Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This looks like a little seaside cafe. Think again the quality of the seafood dishes are excellent and quite filling. My lobster linguine was delicious and packed with tasty lobster as was my wife's salmon dish. Looks cheap and cheerful but great cooking and fantastic...taste.More

Expensive for what you get. $3 extra to grill a small flake outside a 2 pack! Cardboard potato cakes. Poor service, poor food, over inflated prices

We had one night in Apollo Bay and were keen for some seafood within walking distance of our motel. The Seafood Cafe did not disappoint. We had grilled butterfish and chips, and the lobster fettuccine. The butterfish was so fresh and cooked to perfection with...a lovely garden salad and good serving of chips. The fettuccine was in an Alfredo sauce that was very nicely done. The lobster/ crayfish in the pasta was beautifully cooked and there was a lot! We enjoyed a nice bottle of shiraz with our meal and the service was very good. It’s a busy place and all the tables were full and kept filling up - we recommend booking, even on the day you plan to go. A great evening meal by the sea!More

We dropped in here for lunch. Food was ok. No wow experience but a little pricey. But it’s very unfortunate that they were very biased towards serving some customers. Our table didn’t have cutlery nor salt n pepper. When requested, it was never brought.

We had fish & chips and Marina linguine for lunch. The fish & chips was perfect as the fish was fresh and the chips were nicely fried. Not sure if the tartar sauce was straight from a bottle, but it was pretty nice. The pasta...was slightly overcooked, but the prawns and scallops were nice and chunky. Very satisfying lunch.More

An unexpected gem during our Great Ocean Road trip. We passed by this row of restaurants and didn’t know where to eat at and this restaurant was bustling. No regrets as their fish and chips were really fresh and delicious. Loved their prawns too. No...fishy smell at all and we were craving for it the next day and the rest of the trip. One of the nicest fish and chips we had.More

This venue has soared into my Top 3 All Time best fish n chip shops. Yes impeccably clean, the service was excellent and the flake was melt in your mouth stuff ..... but the mind blower here were the chips. Hot, golden, crispy like nothing...I have tasted before. I suspect I will be dreaming of that feed for a long time. Thank You Apollo Bay Seafood Cafe and keep up the good work ... superb.More

Fish and chips dressed up as a fish platter and while tasty and well cooked I don't think it lived up to the 'platter' designation so by all means go but keep it simple and get old fashioned fish and chips

Apollo bay is definitely a tourist town. Lots of food shops vying for your $$$. This place was lovely. They have a huge wall covered in white scallop tiles. It's beautiful. We ordered an early dinner. It was not very busy at the time. My...husband got the gourmet burger. He enjoyed it. I ordered the lemon peppered calamari. It was delicious, but a couple more pieces wouldn't have gone astray. The place is expensive, but it's a very good traditional seafood shop. Too many chips on plate, not enough calamari.More

The most indifferent staff members I've ever seen since I came to Melbourne. When we entered the restaurant, we weren't greeted by any staff. I repeated three times,"Excuse me, I'd like to order something" but no one answered. At first, I thought they were all...deaf but a few seconds later, one of the staff told me,"just one second" bluntly. After we've placed the order, the staff didn't even say 'thank you'. Instead, he asked us,"do you need a receipt?"with a poker face. All the staff there had a poker face as if they had just come back from a funeral. The food was ok but not amazing.We ordered a grill fish with salad and a beef burger with chips. We also ordered a cup of hot chocolate and a coffee. They charged us $60 which was a total rip off!More
