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.

Although the staff were pleasant and friendly enough unfortunately our meal was less than satisfactory infact it was nothing but tasteless poor quality rubbish the chicken was well over cooked dry and tough the salad was old soggy and had terrible flavoured dressing and the...ceaser salad had soft soggy toast instead of croutons with a hard boiled egg that must have been a week old minimal dressising barely any Parmesan cheese and a couple of bacon bits so at $55- I will neva eat here again nor would I recommend anyone else to eat here neitherMore

I recently dined at this wonderful bistro with my family during the school holidays, and it proved to be the perfect casual spot for a dinner. we had the parma, steak, pot pie, kid meals and the Tex Mex parma, and I must say, everything...exceeded our expectations. The flavors were fantastic, and the portions were generous. We’ll definitely be returning.More

Dined here for dinner on a public holiday. No surcharge, yippee. Ordered a roast special, pork and beef, and a Korean grilled burger. Both were a very reasonable size serving, and tasted great.

Went to the RSL with a group of 12 because the options were really limited for a Monday night. Would not go here again. Two meals were inedible, chips were undercooked and soggy, many were not great and the service was terrible. They messed up...our booking, spoke rudely to many in the group and told one of us to hurry up and finish their meal. Very disappointed. Fish and chips would have been better.More

Although not where I would choose to go for a really good meal, the RSL provides decent food at decent prices, no surprises. Service is friendly.

First time at Healesville looking for a restaurant, as it was Wednesday night we thought we would try the RSL. What a great decision, we had an entree & 2 main meals. The food was incredibly delicious and extra large. The service was lovely. Highly...recommend Healesville RSL restaurant.More

Staff was fine and service was good. Food for the kids was good. Adult meals being steak and nachos were average at best. Really disappointing that the pokies area had aircon however the restaurant did not (there are grilles in the ceiling however so go...figure). When asking the staff to turn it on as it was 35 degrees they said they think it doesn’t work?!?!? If you have 37, 38 and 35 degree days consecutively, you need ac for the elderly, parents and kids. So if it’s hot, my advice is stay awayMore

Bizarrely the vegetables consisted of capsicum, red cabbage, wheels of corn (unsure how we were supposed to eat), zucchini and horse carrots. A very strange combo that just didn't work. The size of the chicken schnitzel was the smallest I have ever seen at a...restaurant and the porterhouse was also small and tough (ordered medium) the gravy i ordered never arrived even after I asked the waitress for it a second time. On the up side, the chips were nice.More

We live in Benalla and our elderly friends come from Warragul so Healesville is a good place to get together. The meeting was pleasant right from the start with young staff members greeting and welcoming us and arranging our seating and facilities. Orders were taken...at the table and meal presentation was quick and effortless with nothing being missed. My wife was particularly impressed with the "Cheesy Garlic Bread" and insists that I mention it specifically. Our senior guests were just as impressed as we were and we all enjoyed the selected meals and deserts, Only slight drawback was a small selection available but this may well have been the recovery phase from the previous Co-Vid restrictions. Payment was made on the way out after the meal and was very reasonable.More

Had a meal and drinks on the Australia Day weekend, have to admit the reason we ended up here was because of the huge crowds elsewhere else! We both had the small meals which were more than enough, I had fish and chips, lovely fish,...the salad was fresh and tasty, my partner had the lambs fry which he enjoyed. However the stand out was the amazing young man who was both waiter, cashier and everything else. He handled a very busy restaurant with amazing skill, in a polite and relaxed manner, he will go far.More

Friendly and relaxed, it's a nice place for an occasional meal but the food hasn't (over the last few years) risen much above average.
