Chris's Beacon Point Restaurant and Villas

03 5237 6411

Chris's Villas offer accommodation all year round and many diners choose to stay the night after enjoying a meal and a fine wine or two.

Chris's is located high above Skenes Creek and the villas are elevated, so the impact of the ocean views is stunning. Recently renovated, the villas are contemporary and well equipped.

All of the apartments are self-contained and contemporary, with modern fittings and floor-to-ceiling windows, a balcony and a dizzying sea view. A complimentary Continental breakfast is included in the tariff.

Chris's Restaurant and Villas is an icon of the Great Ocean Road. A personal approach to hospitality has made Chris's one of the most loved places in the region and a passion for the food of Southern Europe combined with the freshest and purest produce has made the cuisine world famous.

"From the ashes of last years fire has risen a splendid new structure of glass and timber, cleverly angled and tiered to make the most of the panorama. The restaurant looks down on Skenes Creek meandering down to the Southern Ocean below, with Apollo Bay's boat harbour in the distance. Chris's food-like his hospitality- is genuine and generous." Gourmet Traveller Guide 2005.

Chris's Restaurant is operating seven days a week. From Melbourne Cup to Easter it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Out of season Chris's is open nightly for dinner at 6pm and lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. For reservations please contact the restaurant.
