We visited Varsity Lakes a couple of times during our holiday and have been here on previous holidays. The quality and quantity of the food is great and the restaurant is positioned nicely overlooking the lake, a very pleasant place with lovely attentive staff.

Very happy to recommend this restaurant for breakfast and lunch. The new owners really friendly and our waitress was very helpful. Try the Quinoa salad or a delicious veggie burger.

We popped in here for a couple of drinks but only ended up having one. No real atmosphere in this place and service was slow. The beer was borderline flat and rubbish - this place clearly isn't a brewhouse.

Have been going here every few months for awhile. The beer is great but the food isn't as good as it used to be. Both wings and chips have changed substantially. Nice spot looking over the lake but I wouldn't go here for anything but...More
