We stopped off at Apollo Bay on our way down the Great Ocean Road. A beautiful scenic place to stay. We were looking for a place to have lunch and wow, did we find a great place. The Apollo Bay Hotel certainly ticks all our boxes, Australia is a very expensive country and we had been in Melbourne over a... More

Food ok but over priced for what is pub grub but totally spoiled by swarms of flies. The diners inside were all fanning themselves to try to avoid a mouth full of flies and yet those sitting outside seemed to be ok. Great service and friendly staff but that in no way compensated for the flies.

We run a wlking tour company Park Trek Walking Holidays and we love bringing our groups to the Apollo Bay Hotel. The restaurant is spacious, you can enjoy a drink outside overlooking the Apollo Bay harbour and the food is very good value for money. Service is prompt and while the place attracts a crowd, it never seems stuffy or... More

Veges at the bistro were great but not hot enough. 'Roast turkey' was obviously sliced turkey from the closest woollies or Coles deli! I was expecting roast turkey as advertised

We booked a one night stay (Monday night) so we could have a couple of days at Apollo Bay. At 10:00 am the owner knocks on the door and asked us to check out. I asked him for a little later check out and he told me NO. I told him that we didn't get in until late and we... More

The place was very busy but our meals arrived on time and were very good. The service was good and they have cool outdoor cover and uncovered deck areas. It is slightly on the expensive side considering they don't come to your table for you to order food and drinks.

We had dinner there on a Monday night and it was great. The meals were nicely cooked and presented and also were well priced. The staff were pleasant and helpfull and the general atmosphere was as expected. Overall a pleasant experience and we would certainly eat there again.

I didn't realise they had my kitchen rules-toddler edition. Waited well over an hour for meals and when they arrived they had obviously been cooking the entire time from when we ordered. I've never seen so many people at a bistro complaining about when their meals may or may not arrive. Extremely disappointing!

Went to the pub for our nightly meal we both had surf n turf and were more than pleased with it. The steak was perfectly coked and melted in your mouth. After the meal just a beer or 3 in the beautiful beer garden. All the staff were great, both happy and friendly.
