Description
Sailors' Rest is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner dining in Geelong, as well as offering an extensive range of drinks and sweet treats to enjoy at any time of the day or night. We warmly welcome families with children at our restaurant, and have a kids' menu just for them! During the day you can indulge your desire for a café-style breakfast at any time with our all-day breakfast menu, a sweet treat with a coffee, or peruse our menu for a more substantial lunch with a glass of wine or a beer. With the moonlight shining on the bay, our Geelong waterfront restaurant is the perfect location for dining with family or friends, a drink and tasty snack with a mate, or a long overdue catch up and cocktails with a big group of friends or colleagues.
