La Cachette Bistrot is located just metres from the famous Geelong Waterfront, tucked away down Steampacket Place.
La Cachette translates from French as "the hiding place" or "the hideaway". Hide-away with us for a few hours and enjoy an amazing dining experience.
Geelong, just an hour from Melbourne, is the gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula, the Surf Coast, the Great Ocean Road, and the magnificent Great Otway National Park.
Come and see why so many reviews rate us the best restaurant in Geelong.
Geelong born Matt comes with a well-credentialled food pedigree. Previous generations of his paternal family operated a local bakery for over 100 years, and the maternal side were butchers, cheesemakers and operated a Cantina in provincial Italy, while others were longstanding Green Grocers nourishing the people of Geelong.
So, after travelling to Europe to hone his craft at numerous Michelin Star restaurants in Italy and UK and a stint in Lyon, where he became immersed in Bistronomy (beautiful seasonal food and wine prepared and shared in a relaxed environment), he returned to his home town to showcase and share with local and visiting diners what the Geelong region has to offer and how it can be transformed and then combined with old-school hospitality.
"Our food is schooled in tradition but not bound by it....No trickery and mucking about with it.
We just want people to have a lovely meal and a lovely time, and want to come back. To make us their Local!"
