The kids menu in this beachy cool space is short but good with options such as mini steak and salad; fat three cheese pillowy gnocchi, fish and chips or a lovely risotto. Well planned, nutritious and respectful. Whilst the kids were entertained with their bowls of delight, we selected a few bites from the tapas selection – fabulous, fat pork dim sims with sticky sauce, a salt and pepper calamari salad and some leek and gruyere arancini. We had a hard time getting any for ourselves after the small people at the table decided they liked our meals too! With a glass of local pinot noir in hand, we were pretty relaxed about sharing Sunday lunch with those we love. One, two, three…aw!
We usually go for the sharing plates at BeachHouse Barwon Heads as it is a great way of eating. But the lunch menu has some terrific Sunday lunch staples like fresh fish and chips or a really, really decent steak sandwich. And the breakfast options are solid – house made baked beans as part of a big breakfast or their house made banana bread with pistachios.
Perhaps the pièce de résistance of BeachHouse Barwon Heads is the outdoor deck at the front of the building. Constructed from recycled timber and basking in glorious sunshine, this deck area provides the most wonderful vantage point for people watching on Hitchcock Avenue! It is a great spot to stop a while, quench the thirst and continue on your way. When you add to this relaxing weekend formula, a great sharing menu, wines by the glass and a dedicated kids menu then it is nearly impossible not to enjoy yourself. BeachHouse Barwon Heads is in itself, worth the trip to the Bellarine. No doubt, you’ll see us there too!
