Fresh contemporary restaurant with good food and good service

We had a great night with a large group of people and it was a great setting. Not only was a large group easily accommodated, but the relaxed atmosphere and great service made for a great night. Nothing against Cameron Ling (a guy no one could begrudge), but the life size cut starring at us... read more

Had coffees outside in the garden area on a hot day, 33. Pleasant shaded balcony was ideal, with sea breezes. There is also an outdoor sunny are for the cooler days. Good value and friendly staff.

Staff are very good and accomodating, location is truly stunning with a great little bar upstairs, we made quite a night of it. We chose the feed me option and thoroughly enjoyed every dish that came out, the manager treated us to some wine tasting and provided us with an impromptu wine experience. Loved it all, will definitely be back.

The service and meals were delicious. Definitely not a place to take the kids as its abit fancy but the kids meal was fresh grilled chicken breast and chips. Not overly expensive but they charge a public holiday surcharge which you get told as you walk in so no nasty surprise and we happily said no worries. Abit of everything... More

This is another Geelong restaurant that we go to for that special occasion. Great view, great service and great food. That's all you need.

Pleasant atmosphere with good service and good variety on the menu. Try the duck or steak both were well presented and very tasty. Quiet surrounds makes for a pleasant night.

A previous visit 12 months prior was the catalyst for our return visit. Unfortunately that incarnation has vanished into thin air. The waiting staff are now dressed in denim jeans and are desperately lacking in the finesse required of a fine dining establishment, but then again Baveras no longer fits into such a category which is a huge disappointment.

My wife and I decided as a lovely day and living in Geelong to have a nice lunch with a bay view. Rang Baveras, "window table please" - "no problem" . Nice welcome from Maitre D and straight to a window table for 2 with glorious view of Geelong Waterfront and the Bay. Menu - thought provoking,clear and interesting. Entrees... More
