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.

Ambiance was lovely. Food was good. Service was a bit slow. My main meal came out a lot later than the rest of the table and they forgot my partners drink order.

You just can’t get past that AMAZING view!! On top of that though the food is delicious and reasonable, the service is excellent and ambience is good. I highly recommend. We went for breakfast with my parents and our two children and were very well looked after and all loved it!

THe Cape Kitchen experience was great value and a lovely day watching over the ocean. It appears to be a great venue for large groups of people. While it was very quiet while we ate our lunch, it was really nice and the staff were lovely. Our food was full of tasty flavours to enjoy. I will certainly be a return guest. Thanks again Alan & Jan

The Cape Kitchen is AMAZING! The location and building are second to none. The service and ambiance could be worked on a bit. Some linen table cloths, fabric napkins and sound proofing could do wonders for the space. Overall, I would always recommend this restaurant to friends.

Thanks

Food lovely!
We were there for lunch on a pretty hot day but the airconditioning wasnt up to the challenge. Would have loved to stay longer and enjoyed a dessert if the resturant airconditioning was working better.

Excellent service, great food...we should not of taken on the cheese board. Food coma! Think the dessert - Eton mess could of had more 'mess' and sauce as it is very dry with the pav like shardes but they obliged with a little sauce on the side. Nothing too much trouble. We shall return...never disappointing and so great to see young staff, so great at their jobs and with work ethic. Shame its only open Fri-Sun as we sometimes miss out during week stays on the island. Do book in advance on the internet though, especially for a window seat but 'what a view'....just fabulous from start to finish. Thank you Cape Kitchen Team!

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.

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.
