Stayed the night in the water tank room following a awesome tasting menu. Great service all the way from arrival to departure after a great breakfast at Mr Grubb

We dined as a group of 7, enjoying main and dessert. All the dishes were very well executed. The Oakdene sparkling was delicious

Dinner for two at a beautiful location, relaxed dinning with second to none service. A dinning experience that has to be one of the best on the Bellarine.

Chose this establishment based on other reviews and was not disappointed. We took a 6.30pm booking but this did not mean we had to be out by 8pm for the second sitting. Meet by friendly staff and shown to a lovely table in the terrace which meant we were looking at some greenery outside. Ordered a couple of glasses of... More

We dined here for our wedding anniversary in January. The food was to die for! I can highly recommend the calamari entree and fish special of barramundi, when they have it. My husband enjoyed the duck confit. Oak dense wines are excellent. Making the night special was our waitress, Fiona, who was knowledgable about the food and gave great advice... More

We visited this restaurant for my wife's birthday, and could not have been more pleased with our choice. The service was friendly, relaxed and impeccable. The food was stunning and the surroundings unique. This would have to be the best restaurant on the Bellarine Peninsula, if not in all of the Geelong area.

I am a fan of the William shiraz, so thought a meal here might be good too. What a surprise. It's been 10 years since we were wowed with such lovely food locally. The granita oysters were amazing, as was the perfectly cooked eggplant, a mouth watering combination of flavors especially the dukka. For mains, the octopus was delightful. The... More

This is a fantastic place to lunch with plenty to see and an interesting building. The service was excellent and the food was decent however a little expensive for what it was. We had the BBQ octopus which was basically octopus with potato salad which was nice but not for $36.
