Overall this is nice place to visit, the wines are personal choice whether you like them or not so I won't comment on their wine other than to say the 2015 Shades Chardonnay was awesome even if you don't drink a Chardonnay. We had lunch in the cafe side as we didn't want a full service lunch ( going out... More

Have been here both to taste and dine in the past and was super disappointed when we took friends here and gave this winery great reviews only to be greated by a man who couldn't have been more disinterested and knew nothing about wine!! Will pass this one by on our wine trips in the future.

The Watershed is no secret, it came with a high reputation and delivered. While there are many wineries in the Margaret River region with restaurants, there are few that actually deliver. Watershed is the exception. Each meal was beautifully presented, thoughtfully flavoured and each element had a purpose. The ingredients were fresh, cooked to perfection. We arrived without a booking... More

We tried the cafe food - veggie linguine, fish and chips, salads and it was good. Ambience and furnishings were pretty simple and casual. Not much air con so it was quite warm. The space is one large hall that overlooks the vineyard and a pond. The back half is the cafe and the front half with the view is... More

Initially we went to Voyager but they were fully booked so they recommended the Watershed. Fortunately the Watershed was able take us with no reservation. The good and ambiance was quite nice. My favorite dish was the lamb. The market fish was nice but definitely not as tasty as the lamb dish.

We were advised that we had to arrive at 12 sharp for our booking as there was a wedding booked in the late afternoon. However two hours later we were only just receiving our food. The food, when it did arrive, was delicious. However I don't think we'll return as the long delay left a sour taste in everyone's mouth.

Napa charges for tastings. That is fine because they waive the "fee" if you buy a bottle or two. We have tasted in hunter, mornington, Italy, South Africa, Russian River, Sonoma, South Australia etc no tasting fees or they get waived upon purchase. Here not so much. Yes it is only 2 dollars but that is what I am saying... More

Thank you for your feedback. If you had listened to our Cellar Door assistant you would have been aware that Watershed also waives the tasting fee if you buy a bottle and/or you are dining in our Cafe or Restaurant. More
