We went to BeachHouse in Barwon Heads was a great night. Tables were spaced properly due to the Coronavirus. Our food was great Garlic and Herb bread for starters, I had whiting in a very light batter absolutely delicious my husband had the fish stew full of different seafood which he loved. A very nice time all in all.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance, the waitress was friendly and the service was very good. We ordered whiting with hand cut fries and salad. The food was nice enough but we felt that the food was rushed and the chips were not cooked crisp enough. We feel that the food service was rushed...to our surprise the food came out very quickly. We feel that since the restaurant was not busy on this night that the chef would have had ample time to prepare our food with a little more care. Also the three whiting pieces served were small...and therefore for what we got the meal was overpriced.

Having an open view to the kitchen is not a good idea when the waiters take out the trash then put the bin down and pick up someone's dinner.
The slow roasted lamb was dry and the first bite into my sticky date pudding contained a large date pip. I certainly won't be returning to the BeachHouse in a hurry.

We have been there before. But this time they forgot our order after nearly an hour we asked about what was happening they told us they were very busy even though other people after us had received and eaten. We were told it was a minute away then had to wait another 15 minutes for it to come. I rather to be told they forgot instead of how busy they are. Very disappointing.

Great in season food in a lovely location. Enjoyed the lovely surrounds and busy holiday vibe. Asparagus salad with goats cheese was one of the best sides I’ve ever had! Amazing!

Quality of food varied significantly
Anti pasta platter was very poor. Plenty of it, but nowhere near enough variety
Salmon skewers fresh & tasty
Duck rolls bland & like a sausage roll Would have benefited from filo pastry & more crisp veg
Bouillabaisse was excellent plenty of seafood & great flavour!!
Salad fine

Service was mixed too Waitress & floor manager both very friendly but wine knowledge was poor & we had to keep repeating requests & eventually just had to walk up to Bar to get bill. I know it was NYE but we were an early sitting & the place was nowhere near full

Clearly a popular place, good atmosphere & potentially great but too inconsistent for the prices

This is a good restaurant with a holiday vibe; unfortunately the service was very slow on our two visits for Breakfast ( 30 min wait for coffee) and Dinner ( 45 min wait for food)

Hi JohnG, We are sorry to hear that you were unimpressed by the speed of food and coffee on your visit, unfortunately during peak periods there will always be longer waits than normal due to the large influx of people not only we have but the town also. However each day we try to improve on our previous service and speed of service so that we can customers happy. Kind Regards.

We were served two dishes that were obviously reheated, not cooked properly (rice undercooked, salad soggy) and pasta was reheated and not tasty. On average mains were around $40 so we were very unimpressed with what we received. When we politely enquired with the restaurant their response was very unsatisfactory. We would not recommend nor will we return.
