Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Could not find much in terms of places to eat and stumbled upon the RSL. Don't serve diner till 6pm as most other places also do but was not disappointed.
Casual and average price, fast and efficent. All we needed.
Great for kids but fills up fast. If there at 6pm the standing for the last post as the lights go off is a touching experience.

“Not just another Restaurant in a Club”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Having been here many times (30+) during Christmas holiday peak season over a period of 10 years, my parftner and I went here during the off peak season during a weekend away at the end of August 2012 (a BIG birthday date).
Peak Season - YOU HAVE TO BOOK and preferably the day before.
Off Peak - It's advisable to book, but some walk up tables are available.

It seems they try to have two sessions, a 6PM sharp and another at 7:30PM.
As a result, the 6PM session is run like a military operation - no pun intended.
This is a large restaurant and - at a guess - seats maybe 200+ people.
To see all the friendly staff in action including the numerous chefs doing their bit in plain view, is fascinating to watch. Any owner of a largish cafe / restaurant could learn many lessons on how to handle large numbers in a short time frame.

The food was very good without being sensational. I'd call it up market pub food, and the prices were reasonable.
Service was excellent.
Ambience or whatever you want call it is fairly typical for a Club style Restaurant.

Overall, if you want a better than average pub meal, at reasonable prices and you plan ahead by pre-booking, then you won't be disappointed.

“Best steaks in town!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Dined here on numerous occasions and each time the food has been excellent. I'm a coeliac which can make dining out a bit of a trial to say the least but the staff here were very helpful and accommodating, always making sure I was catered for and served delicious meals.
