    This is a classy small restaurant. You are greeted at the door by the owner/manager and the staff is impeccably trained. Due to circumstances there menu is small but offers a good range of dishes. Their pizzas are fabulous - rustic and some very interesting varieties. Top marks.

    We've been to Centra many times for an evening meal and were a bit disappointed to see such a restricted menu ( sadly as a result of limited staff ). Having said that all our dishes were very enjoyable and lived up to their high standard ... Our table for 4 was very tight for space but with some juggling we managed ok. I think a refresh of tables / chairs is just about in order. Appreciate its tough post covid for venues like this but we will continue to patronage and enjoy their great food offerings

    We had a lovely time. The staff were really professional and prompt with their service. From when you walked into the restaurant, and getting greeted with a very friendly hello from quite a few staff, everyone made you feel very welcome and comfortable. The food was very well balanced, in the flavours, and the presentation was good as well. I highly recommend the Centra Hotel and thank you for a lovely evening.

    Centra is reliable, always serving good and reasonably priced food. Their wine list is well balanced, offering a range of local, national and international labels, grape styles and prices. The staff are well trained and attentive and trainee staff are supervised. All in all, an excellent package and over several years, Centra has established itself as our "go to" restaurant in Geelong

    We went to Centra on a cold and rainy night and the place was warm and cosy, as was the welcome! Can’t fault anything - the atmosphere was great, our waitress was lovely (and Italian - an extra bonus!). And the food was amazing…. from the entrees to dessert and the drinks in between. Thanks for a wonderful evening, we’ll definitely be back!

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.
