Great Ocean Road’s 2023 Hatted Restaurants

Great Ocean Road’s 2023 Hatted Restaurants

The Great Ocean Road region is fast becoming known as a foodie destination with so many local producers, artisans and chefs doing amazing things.

There are so many restaurants doing great things dotted throughout the extensive region of coast and hinterland.

Here are the latest restaurants hatted in ‘The Age Good Food Guide Awards 2023’ that are a must for those foodies out there.

Needless to say, bookings are essential!

Brae, Birregurra - Three hats

Brae is a destination within itself. A place of serenity amongst their own working organic farm in Birregurra, connecting diners with their food. There’s a reason Brae has been voted World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 and Good Food Guide 2020’s Restaurant of the Year.


Moonah, Conewarra - Two hats

Moonah describe their food as ‘honest, pure and delicious’ which is a testament to the foraged and local ingredients used from their kitchen garden. An intimate experience, seating only 12 guests, the experience is heightened with each table having an incredible panoramic view. Moonah offer a single multi-course menu served over approximately 3 hours.


Ipsos, Lorne — One hat

Fun, noisy and perfect for those group long lunches that get a little rowdy! Run by Dominic Talimanidis and his parents, this is not your average Greek taverna. The menu reflects the family’s love of Greece with a collection of signature dishes as well as a rotating menu dependent on seasonal local produce. And they make sure everyone leaves feeling satisfied!


For all the foodies out there, check out our other experiences including local produce tastings in Timboon, the Otway Harvest Trail, 12 Apostles Food Artisans Trail or of course one of our many other incredible restaurants using only the best produced by our own Great Ocean Road region.

Bon appetit!
