First Judges’ Comments 2017

On-trend pan-asian restaurant & wine bar in Geelong

Frankie is a stylishly refurbished restaurant and wine bar in a graceful former bank building opposite Johnston Park in Geelong CBD (formerly occupied by Qban).  Now thoroughly modernised in terms of décor, Pan-Asian cuisine inspired by up-market versions of street food concepts, and the elegant cocktail bar, Frankie it is very much on trend.  Here you can enjoy the stylish décor, delicious meals that don’t weigh you down, a great array of good wines, beers and cocktails, and customer service that is friendly, professional and relaxed. The Asian-fusion menu is sure to impress with “Smaller” items perfect for bar snacks or entrées, and a selection of more substantial curries and Baos.  Stand outs included; Bao and Banh Mi, Chilli Garlic Calamari, Shitake Bao, Duck Bao, Pankakes and Fritters. The value for money, particularly for mains was good.  It will be exciting to see how people who love to eat out in Geelong respond to this Pan Asian restaurant and wine bar concept.  It deserves to win a substantial following.
