“Best Calamari Salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

They serve the best calamari salad I have ever eaten. Not cut in rings, not over cooked, not floured, great taste light chilli garlic, not dry, right amount of dressing. I don't live in Geelong so I will be back to order this again here one day soon. The antipasta plate was great too Definitely recommend this place for lunch/brunch.

“Food and service both good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Sailors Rest has a good wide menu and a more than suitable wine list. Service is effective and efficient, and the food is well presented. Overall a most pleasant place to eat

“Not recommended - appalled and disgusted with attitude of their waiter”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Rude waiter who was arrogant and wanted us to eat in an hour. When we turned and said no thanks, he said good luck finding another restaurant. And we did just that, fine dining at a Thai place down the road.

Dropped in for breakfast after a friend recommended it.. Most enjoyable. Nice to sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a delicious meal. We would certainly go back again.
