Description: The Central Hotel, located on the waterfront of Victoria's Gippsland Lakes, is in the center of town. Enjoy a meal in our bistro which specialises in fresh local seafood and local produce. A regular feature for lunch is the 'Parma & Pot' for only $17.50 in the bar is always popular. We serve local gummy shark with a crispy beer batter and crunchy chips for lunch & dinner so if its great fish n chips your after you are in the right place! During the colder months, relax with a glass of red wine by the original open fireplace. In summer enjoy the view from our alfresco outdoor area and if your lucky catch a glimpse of our ever popular dolphins passing by!

“Great meal.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Central Hotel served up the most delicious, mouth watering and tasty Porterhouse steak along with delicious mashed potato and some well cooked veg. Definitely a great meal at a good price!

“Happy customers - young & old!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Family friendly restaurant. Friendly and fast service for a fairly busy Friday night. Staff were all smiling and efficient. Delicious and well priced food. Good selection of meal choices to suit everyone. I had seafood which was super fresh and very tasty. My partner had green curry fish - fragrant and delicious. Kids were happy with their dinners too. Clean plates all round! Compliments to the chef!

“Good service”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We had a meal here in January on a fairly quiet weeknight. The service was great and there was plenty of choice on the menu. All meals were very reasonably priced. We would certainly eat here again.

“Great meal and views”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We had drinks in the lounge first and took in the great view, and then went into the restaurant for dinner.
My husband had the flathead tails and I had the sausages.
Both meals were amazing, and great value.
