Big meal servings, food was delicious. Try the desserts, they looked nice. Unfortunately they were put away while we were eating main, so didn't get opportunity to try ourselves.

Great value in terms of serving sizes but flavours a little bland. Asian menu is extensive but again poor flavours. Exception is garlic prawns which seem to be exceptional...go figure!

We had the chicken Kiev with chips & salad, battered flathead with chips & salad & ginger scallop stir fry. They would have to be the worst main meals we've ever had. The fish was frozen & obviously pre battered & pre cooked. Rubbery, tasteless & generally rubbish! The Kiev was awful as well, rubbery & tasteless with severely anaemic... More

Went with family, adults and kids. There were plenty of choices - kids meals,, 'normal' meals, Chinese meals and sweets. They are not restaurant meals, just good hearty meals. I don't think it is a complaint but the meals are big. We went for tea but they also serve lunch. Drinks are at 'bar' prices also. There is a kids... More

Mixed reviews had us wondering should we go or not. We went and I have to say it was The Worst Meal I have had on this Planet. A Fishermans basket of soggy and inedible chips for a base, on top greasy apologies for fish (processed Not fresh) done with a half fried batter and a side sauce which smelt... More

Called in for lunch in between fishing sessions on the wharf just across the road. They have an extensive chinese menu but we ate from the western menu. We both had local seafood which was excellent and very good value for money.

I had heard the RSL meals were supposed to be good but was disappointed. I had the salmon which was slightly overcooked skin was soggy and the hollandaise sauce was out of a packet. My husband had the fishermans basket which was ok but the usual fried up frozen stuff. It is disappointing that being across the road from fishing... More

Maybe our expectations were too high RSL not sure what type of Restaurant it is. Located in Glenara Motel, it is well patronised as are most RSL's. Mixture of eastern and western foods on offer as name suggests. Turned off by food offering that included 'processed' scallops in town renown for its fresh fish

Went here on night hoping for a nice meal at a reasonable price. The food was ordinary and surprisingly the fish (considering it's on the coast) was very ordinary. Will not be returning here, even the local take away offered better tasting fish and chips
