Overview

Restaurants

Celebrate the local harvest and sample the best of local growers and artisanal producers on a culinary journey through Geelong and the Bellarine. Revel in the flavours of the region at hatted restaurants, friendly local eateries and cosy country pubs. Soak up sweeping views of Port Phillip Bay, explore the cosmopolitan city centre or enjoy a slow lunch out in the vineyards and experience a region overflowing with creativity and natural beauty.

Global flavours, modern inflections
Find the world at your doorstep in Geelong. Be charmed by refined French classics, awakened by aromatic Thai and Indian cuisine or tuck into traditional Italian fare at Lipari, a local favourite.

Get your tastebuds going at Geelong's Black Salt restaurant with its flavour-packed menu championing local fresh produce. And if you're in the mood for something out of the ordinary, take a walk down to Ryan Place for an evening at Igni, named Regional Restaurant of the Year by The Age Good Food Guide. There's no menu to peruse, just a chat with the friendly staff before Chef Aaron Turner puts together a bespoke banquet just for you. Matched wines? Yes, please.

Cafe society

Duck into a buzzing Geelong lunch spot, grab a latte down at the waterfront, or linger over a slow breakfast at a cafe on the peninsula with sweeping coastal views. Travel from the city to the sea and out into the hinterland to find an array of cafes offering seasonal menus packed with regional delights, from mussels to cheeses and freshly picked berries.

Regional hits
Sample the best of the region's produce at the Peninsula's celebrated restaurants. Book a table at the hatted Gladioli for an exciting menu brimming with bold flavours and fresh local produce. Or pop into one of the many great winery restaurants on the Bellarine Taste Trail, such as Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant or Jack Rabbit Vineyard, and settle in for an evening of outstanding wine-matched seasonal fare.

Quintessential Queenscliff

Step into the Vue Grand, on a charming historic property, for a taste of old-world grandeur and beautifully composed dishes. For something truly special, opt for their tasting menu matched with local wine.
