We were hungry when we arrived in Lakes Entrance for a short break but our resort did not have a restaurant open for dinner. We took the advice of the desk staff and walked up the road to the local RSL Club where the bistro seemed to be doing a good trade. We found a table easily and staff were... More

At holiday times it is recommended to Reseve a table as the tables fill up quick . This is a typical rsl setting as you would... More

Very popular with good variety of meals, with large servings. Can takeaway meals as well. Great range of desserts - we had to go back for a second time! Disappointed that they served the bangers and mash to locals but not to visitors

A wet and cold night, so we ran into the RSL Club for a meal. An unappetising menu, my husband had a huge pork chops with chips, and in desperation I had the chinese honey chicken with rice. Dry cold rice, too sweet chicken and not a sign of any vegetable, I am not returning.

A bit of an unusual experience for Scottish people, not familiar with the RSL organisation. Very nice club with plentiful well cooked food. A bit like a cross between a dining room in a large B&B back home and a well appointed working men's club. Reasonably priced.

Thank JollyScotland
