My wife and I went to The Vista for dinner and thought we would splash out on the Seafood Platter. At $200 it promised to be a feast worthy of a king but it fell far short of that. If you're smart, you'll give the platter a miss and go for something else off the menu. Over-priced seafood and not really that much of it anyway.

Good service though and lovely atmosphere but were disappointed otherwise. We ordered the steak and the pork belly. The steak came with only a little red cabbage and no other vegetables. The jus was very watery... not a jus at all. The pork belly crackling was inedible, mashed potato very average and cabbage side rather ordinary. We didn't stay for desserts which were also overpriced. We ate Anzac day evening. We left disappointed.

Dear tourist, please never ever go to this restaurant when you visiting Apollo Bay Australia!!! No locals are eating there, only tourists! We ordered a seafood platter nothing special, no fresh at all and tasteless! The worst thing is extremely expensive!!!

My wife and I had a wonderful meal complete with whole fish. Service and food were excellent. We arrived without a reservation and were treated to a great meal.

Ended up at this place as every other place was full with lines. This place was half empty. That should of been the sign we needed to stay away. Very mediocre food for a high price, service was super slow. Looks nice inside. That's about it. You're better off lining up at the other places!
