Great food

Great food, beautiful view, friendly staff. Had a great meal here whilst travelling the great Ocean road, we were seated quickly even though we were a large party. Accommodated our special requests and changes to the brunch, and food was delicious. Only down side was that our vegan friend was told... read more

I was rapt with my meal I had! Entree right through to Dessert! All well presented, fresh and delicious!! Soft shell crab tacos were on point! The service was terrific and very friendly. It's a must when you come to Warrnambool!

Wandered in on a very cold and wet afternoon. The staff were so friendly, the wine choices were excellent and the view was supurb. Great warm and cozy atmosphere on a freezing cold and wet day.

Had lunch with my daughter and grandsons very disappointed with my meal chicken ravioli which was on the specials.The meal was very small looked more like an entree size and all I could taste was salt could not distinguished any other flavours seemed very oily also. Price of my main was $26. Not value for money.

Had a late afternoon coffee and cheesecake watching the bay and boats - very pleasant. Seating indoors was warm when it was cold and windy outside.

I always judge a restaurant/cafe by a number of things. This time I went for lunch with a few friends - we each ordered different things so it was pretty easy to form a view. One ordered the Burger sliders - the comment was 'OK, but they were rather tasteless and the pork was tough'. According to the menu this... More

One of the only places open in town on Good Friday for a meal. They were about to close at two but because they were so busy they kept the kitchen open longer. Good on you! A big dining room up a flight of stairs (there is a stairlift) with a glass wall overlooking the sea. An honest pub grub... More

My family and I visited Simon's and while some of the staff were quite polite, the owners/managers were not. In particular, the male manager was quite rude, aggressive and really made the experience unpleasant. I cannot comment on the food but I just think that the manner in which you manage a situation shows character. If you are reading this... More

Had a meal here with friends while waiting for the start of the Flagstaff Hill light show. Had intended to go to the sailing club but it closed at 5:00pm. This restaurant had an interesting menu with all meals we chose being of a high standard. Good selection of wines and beers and attentive service. The view of the ocean... More

I have been here twice to eat since I have moved over from the UK in January, and haven't been disappointed on either occasion. The first time was with my partner for lunch and we were lucky to get a table as it was extremely busy. The second time was again with my partner and 2 other couples for dinner.... More
