A lovely restaurant that adds an extra layer of sophistication to everyday ingredients, Empire Grill is one to look out for in Geelong.
The attention to detail that they show in their food extends to the restaurant itself. Resembling all the summer magic of the Mediterranean, Empire Grill infuses all the characteristics of high-end dining - like crisp white tablecloths, intricate table settings and elegant décor - with breezy furniture, a beachy colour scheme and twinkly fairy lights. The result? An elevated dining experience that feels like a summer vacation at the same time.
As the name suggests, their grill is the main attraction. Influenced by both European and Australian cuisines, the menu is a mixing pot of grilled deliciousness that ranges from glazed lamb ribs to scallops with a chorizo crumb and slow braised Otway pork belly.
Bigger plates include a stunning beef cheek dish that is slow cooked for the ultimate succulence and served with creamy mash.
Moroccan spiced lamb is also thrown onto the grill for fall-off-the-bone tenderness and served with tagine vegetables and sweet pomegranate jus. Of course, nothing benefits from the grill quite like the beef eye fillet that is cooked to your liking and served with cajun spiced chips and a sauce of your choice.
When it comes to grilled plates, Empire Grill is one step above the rest.
