a treat with pippis and peas. Calamari and king prawns were adequate but the bettroot and walnut salad side was a real treat. Good wine list too - recommended. A little tip - its about time they reprinted their menus, its...

Every course was amazing! From the mushroom dumpling to the slow cooked pork that melted in the mouth to all the fish options to the pain perdu for dessert. Plus the potato sides were delicious as well. Yummo. Staff were super friendly and service at the appropriate pace. We'll definitely go back.

It is hard to rate this restaurant. I will start with the good. Aged steak was good. My wife was very happy with her fish and Oyster. Then we come to the problems. As I was designated driver, all I wanted was a light beer. None available. I ordered the SA King Prawns ... now comes the burnt fingers story.... More
