If you are looking for a good quality meal then try Pete's Place (52632500) on the corner of McMillan Street and the Great Ocean Road. Recommend that you make a booking as they tend to get fairly busy and depending on the time of the year they may have two sittings at night but it’s worth it. A good range of wines and you can also take your own bottled wine with a corkage charge. The staff are friendly and the service excellent. Recommend the goats’ cheese with pear, flash fried calamari, seafood and chorizo pasta and the lamb shanks.
Plenty of tables out the front on the deck as well as an open fire place in side for the cold evenings.
Anglesea Backpackers, 40 Noble St (Noble St turns off the Great Ocean Rd south of the main shops and just south of the bridge – be careful if driving over the bridge, Noble St has a weird split at the intersection and it’s easy to go the wrong way up a one-way lane). ph 03 5263 2664. email firstname.lastname@example.org. A very clean and tidy small hostel with two 6-bed dorms and an ensuite room with a double and single bed. The walls are a bit thin so noise travels. The shower for the dorms is a bit cramped and the arm for the shower head is a bit manked. After dark a ring-tail possum walks along the power lines in front of the hostel – the manager might point it out to you. Internet $5 per half hour. Dorm beds summer from $23, winter from $20; ensuite room summer from $70, winter from $60. http://home.iprimus.com.au/angleseabackpacker
