“Great food, friendly staff, beautiful views”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We enjoyed several meals in the restaurant whilst staying at the resort. The schnitzels (with a range of topping options) are huge and tasty - excellent value. The pizzas are very nice but a little expensive. The choice of seafood dishes is wide, and great tasting - good value. Also enjoyed a pizza with happy hour drinks in the bar 5-7pm on two occasions.
All staff are very friendly.
Views of the golf course, surrounding hills, township of Normanville and the ocean (including some awesome sunsets).
Lunches and dinners only.

“A big thanks to the staff.”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

After being dissappointed in other restaurants and pubs in the area we were left with not many other options, until we stumbled on an add in the local magazine about a Peninsula Restaurant. Coming from Melbourne where eating out at a variety of great restaurants was our once a week treat, trying all cuisines and having a father who was a chef and also loving my traditional home cooking, my palate just didnt sit well with the quality and variety of food in the area. Afer ordering at the Peninsula the waitress recommended the local winery wine which perfectly accompanied my salmon dish. My partner had a red spicy marinara pasta dish which he said was the best marinara he had ever eaten. My salmon dish which was well presented unfortunately was a tad dry, I mentioned it to the staff at the end and they immediately gave us complimentary wine and dessert and promised to address to the chef and were very friendly. Now that is what I call looking after your customer, unlike another cafe which may be all pretty and arty had the poorest customer service and ignorant to our complaint of an unedible leathery steak. So thankyou Peninsula for giving us a wonderful evening with a spectacular view of the sunset.

“Delicious and best value in town”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I've eaten there a number of times over the past year and every time I've had a fantastic meal. The vegetarian pizza is the best I've ever had anywhere. The beef schnitzel is awesome and it took three of us to finish it! Loved the local beers they have on tap too. Great service and very kid friendly. We'll be back....

“Good food & lovely views”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Had dinner here with my partner last Friday night. Restaurant is in a big space, local artworks, broad balcony with dining seating also, views out to sea in the distance.

Menu choices were substantial; gourmets pizzas, range of interesting pasta dishes, schnitzel list, entrees & mains. Plenty of seafood dishes & some vegetarian dishes too. Prices are moderate ($29 for my Atlantic salmon) Service friendly & prompt. Menu should cater for most. Wine list ok, not very exciting but good to see local wines.

Our Atlantic salmon & schnitzel

“Pleasant lunch at the Links Lady Bay Resort”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We had lunch at the Links Lady bay Resort and found it quite enjoyable.

The staff were very friendly, it was in a great location and the views from the elevated position overlooking the golf course towards the sea was quite pleasant.

The lunch menu was really just a basic pub style selection such as Shnitzels, Fish & Chips, etc,but our meals were very tasty and well presented. Most lunch courses were a standard $15 cost which we thought more than reasonable.

We would certainly eat here again.
