James White

Head Chef James White and his passionate team share with us their take on a Modern Australian/ Middle Eastern share style menu that is playful and full of flavor. Honed by his experience on the frontline, managing and owning Scorched restaurant in Torquay, James’s approach is refreshingly professional. His food speaks for itself, simple, unpretentious and delicious.

I eat at Zigfrids regularly, and I have not been disappointed since James White took over the kitchen 2 or 3 years ago

This just might be the best value-for-money restaurant in Geelong. The food is really excellent and interesting without being too over-the-top fussy. Don't miss the peanut butter parfait for dessert.

Went here for my birthday with my family early Friday evening. I've rated everything 10 out of 10, because it really is that good. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious (make sure you stay for dessert - the Moroccan Mess is amazing!). The atmosphere was great, too. The music was not so loud you have to yell to hear each other talk (a common complaint in other places), and it's a really good looking space, too. Thanks!
