We stumbled across this excellent restaurant by accident. What a fabulous place we had the mussels and the steak. The service was second to none. We sat outside on the terrace looking over the grassy green towards the bay. Honestly, you could be anywhere in Europe. Relaxed, friendly, engaging with good, no fuss, food and exemplary service. Much better than sitting on the walkway watching cars going by! A must try next time you’re in Geelong. I haven’t had such a relaxed enjoyable lunch for a long, long time.

Customs House was a pleasant surprise! We popped in for a quick bite and had a produce platter and coffee. The produce platter was excellent value - 3 delicious cheeses, lavosh and crackers, prosciutto, smoked salmon, capers, sundried tomatoes AND olives. The building is beautiful and overlooks a lawn and the waterfront.

The service was extremely polished and friendly and there were lots of high end touches like the cheese being closer to room temperature rather than frozen rock hard and thicker napkins.

The atmosphere was lovely and a nice change from the large and loud groups of people in the near by bars and restaurants.

We had no expectations and left very full and relaxed. Great value for money and a wonderful atmosphere! Will definitely return when we are in the area.

Enjoyed the setting, the food was good and the service was equally good. The staff were very friendly. Steak was more rear and medium rear, the kangaroo was yum and the seafood gumbo is massive! Good luck.

Had lunch today at Customs house restaurant at the Geelong water front. Often over looked because of the other eatery's on the esplanade. But well worth the 50 m walk to the entrance from the lawned area. Staff were great and very accomodating, but the food was the winner..... we had a steak sandwich and the Caesar salad with calamari, both were excellent. Price is very reasonable. We sat out side and it was pleasant and relaxing without the noise of some of the eateries on the waterfront. We like to be able to hear each other without screaming. Ticked all our boxes recommend you give it a go.

We chanced across the Customs House and we were so glad we did. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful facade of the building and outdoor space. The service, food, wine and music were very, very good. There was such a beautiful atmosphere that we were in no hurry to leave. Thank you. Wishing you every success
