Surprising décor for an upmarket restaurant, looks more like a city bar. The food and service were fantastic. five course set menu beautifully presented and exceptionally good. Its not cheap, but great special occasion venue.

Great food, but really interesting matched wines, and particularly the matched cocktail options. The staff were fantastic, particularly the sommelier Suzie who has created a fantastic and unique drinks pairing. Definitely recommended!

Beautiful 5 course degustation lunch. The non-alcoholic pairing option is genius and gave my wife the opportunity to feel included. Service is excellent. Food was amazing. Will return for sure.

Jackalope Hotel's daring dining experience, Doot Doot Doot, offers contemporary, upscale dining. In the spirit of the on-site winery's single vineyard heritage, Doot Doot Doot's dishes are designed to offer a faithful expression of site, with a menu that draws on seasonal offerings from the hotel's kitchen garden and select Mornington Peninsula producers. Diners have the choice of ordering four dishes a la carte or opting for an eight-course set menu spread, all with the option of matched Willow Creek and international wines. Jackalope Hotels' Executive Chef, Guy Stanaway, adds, "the tasting menu offers a respect for the feast, contrasted by a disrespect for the familiar. Time-honoured techniques meet culinary curiosity, in dishes that are methodical yet explorative and designed to evoke a unique sense of place." Doot Doot Doot expands on the hotel's narrative, alchemy, and has been designed to reflect the alchemistic phase of fermentation. An eight-by-ten metre lighting installation by Melbourne-based chandelier designer, Jan Flook, sets the tone with a 10,000 lamp chandelier that creates the surreal sensation of fermenting wine bubbling above.
