We were staying at the RACV at Inverloch for a couple of nights mid-week and decided to have lunch at Tomo's on the way there. What a great place. The exterior is not particularly attractive and the interior is pretty quirky but, who cares, the...food was wonderful. A very comprehensive menu had us reeling from the choices but we eventually settled on the grilled eel (the best I've ever had and a sizeable serving), the blue swimmer crab in tempura, the grilled duck with mushrooms and cabbage and the lamb chops with wasabi mash and vegetables. Two bottles of Kirin, some warm sake and a bottle of Torbreck shiraz also went down very well. Service throughout was friendly and efficient despite the place being busy - particularly with a significant number of people dropping in for their takeaway lunch.More

We had dinner with friends (who are regular holiday goers i Inverloch) at Tomo. Being a group of four, we were able to order a wide selection from the menu. The highlight was probably the sushi and sashimi. But, all the dishes were excellent. This...should be your first port of call if you are eating out in InverlochMore

Great Japanese food and friendly service. One of the few places open mid-week in inverloch, so make sure you book. Miso duck & yuzu lamb recommended.

It's a shame, because the food was nice, but it was overpriced, Japanese is my favourite and we dine at Japanese restaurants a lot and were a little surprised at the sizes for the cost. However I'm happy to pay for quality but the service...didn't match it, I felt bad the poor girl serving us was lovely but clearly hadn't been trained properly, we had to ask for soy sauce for our sushi, but she was busy as the place is clearly understaffed and when you're paying the prices that we paid you'd expect more. Only the night before we dined at bayside ladynext door and their wait staff I praised as they thought of things before I even thought of it and clearly knew what they were doing. It's a real shame as it has so much potential. We left feeling disappointedMore

We had dinner here this week. Its very popular and the food is very good. Every table was full in a small space, probably not a good idea at the moment with Covid. It was also noisy. Maybe too many booked at 6 and 6.30....Everyone seemed to arrive at once. Our bill was very expensive for 4 people (over $300) and we had 1 diet coke, 2 beers and between us, 4 glasses of wine. I thought the one crepe bought for dessert was pretty simple for the cost. ($16 I think) Based on that I wouldnt rush to return there.More

Really delicious, fresh Japanese food at this little restaurant. Good attentive service. Fresh sashimi, perfect fresh oysters, and great duck. What more to wish for on a rainy, summer night. Thank you Tomo.

Delicious food served quickly despite busy tourist time - the eggplant was the best thing ever! So surprised to get a seat at short notice and we were not disappointed. We will be back! Thank you☺️

Surprised to find such good Japanese food in Inverloch. Service was good as well. As it was a special occasion - my friends' birthday we decided to go somewhere special and glad that we chose Tomo. Pretty high standard Japanese food as one of my...friend goes to Japan quite frequently and just loved the food offered in Tomo.More
