Chris’s Beacon Point Restaurant and Villas, Apollo Bay

Overlooking Bass Strait, set high in the Otways above the Great Ocean Road, Chris’s Beacon Point Restaurant and Villas has become the mecca for gourmet travellers. His personal approach to hospitality has made him one of the most loved characters in the region and his passion for the food of Southern Europe combined with the freshest and purest produce has made his cuisine world famous. “Chris Talihmanidis has been a culinary legend in this area for more than two decades” [circa 1979]. His crowning glory is Chris’s at Beacon Point, perched high on a bushland hillside with a wonderful view of the coast. Fresh seafood (check the blackboard specials) and Greek-influenced dishes are his forte. He has the pick of local lobster in season and prefers to serve it simply. You won’t find better. The menu also offers aged beef, roast duck, lamb and pork with imaginative garnishes, and perhaps Otway berries to follow. Overnight in one of the on-site villas if you can.” Gourmet Traveller Food Guide 2002. “From the ashes of last years fire has risen a splendid new structure of glass and timber, cleverly angled and tiered to make the most of the panorama. The restaurant looks down on Skenes Creek meandering down to the Southern Ocean below, with Apollo Bay’s boat harbour in the distance…Chris’s food-like his hospitality- is genuine and generous” Gourmet Traveller Guide 2005 Chris’s Restaurant is operating seven days a week for lunch and dinner. For reservations call 03 5237 6411. The exciting new Chris’s Restaurant is the perfect venue for conferences, receptions and functions. We approach our functions with the same care and attention to detail as we do our a la carte dining. For a banquet of exceptional quality call us on the above number.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
