We all loved the food, coffee was amazing and the outside games for this kids were well used. One small suggestion is to simplify the kids pancakes. Just some fresh berries would have been received better (although they were delicious just a not for younger kids).
The service from the staff was just wonderful, cannot wait to come back.

We came for breakfast. The views are amazing however the food was ordinary despite the fancy menu. My husband asked for crispy bacon, which was only cooked medium. The milk in his coffee was off and had to be remade. I had the corn and zuccini cakes. They were too fried for my liking. Colouring provided for kids was a bonus.

Not just the best breakfast on the Island but the best meal, full stop.

Excellent service, amazing food and a brilliant view. The food and service would be of high quality anywhere, blows everyone else away down at Phillip Island.

The food and service were both very good. What was disappointing was first the acoustics in the restaurant, and second, what appeared to be temporary flooring and the quality of the table and chairs

We enjoyed our time at Cape Kitchen. Great location with lovely views. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Menu seems limited and some dishes (starters) seemed pricey, but the mains were reasonable. The barramundi dish was beautiful. Side dishes were lovely. Would be nice to see some more vegetarian and summery type dishes on menu as the exisiting lunch menu seems autumnal. Kitchen service a little slow but the wait was worth it. Would definitely come again on our next visit to the island.

We arrived for our booking to find that the table was not ready, not a huge deal, it happens.

But, there were long delays between courses, with our dirty plates sitting on the table for almost half an hour before I had to get up and ask for them to be removed.

The pork belly had no proper crackle, it was rubbery.

I did pass on the feedback to the staff when we were paying and they mentioned that we were not the only people to mention the issue with the pork.

The gnocchi was really lovely though, as were the prawns for entree.

I would have expected them to comp coffee or something as at close to $200 for a three course lunch you would expect the service and food to be of a pretty high standard.

We absolutely loved the view. The food was excellent and the service great.
A little expensive to be able to eat here every week though we would love too however we will be back for special occasions.
Our opinion the best restaurant on the island.

We visited The Cape Kitchen for a special occasion and truly loved the visit. Its great to a restaurant using good quality , thoughtful and local produce as surprisingly not much of this is offered locally. The view is spectacular and the service was attentive and friendly. What an enjoyable experience - Thank you!

The view is really lovely and worth the visit.
We had breakfast and it was very nice, fancy rather than substantial.
My only disappointment was that toast is not served with any breakfast. This is a must in my book when you are having eggs and I was left struggling with a plate of yolk at the end. It also would make the meal more filling.
I would still go back

We really like this place as a venue with the beautiful views.

However the food standard is really inconsistent which is a shame.
My meal on Monday was really poor with soggy lettuce, undercooked eggs and 3 mushrooms only, when I specifically ordered the mushroom dish. Usually there are 5 or 6 mushrooms.
I pointed this out to the waitress who was lovely and said she would provide the chef with feedback. Thank you for this.

The other less than best thing is that the floors never seem to be clean and often there is a dead fly on the floor or window sill. Such a shame

Setting is beautiful, the view on the ocean is breathtaking ! We were lucky to have sun between stormy moments. Service was very attentive, kind and efficient ! The food was excellent even though the mains that took a little bit more time to be served could have been hotter and must have been waiting a little bit. Thank you for this very good experience, we will come back !
