Coffee ok, skip the meal

The coffee was ok, but the meal was slow, seating was cramped and cold and the waitress seemed bored with the entire process. Not worth the wait....

We walked into Gullivers this morning for a quick bite to eat with our one year old son. We have been past numerous times and have always wanted to try it out. When we walked in, we approached a staff member who was clearing tables to ask if they had high chairs available. Upon saying "excuse me", the staff member... More

We has a lunch and a breakfast at Gullivers on a recent overnight trip to Phillip Island. My expectations were not high, as the property's appearance was a little scruffy, but the food for both meals was absolutely excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to eat a tasty meal if passing through Cowes.

Enjoyed a nice breakfast from this place. Has a warm welcoming feel with an open fireplace which was perfect on such a cold winter's day. Service was quick meal served promptly. Coffee was average but overall enjoyable.

Very good breakfast and lunch menu. Would recommend the vegetarian omelet. Very friendly staff and good ambience when open fire is going.

This cafe/restaurant was very average. The service was slow and the food was not worth the wait. The staff seemed inexperienced, but the layout at decor was nice and cosy. Good, but not the best.

Couldn't eat here as they don't even offer 1 vegetarian main meal. Quite shocked at this. Very disappointing

Seemed to be bit of a tourist trap. Food was average and took a long time to come. Admittedly it was a long weekend. It was OK but certainly nothing better than that.
