Award-winning restaurateur Barry Iddles has added an iconic venue at Queenscliff (that has laid idle for more than three years) to his stable of popular wining and dining outlets.
Iddles said:”I always tend to make snap decisions on Australia Day. Seven years ago it was to open elk Restaurant and Bar located at Falls Creek that has become one of the most successful restaurants in the picture-postcard alpine resort.
“Owing to a focus on locals, quality, price point and service, the apres ski venture at Victoria’s largest winter playground exceeded my expectations.
“My intention is to create a similar scenario at 360Q, that is located alongside the Queenscliff Harbour, where locals and visitors will be made welcome (at breakfast, lunch and dinner) by my team seven days a week.
“I have always loved Queenscliff & Point Lonsdale. We used to holiday at Barwon Heads when I was growing up and I recall watching ships head out through the rip.
“Queenscliff is regarded as a ‘sleeping giant’ and I am excited about the opportunity to revive this year-round resort’s dining precinct. My aim, with the support of the accommodation operators, is to create a vibe that will encourage the local community to appreciate the reopening of a venue that has been closed far too long.
“I’ll tweak and freshen up 360Q to create an upstairs section that’s ideal for event planners and bridal parties. Downstairs will include an opportunity for locals to order an express meal for $22 that includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink.
“The 360Q menu and wine list (which includes numerous local wines) should resonate with residents of Queenscliff and nearby communities such as Point Lonsdale, Clifton Springs, Port Arlington, Drysdale, Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads
“After many years running the restaurant and food outlets at Sorrento Couta Sailing Club (on the other side of the bay) I will now focus on enhancing the attributes of the region with local beers, ciders and wines.
