We booked for brunch here as I was recommended to it as a Coeliac friendly place and it was. They understood the difference between just gluten free and Coeliac Disease which made me relax and enjoy my meal even more. Thank You!

It was freezing with the door open.
I don't understand why on a cold wet night it was kept open. We had a wind blowing on our table the whole time.

We sat outside but the heater was on and blinds were closed so we were perfectly comfortable temperature wise. The food was really yum! And our coffee was delicious too. Overall we were very happy and would definitely come back next time we visit Barwon Heads.

We were not informed that we would be dinning outside until we arrived. We sat with blankets to keep warm it would have been good to have that conveyed at the booking as it was very cold night.

However as you booked online it clearly states in our terms & conditions which must be accepted to make a booking "Please note due to new regulations your booking maybe outside, if this doesn't suit we will do our best to accommodate."

The Beach House was fantastic! The salt and pepper calamari was cooked perfectly and everything was super tasty. We were seated out the front looking over the main street and the fairy lights in the trees really added to the ambience. Thanks for a great night Beach House staff!

Booked online for 3 people. No prompts online re seating arrangements.Didn’t mind sitting outside, however inappropriate to seat three on a bench seat facing a ugly. black wall. Staff weren’t prepared to move us to a table as they were booked! There was plenty of space inside and outside to maintain safe social distancing to add a table. Food was good. Drinks ridiculously priced $75 for a bottle of local Leura Park Blanc de Blanc. We pay less than half that when at Leura Park. Stayed for an hour ate and left as seating was so uncomfortable and not suitable for three. Realise Covid makes things tricky but if you are asking for bookings please make seating options clear. Disappointed as was looking forward to a lunch out. None of us will be going back.

Hi LisaB, Thanks for the review as it is a major part of how we grow our business! When making bookings online it clearly states in our terms & conditions that you may be seated outside which everyone has to accept to make the booking. As we have a limited number of seat we have been fully booked most nights, as for your comment on enough space inside, we completely agree ! however by law we can only have a maximum of 20 people (10 per space) regardless of the distancing.

We had a selection of tasty share plates for lunch. the service was quick, friendly and they did well to adhere to all the Covid regulations. we sat outside under the verandah and it was warm enough with heaters and the blinds down. would come back again.

Food was great but when we booked via open table there was no option of choosing inside or out. When we arrived we had no choice but to be outside and it was bloody windy and cold. So that ruined the experience for us.
that option ahud be available to Patrons

The Grazing menu at The Beach House is very good. Good variety and quality. The service lets The Beach House down. The staff are very young and do their best, however it is obvious that they have little or no training. If the management invested some money and time into training their staff it would take The Beach House to the next level.

Impressed by quality and presentation of food, along with professional and friendly customer service.
Equally impressed by the takeout service that Beach House has extended during COVID19 - food represented 'better dining' - taste was not compromised.

Was nice to finally eat out after so long....staff were friendly and helpful. Meals were fantastic (I had the scotch fillet and veg). Overall a great night. The only thing I have marked down on was the price...just a little expensive for my wallet but overall a great place to go and relax.

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.
