Disappointing

Very interesting menu, lots of selection but once we got our meals they failed to live up to expectation. Excellent wine selection. Service really let the resturant down. Male waiter was rude and could probably leave the eye rolling at home. Overall experience was disappointing. I would not... read more

Realizing this is a surf life savers club, I expected fish and ships at best. I could not have been more wrong; friendly staff, steaks made to perfection, extensive wine list and staggering views. Highly recommended.

The service was a little on the slow side but was easy to forgive when the view was so amazing. We went there for dinner...the staff were very friendly and attentive and we were lucky enough to have a corner table so could fully take in the view . If dinning here I suggest dinner before sunset so to compleatly... More

We had brunch here. The food was excellent and great service. Nice beach views. I would recommend Simon's for brunch. The restaurant is a little noisy and it was only 1/4 full.

I am not sure if they have changed hands or just listen to peoples opinions but they have definitely improved over the years. This is my second review from 2013 when I recently went there which has been twice now since my 2013 review they definitely have improved. As I said before you can not beat this place for the...

We have been very well adviced by the waiters on beers and food, had the sliders burgers that were delicious and sat outisde, admiring the view of the ocean. We asked for a snack until the food was ready, and the waiter had no problems with it and gave us a big and delicious snack to wait till the food... More

Simon's undoubtedly has Warrnambool's best restaurant view. All year round the bay makes for a spectacular ever changing outlook. The staff are friendly and the food never disappoints.

Certainly the best real estate in Australia has ver. Snaffled by the surf clubs. Simons is the top deck of the Warrnambool surf life saving club and hits the mark perfectly. Casual but good quality. Friendly service and a stunner of a view

This has a concreted balcony the size of a 1/2 basketball court with a direct view to the ocean and Warrnambool wall. Didn't eat but menu looked awesome in the middle to high end eating. Had beers on the balcony and they had a singer and guitar play that was enjoyable and relaxing. Sunny and 28 helps but a great... More

I stopped for a solo lunch while visiting Warrnambool recently. Simon's is ideally located along the Lake Pertobe precinct and has ocean views and a useful boardwalk and walking track nearby. The food was very nice indeed and was washed down with a tasty glass of wine. Service is also very good and the waitress remembered me when I returned... More
