OK but not great. Stuck in a corner with a 30 min wait although it was only 15 mins till we got served. Food was OK.

“Not what we were expecting”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Currumbin RSL is not like your usual RSL, this had an independent restaurant in it which was VERY classy and a little uncomfortable. It may have been better if we knew what this RSL was like but we went in unprepared. We expected to pay your usual $12 to $15 for a chicken parmi, instead paying about $20 because it was all we liked the sound of and the cheapest thing on the menu.

Hi Meegan
Sorry to hear you were suprised by what you found. Alleys Restaurant is an a la carte restaurant within Currumbin RSL and we receive a lot of praise for what we offer. However if this is not your style, we also have a cafe which sits next to the restaurant and offers sandwiches, hot and cold dishes like quiches and gourmet wraps, fresh, made to order crepes, Mexican style food; the list goes on - and nothing is over $15.
Hopefully you try us again soon
