We were just going to eat in our room for dinner but then decided to dine at the restaurant. Option of A La Carte or Sunday Carvery Buffet. Like us a majority of people decided on the Buffet. Plenty of selection and the food was well prepared. In the morning we had buffet breakfast as part of our package; plenty... More

Food was small in portions and my salmon was a tad over cooked. Service was good but waitress sent us to the bar when we arrived saying they were not ready to seat anymore customers yet, even though the restaurants was only quarter full. The fish and chips my husband had was nice.

My husband & I just celebrated our anniversary here tonight! Chis the waiter was awesome. The food was better than expected. Scallops, barramundi, lamb & cheery mousse sphere was memorable. Schancks for the complimentary bubbles very thoughtful. Topped off a great stay here.

I have dined at the RACV Cape Schanck Resort more than a dozen times, with the majority being for the Sunday night carvery buffet, last Sunday I was surprised to see they have discontinued this. The restaurant has always been conflicted... are they 'fine dining' or a 'bistro', given that table service has never been a strength taking the buffet... More

We had a lovely evening, a wonderful waiter, happy and helpful. Food was good, we felt it required hotter plates, as it cooled fast.

We drove past the resort and thought we would check out lunch options. Ended up with 2 course lunch offer. Stunning goats cheese panecotta entree and fabulous beer battered fish for main. Hubby had a lemon tart instead of entree. Plu a a glass of wine for $40. Really enjoyed.

We were looked after by a wonderful staff member Leigh. She dealt with my questions, dietary requirements and cake. Our family had an unforgettable lunch to celebrate a special occasion. All food and drinks were of a high standard. The customer service 5 star. Thank you.

We stayed at the RACV Cape Schanck and thought we might try their restaurant for dinner on the first night. We were amazed at the high quality of food. There was great ambience, service was excellent. It was reasonably priced, similar to all the other restaurants around Mornington Peninsula. Will be back again. Thanks!

Lovely dinner. Efficient and excellent service. Beautifully presented food. The restaurant has a nice ambience with a fireplace in the middle. Adrian served us and deserves a mention for his great service. The food was delicious. The crime brûlée was the highlight. It's a bit of a walk from the rooms so you need to drive to the restaurant.
