The Cape Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
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 !
Four friends went for breakfast. The location is spectacular but we could not see much due to condensation on windows. The helpful waitress wiped the windows but they fogged up again quickly with water running down. My Pumpkin and cheese croquette was very disappointing, croquette very soft and tasted like just mashed pumpkin; 4 tiny pieces of soft fatty bacon that made me feel queezy, expect a full rasher of bacon, not less than quarter rasher, very small serve of salad, no toast, I was hungry after eating it. Two of my friends enjoyed Gippsland Field Mushrooms, rated it excellent and their serve was large, twice the size of my meal.
A great venue. Really beautiful views of the surf coast, no matter where you sit. The food is delicious and special. The service is friendly but could be more professional (on the day we went it was a little inconsistent).
For the price I think everything needs to be spot on. Regardless, I would go back and recommend it to friends.
Breakfast was fabulous. Took my 3 grown up kids to celebrate my daughters birthday. She loved it and we had a happy family time. we all enjoyed the food. It was friendly, the building and interior design aesthetically very pleasing, comfortable in a fabulous wild setting. I would definitely recommend it and go again
The Cape Kitchen is one of those "must do" dining experiences. Everyone should at least once in their life, have the opportunity to enjoy this 5 star dining experience with stunning ocean views. The perfect way to fully appreciate this restaurant would be over a long leisurely lunch seated directly by the window. All of the six dishes we ordered were delicious. The food showcasing local produce and simple but successful flavour combinations. The cheese souffle and chocolate fondant were both classic dishes modernised and done really well.
The Cape Kitchen, a unique dining experience!
My partner and I had driven past a few times. We had a free Saturday morning, so thought we would give it a go and booked ahead. While the décor is not stunning, the view is, and we were given a window seat. The surf rolling in and hitting the rocks below. Our table was probably 15 metres from the drop to the beach. The restaurant is large enough so that you don't feel penned in. The breakfast choices are wonderful. My meal was great. My partner advised the staff "this is the best breakfast I can recall ever having". So, "thank you for a wonderful start to our day" which included; a walk on the beach to the caves, followed by a shop in Cowes, and a leisurely drive home.
The restaurant has great views and the staff were very friendly. The dishes I ordered were very good although my wife thought that the pork belly was overcooked.
The only real downside was that it was a cold day outside and the heating needed to be turned up in the restaurant needed to be turned up as it was also cold
I've given service a Fair rating as our mains took more than 30 mins to arrive after our chacuterie share plate was cleared. And it also took a while to get the attention of wait staff to enquire on the mains. The response was swift after we enquired and we were served about 5 mins right after. But I thought it was unusual that our waitress had not proactively noticed the length of time between our starters and mains.
Brilliant across the board - food, service and views. Restaurant is right on the water so there is nothing but sea views to see. Food was fantastic - a shortish lunch menu but we shared the grilled prawns and then the pork belly. The service was friendly and attentive. We arrived 60 minutes late due to car problems but that was not a problem and I was presented with a glass of bubbly once seated (to celebrate my birthday). We will definitely be back when we return to Phillip Island - this is clearly the best restaurant in the area.
The view of the ocean was beautiful however the decor in the restaurant is lacking personality. Its very plan.
It took about 10min to get an order for drinks and this is only because i waived over to the waitress. It also took about 30-45min for our food to arrive.
$34 for gnocchi is a bit rich! We also had samon with squid ink pasta which was lovely, needed some bread to dip the sauce. I asked for a few slices bread which took about 10-15 min but then realised that this was the one off the menu wich came with 5 olives and sonlme olive oul and was charged i think $15. All i wanted was a couple of slices to dip in the sauce.
Overall I was a little disappointed
Attended as a couple for Sunday brreakfast/brunch, as returning customers. Great view from window side seating, allocated on a first in(or booked) basis. Both meals were delicious, filling and good value at around $20 each. Good coffee, too. We have not been for lunch, but my reading of the online menus indicated breakfast might be better value. We like it , and will return again.
Absolutely so glad we finally tried Cape kitchen. We attended for Sunday breakfast. Views were spectacular of the rugged coast (best views on the island for coastal eating) and the restaurant is very close to the water. Food was great with fresh local produce, and the staff were very friendly and helpful
