The 5 BEST Places to EAT in Warrnambool, Victoria – Great Ocean Road

The Pickled Pig…

Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Wine matching spot on

I don’t normally get on TripAdvisor very often.
But when I have a dinner to remember I like to mark it down.
It was a cold, wet, classic winters night in “the bool”.
It’s the second time I’ve visited this restaurant.
I decided to have the 5 course tasting menu I enjoyed last time, and with matched wines.
The value you get to the quality and knowledge of the wines is impeccable.

Each course was totally something different I would not of expected but worked so well.

The food was great. Each portion was a good size. Not overly large but once you get to number 5, you are reaching the limits.
The pork belly, as it should be in the pickled pig was a favourite of mine!

The service was great, it was the same person who was doing our wines that was looking after us all night. He was a young lad doing the floor by himself And still had time to talk is through everything that was put in front of us.

Cracking venue Pickled Pig!

Highlight of my trip

 On my trip to Victoria down Great Ocean Road, I discovered this restaurant after reading great reviews and wanting to try something different.

It was definitely worth it coming to this restaurant.

We chose the tasting menu and each course was something new and fresh. The food was perfect and had unbelievable flavours and the pork belly I tried was succulent and fresh.

The pork belly was wonderfully presented and the staff were friendly and professional.

They have a wonderful selection of wines and Brenton provided us great advise on which wine was best suited with the courses.

We had booked up earlier online which was a bonus and made everything easier.

Overall, the visit to Pickled Pig was lovely and I would no doubt recommend it to family and friends to come try out.

The perfect spot to finish off a great trip on the Great Ocean Road...

We had a great meal at the Pickled Pig in Warrnambool. We were looking forward to it after meeting other travellers and receiving such high recommendations. It is a fine dining experience, with fantastic quality produce and good service. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to have a delicious meal (and not a tourist trap).

We booked ahead (recommended as it is was busy when we were there – but great ambience) and opted for the 10 course tasting menu. It took the hassle out of us choosing what to eat and we didn’t regret it! The tasting menu included tuna, pork belly and eye fillet, so lots of protein for my hungry husband and finished off with a delicious Eton Mess.

Wonderful tasting menu!

Only in Warrnambool for 1 night and tried this restaurant having read the reviews.

Both myself and my wife went for the tasting menu as it had the full selection of fish, pork, beef and dessert dishes with a twist.

The waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable.

All dishes had amazing flavours and the presentation was first rate. And all for a reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit

Very pleasant lamb blackstrap meal… however the maple syrup ice cream with waffles, fresh fruit and yes more maple syrup was the best.

I was in seventh heaven with the texture of the waffles, the delicate maple syrup flavour in the ice cream and fresh local berries.
The staff were lovely and welcoming even offering a return journey to our accomodation as we were walking. We felt very welcomed and cared for.

Fabulous food with attentive service!

This was our second visit to Clovelly and, as with the first time, we were very impressed. We enjoyed a complimentary drink in the bar, which was much appreciated after a busy day (thank you Raj), and then headed into the restaurant. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the service is prompt and attentive. Impressive wine list. Entree was natural and kilpatrick oysters – fresh and delicious followed by juicy rib-eye steaks cooked to perfection. We opted to end the feast with a cheese platter for two that was very generous and offered a great selection of cheese and fruits.
Thank you for a really nice evening!

Yummy food!

We had a range of bar food as we were heading out to a performance. It was delicious and served quite speedy. Also kid friendly.
The breakfast menu was varied and very tasty. We all enjoyed our breaky, coffee was great and nothing was too much trouble. Great friendly staff. Thanks for an enjoyable experience.

Best pizza ever

My husband and I met a young local lady the morning we visited this hotel.
She asked if we had been to the hotel Warrnambool , when we said we hadn’t she highly recommend we do, and went on to say the chicken caesar salad pizza was a favourite.
As I’m a fan of caesar salad I couldn’t resist going to try it and we weren’t disappointed .
Omg it was seriously the best pizza I have ever had my husband had the aussie pizza and it was also so good .
The atmosphere in the hotel was the best and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
I would highly recommend anyone visiting Warrnambool to pay them a visit.
Thanks for making our trip memorable.

After a long day on the road (travelling from Perth to QLD and stopped in Warrnambool for the night) their menu stuck out to us when we read it at the motel room.
The food was faultless, the service was amazing and the atmosphere was cosy!
If in town i HIGHLY recommend stopping in and having a bite to eat.

Yummy pork belly

My husband & I had dinner here during our final night in Warrnambool

We were lucky that it was steak night (Thursday) so my husband ordered a steak with caramelized onion butter. I ordered the pork belly and found it pull apart tender. (Although it was only crispy at one end). The lemon tart was tasty, although the butterscotch creme brulee was poor.

Service wise, while slow, the staff were happy to cater for my husband’s unusual food allergy.

I’d recommend eating here.

Good place to eat at Flagstaff Hill…

Having driven in from Ballarat and feeling quite hungry and visiting Flagstaff Hill I had lunch at Pippies.

The lunch menu had quite a wide variety of choices had reasonable prices.

The food served quite quickly and the views out over Lady Bay on a winter afternoon were very attractive.

The food itself was well presented and tasty. A convenient place for lunch when visiting Flagstaff Hill

Great spot for breakfast and lunch

Pippies by the Bay serves up a great breakfast and lunch, really good coffee and a nice selection of cakes and scones with some of the best views of beautiful Lady Bay in the town.

Prices are fair with a good selection of items on the menu under $20 for breakfast and lunch. It is open for dinner also but I have not been as yet.

The staff are efficient, courteous and professional and the restaurant is a clean and modern space with a nice atmosphere, in winter there is a cosy fire going with comfy couches.

There is ample free parking with plenty of space for those in larger vehicles with caravans.

It is located on the same site as the tourist information centre and the historic Flagstaff Hill attraction.

I always like to take friends and family visiting from out of town here to enjoy Warrnambool’s ocean views and have nice food.
