We ate at Buff's on both nights of our stay in Apollo Bay. There is a good menu and winelist, and the prices are good value. Excellent service and comfortable seating. Highly recommended.

We went to Buffs on the recommendation of Trip Advisor as wasn't disappointed. I had the Prawns and my husband had the fish and both meals were delicious. The staff were friendly and the cost wasn't too exhorbitant.
