About Simon's Waterfront

Warrnambool's dramatic coastline forms the spectacular backdrop to Simon's Waterfront restaurant on Pertobe Road. Nestled atop Warrnambool Surf Lifesaving Club, this idyllic location presents diners with arguably the best views along the Great Ocean Road; whether it’s a brew and gourmet burger with mates in the beer garden, or a coffee on a cosy couch in front of the fire. If seaside dining puts you in the mood for seafood, opt for prawn and curry spring rolls, with chilli jam; before mains like seafood linguine – prawns, scallops, calamari, fish, mussels, butter, chilli, garlic, parsley, shallots and white wine. Chow down on a slow-cooked pulled pork burger with housemade slaw and tangy sauce; while vegetarians opt for a veggie patty version with spicy sauce, cos, onion and Parmesan.

Fabulous lunch time find
Enjoyed a delicious late lunch today at Simon's Waterfront restaurant. Their seafood chowder is to die for and their paella was excellent. The staff were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome even though we had come in quite late for lunch. And the ocean view was amazing! We will definitely be back next time we are in Warnambool, Sue and Russell


Great size meal, very flavoursome, outstanding view, very attentive service. Reasonably priced.


great food, great views and friendly service. Next time I am coming thru town we will try again


Great food with even better views, great to eat breakfast whilst watching the early morning surfers!
