cheap 2Picture this: you’re sitting at CQ overlooking the beautiful bay, whilst sipping on an expertly made cocktail as the sun sets. It couldn’t get much better than this right? Well it could and does, as CQ also dishes up quality snacks for a more than reasonable price.
With loft ceilings, three balconies and a double sided fireplace, the interior of the venue is more than enough to draw you through the big glass doors. Once there, CQ is the perfect spot for a cheeky after work drink or a mid-week dinner with friends.
At CQ the dishes are tailored around the idea of sharing them with friends whilst catching up on good times. The menu features a decent selection of tapas style dishes and pizzas, though there are more substantial meal options for those who want it.
The pizzas are the best value for money and are a little bit on the gourmet side to give you that little bit extra. With options like the smoked salmon, fennel, dill, capers and sour cream pizza, you’ll be stuck for choice.
Though if the Italian cuisine isn’t on your radar, choose from meatball sliders, Japanese style popcorn chicken, coriander spiced baby calamari or many more Asian and Western inspired dishes. But let’s face it, you’ve come here for the cocktails and they do that damn well. They’ve got the classics covered with a few exotic cocktails thrown in. If you’re a big coffee fan give the espresso martini a try.
Open Wednesdays & Thursdays from 4pm and Friday, Saturdays and Sunday’s from 12pm.
Level 1, Cunningham Pier 10 Western Beach Foreshore Rd, Geelong / ph: 03 5222 6233
