One of the best Warrnambool has to offer!

Warrnambool.. The beachside town I grew up around. Never had much care for the area and left home at 18 only to return now at 27 to visit family and had the privilege of visiting Simon's for lunch. On parking and approaching the building the outside is dated and ugly but that soon changes the... read more

I have already reviewed Simons back in March and gave it a good review then 4/5, but I had to do another review after my meal here on Friday night, as it was absolutely gorgeous. Everything about it was perfect. My partner treated me to a meal here for my birthday, and he couldn't of taken me anywhere better. I... More

Old review from december 2014. We went December 2014. Rude staff, wrong orders, cold and nasty food. I would not recommend.

This restaurant was recommended by the nearby holiday park where we were staying (walking distance) and we weren't disappointed. Lovely food, wonderful service in a great location, right on the beach.

Comfortable surrounds including sofas and an open fire. We lingered watching the waves and surfers out of the huge ocean facing windows.

Wow, what a lovely surprise. Just had a wonderful dinner with 6 friends at Simon's and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The ribs for starters were so tender and delicious, my fish & chips were yum. Finished off with chocolate fondant with a little surprise twist that was scrumptious. Service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend. Can't wait to... More

This place has great views across the lady Bay. It is a pity the service and coffee/cakes don't rate as high. 7 of us went for coffee and cakes for afternoon tea last month, the guy serving us had no idea what the cakes in the cabinet were, the coffee took ages to come out and then they got the...

Great food (love their Seafood Chowder). The view is very special of the Lady Bay of Warrnambool. Friendly and great staff. There is a flight of stairs to climb before entering restaurant. In winter in evening, perhaps do not choose to sit beside window as the cool of the evening against the glass can be uncomfortable (cool).

Our most popular dish is the Seafood Chowder! And testament to our chef, we always have great feedback on this dish. I am so glad you took the time to experience our signature dish. I will certainly take note of the coolness that comes off our large expansive windows of a night and make sure we stay nice and cosy... More

We went to Simon's and were greeted with a warm welcome and seated in the window overlooking the floodlit beachfront. Our meals were absolutely beautiful, and well priced for the quality. We were served promptly also. I can't say anything bad about our experience, and will be back again when we visit Warrnambool next.
