“Incredible find”
Review of Centra Hotel

Centra Hotel
Ranked #4 of 488 Restaurants in Geelong
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Rustic italian food is about locally sourced, seasonal produce presented simply and with respect. For us, this means food that's flavoursome, expressive, honest and (most importantly) delicious. S0 having a connection with our growers and suppliers is a natural part of our food philosophy - it enables our chefs the ability to source the best available produce locally and abroad. With the same values we hold for our food, equally can be said for the relationship we've developed with our grape & grain growers too. Through these connections, we've been able to have some of our closest friends make specifically for us a range of wines and beers/ciders that are best suited to the food and atmosphere of the venue. As great an impact food and drink can have on an experience, so too can the setting in which they're consumed. This is why we set about creating a space which matches the freshness and clean qualities of both the food and drink we offer. We wanted this space to be a modern interpretation of a public house, which to us, is a place that all people should feel free to enjoy (to eat, drink, laugh, relax) however they choose.

What a great pub and restaurant. Amazing venue whether you're looking for a good old fashioned pub, or a sophisticated Italian meal. The combination of both environments is executed so well here, big congrats to the owners. Loved our dinner here!

When I found out we were having our work Christmas function here I was actually really disappointed as I don't eat pizza or pasta (coeliac) and they don't do GF versions of either. (How annoying.) So there were limited options for me...a risotto which is often a big bowl of glug, or a salmon main dish which some reviews suggested was not great value. So I opted for two side dishes - which I asked for on a big plate and staff were only too happy to oblige - of radicchio salad and broccolini with parmesan. Absolute perfection and delicious. And I did feel just a little smug with my healthy greens while everyone else stuffed themselves with pizza and pasta. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and very obliging. We had a private room so we could be as noisy as we liked. And everyone really enjoyed their meals, except those who ordered the risotto....you guessed it, bowl of glug.

Wonderful service and great surrounds. Definitely be back. We chose Calamari entree and the specialty pizza which we shared. Both dishes were excellent.
