    We were very disappointed with the service. Service staff were not very attentive, when we were asked for more drinks they never arrived. The place was very loud, it was difficult to hear the people at my table. I understood there was a function/group, however was not a great experience. Food was good, but was expensive for what we had.

    When we arrived, the place looked really nice with the view of East Beach out the windows. Since we were there early, one of our party couldn't see with full sun in her face, so I had to sit tall enough to create shade from the opposite side of our round table. Had had the seasoned corn cob, which was good but we all thought $12 for half a ear of corn was a bit much. Perhaps if it had been a full ear of corn it might have been more reasonable, but the option for that was an additional $6, making it $18. Just seemed a bit much for a side plate. The $23 calamari was tough, dry and pretty hard to enjoy and a little on the skimpy side to call it an entre. On the $42 item share menu, the barramundi was ordered and while it was enough for one person, it a little stringy but with the curry seasoning, was at least tasty. The service was good and the staff friendly enough. After we arrived, I'm sure that the overly loud celebration group that descended on this venue (which has no real sound handling, considering the concrete floors and hard walls/roof), changed the intimate dining atmosphere into one of a screaming club scene. Perhaps we should have ordered something different and I'm sure that this place is mostly selling the view, but we will all most likely find another place to eat that has menu items that come up to value of that which is charged. There are a lot of places around Geelong that offer better cuisine in the same price range. A couple hundred dollars later, we left still hungry so went back home and put together a nice charcuterie board to finish off.

    Very good food, although expensive for what it was. Decor doesn’t match the food menu at all - white beach / coastal theme with olive trees (??) whilst serving Asian inspired dishes.

    I had the falafel salad which was way too dry and despite the menu description being for a variety of accompanying elements, the quinoa salad dominated and was disappointingly dry and tasteless. Meals are not cheap and should be of a more memorable standard. Disappointing. We had to order via QR code due to short staffing however the attending staff we did interact with were very friendly and accommodating. The setting is pleasant and I have been before and enjoyed it more on those occasions so I would give it one more try before going elsewhere in the future.

    Such a lovely location and view but food quality was poor. The positives first- coffee was great and kids omlette was good value but that's where is stopped unfortunately. Acai bowl had been pre-made and frozen, so was served as an icy chunk; not blended at all. I had to spend several minutes letting it thaw and mash it up with my spoon, then it all separated, so was a watery mess, borderline inedible! Porridge was lacking sweetness and a little bland but otherwise cooked well. Also, I understand that QR code ordering is becoming the norm now but you should at least be providing patrons with cutlery and water for the table, we had to make several trips to the front to fend for ourselves.

    Food was tasty and good value for money. However the service was poor as we were asked to moved tables three times. Food was nearly taken off the table before we were finished eating the dish. The atmosphere was lovely. Very nice ambiance.

    -“Feed me” very expensive for quality and quantity of food. -The alternative for non seafood eater meant whole table missed out on seafood option….. -Our tables were not cleared in a timely manner. -Left waiting after meal complete, no attention given from wait staff so no more drinks were ordered. -Service was quite poor to be honest

    Staff looked busy but weren’t productive, ignored us unless they were bringing food over. Weren’t around to check on an order that didn’t show up or refill the table water. Just a let down for what looked to be a really stylish vibe. Food was ok, nothing stood out from the menu and we had a table of 8 who ordered most things from the menu.

    Space and view were great. The food was pricey for the amount you got. Taste wise - it wasn’t anything exciting to warrant the price unfortunately. Service was ok, it wasn’t massively busy at the time so perhaps it was under staffed? There were times we had empty plates and glasses on the table that I had stacked as the staff were walking around but just not spotting this. There were no staff asking if we wanted refill drinks during our meal either, which was a missed opportunity given it was Father’s Day. The table next to us that was left untouched for at least 10-15 mins before the staff finally cleaned it up. Just little touches like this that make service stand out and show attention to detail. Overall it was an ok lunch, expensive and easily forgettable. It could be such a great destination - it has the bones to be, as Geelong needs places like this but it needs to step it up a bit.

    A beautiful location on a sunny day. Easy to book, and friendly staff. My food was divine, the eggs benny! Only reason this isn't a five-star review was because my friend asked for her eggs well cooked, which didn't happen. Just disappointing that we both couldn't enjoy our meals on the same level. Definitely going back though.

    Appalling service. Food -average at best. Chicken was undercooked and cold. Sent it back only for it to come back 20 mins later-yep same piece of chicken. No clearing of tables-and no it wasn’t so busy that they staff were under the pump. Avo smash was bitter and bread was dry and listless-and overpriced. Will never return. Ever

    Terrible service, shocking food. Rip off. Will never return. Example, açai bowl, should be somewhat of a smoothie in a bowl, açai came out in two balls, barely able to eat because they were so frozen, whilst trying to eat peanut butter and dried granola, small bowl, just making a mess. Asked for table salt and pepper, my meal was taken off me and sent back to kitchen; not sure why ? Will never return

    This Cafe, formerly known as the Beach House, is no longer in the hands of the Hazel Group and therefore has dropped its standard to an average place - nothing to fault the service nor the food nor the cleanliness it just doesnt have that bit "extra" that it once had.

    Our party of six had an enjoyable time, with good meals, but would say they were overpriced to some extent given the simplicity of the servings ( but aren't all meals overpriced nowadays ? ) One of the disappointments was that five of the six of us had Coffee, and they were ALL cold - lack of experience by the Barista - should not serve up cold Coffee ! Feel, ambience and customer service was very good, albeit the music was too loud .

    Good, spicy food, solid GF options, but otherwise a menu that you would enjoy across 4 meals before you’d have to repeat something. Was dark outside but will be nicer in summer etc. and is a nice, clean, bright space inside.

    Great aesthetic, great spot by the water but the service was terrible. 1 person in our party didn’t get their coffee and then didn’t get their meal! No one came back to check you had to call them over to get their attention. I understand there are staff shortages but not sure how they forgot one persons entire order when it was written down! Not sure if I’d go back, plenty of other brunch spots with the same food that get service right.
