Phillip Island RSL Overview

Located at the gateway to Cowes, the Phillip Island RSL is a favourite among locals and visitors for a drink, a bite to eat and a place to catch-up with friends, in a smart indoor and outdoor dining space. Using the island's famously fresh produce including fish from San Remo Fisherman's Co-op, a seasonal menu features old favourites and contemporary international flavours; as well as a range of daily specials to keep locals coming back for more. Opt for a dish of plump seared scallops on a bed of sweet potato puree and bacon crumb, before an entrée of chicken satay tenderloins and delve into a main like pork cutlets on creamy mash potato with greens beans and an apple balsamic jus. Phillip Island RSL also offers many gluten free options from entrees through to dessert.
