Having been here a few times my wife and I called in for a late light lunch.I ordered the smoked salmon focaccia.Unfortunately the focaccia seemed more like a bun that you,d get with a hamburger and it was slightly burnt.Also we were harassed by 2 determined sparrows.Lovely ambience still but... read more

Fantastic selection of breakfast dishes. Reasonably priced. A few wasps hanging around the outside tables. Plenty of tables inside. Always busy.

We had breakfast ( bacon & eggs, tomatoes) here the food was good BUT served on a cold plate so it gets cold quick. Friendly service, outdoor seating, seagulls waiting for leftovers but can't be helped. The price is was not to bad, enjoyed the food..

I would not go back to Gullivers if I was paid. Upon entering this excuse of an eatery not once were we greeted or acknowledged. We were served very abruptly and told we were to put sugars in the coffee ourselves. We then explained we wanted our coffees in take away cups, the cashier then agreed to pop the sugars... More

I think not great is a polite way to sum this dump up. Very very very ordinary. Staff were friendly enough but the food and drink quality needs a helluva lot of work. I think the owners need to start getting the basics right and build up from the bottom... because at the moment they cannot sink any lower.

It appeared that this business may have recently been sold it seemed disorganised. Too few staff. Long wait times. Don't even start me on the toilets - filthy. Hopefully however just teething problems since is a great location. We had breakfast there.

Had a coffee and bacon and egg roll. Coffee was cold. Roll was just full of Oil. Toilets were filthy and broken. There were cockroaches throughout the meals area. Must have changed owners. As ate there 4 years ago and could not fault.

Went to eat at this terrible place today and would never return. Firstly when ordering the food which was CASH ONLY we gave them two twenty dollar notes for our $28 dollar meal and got a filthy look followed by demands that we give exact money, we did not have it so she reluctantly gave us some change in which...

READ THE REVIEWS FOR THIS PLACE! DONT BOTHER TRYING FOR YOURSELF. FOOD TERRIBLE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE APPALLING!! Probably used to be a great place and bought out by people only interested in making cash to send overseas rather than creating an enjoyable experience. We have been to many of the cafes on phillip Island and thought we would try Gullivers... More

My wife & I went to Gulliver's only for a takeaway meal. I ordered a "Seafood Bite" or something which comprised of 3 types of seafood & chips, my wife only ordered a 1/4 chicken because she said she would have some of my chips. When we returned home with our "meals" I was staggered by the pathetic serving of... More
