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 and intrigued by Alma's contemporary take on South American specialities. For some Italian comfort fare, head to Lipari, a local favourite.

Delight your tastebuds with exquisitely prepared dishes championing the best local and sustainable produce at award-winning Geelong restaurants such as Tulip and Felix.

If you're in the mood for something extraordinary, book in for a three-course French fine dining experience at La Cachette Bistrot, winner of a chef's hat and finalist for Best Regional Restaurant in the Good Food Guide 2024.

Going provincial

Turn towards coastal Queenscliff and head straight to the harbour for a delicious meal paired with ocean views at 360Q. Pick from a menu loaded with seasonal fare at Noble Rot, paired with the perfect bottle of plonk.

Hit the Moorabool Valley Taste Trail, stopping at Clyde Park Vineyard & Bistro for a drop of excellent local wine and European-style eats or pop into a great winery restaurant on the Bellarine Taste Trail, like Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant or Jack Rabbit Vineyard, and settle in for an evening of outstanding wine-matched seasonal fare.
