My family are serious foodies and have always been disappointed at the quality of restaurants in Phillip Island. It was great to come across Rusty Water!! The service was fantastic. The beer and cider selection was great. They had my favourite, Seppelts Sparkling Shiraz, by bottle or glass – a very rare treat on any wine list! The menu was fantastic – it was very hard to choose. We has the eye fillet – a 250g piece chargrilled with mash and a great red wine jus. It was cooked to perfection and he Gippsland beef as good as you will get anywhere in Melbourne. The chicken was phenomenal! I rarely order chicken our but the mushroom sauce and stuffing tempted me. It was magnificent. My wife had the bouillabaisse. It was also fantastic – with very fresh seafood, generous portions and a nice flavor. It wasn’t the truly authentic one but their version was great. We are definitely going back one if not twice before we leave! Finally, the service was great. Very friendly, attentive and accommodating. We highly recommend Rusty Water. Don’t be deterred by the motel next door. This restaurant is high quality and well worth he meal. Best we have ever had on Phillip Island!
