Dinner here was excellent. The place, the view, the staff, the food, and the opportunity to meet Chris himself who brought out the delicious slow braised lamb shoulder, which we were informed is his special baby, all made for a wonderful family occasion. And the baklava! Superb. Chris has created a wonderful institution in a magical location and can be... More

As I can't seem to separate the villas from the restaurant on tripadvisor, I will separate in the review. The room was lovely, you pay more for the views but generally it was a nice set up and well located and lovely to wake up in. Heated blanket when it got cold was a nice touch. The restaurant was complacent... More

Stayed in the Villas over Easter and booked in to have a meal in the Restaurant. Brilliant service and food. Gorgeous views from high up in the hills where this Restaurant is located to view beyond Apollo Bay and the nearby beaches, and all the way to the left toward Lorne. Food was beautiful and very tasty. Breakfast served in... More

Superb views, food, wine and service. This would be an amazing restaurant to visit in summer when the sun sets late; the views would be incredible. We only caught the last glimpse of the sun setting at 6pm. The spectacular views were matched by the food. Try the octopus entree and fresh crayfish if in season. The creme brûlée is... More

Stopped by yesterday and it wasn't worth t. We didn't feel welcome at all. Staff were very pretentious and quite rude. The food is very overpriced for the quality you get. We have had meals that taste 10 times better for a fraction of the price we paid. We actually couldn't wait to leave. Take your money elsewhere.

Chris's Beacon Point is located on the side of a mountain; for a first visit it would be worth going while it's still light! The restaurant is a stunning building with views (through huge windows) of Apollo Bay in the distance (about 5 km. away). We had a beautiful meal - lamb shoulder and confit duck followed by baklava -... More

Had two dinners during our stay at the attached bungalows. Christos now over 70 (looking younger each time we visit) remembered us and we were welcomed with a glass of delicious pink sparkling wine. This is a place of understated elegance and purity which is reflected by the freshness of the healthy food preparations. Kind of an eagles nest overlooking... More

Visited for an early dinner with a family group, including four children between one and 14. As usual the food and service were excellent and Chris was there himself to welcome his guests. I have visited Beacon Point half a dozen times over twenty years - first as a child with my parents and now with my own family when... More

On our way from the 12 Apostles (or 7 as the case may be) we stayed in Apollo Bay at Chris' R&V. The accommodation was more than reasonable for the price but the restaurant was a great find....not just because my wife is Greek. The dinner was so so good.... we ordered extra starters to create our own Mezze of... More

Food was exceptional, very surprising. Fresh and well thought out, beautiful ingredients. The night we were there was a massive storm, power went out and the team persevered with great food under no lights!
