The Bar and Restaurants

The RCYC offers the Galley Restaurant and Terrace dining area which both serve delightful local cuisine, with a constantly changing menu, at very affordable prices with discounted prices to members.

The wine list offers a good selection, from house wine to boutique wines.

The Ala Carte restaurant is divided in three areas, the Terrace, Galley and Deck. The same menu is served through out these areas with the only difference being the setting. The “Galley” is a offers a private dining area, an area tucked away from the hustle of the club while the Terrace and Deck has a more relaxed atmosphere.

The restaurant trades seven days a week opening at 08h00 in the morning and closing at 22h00 in the evening (except Sundays and Mondays where the kitchen trades until 18h00).

The menu is well balanced and caters for a wide variety of choices. Our resident Chef also provides daily specials as well evening specials every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings. The Club also offers a Sunday roast that has been very well received by our guests.

The yacht club has two main bars, the traditional “Men’s” bar and the “Ladies” bar. The Men’s Bar provides the club with memories of years gone bye set with its collection of  plaques, memorabilia and photos of famous boats from yester years. The Ladies Bar is situated in the water side of the club and overlooks the marina for that soft and tranquil setting. The club has a great selection of wines available for all pallets. The bar trades till 11 pm and has a reputation to stretching time when the club gets in full swing.
