Moriac Hotel has recently undergone some renovations, and again started serving food from their kitchen. I went there a few weeks after the completion of the renovation. I’m not sure how well the kitchen is going, as when I went there the dining area was rather empty. But it is still early days.
The starting plate with dips, olives, cheese, crisp bread and other goodies was well worth it. The cheese was served at room temperature and the dips were creamy and flavoursome.
The mains were a bit of a mixed bag. There aren’t any vegetarian options on the menu apart from a pasta. Being the only vegetarian option, you would think the flavours would really be there, but unfortunately they aren’t. There are a couple of fish dishes and one prawn dish, but the remainder of the menu is meat, meat, meat. There were no complaints about the mixed grill or Moroccan chicken. The parmas our table ordered were a bit of a mixed bag. One was cooked to perfection, while the other was a bit soggy on the outside. The parmas are definitely a decent size, and give some of the others I’ve seen around Geelong a run for their money.
The price of the food here is a little on the expensive side for what you get. It is still early days, so maybe they’ll bring the prices down yet. Not really worth it for a vegetarian in my opinion.
