Been away from the island for several years & recently returned. Used to go here regularly when it was Shearwater Restaurant & loved it & after having breakfast here on Sunday morning for my wife’s birthday we will be regulars here again at what is now Cape Kitchen. The service was five star as was the coffee which came with a side order of binoculars so we could scan for whales 🐳When our breakfast arrived the presentation was as good as anything you will see on a Masterchef grand final & both our meals were delicious & the fudge brownie with a candle in it for my wife was a lovely touch 😋 Had a table at the front with the ocean only meters away 👍🏻Spectacular 👍🏻 Only advice I have is to get there early & make sure you have a booking. We booked in for 8.30 & were the first customers but by the time we left the place was jumping. Book now & get yourself out to Cape Kitchen .. It’s a 10 out of 10 🌟 Tezz’s & Ree Turner 💛

Definitely book in advance and ask for the middle window seat. This tip made our dining experience all the more special. Food was delicious and seafood fresh. The view was absolutely spectacular. Lovely wait staff. Our concerns were addressed by management promptly and appropriately which was much appreciated.

We were on holiday and had The Cape Kitchen recommended as a great venue for breakfast. The venue delivered! It's position on the Cape and the ability to go outdoors to explore was fabulous and then there was the food - beautifully presented and a great selection of delicious local produce. We went back a second time in the same week just so that we could try more from the menu!

Early Sunday breakfast date. We were warmly welcomed and as the first people there got the best view. Table service was efficient and the food delicious although 4 small fritters and a lot of greens left me wondering if I would have enjoyed a slice of toast or some nibble more. My husbands breakfast basket was deemed delicious. All in all a delicious breakfast with a stunning view and excellent service

On my first time at The Cape Kitchen I was so impressed by the food, service and spectacular location that I booked again for lunch two days later. The views of the Southern Ocean are breathtaking. Our meals were inventive, the preparation masterly and the presentation superb. The beef cheeks were incredible as was the barramundi. All delicious!

I drove over from the Mornington Peninsula to go to Cape Kitchen for lunch with friends and it was well worth the trip. Excellent service and food was good enough to be Michelin rated. The wine list needs a new copy as it was quite well worn, but that wAs our only negative comment. Will certainly be going back as one of us is about to live on Philip Island.
