I have listed this all with the hotel details, but basically the breakfast staff were too interested in closing down the buffet half an hour before they should be, and dinner was over priced and over rated!

Restaurant busy with booked function meant we sat outside (enclosed area.) Got the benefit of the Corio Bay view on a beautiful day, and experienced courteous and swift service (2 course set price deal, drinks extra.) Food well presented, serving size sufficient.

She was just so happy with everything. Her friends are also still raving about the whole thing. There have been many comments on the beautiful food and presentation and they are from ladies who...

Had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent and our company consisted of some 'fussy' eaters yet all plates were emptied and no complaints were heard. Staff were attentive and friendly without going overboard. Venue is comfortable and stylish. Will definitely be going back.

The challenge: find a quality restaurant to please some steak hungry blokes, a food conscious Sheila, and a couple of just-give-me-lasagna kids. The process: scroll through reviews on trip advisor and yelp as we know nothing about dining in Geelong. The decision: Black Salt on the Esplanade in the Quality Hotel. The result: success! The rib eye is much more... More

Accommodation was clean comfortable with a good ambience. Staff we're very accommodating and I will return our group there.

My husband and I had our belated anniversary celebration lunch here over the weekend. We were lucky to have a window seat in the alfresco dining area with spectacular views over the bay. Food was delicious, wait staff were friendly and helpful. Portion size was just right, prices perhaps a little high for the portion size. We chose the 2... More

Be careful not to overeat (perhaps miss lunch beforehand). Had breakfast here numerous times and dinner once. Dinner is a little pricey but worth it.

Have just celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary with a Sunday luncheon for 24 family and friends. Restaurant Manager Chris and team went to a lot of trouble to make our lunch perfect which was most appreciated. Food, organisation and service was excellent. The outlook from the restaurant overlooking Corio Bay is lovely. Our guests all enjoyed the meal and friendly... More

Our server, Chris, was friendly and paced the meal nicely so that we could relax with our food. We very much enjoyed the chicken terrine and fish & chips on the prix fixe weekend lunch menu as well as the lovely view of the bay. However, the menu was very traditional "Aussie bistro", and the one dish that was a... More
