Good food

Exactly what you would expect from an RSL/RSA with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Plenty to look at and worth the visit just to get a sense of the Islands military history

Two of us had dinner at the RSL. Decor is a bit old and basic but service and food were very good. My wife had a Thai beef salad and I had a chicken curry. Good serving sizes and reasonably presented. Prices were reasonable.

We ordered pan fried fish. The price was $25 per person. We were expecting big fish fillets and an extremely nice meal and we were very disappointed. The fillets were minimal and would hardly feed a cat. They were also overlooked. This meal should have been $12-15 not $25 - very overpriced and average. We paid $10 for the same... More

Called in for afternoon drink and stayed for dinner. The young lady on duty [ Sarah I think] was so friendly and personable. We told her she was worth more money and she agreed. The food was well presented and quite delicious. All of the group enjoyed their meal.

The Sunday lunch is a bbq, you choose your steak and sausages, write on your ticket how you like your steak cooked and take it out to the chef. Once cooked, it gets returned to you at your table and you go up for... More

Had a lovely meal for a good price - plenty of variety - and enjoyed the entertainment of a singer/guitarist.

I have no criticism to make following our visit, during which we only sat for a while and enjoyed a drink on our way home after dinner. The bistro and bar were typical of what one might expect, but my attention was caught by the Honour Roll of servicemen from Norfolk Island who had volunteered and fought in various wars.... More

When we arrived, we wanted to go somewhere casual, and have dinner and decided on the RSL club. It was clean and friendly and the food was very nice. Reasonable prices too.
