Le Parisien is certainly worth a visit if you are in Geelong. The menu is good and likely to have something for most people to choose. We visited twice in one week. The first time it was a 5 star experience, but the second visit was only a 3! My husband found 2 bits of plastic in his dessert and... More

Iit feels like this restaurant has been in Geelong for 100 years and it may once have been the height of fine dining. But not anymore I fear. Admittedly I went for a set menu as part of a Christmas function. The dishes were unobjectionable but mostly lacking in sophistication. The desserts definitely had the feel of something that had...

Disappointed....this is well known as one of the very best restaurants in Geelong, so I expected it to have a bit of an edge. Our table was is a nice position looking over the bay (beautiful evening). The service was OK, the meal was OK .....and thats about all I could say for it. The owner Jean Paul was there,... More

We met up with friends on Monday lunch time . We had a good table overlooking the water ( only two others we occupied ) Food was French inspired and ok . Presentation was nice but I dont think it was particularly good value for money. The waitress could have been better especially given it was virtually empty. Oh, yes... More

We had a great French meal at this well placed restaurant with a lovely view of the bay. However some staff failed to be attentive with the empty plates, and others appear to ask questions without sincerity. Asking for additional bread was frowned upon, not like the French restaurants we visited in France. A bit pricey for French fare, however... More

Visited Le Parisien whilst on holiday. The food was excellent. We had a lovely view of the bay whilst we ate. Save space for the dessert, the Chocolate soufflé was outstanding.

We were looking forward to a special night, which ended up very disappointing. Absolutely terrible service from the floor staff, we waited for over 30 minutes for a glass of water when we arrived, which was a sign of what was to come. Waiters are just not polished or trained properly. The doors to the balcony were opened, only to... More

The French onion soup is always great. Well looked after by wait staff and owner. View is great. A Geelong fixture on the waterfront. You will not be disappointed. Fish meats well matched with wines from Australia NZ and Europe.

Using a gift voucher from my in-laws, my hubby and I booked for dinner at Le Parisien. What a treat! Our waitress, Kate, asked our names and used them all evening. She was relaxed and engaging and very helpful. She made sure that we were happy with everything. The food was superb. Maybe a little more pricey than we are... More
