The Kitchen Tootgarook
Coffee is great and an excellent breakfast menu to cater for all tastes.
The staff were very friendly and efficient, the food was very tasty and well cooked, the wine was good and the desserts amazing. Overall a great night out.
Lovely food & great service. We sat towards the back, past the fire. It was nice and quiet there. A good night, thankyou.
Our dinner at The Kitchen was excellent as per usual, great food and friendly service from all the staff. Well return very soon. Cheers, Garry
Great atmosphere, great food choice, lovely service.
All 4 main dishes were over cooked and dry. Worst $350 ever spent.
Great Food & well presented. The service could have been better, as we waited too long for drinks on both occasions.
Food was great however-
annoyingly I was contacted the evening before the booking to provide a deposit over the phone. I did book 5 days prior and believe this is not respectful as I had limited option to find a new reservation elsewhere.
annoyingly I was contacted a couple of hours after our booking to request a further payment as they forgot to add a round of coffees (4). This was after spending $300+
Pretty unprofessional- lucky the food was good.
Great food and very obliging staff. Website needs adjusting, we were not the first to be confused with which kitchen we had made our reservation.
Delicious food, excellent coffee, and lovely staff!
Great food and excellent service. Very impressed and will be back. Love the Thursday night locals night!
Perfect place to pop in for a delicious brunch with friends. The coffee and meals were both absolutely scrumptious! Highly recommended. Small cafe in size, so book ahead if you're going in a large group.
Staff was super nice, but a loud table of 20 next to us had kids running around and occupied the staff full time. The airconditioner was blowing cold air directly on us. We were dressed lightly since it had been a hot day. The food was good. Nothing too special.
Lovely night out at a fantastic local restaurant! Our meals were delicious, the service was fantastic.
Celebrated father in laws birthday. All family members were well catered for from 7 to 84 years. Relaxed atmosphere with tentative staff. Not a huge menu selection however good produce.
Lovely food and lovely staff great space would highly recommend!
This was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment I walked in I felt relaxed and the hosts looked after us very well. The ambience of The Kitchen was cosy and the food was delicious. Will definitely return when in town again.
The staff were very friendly and we all enjoyed the banter .
Food and choice of wine was excellent . I Never get tired of eating here as the menu changes with the seasons . Always fresh , local and interesting.
And very reasonably priced
Highly recommend, food was amazing as was the service we received.
Found the service and food very good would recommend your restaurant to friends,BUT the noise level
has put us off it was very noisy and we found we were yelling louder just to be heard.
DO NOT ORDER The warm Halumi avocado salad, a disaster combination, disgustingly sweet overpowered with honey and spinach saturated in oil, soo greazy. The holumi strip cut extreamly thin therefore arrived hard, very dried out and cold, (i had to ask the waiter for a wedge of lemon to squeeze on the halumi). As for the avocado...where was it?? When the head waiter asked us how were the meals. I was honest and told him the above. He said "oh your paying for your meal 😱 (a very unprofessional reply, we were shocked). The waiter continued further saying "but yeh, um, i'll check with the cook as the salad should of been dressed with mustard seeds, honey, lemon". The head waiter never came back to our table, instead he thought it was more important to go out for a cigarette. I know this because our table was seated infront of the window with prime position view of the alley where he was smoking. Very dissapointed with the meals and service. We drove 45min to this restarant on the mornington peninsula. We booked ahead made reservation only to be highly put off. A waste of our good money, fuel and our time. The only good thing is the restarant has a lovely mural street appeal.
We loved our dining experience so much we returned the following night.
Beautifully prepared and presented, great flavours
Excellent service. Great food. Will definitely be returning soon.
Lovely food great service just a little expensive for us on the entrees I’m afraid but we did enjoy waitress was awesome
We were looking for a good cup of coffee, some fresh, tasty food and a pleasant environment. We got all of that and more! Great service and real cloth serviettes! The coffee alone is worth a return visit. We will be back, although a bit earlier in the day to try its brekkie menu, which finishes at 11:30 daily.
Loved the ambience of the place and food was good and good service
Once again we had a wonderful meal at The Kitchen. All the meals were delicious, the service fabulous and wine perfect.
Delicious menu & lovely accomodating staff!
The Kitchen was a perfect Sunday morning breakfast for my girls weekend away!
Food was delicious and full of taste and textures. Wonderful evening!
Food and service was fantastic, my only complaint was it was very dimmed, would have preferred more light. but other than that a great place to go for dinner
A cosy little place with delicious food and great service. Loved it! Will definitely recommend and will be back!
The woman who owns the restaurant was very abrupt and rude, didn’t receive any friendly service. The food was average at best - my friend had raw egg in he meal, I had an over cooked poached egg and burnt sourdough. Very, very disappointed with the service and food, would not recommend.
Cannot believe I have lived in Rye and Rosebud so long and find this gem of a restaurant last Friday after a friend told me I must go....
We will be regulars from now on.
Local gem. Offering delicious food and wine in a cosy dining space. We'll be back.
Amazing food and very friendly and helpful staff. Recommend the Foragers Delight for entree and the steak for dinner, the sauce is also to due for. Beautiful ambiance and decor. Definately go back to sample other menu items.
Enjoyed a beautiful Saturday night dinner out with our group of six. Everyone very impressed with the lovely ambience, helpful staff and super delicious food. Will definitely be back and highly recommend!
We had a wonderful Queens Birthday high tea at The Kitchen .
The food and service was , as usual , extremely high quality .
We took our 2 kids here when staying in rye and the food was excellent. They were looked after and the meals for my wife and I were excellent. Would go back
Fantastic coffee, close to the beach, friendly staff & delicious food!
