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 The pictures are extremely outdated so I provided some of my own.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

This place had been around forever, centre of the Main Street so has a good market share of passing trade and tourist action. I bet the locals don't bother. Food was ok and a good variety, it was a long weekend so it should be fresh as high turnover not stale sitting around waiting for customers. It has restaraunt and... More

The restaurant looks welcoming and the service is just ok (don't bother to smile to customers). We ate naked fish and chips. Just the fish and the chips, like seriously? No mayo, no sauce, or salad, or at least a slice of tomato. and $1 for the sauce? Just unacceptable if u have to pay for the sauce. And it's... More

Sick and tired of restaurant owners like this, there are plenty in Apollo bay and it spoils the place completely!! Virtually 70 percent of tourist businesses are run by people with NO IDEA about customer service or food prep!! As usual we went away for a relaxing weekend with friends and ended up in this place. It looks welcoming, then... More
