Cooking a chicken schnitzel to crisp and golden is something you a taught early on in culinary school. Can someone please give these Chef's a refresher course. Easily the worst Chicken Parma in the region. Undercooked soggy breadcrumbs so each mouthful tastes of porridge. I came here for dinner not breakfast. Will not be back. If you enjoy seniors food...

Headed down to Hotel for the $10 steak night on a Monday as I'd heard good reviews from locals; they were right! I ordered Medium-rare which was exactly what i got; I find it hard to get a perfectly cooked steak these days. The bartender also recommended an excellent cab sauv to go with the meal and was very knowledgable... More

Great water views the name suggests a hotel but it's a big open restaurant with a few levels. Offer basic food at a bit hire then basic pricing

Friendly service and environment plus you can enjoy a friendly poker game. Not too bad for pizza selection

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.
