We stopped here for lunch on our way into Cowes. The lunch was excellent and we decided that we would probably eat here for the rest of our holiday. We enquired about the advertised 'Courtesy Bus' and was told it was for Members only, not visitors. I suggested to the member of staff that it looked as though the club... More

My husband and I celebrated an anniversary with dinner. We have to say we were astounded that a restaurant charging over $30 for meals would find it acceptable for children to be allowed to run rampant through the restaurant while screaming and arguing with each other and their parents at full volume. Neither parents nor management at this place exercised... More

Dear Rex and Debra Thank you for your recent feedback after your visit to our Lone Pine Bistro. We are disappointed that your experience did not meet your expectations and fully understand how uncomfortable screaming kids can be when you are trying to enjoy a meal out. There is, however, only so much our staff can do with parents and... More

Twenty-odd members of the Chevrolet Car Club visited on Sunday afternoon in conjunction with a trip to the National Vietnam Veterans' Museum. We later learned that the super bikes were also racing that day, but not to worry, the RSL had set aside three tables for our group and were well prepared for our late-ish arrival. Food was great, huge... More

We went with a bus group which was pre-booked and were allocated a quiet corner. Food was quite good, fairly priced and consistent as most RSLs are. However there were two areas which disappointed. Firstly, we asked by phone if there was an easy way to get a bus load registered in the foyer. We were told there were several... More

This is a typical RSL restaurant with good family food. We all enjoyed our meals of chicken parma and steak although the cesar salad had far too much sauce. However, the requested high chair was not available and the sign in process and seat allocation was not well handled and took far too long.
