We have been to the Foreshore a few times and have always enjoyed it. The last time we visited was 12 months ago. However there has been a change in the menu. It is very limited and not very explanatory. My husband chose the lamb. No where on the menu did it suggest it was spicy and had chilli through... More

We arrived as the kitchen was closing on Friday evening after a very long commute from Melbourne and the owners were happy for us to sit down and have dinner. The location is gorgeous, views across the water from a very well furnished restaurant. The food was very good, we both had a different type of lamb dish and it... More

Took some friends to the Foreshore Restaurant tonight. Saturday long weekend. The new owners and staff are doing a great job! Service was quick friendly and prompt. A smaller menu choice but still a good selection. Food was great and turned up promptly. We had the local fish chips and the Balinese style fish with Asian slaw. Both really great.... More

Went to The Foreshore today for lunch (01/03/2017). First time since the new owners took over. Only difference of note would be a new, compact lunch menu. A lot of the old boating decorations have been removed from the ceilings, walls and pillars giving a more open effect. The new owner was very pleasant as a hands on front of... More

Arrived for our stay in Rhyll after a long journey from Foster. The owner of the property where we are staying recommended the Foreshore Bar and Grill for dinner. I booked a table for 7:30pm and arrived at the restaurant at the agreed time only to find that our table wasn't ready. After a 5 minute wait we were shown... More

We had lunch here and were interested to hear that new owners had taken over two weeks ago. My wife ordered the thai squid salad and I had the lamb skewers with beetroot salad. The quality was great, however, five smallish pieces of calamari with a small salad of onion, grated carrot and rocket and four very small lamb meatballs... More

Had an early supper before our visit to the penguin parade. Fish and chips excellent - crispy batter, fish as fresh as could be. Great risotto from the specials menu. Nice buzzy atmosphere - mixture of regulars and tourists - and friendly staff.

We came for an early dinner with 4 adults and 4 kids. Menu was limited and not particularly inspiring. Meals came out haphazardly and there was probably 10 minutes between when the first and last person's dish arrived. Most of the adults' dishes turned up 5 minutes before the kids meals which wasn't ideal. A side salad didn't turn up... More

We visited The Foreshore at Rhyll when new owners took over after not being able to go for the past 3 years. Owners and staff very friendly and efficient, nothing too much trouble. The food was delicious from the entree of oysters kilpatrick, the main of porterhouse with mushroom sauce and veggies and meringues with lemon mascarpone. Everything great and... More
