They use shaved (rather than grated) parmesan on their carbonara, and their steak is usually done just right, so we tend to enjoy our meals here. They used to carry Miller on tap, which made this place REALLY special, but they stopped doing that about a year or so ago; they still have Miller in bottles so all is not... More

I'm not usually driven by price however we enjoyed great food and service at a very modest price indeed. If you're Cowes and particularly if your on the hungry side, the the Phillip Island Hotel is the place for dinner.

We got into cowes and decided to grab a pub style meal. We were hungry so ordered straight away. We ordered burgers a bit over priced at $23 each and a soft drink which was flat. They were big but you couldn't fit your mouth over the burger so ate with knife and fork. Meat tasted a little funny but... More

Three of us decided to stop at the Hotel for a bite to eat and a few drinks after a day at the beach. The benches outside were draped in lazy sunshine and it looked like an ideal spot to stop. Perusal of the menu showed typical pub fare; we thought 'why not?' and went inside to order. It was... More

Quite enjoyed 'hotel'. Only called in for a quick aperitif but the service was very friendly and accommodating and the views arguably the best on the island.

The soft shell crab was very good, the jugs of Cocktails went down a treat and good value to share. The service was excellent and the location and atmosphere was great

My family and I came to Phillip Island for the long weekend and went to 6 restaurants in total. Hotel was the worst by far in terms of service. We came at 4pm and our food did not come out until 445 with the waitress only bringing 2 meals. The other 2 were going to be another 10 minutes or... More

Keep walking past this place unless u only want a side of chips! "Medium" steaks were almost char grilled, received a plate of over roasted potatoes when they weren't even on the menu. Service was ok but staff not really concerned with delivering exceptional customer service and couldn't care less about feedback to chef. Far too expensive for a less... More

Had dinner on a very quiet night, staff seemed like they had somewhere else they would rather be. Chicken parma was nice, good chips. Scotch fillet was overcooked, dry and chewy, kid's cheeseburger was dry and way too big. Also cost us $90 and we only had mains and 1 drink each
