Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed at the Ashwood Motel which provides free membership for the RSL to receive discounts on food and drinks. The club is quite large and looks to be extending. We enjoyed our dinner at Luminous, the Linguini Boscaiola was delicious and creamy, a large...serve that could serve two. The chicken parmigiana spot on. After dinner we had a fantastic coffee and hot chocolate accompanied with some delightful choc mud cake and one of the best caramel slices I've had. Will definitely visit again.More

Purchased a grilled cheese, tomato and ham sandwich today, the worst grilled sandwich ever, the bread was a crust and tasted like cardboard, cost was $6,60 (discount) cafe needs to lift their game, from the woman who takes your order to food served.

The club was walking distance from Motel, ordered take away green curry chicken and rice, the curry dish would have to be one of the best curry's i have ever tasted. Would highly recommend this dish.

Congratulations to the management and wonderful team at Gosford RSL. On a recent roadtrip we found this gem and had a wonderful time. The food options were plentiful. The meals were very tasty. BTW there are $5 beers all day. Plenty of staff working and...clean amenities. It's not just a brasserie by any stretch of the imagination.More

Bar manager refused to serve a lemon lime bitters as the drink for the kid’s meal despite having had it on many occasions in the past and despite it being allowed under RSA policy. I can understand a bit of ignorance on his part but...it was the smug attitude which was offensive. He refused to back down even after I showed him an email which I had received from his own boss stating that it is ok. I used to visit the club frequently but they have lost my business nowMore

It was the worst meal We ever had on the central coast. RSL club should immediately shut them down. The meals we had were not even Chinese based. Sweet and sour pork had no sweet and sour sauce. Unbelievable.the noodles were flavourless with no sauce....Omg disgusting…..no words to describe. And expensive $40.00 for 2 dishes.More

On the road from Qld & staying on-site at the Galaxy Motel. All the staff were friendly & professional. Twas a Tuesday & my wife had the rump steak that is only $15 on that night. The steak was quite good. It came with chips...only so she added a small salad which was also good quality. I had the spicy chicken wings which were a little overcooked and a little bland, even with the hot sauce.More

Went there because we were staying at one of their nearby motels. What a poor choice! We thought it would be fun because the ham raffles were on. Ordered dinner from what could be described as an average menu. Ordered the Pad Thai and Fettuccini....The Pad Thai was so heavily spiced with chilli it was inedible. I have been to Thailand 7 times and this was not Pad Thai or any resemblance. The fettuccini tasted like it had been in a pot for days. It was greasy and totally inedible. They did refund after this was pointed out, but the staff member was dismissive and did not like the fact we were upset with the dinner. Ended up not eating anything as we were not offered any sort of replacement. Nice club, but with this food I am surprised it is patronised well.More

Found the restaurant very clean and the staff helpful. It was quiet when we were there. The food was very nice but a simple menu. Did not wait long after we ordered.

We decided to eat here as we were staying in the motel next door. It was nice to enter into the air con from the heat outside, but the smell of smoke was overwhelming. We found the menu covered all bases and ordering was easy....It feels well priced for this type of venue. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful as far as serving size and for the most part pretty average as far as taste. The kids area was so disgusting so we avoided that after initially hoping to use it.More

WE had two meals here, dinner one night and a breakfast following morning. The evening meal was good, but I felt the lamb chops were expensive for what I got, the others had the dory, which was very nice. Breakfast was good, a reasonable range...on the menu, we both had the avocado on toast (ran out of sourdough), very good, but a tad expensive for the serving. We enjoyed.More

Four of us visited for dinner. King prawn pasta with cherry tomatoes, garlic, chilli and olive oil sounded enticing, alas when it arrived it was a glutinous ,thick tomato sauce based dish with a few tomatoes and even fewer prawns, heavy ,thick pasta . When...I queried why so few and so tiny prawns was told they didn’t use king prawns anymore but hadn’t changed menu or board, no sorry, couldn’t care less. Husbands T bone inferior quality and lacking in flavour, chewy, chips nice. Guests chicken burger came in a deep fried batter,it looked like a huge spring roll on a bun, not succulent, dry and overcooked. The only good meal was the salmon with broccoli And new potatoes which was moist and well cooked. We won’t be back, too many other eateries around who do similar fare so much better. Come on West Gosford RSL, you’ve had a refurb, now quite nice to sit in but the chefs? cooks need a rocket, the manager needs a good talking too and the suppliers need managing to ensure better produce. Extremely disappointed.More

Have been there a few times and meals have been average - however today my vegetarian hamburger was not good. Bun not toasted and onion rings stuck on patty. No taste with cheese and lettuce only. My stomach didnt feel good afterwards Paid $16:00 for...something that would be more delicious at McDonalds, There was no thought in the way the hamburger was prepared - ? frozen patty? - I think this should come off the menu - please review A hamburger should have lettuce tomato beetroot and other, not fried onion rings stuck in there -should be a side dish . Really I could of done better myself. Food deteriorating - not going backMore
