SWING BRIDGE CAFE

Sit at the mouth of the Erskine River and while away the time at the Swing Bridge Café and Boathouse, a treasured spot serving food with a focus on fresh, healthy and artisanal produce.

Nino

Celebrating all things Italian, Nino is the newest restaurant to open in Lorne. Inspired by Italian cuisine, the venue also factors in the local beachside lifestyle with plenty of seafood items on the menu. 

iPSOS

Serving stunning Greek cuisine amidst the comforts of true taverna ambience, Kosta and Pam Talimanidis have teamed up with their sons Alex and Dominic, who take the reins at Ipsos.

The modern Greek menu is largely dictated by the day’s catch. Expect half-a-dozen fish options from the grill. The menu is otherwise spearheaded by artisan salads and hearty meat dishes. The wine list – the Achilles heel of so many Greek restaurants – leads the way with a punchy list of local and Kiwi drops.

Pizza Pizza

A little pizza shop by Brett Graham and Robert Lowther in Lorne. Pizza Pizza brings us simple, modern pizzas with clever combinations of high quality ingredients.

THE BOTTLE OF MILK

Burgers to drive the length of the Great Ocean Road for. Take your organic buns stuffed with the best of the season’s ingredients across to the beach and come back in the morning for simple breakfasts and fine Melbourne-roasted coffee.

LORNE BEACH PAVILION

Right on the wide blue waters of Loutitt Bay, the Lorne Beach Pavilion has a sprawling deck to soak up the sun and the views. Cold drinks, fresh seafood, the good stuff. Warm hospitality and year-round events mean that even on the coldest nights it’s a place to seek out.
