We tried to get a bistro meal at the local RSL. It looks like the bistro is only open at night. Disappointing given the other options in town. Could be a good revenue raiser for them to look at weekend lunchtime meals.

Large size meals. Old fashioned but ok. Had wheelchair access to restaurant, but then to go to the toilet was extremely difficult. Would not go again if with friends needing a disability friendly toilet.
