What a lovely place

Wow what a hidden gem. I needed a last minute booking and I was hesistant at first because some of the reviews were not too positive but on reading them properly I saw that many were commenting on the kiosk/cafe and not the restaurant. We had a late booking (8pm) and when we arrived there was... read more

I am actually reviewing the Cafe and not the restaurant.....This is the only listing I found for it...... The Beach House Cafe is located at the lower level of the famous and posh Beach House Restaurant. Don't let this put you off. The cafe is simple, friendly and not expensive. We went there with friends, on a beautiful end-of-summer day... More

My wife and I had a meal at The Beach House recently and on arrival we were surprised how few people were there, albeit we arrived before 7pm. The atmosphere was fantastic, over looking Eastern Beach at sunset is pretty impressive. We enjoyed a couple of drinks and then ordered a main meal each. I had the char Sui duck... More

I read once if a place has a great view the food is always terrible and this place proves it. Over complicated menu, dirty plates and get your own cutlery (God only knows where they keep the serviettes! ) Ragged chairs and unkempt outdoor pavement. Surely you can give it a quick sweep before opening. Breakfast was ordinary and overpriced,... More

First time back at the Beach House for a couple of years and was reminded how good the food was. We have probably been half a dozen times or so over the last 10 or so years and have never been disappointed. The service was good and the food spot on. We left telling ourselves we have to come more... More

We have always been happy with our meals here .. always good quality and good service and the 'deals' on offer are very good value. Six of us dined here on Valentine's night, the place was packed yet the service was good (so good to see, especially when some places never have enough staff on like .. EmpGrill ). Most... More

" There is more to being attractive than just looking good! ". My husband & I attended for an early dinner at The Beach House Café & Restaurant located on the Eastern Beach section of the Geelong Foreshore. Whilst this eatery is situated in a lovely, family friendly environment that has a wonderful atmosphere during warmer weather, the food itself... More

The location is wonderful, right on Eastern Beach.The atmosphere is relaxed, you can come straight off the beach with a sarong or towel wrapped round you and sit at a table for a drink or some lunch. There isnt a huge choice of food on the menu, but there is enough. Food is simple, fresh, really tasty, and very reasonably... More

We booked for 4 people for the first time at this restaurant. The photo shows the tables with tablecloths set out lovely, but when we went it was like sitting in a canteen. The weather was awful but that was no excuse, we had a window table with a nice view, the food was good and the service was good... More
