Hi Marie C Thank you for leaving such positive feedback. Taylor's Restaurant has been closed for quite some time now, I am guessing that the restaurant you visited was 'The Cape Kitchen'. Their Trip Advisor page can be found at: http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Restaurant_Review-g552227-d7856575-Reviews-The_Cape_Kitchen-Newhaven_Phillip_Island_Victoria.html Thank you again for taking the time to leave some feedback! Have a great Easter Break Warm regards Samantha More

Having heard great things about this place and its just reopened we thought we would pop in early for breakfast in Sunday. Despite the place having only 3 patrons and about 20 empty tables we were turned away as we hadn't booked. Shame as it looked lovely.

Hi NatBr0wn Thank you for leaving your feedback. Taylor's Waterfront has been closed for quite some time now, the restaurant I am guessing you are referring to would be 'The Cape Kitchen' which has opened in the same Waterfront location. It would have reopened on the weekend you left your review. Hope you have a great Easter Break! Kind regards... More

This was a good restaurant that has now closed down - it's being renovated by new owners and I don't know when it will open or what it will be like but we will give it a go when it does open

The view is amazing and there's nothing better than eating here watching the sun set before heading off to see the Penguins. I was surprised for a Saturday night in summer that the place was so empty. The room really needs a refurb. It resembles more a truck stop on a highway then it does a licenced restaurant. However with... More

It is worth going just to sit in the bay window watching the surf roll in. We chose seafood and werent disappointed. The Seafood Basket was hugh. A side dish of steamed Bok Choi and Shittake mushrooms left us searching for the mushrooms but overall the food was very good. Why restaurants have to play KennyG background music I do... More
