I heard of this place from an article which said it was a must visit when driving through Apollo bay. It's a nice quiet rustic restaurant with locally sourced fresh produce. Food was amazing and service was outstanding.

This restaurant primarily does seafood dishes however they do accommodate us who prefer land based animals. I had a shepherds pie and it was delicious. As a side we got the potatoes and to be honest I could have just eaten those. They were amazing!

The staff serving at La Bimba were very good and friendly but the food was very expensive and very ordinary. Pork was very stringy and the sauce overpowered any pork taste. $15 for each lot of side vegetables is exorbitant. For the price you pay,...More
