“Good club food, fresh cold seafood, cranky staff member”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We went to the RSl with a group on a Friday night and found the food was honest and of ample proportions. The catering staff point of sale was not so helpful and her attitude dampened our night. During the day this would have fantastic views.

“Deep fried Club food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

A great venue with beautiful views and great staff let down by average food. When the restaurant was open upstairs it was much better but they need to get a better menu and someone who cares about food. Then it will be sensational

“great food, great location with views of the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Located right on the channel of the lake inlet, this bistro has a pleasant outlook, great food and cheap drinks.
An ideal place to dine on a cold winters day where the sun basks the dining room.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

My husband and were looking forward to a nice lunch, based on some of the reviews we read.
This wasn't to be, unfortunately the food was quite ordinary, my husband ordered Bangers and mash, he didn't expect much but he couldn't eat the mash at all as it had a bad potato in it, I ordered the risotto of the day, bacon and mushroom, quite salty and I had to add half a glass if wine to it to make it palatable, it was so sticky. The water view would have been nice but all window seats were taken even though we were quite early. Also I advise you bring a cardigan, it was so drafty.
