The perfect place for delicious food with a view 

Located on The Esplanade, Bistro on the Green at the Torquay Lawn Bowls Club recently underwent a $2 million renovation and is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch and dinner with family and friends. Customers can take in unbeatable ocean views of Zeally Bay or ‘Fishos Beach’ during the day, while at night the bistro, which can seat 120 people, has an old school club feel about it. 

The bistro is run by Torquay locals Ronnie Dabu, a renowned chef and local legend in the Torquay and Falls Creek Alpine food scene, and his partner Kylie Emmett. Ronnie has had a major influence in the food scene around Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast since the early 80s. His menu offers modern Australian cuisine with a “Eurasion” flair and has been designed to delight visitors with amazing dishes created from local and regional produce.

The seafood chowder served in custom made sourdough boules by the Zeally Bay Sourdough crew seems to be a favorite. There is a large range of seafood dishes on offer, as well as NY cut steak, Rib Eye, Duck and Pork. Vegetarian and gluten free options are also available. Portions are very generous and reasonably priced with daily specials and a great kids menu to choose from.

They have a fully licensed bar with bowls club prices, and a welcoming friendly atmosphere. 

The Bistro also has enough room to accommodate tour buses, corporate events, weddings, parties … anything.

Packages are available on request. 

Open six days Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 9pm and weekends from 8.30am to 9pm. (close Mondays)
