For great-tasting food and a fantastic atmosphere, with “something a bit different”, Croatian Club Geelong is the place to go.
“It’s always lively – there’s always something happening here,” says function manager Kata Jurjevic.
The club’s fish night is Kata’s favourite, with newly returned chef Jack Xu cooking fresh snapper, squid and garfish on an open-fire grill.
Friday Fish Night is also a family favourite with a jumping castle and face painter to keep the kids entertained.
“That’s our busiest night,” Kata says.
Jack has 25 years in the business, and his menu is delicious mix of bistro classics and Croatian favourites, like cabbage rolls and traditional meats.
“He’s very friendly and loves the Croatian community which is great,” Kata says.
“He’s an excellent chef, and he’s always willing to go above and beyond.”
Kata has worked at the club as function manager since October, and is proud to be part of the Croatian community.
“There’s a big Croatian representation in Geelong, especially in Bell Park,” she says.
But everyone is welcome at the club and many local ethnic groups hold their annual functions there.
“We get a quite a big mixture,” Kata says.
The club has AFL on the big screen and, of course, the Croatian soccer team’s international games.
Kata says her friendly staff work hard to create an enjoyable experience for customers.
“Most of them are in the community – their parents are members here.”
