My wife & I came here for lunch back in April to celebrate our 46th. Wedding anniversary. We were certainly not disappointed, the food, service & outstanding views were first class! We have been here once before but will try to come more often as...More

The views both from the villas & restaurant are to die for. We felt that the service over dinner could have been better given the price point. Dips & entree being served first and bread rolls coming after for example. Menu selection at dinner was...More

My husband is a big foodie person, complete contrast to me, and as a wedding anniversary treat he wanted to try the highly recommended restaurant Chris's Beacon Point (recommendations mainly word of mouth from friends & clients). The restaurant is on the more expensive side,...More

Lunched here with friends after the Great Ocean Road half marathon. Great food, attentive service, decent wine list and amazing views out to the ocean. Reasonably priced. We had a fantastic meal. Recommended

We have been to this restaurant a few times in the past 5 years and our most recent visit was disappointing. The menu seemed different and had less fresh fish options, which is what you expect when you are so close to the ocean.

Remote from Apollo Bay the restaurant sit above the GOR on Skenes Creek Rd. Watch for the sings it might be missed. The restaurant is large inside, two levels and serves up very fresh fish. Service is excellent. They have some options for vegetarians.

Chris's restaurant not only has delicious food, great service and a special ambiance - the setting high on a hill overlooking the amazing Great Ocean Road coastline was very special. The building is constructed so that it captures all of the view.

This was one of our favourite restaurants. We always recommended it to friends as a destination eatery that couldn't be missed. Not any more. The setting is still great and the service good. Food was very average. Tasteless and no depth to the dishes. My...More

Hi Christine, Apologies, but we just stayed as guests and ate at the restaurant (which was outstanding!). Maybe contact them directly? Kind regards Colin Sanctuary
