I had a terrible experience here the other day. I was out with friends and we had an incredibly rude waitress. the food was not as good as it was the other time I had been here either. Never again.

We were walk up diners at Baveras on Easter Monday lunch service, not a problem. It was bustling, people everywhere. Service was good considering it was packed, we waited 5 minutes while they re-dressed a table. We both ordered the flathead with house made tartare sauce. It was fresh, the batter light and the flathead divine. If you're in Geelong,... More

i was here a week ago in a group of 14 women for Dinner. Service is appalling, we were the only people in the restaurant apart from 2 other couples and we waited almost half an hour before being given water to drink. We waited almost another half hour before our drinks order was taken. Finally we were asked if... More

Both times we've been we were walk-ins for lunch and we managed to nab a window seat (de rigeur!) Walking along the pier we were delighted with large squid just below the water's surface. It's a pleasant stroll or you can drive right onto the pier up to the front door easily. The manager Paul W is an absolute asset... More

His place has views that r just beautiful across the water. But the rest is variable. Service is good with one person and begrudging with another. Squid dish is lovely while chicken is ok. Best thing tho is views across the water to feeling.

We were offered drinks promptly when arriving. Food came out after only a short wait and was presented well enjoyed by all. Wait staff were easily obtainable without hovering around you. The only small cons were no steak knives were offered and I had an stringing red garnish on my beef cheek which got caught in my throat but was... More

We had a reunion on 18th March at this restaurant. There were 5 of us. We arrived at 11.30, and placed our orders by 12.15. There were not many other people at all - I guess because it was mid week ( or because of the service?). By 1.30 we were asking where our meals were. The quality of the... More

We recently had a birthday party for 14 people and it was fantastic. Great food, good atmosphere and very friendly service. We will certainly be back.
