It is a classical symmetrical rectangular building separated from Eastern Beach Rd and the beach by a long, broad manicured lawn
with a narrow band of water flowing down one side and a variety of, mostly, enclosed sculptures,
relating to Geelong's history along the other side.
Tables, covered in some sort of brown vinyl, are reasonable size and upholstered chairs are comfortable.
They also have a covered outside dining area.
A couple of small slices of bread were brought to the table with both butter and a light olive oil. Unfortunately the bread had been left in the oven until they were completely dried out.
This was an excellent combination. I would have liked a fatter piece of belly and could not pick the extra sweetness that characterizes acorn fed pigs but no doubt they had a lot more to eat than that.
This came with just the right amount of very good wine jus. Unfortunately, assured that it could be cooked blue it actually came medium rare.
It was an extremely good piece of meat, far too good to waste, so I did not make a fuss about it but merely pointed it out when I was asked. At the end of the meal I found that the manager had adjusted the price, an unexpected and very decent thing to do.
This did not quite hit the mark. It was too soft and tasted a little like condensed milk.
Served with framboise (Almond) and tuille it was the perfect consistency.
