Great few days at Warrnambool races. Our room was clean and tidy however our group always spent 3 great nights at Breakers Restaurant. We have booked at the motel up the road (mid city) which has a restaurant. Very disappointing to have missed our usual 3 nights of great seafood and service...

Shared entree, pork belly and scotch fillet mains and sticky date dessert, all of which were delicious! Relaxed dining, good service and a very good drinks menu

A quality restaurant with an excellent menu and friendly experienced staff. We had the Prawn and Crayfish rolls and Seared Scallops for entrée both were light and had a range of flavours that left you longing for more. The mains were Lobster, which was cooked perfectly in garlic butter, and the Seafood Platter which was a perfect mix of hot... More

A couple of dinners at the outside section told me to try Breaker's but also added that the previous owner had just passed away a week ago from a... More

Great little seafood restaurant! The atmosphere is cosy and makes you feel at home, the waitress was friendly and prompt and the seafood platter for two was amazing! Try the battered oysters, you won't be disappointed.

We had dinner at Breakers last night after it was recommended to us. It didn't disappoint. Atmosphere very good indeed, food excellent, service first class and not as expensive as it could have been. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and go there again ourselves.

Visited Breakers after reading reviews naming it as the best restaurant in Warrnambool. Ordered the seafood platter for 2 at $155 & have to say was a major disappointment. Everything looked tired and either heated up repeatedly or in the case of the cold prawns & smoked salmon just not very fresh. It was completely dead which for a restaurant... More

Service was good but food let this place down. Was recommended to us for a good seafood restaurant but disappointed. Crayfish spring rolls too oily, market fish ok but best thing on plate was beans. Seafood platter too bulked up by fries but oysters and prawns were good. Semifreddo for dessert was great. All in all expected more.

Did have the pleasure of dining at this fantastic restaurant in Warrnambool and the menu list is mouth watering with exquisite variety. personally had the barramundi and this compared with the best anywhere across Australia. Service was brilliant throughout the evening and staff waited on our table with excellence.
