We wanted a reasonably priced, tasty meal at a venue where we could enjoy a good conversation. All of this was achieved at the RSL bistro. We were also impressed by the obvious pride taken in the appearance of the venue. Our only criticism was the over supply of meat on our plate - we had roast of the day.... More

We are very disappointed to read that your recent experience at our Lone Pine Bistro did not meet your expectations. The Bistro was fully booked over Easter school holidays, and whilst it may appear that the tables remained unoccupied, bookings were in the system for patrons later than the time you were there. We allow 2 hours per table so... More

We arrived for our 6:30pm booking and there was quite a long queue of people waiting to be seated. Instead of being annoyed about this, we took it as a sign that the food must be good and we were right! It was also a very busy place for a Wednesday night, in school holidays though! The menu is small... More

We ate here with the 12 and 13 yr olds. The three of us had the roast. Generous portions and the food was beautiful! No gristly cheap roast here. The rump roast melted in your mouth! Great spot to eat with kids. Fast friendly service.

My husband and I celebrated an anniversary with dinner. We have to say we were astounded that a restaurant charging over $30 for meals would find it acceptable for children to be allowed to run rampant through the restaurant while screaming and arguing with each other and their parents at full volume.

Twenty-odd members of the Chevrolet Car Club visited on Sunday afternoon in conjunction with a trip to the National Vietnam Veterans' Museum.
