There are some incredible Great Ocean Road Restaurants with a view and here are three of the best.

The Beach Pavilion in Lorne

The Lorne Beach Pavilion is located just a few steps from the sand of the curving Louttit Bay. It’s right in the heart of Lorne town which means you can easily walk there from your hotel or campsite.

Lorne is the perfect town for a weekend away as its close to everything you need to have fun. It has several Great Ocean Road restaurants with a view and is close to rainforest, waterfalls and beautiful beaches.

Check out happy hour in the Beach Pavilions courtyard on a sunny afternoon between 3-5pm for the best value drinks! Alternatively enjoy view the beautiful indoor restaurant on wild winter days.

Wyuna in Anglesea

Perched on top of the Anglesea Cliffs, Wyuna, which has opened since covid (previously Captain Moonlight) looks over the dramatic sand dunes and cliffs of the Victorian coastline.

Just a short stroll from town along beach, it boasts one of the most expansive beer views on the Great Ocean Road.

The building is also home to the Anglesea Surf Life Saving club and the newly opened Wyuna advertises that it has great food & local drinks and a chilled out coast vibe. I haven’t visited since pre-pandemic and also had a facelift since this photo was taken so its going on the itinerary for the next Great Ocean Road trip!

The Wye Beach Hotel

The Wye River Beach Hotel on the Great Ocean Road

The Wye Beach Hotel, an old favourite with locals, is popular not only for the views but it still holds true to its small-town feel.

The hotel overlooks a small but picturesque bay where the Wye River meets the rockpool clad beach. It has floor to ceiling windows and a long balcony so your can enjoy the view from nearly every table.

While the Hotel retains its very relaxed beachside feel, the menu is brimming with good wines and local craft beers and the food is decidedly better than your average pub.
