    Excellent food and service. Everyone clearly enjoys what they do. The sommelier is excellent. Ask him to pair wine with each of your courses! I always bring a few of his reccs home.

    Excellent in all ways. I did notice that not all the waitresses had their masks on properly covering nose and mouth. In fact one waitress had it on her chin the whole time. that is the only negative. everything else excellent and lovely and warm on a freezing night. We shall be back

    A lot of fat on the Veal dish and a little bit rare for my liking ( the waitress did say it was cook that way ) so my error in choice. Pork ,Beef cheeks and Parmagana were lovely. Desserts beautiful.

    My daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The staff were super friendly & relaxed & confident. The atmosphere is warm & friendly. But most importantly, the food was excellent. There was a good variety of food on the menu- at all different price points. The pumpkin tortellini was to die for- pizza was light & fresh & so tasty!! Even the glass of wine I chose was perfect. We shared dessert. Delicious!! Sometimes going out for a meal can be disappointing- but Centra did not disappoint. I had such a wonderful food experience & left happy & full...Thank you..x

    Terrific food. Excellent staff who are attentive without you realising it. Special wines by the glass a real bonus. Well worth the drive from Melbourne.

    Definitely one of Geelong’s top eateries, alway good, always reliable and with current rennovations it will keep getting better. We’ve going to Centra for several years and never had a bad meal

    Why has it taken so long for us to try this restaurant/pub on a Geelong street corner. It's gorgeous! Warm and cosy with a touch of class. Very welcoming and switched on staff. A huge bonus is for discerning wine lovers in that you have the advice of an experienced sommelier on the staff whose knowledge is outstanding. We felt very privileged to source his advice. Beautiful food, a fine dining atmosphere but without the big price and snobby atmosphere. We'll be back, its unique in Geelong.

    Great lunch, brilliant service. Perfectly cooked scallops, delicious linguine and dreamy gnocchi... to say nothing of the lovely wine it was paired with. Can't fault this and highly recommend.

    Wait time on food was a little longer but worth the it. Pumpkin ravioli with burnt sage butter & biscotti crumble was scrumptious.

    Had a wonderful dinner for 2. Great Italian food at a reasonable price. Service was spot on, attentive without being over the top. Good wine selection too! Will certainly go back to this terrific restaurant.

    The venue is nice, food is fine simple but nothing out of the ordinary to be honest. The staff are lovely but can be a bit overbearing. Sounds like a nitpick but they just kept coming to the table, which interrupted the night constantly. This occurred every time I’ve been there and it’s a little irritating.

About the restaurant

Meet you at Centra

With a focus on architecture, food and drink - Centra Hotel seamlessly links all three delivering a harmonious dining experience that caters to all the senses. The venue, originally constructed in 1854, has been given a recent facelift by renowned architect Tarryn Joyce who has created a comfortable contemporary space, which still highlights elements of Centra’s history.

The menu is rustic and Italian, driven by local produce and a desire to deliver fresh, flavoursome, expressive and honest. The antipasti offering is perfect for an afterwork snack, while the primi, secondi and pizza listings are great for a hearty feast (the pappardelle lamb ragu is simply mouth-watering). The menu is beautifully complemented by the drinks list, which offers a large range of beers and ciders, plus some locally sourced wines and craft brews. Come with your mates and sit out in the leafy courtyard, bring the family for a big ol’ catch up or bring your partner for a casual date night - this place can cater for all.

Best dish: prosciutto & rucola pizza followed by tiramisu.
