Enjoyed dinner on a couple of occasions during our holiday. Meals were large and very tasty, best part though was being able to have a quite drink with my wife while our son enjoyed the kids club.

Sometimes some 'alone together time' is all you need. Glad we could help. :) More

Outstanding meal for a club meal. Kids meals well sized and tasted great. I had the most magnificent spaghetti with clams and chilli and my wife's seafood basket she was very happy with. Great meal all round.

You can't beat a meal with seafood when you're on the coast. Our fresh local oysters are also particularly nice and worth the try. Great to hear that the kids found something they enjoyed eating too. More

Enjoyable game of barefoot bowls followed by a meal in the restaurant. Restaurant was overflowing but staff were efficient and meals rolled out for our large group promptly. A very enjoyable afternoon and dinner. Went back twice.

Many people have taken the opportunity to enjoy Barefoot Bowls, particularly of a late afternoon/evening. It's something that everyone of all ages can enjoy doing together. To be able to follow it up with dinner without having to travel to another venue is a bonus. Some larger groups organise for a barbeque afterwards in the Rockpool Gardens which they find... More

Came here for lunch. We ordered thai beef salad, BBQ pork belly(with rice and salad), and seafood risotto. The food were tasty and with good value. Definitely recommend for lunch.

Selecting what to have for lunch from our great lunch menu is possibly one of the most difficult decisions I have to make each day. We're pleased that you were also able to enjoy it. Hopefully you can come again soon to try another dish. More

We dined here on our first night in Merimbula. We wanted to go somewhere easy because we have a baby. This place was recommended by a few people in town and they had a selection of four meals for $10 on the particular night we were there. No sooner had we ordered our meal and it was on table. The...

Our Fab 4 menu is on offer Sunday and Monday nights. On these nights our regular menu is not available. The Fab 4 offers 4 dishes at just $10 each. It's definitely value for money. The choices are chicken schnitzel, chicken parmigiana, roast of the day or battered fish of the day, all served with your choices of chips, salad... More

The entertainment here is second to none. Top quality performers every time. Meals are fabulous, with fast efficient service. They have the Piano Bar for anyone who does not want to be bothered with heaps of kids in restaurant, but the food is no better there than the Bistro. The Piano is wonderful though. There is a kids room now... More

Of an evening, the Rockpool Café offers the same menu as the Pacific Bistro. Some people prefer the Bistro to take their children to, and then afterwards let them play in the child minding room, while others prefer the relaxed al fresco dining offered in the Rockpool Café. On Friday evenings, the piano bar opens in the Café. This is... More

The Rockpool restaurant was a lovely setting and not as many kids as the main bistro. The food was ordinary. The 'fresh grilled' long was rubbery and soaked in a floury, buttery sauce. The butterflied prawns were just fried prawns, nice but very ordinary and certainly not butterflied.

Our Rockpool Cafe continues to be a very popular venue for diners. The cafe has large glass sliding doors that can open up the inside to the outdoors. Outside is a lovely sunfilled paved garden area, with plenty of areas offering shade from the sun. The garden area also offers great protection from the wind on a windy day, and... More

CS is located in the middle of Merimbula and has an extensive range of amenities to suit almost any interest. They also have a shuttle bus service for those who would prefer not to drive home. For the punter, there's a TAB and pokies. But for family goers, barefoot lawn bowling, great dining facilities and child minding facilities on site.... More

Wow. That's a great review. I think the only thing you missed is our great line-up of entertainment we have this summer. If you're fortunate enough to be staying in Merimbula a bit longer, hopefully you will have time to enjoy some of these shows. See you at the club! :) More

OK food, nothing special. Usual fare for a club ... nothing that any of the three of us ate jumped out at us. Not what I would call value v the food we got. Even Zanzibar or the waterfront or any of the many Merimbula restaurants the food is ... well ... same price but Not the same quality

Thank you for taking the time to review our bistro. We have previously received many reviews indicating that people are happy with the value for money experience they have had. We offer a different bistro menu for lunch to that for dinner, so you may like to try the other at some stage. The Rockpool Cafe also offers another menu... More
