Had lunch in the café which had spectacular views and the place was busy. We had to line up to order meals and drinks which became a drag as you would have to wait 10-15 minutes in a queue which I find very off putting. For the sake of having another staff member working we would have bought more drinks... More

We went for lunch on a Wednesday. We'd booked a Table in the restaurant. Had a look at the cafe, menu and prices. The cafe has a good selection but not a fine dining experience. The restaurant is definitely a fine dining experience. The quail as an entree was very good, pork belly even better. Eye fillet for main, perfect,... More

Great views of Bellarine, Geelong and Corio bay are perfect back drop for this restaurant. One a sunny day the outside eating area is mainly shaded and offers the great views. The inside eating area has plenty of large windows also.The menu is reasonably extensive. The platters are interesting with the smoked food platter unique in my experiences. Enjoyed the... More

Not much else you can ask for her - especially on a lovely early Autumn day. It was very busy as it was a Public Holiday. I do suggest you book for the "Cellar" on a weekend or holiday but not a necessity. We sat on the covered verandah overlooking the amazing water views. We decided on two share plates... More

Not the best food but the relaxed atmosphere and the view makes up for everything. I think they rely on that a bit. We had family over from OS and the other side of the bay and Jack Rabbit is always a showcase for this side of the bay. We often go to the local wineries and because Jack is... More

We have been to this restaurant in both Summer and Winter - it has a lovely atmosphere, uses local produce and a great selection of wines. Nice open fire in the winter months, and amazing views all year round. Service is good, although could be better - staff seemed a bit rushed and stressed.

We booked at the "cafe" at jack rabbit on a Sunday. The view is good as expected, but depending on angle of table, not all can experience the view. On walking in, first and lasting impression was that too many tables had been packed in with too many patrons. Compared with other wineries this was a definite disappointment, added with... More

Jack Rabbit is one of many small winery/restaurants on the Bellarine Peninsula and it offers both a café as well as restaurant option, both with fantastic views across Geelong bay to the You Yang ranges. A cloudless sunny day will get you the most of the views, but add the elevated deck of the restaurant and it’s hard to beat.... More
