EAT & DRINK
Despite its size, Rhyll has managed to attract some of the best eateries on Phillip Island and we have no hesitation in recommending them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The Wild Food Farm Cafe a few steps from our front gate has a delightful homestead style cafe serving lunch plus an excellent selection of quality coffee, tea and fresh house baked cakes and pastries from mid morning. Their Australian wattle seed scones are a treat, rivalled only by the bush curry pies and pepperberry quiche baked to perfection. Pick a table on the verandah and listen to the chorus of kookaburras, cockatoos and magpies.
Tides Fish and Chips next door to The Foreshore Tavern is an island legend. Be quick because this place opens only Thursday through Sunday and closes around 8.00pm, even earlier around 4.00pm on Sunday. Glenda, Sally and the team out back have their work-fishing life finely balanced. They have a great range of local seafood, served with fabulous salads. You can take a table or takeaway to eat on the beach and as a bonus, they're licenced to serve wine and beer by the glass or by the bottle. Enjoy a glass of red by the fire in the Barrel Room when the weather turns colder.
The Foreshore Tavern is a relaxed, convivial space with a soaring ceiling, beer on tap, local wines and a diverse menu. Watch the moon rise over Western Port Bay from your balcony table. It's a popular place, so call Roy or Anita to book ahead in the high season, on long weekends and during special events. A crackling log fire in Winter offers inducement to linger.
My Seaside Cafe on the corner at the beach, serves breakfast and lunch, a glass of wine, plus great coffee, cake and snacks Thursday through Monday. Your host Wing is waiting to greet you.
Purple Hen Winery 5 minutes away off the Rhyll-Newhaven Road serves delicious tasting platters to compliment their cellar selection. If the weather is kind, find a table in the garden overlooking the bay.
