No Oysters

A solid country restaurant which was very popular on the Saturday night we went. Good risotto with Lobster... Alas ran out of the oysters we wanted to try. The single waiter works his butt off keeping everyone happy. Reasonable price

We've been going to Breakers once or twice a year for 12-15 years when we visit from Melbourne. Last time was Oct 2014. Western districts beef - fantastic steaks, cooked 'blue' or 'rare' to perfection! Seafood - the oysters are the best - and presented in a range of styles - but natural are the stand-out for me!

Could not fault this place. We wanted seafood and they delivered. Seafood was fresh and cooked just right. Meal size was sufficient, especially if you have an entree or dessert. Waitress was friendly and service good. The atmosphere was cosy.

Excellent customer service from the new-bee waitress - her first night on the job! We enjoyed our meal and the interaction between Ms New-bee. Yummy seafood, and that's what we came here for. A little pricey, for size of meal. We'd go back again. Good work, Breakers!

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we thought we would give Breakers a try. Our experience was average. The service was fine, good wine list and warm and friendly atmosphere but if this is the best seafood in Warranambool we are in no hurry to try the others. We had the seafood platter which was of pub standard.

Very comfortable little restaurant hidden behind a Tudor style frontage... Very impressive service, polite courteous and prompt! Food consisted of succulent oysters and scallops followed by an array of seafood delights... Seafood heaven with an atmosphere of ambience and comfort! Business or romance this place is a must...........

Noted as the "best seafood in warrnambool " the food is overpriced and quality in mediocre at best. A disappointing experience. Avoid the precooked risotto, and the seafood spring rolls filled with potatoe stuffing , and dried chicken breast , Italian style? The duck confit was devoid of flavour. Most dishes were served on a bed of lettuce, but even... More

I went to this restaurant on Good Friday for dinner and was disappointed firstly with large bones found in the fish risotto and secondly the way the staff and owner treated us when we queried the problem. The owner who is also the the Chef fogged it off as if it wasn't a big deal. An apology and a refund... More
