On arrival we were seated and served a complimentary wine as it was our anniversary. The staff very friendly , the starters and main meals were timely and no big waiting time. Food very nice highly recommend, but they only do breakfast and lunch. But we’ll worth it

The Cape Kitchen position is second to none overlooking the Bass coast. To top this the staff are attentive, pleasant, professional without losing the importance of being friendly. Strongly recommend The Cape Kitchen to friends and visitors and reason why it is our first choice to dine

We chose Cape Kitchen to celebrate our anniversary, because it's a favourite place to go on Phillip Island. The food and service were, as always, top notch. The wait staff are friendly and helpful, and out meals were delicious. And the view out to the ocean from those huge windows is such an added bonus.

One word sums it up.... magnificent. Views were amazing, staff were excellent and the food was to die for. We had the sourdough and a charcuterie board. The kids had the chicken and sweet potato chips. Mains we had the gnocchi and the pork belly. All were amazing. Would recommend this restaurant experience to anybody.

Cape Kitchen is a must do when in Phillip Island as the menu has a variety of dishes, breathtaking views, friendly and helpful staff. We had brunch there and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. It was delicious and generous. The coffee was excellent and cakes superb. We will definitely return to Cape Kitchen when in Phillip Island.

We were a group of six for breakfast. The vista is really beautiful and the decor was well appointed. The coffee was the best we’ve had on the Island! However our Cooked breakfasts although pleasing to the eye were cold. Just expect top notch when paying upper end prices.

Great food, views and service. I should get hearing aids but I’d rather complain about the noise levels. Maybe some noise deadening ceiling features would help to make this a 5 out of 5

Delicious food, lovingly prepared...a tad pricey but worth it. I just wish the kids menu was better value...both kids were still hungry after having a breakfast meal each plus sharing a sweet meal....

Our experience was rather negative. The noise level was very high - unsuitable for people with hearing aids. It was galling to wait about three-quarters of an hour for our food when we had such a limitation on conversation. The food was very good when it arrived!

Unfortunately, the view from our Window table was restricted due to the smoke from bushfires. As requested we sat by the windows and were still able to see the waters edge. Normally, the view would be outstanding. Food was lovely but quite smallish sizes for the price. Staff very friendly and attentive. My only negative is the noise level. It is very noisy when the restaurant is full, possibly due to the flooring. Despite this we had a lovely lunch.

Fabulous location great service friendly staff and amazing food with a mix of flavours . My only comment would be it’s a bit noisy because of large open room it’s high ceilings and the ambience is a bit cold. Darker colours on the walls, paper clothes so kids can crayon and something to absorb sound may improve this .

Beautiful views to go with beautiful food albeit a little pricey at times. My main course of Barramundi was excellent and the chocolate fondant was to die for.
My husband's affogato was spectacular in presentation and my espresso was perfect.
An attentive but not intrusive waitress topped a perfect day. Thanks guys.

The food was delicious, however the restaurant being very full, it took 35 min between the end of our entrees (when the staff cleared our table) to the serving of our main meals.
When the restaurant is full, it becomes very noisy.
But the view is splendid, we will return on a different day.

Food was good but service was too long
I understand it could be busy
However We waited pretty much 1 hour and 15 minutes to get ours meals

We were here to visit Philip island for a day we don’t want to spend 3 hours to have lunch

So we didn’t get any dessert because we don’t want to spend an extra 30 minutes to wait

Food was good but because this experience we don’t think so we will come back

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the cape kitchen for my wife's birthday.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, they made a nice fuss over my wife for her birthday.

The food was excellent, and the views out to the cliffs and ocean were amazing.

We will definitely be visiting again.

Gorgeous views, very good service, iced coffees were amazing but when paying $28.50 for the big breakfast you would expect more than 1 piece of bacon

I have been here previously & it was great. But this time the heat was unbearable & there was no airflow around the tables near the windows closest to the beach. It was difficult to relax & enjoy the view with the heat. Would have been better if there were more fans to circulate the air or more air conditioners to cope with the large space on a 40 degree day.

Arguably the best restaurant with a view on Phillip island. Great service from the friendly wait staff and the food is delicious and generous. It is on the pricy side but worth it.
