After a cold and wet day sightseeing on beautiful Cowes island we dropped into the R.S.L. For tea. It was lovely and warm with easy parking by the door, a friendly welcome by the waiter was a good start. We ordered from a 'just right' menu. The corned beef melted in the mouth and the pear salad was well balanced.... More

Dear Sandy thank you for your lovely review - we are always thrilled to read about a happy customer's experience at our Lone Pine Bistro. The corned beef is one of my favourites and is actually grown right here on Phillip Island, hence why it is always so tender - organically grown grass fed! Your comments are shared with staff...

Very friendly and courteous staff, a range of fresh and locally sourced items on the menu, and an extensive wine list that the wait-staff were knowledgable about. We were accommodated well and the food was delicious and prompt. Highly recommended!

I am Gluten Free (not by choice) and am used to some pretty poor meals in places. Lone Pine was great, very good selection of gluten free meals and the servings were huge.

We took some friends for dinner on 29th April 2015. We dine there regularly and the meals are always good, but last Wednesday we experienced the best food, equal to a five star restaurant, the pork belly is to die for. We can't wait to go back and order the pork belly again.

Dear Sandra thank you for such positive feedback regarding our new menu. Our Executive Chef is very happy to read how much you enjoyed the pork belly. I can agree with you, it is literally "to die for" - wait til you try the lamb!!! We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

A great place to dine when staying in Cowes, or anywhere on Phillip Island. It is very busy but they manage to seat everyone and the food and service here is better than most restaurants. The meals came out quickly and she prices are very reasonable.

We ate here on a number of occasions. The three course Seniors are good value for money. The Specials seem to stay on the menu for a number of days. The wait staff are very attentive but ordering meals at the register can be slow. This is a popular place so it pays to book. We appreciated the disabled access... More

Hi Mim, thanks for your feedback. it is customary for children's meals to be served first, before the adult meal unless otherwise advised at the time of ordering. Being a holiday weekend, wait times for meals are a little longer than usual. warm regards and hope you will visit us again in the near future. More

Ordered the chicken parmigiana, beer battered gummy and a kids fish and chips - over $50 in total. Portion sizes were small as compared to each meals price.. As are drinks... pricy.. On the plus the food was fresh and tasty.
