Welcome to our Bistro FRONT + CENTRE


Our ever-smiling team work tirelessly to cater for any individual needs through a foundation of attentive and supportive care and all at the RSL are focused on creating an exceptional experience for you and your friends. Today you can enjoy a range of versatile meals that provoke thought and confront the expectations in a restaurant of this type. All dietary requirements can be catered for and the range of options that we offer includes a large array of contemporary and classic bistro fare, however it also extends beyond the typical and into the complex world of culinary gastronomy. So that you can enjoy all this we have designed our open and sizeable space to capture every scrap of natural light in a bid to enhance the lunchtime ambience in a hall that can sit up to 160.

As part of our flexible arrangement we can also mould the venue layout to suit specific events and large groups to ensure that your time spent with us is enjoyable. We accept reservations. Actually we encourage it due to the demand often facilitated during weekends and other busy periods. Families are welcome to utilise the available childrens playground for the opportunity to enjoy an extra drink before life gets underway again.

Bentleigh RSL along with Cheltenham RSL are Australia’s first RSL venues in Australia to be accredited and join the Coeliac Australia accreditation program!

FRONT + CENTRE at Bentleigh RSL has a separate kids menu and gluten free menu which include vegan and vegetarian options. You'll love the baked rainbow trout or fresh seafood pasta, but we're thinking the gluten free burgers with chips will be a hot favourite! Open for lunch 7 days 11.30am - 2pm and dinner Tuesday - Sunday 5.30pm - 8pm.

All RSL Members* receive a 10% discount on meals.
