Gobsmacked at how easily people seem to be dazzled by attractive young staff with overweening confidence, so that poor service, appalling ambience and average food is overlooked. We should have known better after a similar experience several years ago, but were persuaded by friends to join them for a meal. Never again! As previously, the service was offhand and intermittent,... More

What a terribly unpleasant and misleading review. You booked the very last table in the restaurant for a Sunday lunch. If you had planned your visit with a bit more notice, then you could have had a window table away from the bar. I have chosen to go down the track of having bar service rather than table service for... More

We held a dinner for 26 at the Victory and we could not fault it. The food was fantastic, the service quick and the wait only 40 minutes which was pretty impressive considering the numbers we had. Before we came across the Victory we were unsure where to hold a dinner for such a large number considering most venues are... More

Had dinner here later in the evening after our day on the wine tour, what a great way to finish a day. The food and service was excellent and they even have their own little wine cellar that you can go down and choose your wine. It has a lovely view of Willunga,

We have been to The Victory often as we have a beach house in the area and takes friends up there for a meal. I have also dined in the wine cellar with a food/wine club. On all occasions it has been a delight. The indoor or outdoor daytime dining is with a spectacular view north up the coastline, it's... More

Really disappointed by the bad service at the Victory Hotel. We waited over 45min for our average meal, had to ask twice how long it would take.Staff really not intrested in providing any customer service. Next time we are in the area we will drive on past and look for lunch somewhere else.

I am disappointed with your comments. Your meal took 25 minutes to arrive at your table on what was a busy day. You were rude to my efficient, hard-working staff and myself with no justification. We are not a fast food outlet and pride ourselves in providing delicious, well presented meals in an acceptable time frame. We served a total... More

We frequently visit the victory it's our local pub. We have eaten many many meals there. The specials board is always full of delicious locally sourced dishes. The pokie room is well hidden so the dining area feels more intimate, it can be quite noisy and busy when fully booked but the view helps make up for it. The cellar... More

We (6 adults, 6 kids) stopped for a Sunday lunch yesterday, and as always, the view was great, and having a gin and tonic under the big tree looking over the coast was lovely. While the food was 'good' it wasn't spectacular, and while the service too was generally good and friendly, there was one waitress who really couldn't be... More

Stunning attention to detail in terms of decor. Nice menu. Beautiful wines. Annoying to have to go to the bar for drinks. Nice wait staff. Noisy environment. Be sure to book! Check out the cellar room downstairs!

Having eaten at the Victory over a number of summers and rating it 4/5 on past occurrences, we must say that our experience this time was extremely disappointing. Despite being at the top of the booking list and an early booking, we were placed on the only table in the sun in 45 degree heat. To the staff's credit they... More

I did like the food but the atmosphere was crazy. The doors leading out to the lawn are in the middle of where people are eating so it is very distracting and the longer we were there the louder it got! The best thing was the sunset over the bay.
