    The team at Centra are amazing. Great service, ambience and food. We were a large group and everything went smoothly. It was worth the drive from Melbourne and we will be back.

    Food was delicious and a cut above standard. I had the crispy barramundi which was succulent and packed with flavour. The staff were welcoming and professional. I'd recommend in a heartbeat

    The service was excellent, especially given the current Covid climate. Pasta and pizza were up to their usual very good standard. We highly recommend Centra for good value dining.

    Devine seafood linguini. Perfect al dente pasta with a lovely jus and big fresh seafood - large muscles, scallops and prawns. The chef clearly has a passion for Italian food.

131 Yarra Street, 3220, Geelong (VIC), Australia

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.
