your average RSL club (Returned Services League). Cheap drinks and OK restaurant. Unfortunately at my visit, the kischen was being revamped and the fare was not up to scratxh. I am sure this is a temporary abberation

“Great view from bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Right on the Esplanade the RSL serves drinks and great meals.
Generous serves for the hungry traveller and locals alike.
Visitors are welcome.
Make sure you have a drink in the front bar overlooking the Esplanade for a great tropical view.

“Functional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We weren't expecting much and thats what we got. We had 2 roast meals and 2 kids meals. The food was adequate but not very tasty. Roast was $17.90 each. I found the staff to be only as courteous as was necessary with an air of indifference. Smile and be friendly, you work in hospitality for heavens sake, and you're not doing me a favour because Im paying for my meal! Its like a big food hall and if you are looking for a break from the formality of going to regular restaurants then this is fine.

“Expected More”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The service was great but our expectations of the food let us down - on one hand, my partners portion was minimal to say the least and not appertising yet my portion was huge but again not appertising, neither of us finished the meal and we left disappointed. Even though we arrived at 1.45pm, and there were only 6 others in the resturant, the tables had'nt been cleaned from the previous patrons and the 4 staff were not being pro-active, I had to ask for a swab and was going to clean the table myself, but my request prompted wait staff to clean our table. Disappointing to say the least.
