Looks can be deceiving. The pizzas are amazing (thin crust, delicious toppings, perfectly cooked) and the coffees are great. The owners/managers are always friendly and welcoming even on closing.

Appollo Bay is a holiday destination. I guess the fact that an Ice-Cream shop is rated #1 restaurant in Apollo Bay says something about reviews in holiday spots. The restaurant side of this business has an extensive menu which is a plus. The service was adequate and the people serving us were obviously backpackers. They were able to undertake the... More

Cannot comment in the food because we gave up waiting for service and walked out. Despite two waitresses walking right past us we seemed invisible to them. Our efforts to get their attention were in vain. Wont be back.

I feel sick just writing this and remembering. Do not step inside here. Better off going to the IGA and buying a chocolate bar for dinner. The food was disgusting and actually was cooked by the food court takeaway place next door, which is hilarious. You're paying restaurant prices and eating food court food. Nothing wrong with waitstaff they can't... More

had a lovely meal. 3 of us ordered a different main course and each of us was impressed. Very quick service and plenty on plates. Very tasty. None of us had room for dessert. Plenty of choice, something for everyone.

The worst food I've ever eaten. Paid $20 for a chicken parma that was horrible, thought I'd eat the salad instead but even that was drowning in dressing and couldn't taste anything else, the chips had an after taste of dirty oil, I couldn't eat it. My friends also ate bolognese and fish and chips and were equally disappointed. Bolognese... More

Had a terrible meal, got ill shortly afterwards. It liked ok from the outside, we were incorrectly working on the basis that most places would serve decent food on the GOR due to the competition and being told Apollo Bay was a great place to stay. Food was mediocre at best and both of us were terribly ill the next... More

Rude old woman at the restaurant who took our breakfast order.. Messed up the order. No customer service skills at all. Food is average and we didn't get what we ordered. Way over priced. Shocking rude staff. Do not go there! Bakery down the road was packed with customers... Says it all!

I ordered 4 x family pizzas; The Lot, Souvlaki, Neapolitan and Marguerita. They were huge! Not like typical Italian wood fire pizzas or Pizza Hut or Eagle Boys! These were fresh and HUGE! Dough was fantastic, it's was thin and not at all soggy! Very enjoyable feed. Great service - served by a friendly guy who spoke highly of Apollo... More

This is my first ever negative review. I think the only decent reviews here are from the owner. The pictures are extremely outdated so I provided some of my own. We ordered 4 medium pizzas and 4 cans of soft drink for $74, what a rip off! Pizza was extremely salty with raw dough. I wouldn't even stop here for... More
