We had a Sunday catch-up lunch at the Elsternwick Club. I see that this was originally a gentlemen's social and bowling club, but these days I see it's described as a "family club" (ladies have been admitted since 1972, after all) and visitors are certainly welcomed (especially if they play the pokies). The building is quite impressive and we were enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. A contributing factor in this is that there weren't a lot of people around while we were there, and those that were, were mostly in the "senior citizen" category (.....but who are we to comment?).
Prices in the restaurant were reasonable and the meals, perhaps best described as "traditional", were satisfying.
