Relax Unwind Enjoy: A boutique bistro on the Bellarine Peninsula with steaks you will want to come back for! King Island Eye Fillet - you're in heaven. The freshest seafood: a seafood platter fit for a King and Queen. You won't have room for starters. A shame. Our chef's speciality duck spring rolls are renowned. If you're hanging out for a Parmi, we have those as well. Tender mouth watering chicken breast coated in panko crumbs with the sweetest Napoli. There's so much more on our menu to whet your appetite. Speaking of whet sample our boutique beer range, indulge in a classic cocktail or sip on a wine. Meet up with friends to chill on the balcony looking out to BASS strait in the afternoon

From the moment we walked in this was an unforgettably ordinary night. The waitress waved to a table and said offhandedly come to the bar when you want to order. Trying to order was an unorganised mess. 5 people behind the bar and not one...More

Because it’s up a fight of stairs and tucked away at the end of the main shopping street in Ocean Grove, Zebra Bar Bistro is sometimes overlooked. Don’t make that mistake; you will be missing out on a treat! The bistro is a favourite of...More

Fantastic restaurant and wonderful staff. We had a chance to meet with the chef, a deeply passionate and talented cook. His cuisine was outstanding (we particularly recommend the house made duck spring rolls and chicken liver pate, as well as the King Island eye fillet)....More

The restaurants decor needs a lot of work (the owner loves zebras). But has huge potential as great location and views of the ocean. And the entrance not welcoming, but glad we didnt turn around and walk out because our lunch was excellent. Flathead delicious....More

We went for dinner and had most of the seafood on offer. Mussels, oysters (natural & kilpatrick), calamari, prawns and flathead tails. Even the salad 🥗 was delish! Would definitely go back when in the area again.
