This lodge had fantastic views over the southern ocean. Although priced more than previous accommodation it was well worth the visit. It was clean ,spacious room and huge bathroom with laundry facilities if needed. I cannot fault anything and would recommend just for the views. The restaurant was excellent and food was delicious.

Stayed here for 3 days. The views are fantastic especially from the restaurant. The food in the restaurant looked like its was very good. My wife loved her chicken dish but unfortunately my steak was overdone. I ordered medium rare but it was brown all the way through and as its sits on the plate pretty much by itself it... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Chris's villas set up on the hillside. Was amazing to sit on our balcony and hear the ocean and see sheep grazing beneath us. Perfect spot to relax and unwind with a scenic view. Probably the best in the area. Food was beautiful up in the restaurant with a very relax atmosphere... More

The approach to Chris's is disconcerting for the first time visitor. A steep driveway leading off a winding forest road gives way to an unsealed track snaking through the bush, making you wonder if you have taken a wrong turn and will end up toppling into a ravine. The view when you reach the restaurant is worth the journey, a... More

We had a awesome dinner here! Starters a meat plate france style, loved it😀 and the mains where good as well. The view is stunning, go there if you can. And if you are lucky you mayby spot a koala during your dinner. You can also book a room but we where here just for food.

We stayed at Beacon Point not at the villas attached to the restaurant, however it was well located a short walk away and the food was great. The emphasis is on Greek style food, but there are plenty of alternatives. It has a wonderful view to accompany the good food, and it was a real surprise to find such a... More

A lovely stop off with truly great views over the surrounding countryside that doesn't take you far off the Great Ocean Road. Try to stay in villas 6 or 8 as you have uninterrupted views through glass wall of Apollo Bay, or if the weather's warmer enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony. The food served is also exceptional,...

We stayed at the Villas next door, and it was a short walk to Chris's Restaurant. We enjoyed it so much, we came back for a second night. If you like Greek-style food, this is the place for you. There are other types of food if you don't. The Saganaki Cheese was excellent and authentic. The Moussaka that was the... More

We spent one night at Chris' as part of our trip along the Great Ocean Road. The view from our villa and the restaurant was absolutely spectacular! The restaurant serves Greek meals and our entree's and mains were incredible. Desserts were lovely too but not as nice as the other courses. Extensive wine list including some lovely Greek wines, one... More

Restaurant and accommodation high up on the hillside overlooking the Great Ocean Road just outside Apollo Bay with stunning views and great food. Stay on site or next door at slightly cheaper accommodation within walking distance. Be aware however these sites are situated on steeply unmade tracks and absolutely pitch black at night. Worth getting a taxi from Apollo Bay... More
