Serenely situated in Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road, the Great Ocean Hotel and Bistro laps up the sea views, soft breeze and sun-kissed skies, making it a truly coastal dining experience. You’ll feel right at home at this welcoming venue; here you can play a round of pool or linger in the courtyard with a drink before enjoying some filling pub style fare, either inside or alfresco. Prepared using fresh local produce, the Great Ocean Hotel and Bistro’s menu might include sauteed tiger prawns in creamy garlic sauce, served with jasmine rice, or the ever popular porterhouse steak served on seeded mustard potato mash with vegetables and your choice of sauce.
Inside, the new Chris’s Restaurant matches its surroundings, with sandstone floors and polished native redgum and blackwood timber. The main dining room radiates around a polished brushbox log over eight metres high, like the centre-pole of a marquee, giving the room a light and airy feel. The floor-to ceiling windows bring the Otways close in.
At sunset the lights of Apollo Bay come on, and at night the lighting around “Chris’s” illuminates the ferns and the manna gums (where koalas often feed). The different floor levels give almost every table a good view. There is a wood fire to greet diners in winter, and the specially glazed windows retain the warmth in cold weather. In summer, when it can be hot, even up on the hill, the restaurant is air-conditioned.
