Lovely at the end of the pier, so the atmosphere is always good. The food is very good although nothing has been outstanding. The service is good even when operating at full capacity.

We visited Baveras for the celebration of an 80th birthday. We had about 30 people of varying ages and we were all fully catered for. Food and service were fantastic. Would highly recommend this place on the water in Geelong.

We have dinned here several times and have enjoyed every meal here. The staff are so pleasant and have a great knowledge of the food and wine they serve. They change the menus every few weeks but keep some favorites on all the time. The desserts are to die for but then again the mains are great as well. You... More

Was my first time visit to this place as I was staying at the nearby Novotel for a few nights. The location at the end of the pier is great and the daytime view is spectacular. The person (owner?) who advised us on the food and wine did an excellent job. Maybe that was because I was invited by a... More

Booked for dinner on a Saturday night. We were greeted by the owner and taken to our table. There were 3 large bookings, however the service was excellent. The waitress took time to explain the meals, and apologised that there may be a small wait as the larger bookings had just ordered. The owner oversaw the serving of all the... More

We booked dinner here during the week one week in advance. Luckily we did when we arrived the place was fully booked. We ordered the scallops for entree, the curry beef cheek and seafood pasta. All food was very nice with good service to match. Would recommend if you want to go somewhere nice while in Geelong.
