I dine in the Vista Restaurant quite often seeing as I come to Apollo Bay regularly from Melbourne and I have to say I am shocked by some of the reviews here and want to show my support for a fabulous and (pretty rare) quality seafood restaurant. I have tried an assortment of dishes from the menu, the food is always impeccable and cannot be faulted.
Finding fault with the size of the portions... I have to say, check before you dine! This is FINE DINING, stick to the pubs if you want quantity and not quality. Have to say I've never left hungry so am baffled by that! Complaining about prices, this is Australia! I'm not a local and am fully aware how expensive EVERYWHERE is in Australia now, have you seen prices in other local cafes and restaurants in town and across Australia? Get real! Seafood comes at a cost especially in Australia and this is the ONLY place you can expect to walk away happy. I'd suggest hitting the supermarket or a pizza joint if those are your complaints. Check the quality and cost of a similar meal in your own town and see what the difference is!
The seafood linguini, the snapper, the Barramundi...the **Seafood Platter**! If you don't fancy fish I recently had the steak...wow. It is all exceptional, even the coffee is gorgeous! The service is top notch and there's always a friendly smile and nod from behind the scenes too.
The fact of the matter is if you find fault with your dinner you should let them know straight away so they can rectify! It's really not fair to rock up on here with your thoughts when you haven't let them know adequately!
Every time I have been here (twice in the last month alone!) I've been surrounded by happy diners who always seem to leave satisfied, unfortunately there's a lack of these people showing their support here so here's mine!
Great food, great service...GREAT RESTAURANT!
