Recess Bar & Eats
Recess is a place you can unwind from a long day at work, a time out from your busy lifestyle and space to run around, have a snack and play with friends. Come meet us behind the shelter shed, to push play on recess.
Wow we were so impressed. Lovely girls afternoon had with amazing food services and yummy cocktails. Totally recommend
Had a great bottomless lunch, the food was really good!
Always great food and service
Staff friendly and approachable
Great place with great food, one staff member seemed uninterested, but the other (barman) was terrific...overall a good experience, but hopefully staff pick up the enthusiasm a little...
Will definitely return. Staff were friendly & efficient. Food was great especially Pavlova Banoffe.
Fantastic cocktails accompanied by some delicious share plates.
Amazing food and service! Couldn’t recommend Recess high enough!
Great place and food, especially for celiacs as everything on the menu if gluten free!
I think I’ve just found my new favourite restaurant in Geelong! We did the chef’s tasting menu and couldn’t decide which dish we loved the most. The arancini, tacos, saganaki, super tender beef.. and the cauliflower mac and cheese with a hint of truffle. Super stoked that every dish is also gluten free, sooo good to not feeling sick after eating out! The virgin miss rosy was our favourite drink 🍸 will be back for sure, and next time will make sure to check out the show upstairs!
Food was amazing! The staff were also amazing, very friendly and made you feel welcome. Will definitely be returning
Good service, excellent food. The wine list was simple but impressive and the location was great as we could walk there from home.
Fabulous service from friendly staff . The cocktails were amazing and we had an assortment of shared plates all tasty and delicious.
Amazing food, awesome atmosphere and a wonderful night as always. It won't be long and we'll be back... again!
As a Coeliac, this menu is incredible! Spoilt for choice. Would love to come here regularly so I can try it all! But I find the dishes a little pricey for the portion size. Great drinks menu with fun themed cocktails. Excellent service. Nice place to catch up with friends.
This is the second time I’ve been to recess for the bottomless lunch/ dinner and it was just as great as the first. Cocktails are amazing as is the food and service.
Easily the best gluten free restaurant in Geelong.
Its a nice restaurant. Food portions could be bigger
Amazing food, drink and service, would definitely come again
Great food and cocktails. We had a great time. Enjoyed dinner and then the drag show and dancing. Perfect Friday night!!
Great food and bonus it’s all GF - all tastes amazing!! Awesome as always. Fantastic service too.
We tried Recess Bar on the advise of a friend and absolutely loved it! Food was awesome, service first class and atmosphere was comfortable, while being vibrant. We will definitely be back!
The food was fantastic! Gluten free catering and veg as n options. I will definitely go again
We had the Cheif's choice which was an exceptional range of delicious food and great value for money. My family are big eaters and we all had more than enough food. It was great service, atmosphere and amazing an meal that we can't wait to enjoy again soon.
This has got to be one of my favourite restaurants, I have become a bit of a regular for good reason! The food is AMAZING, the staff are AMAZING! It’s all gluten free but that doesn’t stop the flavours from being amazing and you want more and more! If your considering going, don’t consider, just go, you will not regret it!!!
Wonderful food and service at reasonable price. Good variety of share plates and, thankfully, not all Asian as is often the case. Good to see this restaurant has maintained its high standards when similar Geelong locations have slipped badly.
Our table of 7 had a wonderful NYE dinner at Recess Bar + Eats.
The cocktails were sweet but very nice - our table had a mixture of cocktails so we could all try.
Food was prompt and our table enjoyed our meals - we had the Saganaki, Meatballs, San Choy Bau, Calamari, Beef brisket.
The entertainment was great - drag queens mixed with the crowd and included everyone. It was a NYE night we will not forget and continue to talk about for many years to come!
Bottomless brunch was amazing! I was very pleasantly surprised at how many drinks there were to choose from, we were also all happy with the variety of food. Our drinks were replaced as soon as we finished, service was great. Food and drinks were delicious.
Food, service and wine selections were great. We will definitely return again.
A great place for lunch! Highly recommend the 'Feed Me' option of the Chef's selection.
Absolutely loved the place! My friend's raved about the Banofee Pavlova six months ago, we went to go and it'd been taken off the menu. Now it's back and I'll be coming here again. The food was lovely and the cocktails were great too. Very fun place.
Excellent for most part. Did not love the calamari salad - too heavy on the sauce. But avocado dish is sensational as was saganaki. Love the ambience here and friendly service. Buzzy and cool. Please extend your list of local wines by the glass! I'll be back.
Great place for a night out! Food is perfect and with an awesome bar upstairs that keeps the night going this little gem located in Geelong is fast becoming a favourite!
Sensational food, service, drinks. Can’t go wrong, our go to in Geelong.
Great restaurant offering beautiful food with very friendly staff, whom recommended a great selection of share food
Amazing service and the food was delicious! We had a table of 6 and had enough food for everyone. Can’t wait to go back, especially for the cocktails!
Delicious food, friendly staff, fun venue and the best cocktails!
A great night! Amazing food, service and entertainment. We will be back in a few weeks and cannot wait!
Amazing food and delicious cocktails served with a smile
As always, amazing food and service. Highly recommend.
Went to Recess for dinner and drinks for our work Christmas function. The place had a great vibe and the service was fantastic. All food and drinks were delivered to the table very quickly, the prices were great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar upstairs was just as good- prompt service, clean toilets, entertainment was top notch. Would highly recommend Recess to anyone wanting a night out!
