Unfortunately they are ore concerned about paying 20c for a credit card or EFTPOS fee than actually selling you food. minimum card spend is $20 ! My question is am I the only aussie... More

We had breakfast at Gullivers on our overnight trip to Phillip Island. The staff was friendly and the food was plentiful and served quickly. Great Coffee and Chai latte. The meal was tasty and good value for money. We truly enjoyed our breakfast and no hesitation on recommending it to anyone passing Cowes.

The weather allowed outdoor eating,the menu is good and the staff friendly. My partner and I both had soup - Thai Pumpkin (yum) and Potato & Leek (compliments to the chef best ever) served with toasted sourdough bread. You can eat indoors but if possible good location to watch the world pass by.

What a joke. $20 minimum EFTPOS. Ok if you have a family you are buying for but it you are on your own and only want a quick bite to takeaway or coffee it's a rip off. I. I've been to places where there is a $10 minimum which is fair enough...but $20! Lost a customer and will not return.

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.

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....

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.
