I had dinner here recently, the fish was really nice. The restaurant is very cosy and reasonable priced. Just charging $2 for a bread roll was a bit odd.

Service was good but food let this place down. Was recommended to us for a good seafood restaurant but disappointed. Crayfish spring rolls too oily, market fish ok but best thing on plate was beans. Seafood platter too bulked up by fries but oysters and prawns were good. Semifreddo for dessert was great. All in all expected more.

Did have the pleasure of dining at this fantastic restaurant in Warrnambool and the menu list is mouth watering with exquisite variety. personally had the barramundi and this compared with the best anywhere across Australia. Service was brilliant throughout the evening and staff waited on our table with excellence.

We were at Breakers restaurant on Sat 30th May. I was saddened to see some negative reviews for this restaurant. The restaurant was quite busy but The waitress was very efficient and polite and informed us that there was a slight wait for meals. The meals were well worth the short wait. They were cooked to perfection and my husband... More

This place does not deserve the title of restaurant. The service is ordinary, the wait unbelievable and the food disgraceful. I thought eating out was supposed to be a pleasant experience?

Rod, I am flabbergasted, I arrived back to work after 2 weeks annual leave on Monday, to your review on the previous Saturday night. I am personally appalled to think that you waited so long for your meal. I was informed by the staff working that night that there was only 1 chef, and 1 waitress working due to 2... More

This joint is a disgrace. awful food and service. We waited for an hour and a half for a seafood platter that wasn't anywhere near worth the money. McDonald's up the street would be a much better option

Very quiet and pleasant surroundings, good service and perfectly cooked meals. We would definitely eat here again. Being attached to the motel helps as well.

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!

Sorry Rodger about the local water, unfortunately it has fluoride in it which does nothing for the taste. Great to see you enjoy our little restaurant so much. 22 years and counting for me More
