Good spot

The RSL is a good watering hole, visitors and vets alike are most welcome, go in and make your self known. The food is good And they have takeaway liquor.

Food was like home. Lots of information about servicemen of Norfolk Island and their history of service.

This is real RSL Club, plenty of memorabilia to look at, not taken over by glitzy poker machines. Love the atmosphere with plenty to look at and read while waiting for a meal. Simple bistro meals, good size, quality and value. Our 13th holiday on Norfolk and we usually manage at least one meal at the RSL, I can't recall... More

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.
