Fantastic drinks and feed pork belly and mac and cheese are a must
We had the Chef's choice, enjoyed sampling the range and the service was excellent by the two staff.
Lovely meal and entertainment. Would come back again.
Amazing food. We loved every dish we tried. And super happy to see the whole menu is gluten free. Attentive and friendly service also. Live in Melbourne, but would make the trip to Geelong just to visit this place again.
Excellent food catering to gluten intolerance. It was very noisy due to the drag show upstairs. But this may only be on certain nights. Also they seemed understaffed on the night. they were however very apologetic around wait times. Overall though I will go back as we had a lovely time.
Food amazing. Friendly staff. Great cocktails - talented barman who made creative cocktails to our liking (not on the menu). Great atmosphere. Definitely visit again.
Food and cocktails were delicious. Everything came out with good timing even though it was busy. Would deffinetly come back.
Service was outstanding. The food is amazing. Perfect.
I have only gratitude for Recess and their fabulous staff. They made my partners birthday an absolutely beautiful and memorable experience and I would just like to thoroughly thank all of them for the fantastic food, atmosphere and kindness.
Incredible food. Great service. Terrific atmosphere. Sat outside and was beautiful with the heaters on.
Good to know there are restaurants of this quality & style in Geelong. Great night with very attentive friendly staff. Most of the food was wonderful both in presentation & taste however I found the duck a little underwhelming & won't order it next time.
Great food and atmosphere. It's a must...
We did the Chef’s choice, was a good choice, plenty to eat and tasty as..
As a regular customer we would highly recommend Recess to all our friend from the moment we walk in we are greeted at the door by friendly staff our table has been ready and waiting for us, the staff are curtious and happy to be of assistance.
Try it you will like it.
Beautiful food & amazing staff!
Fabulous food, super service and spectacular staff
Amazing food and service. Cocktails are fabulous. Great quality.
Always great food, the menu has plenty of variety and well balanced between small and larger dishes and sides. The dessert was a first and delicious way to finish. Sitting upstairs was a fantastic change.
I adore Recess food. My friends and family also love it. You would never know it is 100% gluten free! The service is always excellent. The unlimited drinks is fantastic. I love working my way through the cocktail list.
Love it more every time I go :) Brought a friend with me this time who had never been before. She said it was the best restaurant she'd been to in Geelong. Totally agree :)
Service was slow for bottomless brunch. Strict rules about how many drinks/when you can order drinks.
Food was amazing though.
First time since Covid dining that gives you a full dining experience. Entree, main and dessert in the allocated time without feeling rushed. Service at its best and food is delicious.
We went to Recess just after lockdown so it was still limited numbers. It didn't disappointed at all though! The cocktails, food and service was all first class and we had a great night. We will definitely be back next time we visit Geelong!
Awesome value , nice comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely be back
Great service, friendly staff. Love visiting with my friends, ambience very good
Food was delicious. Music could have been a bit quieter.
We bought take away for a special occasion during lock-down, and were so impressed we promised ourselves to visit Recess once we were allowed to dine out again. It certainly did not disappoint - we loved the sharing plates, and the cocktails were amazing!! The service was friendly and attentive. Loved this dining out experience and look forward to visiting again!!
Birthday. Was excellent!!
Had the Chef’s tasting menu. All dishes were amazingly presented and equally delicious. Cocktails were just a beautifully presented and tasty.
One of us is no dairy and they were more than obliging to accommodate. Can't wait for covid restrictions to ease so we can eat and drink that bit longer
We had the most wonderful time at recess. As someone who has worked in customer service in the past, we were so impressed with Jordan's impeccable, friendly and very professional service- will be back again for sure!
The buttermilk chicken is a must! As is the pork belly. Yum.
Awesome bottomless brunch, service was excellent!
It is a lovely setting and food is divine but HATED the volume of music. Didn’t expect to feel like I was in the middle of a nightclub while at eating suck amazing food!!! A shame because I need the gluten free cuisine 🥺 DJ and restaurant is an ODD mix
Thank you so absoloutly loved the menu, food, service, drinks and the time. It’s was absolutely perfect.
Amazing prompt service from all the boys working that night
Happy to give recommendations and never left me to long with an empty glass
Great Service. Thanks for bringing a bit of normal to our ‘new normal’
We had a really great night especially our daughter who is a coeliac and she could eat everything.
Food was good, service was amazing. Highly recommend.
Great food., made even better that everything was gluten free! Certainly ensures that you can enjoy the evening, not being concerned about whether the kitchen has a real handle on what gluten free cooking really means.
Terrific service and really great vibe, we recommend Recess to everyone and will be back.
