“Warnie rissole has a great view & great staff”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Warrnambool RSL is about 2 mins drive from the main drag and is located across from Lake Pertobe, giving it a great view from the Saltwater Bistro's huge windows. The seats near the windows seem to be reserved by knowing locals but you can still see the view from a few tables in.

The menu is your typical RSL Australian pub food with generous portion sizes. There is a variety of parma’s, a lamb roast (you would definitely miss a date with Tom Cruise for), seafood platter, fish and chips, steaks etc. I saw a couple of bad reviews on the steak but ours was beautifully cooked with a choice of sauces, veggies or salad and chips. The prices of your average meal was around $16-25.

The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful.

A good venue for families.

“All at Sea”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Dinner anywhere in town is a treat compared to the Warrnambool RSL. They could not get it more wrong. Wine list was so bad we had a glass of cider. Dinner was left virtually untouched and not a word from staff as the table was cleared. Enjoy crinkle cut chips from the local supermarket?; then you will love this place. Fish of the day!. Don't even ask. Best view in Warrnambool and all downhill from there.

“Fast Service”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I don't think I've ever had a steak delivered so quickly to my table. As it was steak night they must have had a few on the go.

Food was good, view was really good.
