After a confusing start with booking a table (make sure you call to book!) we were able to secure a table for an early dinner booking. The service by Kate was impeccable, warm and friendly. We had the 4 course tasting menu and the food...was delicious, fresh, interesting with and Italian influence. The space was modern and clean, with a Port Fairy cottage vibe and toilets were spotless. I would highly recommend having a meal at Conlan’s, it’s almost like visiting a friends home who is a fabulous cook and has a great wine cellar!More

We had a delicious dinner after researching the best place for dinner in Port Fairy. Freshly shucked oysters, prawn toast, eye fillet, pork belly and gnocchi with sides all cooked perfectly! Great panna cotta for dessert. We chose a wine bottle from the display and...were charged a small corkage. The wines by the glass were limited. We had an excellent meal and the service was great as well!More

We were lucky enough to have a booking for the hours before Victoria experienced another Covid lockdown. If we’d arrived a day later, we would have missed out on this fabulous food. There was so much wonderful choice amongst the entrees that we decided to...treat them as tapas and a range of them rather than worry about a main course. Every one of them was beautifully cooked, tasty and well presented. And the staff were warm and helpful as well. A perfect gift before we were cut off from pleasure for 5 days.More

We were in Port Fairy for 3 nights and inadvertently booked for the wrong night. Even though fully booked they were still able to cater for us. We had 3 courses and selected our wine from the wine room. The food was sensational, the wine...was on point and the service was outstanding. Highly recommended! The pork belly & the salmon where our choices!More

Dinner with friends last night, called during the day to book. All tables occupied and interior had a great feel. Pork belly was delicious, others loved everything they had. Menu for wine by the glass. For a bottle, you choose your own at takeaway price...and $15 is added. A bit weird when the staff don’t actually do anything. Not cheap, but would certainly go again. Highly recommended..More

It was a first visit to Port Fairy and worth the drive. Gluten free options are not immediately evident. Wine by the glass is limited. Wait staff were rushed, restaurant busy. Food was secondary to the wine experience.

The first thing we liked about this restaurant was it was bright open and clean! The wait staff were interested in serving us and clearlt explained the menu, specials etc as well as the interesting way to select the wine for the night. The entrees...were excellent - oysters freshly shucked! The lamb shoulder roast was beautifully cooked and we really enjoyed it. The only thing that was not to our liking was that there vegetables were not offered with the meat - a pet hate of mine. The potatoes were however great. Sweets and a desert wine topped off an excellent mealMore

The decor and atmosphere was excellent and expectations were high but the food fell short of what could and should have been delivered at this good restaurant that could be by far the best in Port Fairy. So too did the service in some ways...although the servers were pleasant they made no attempt to explain the dish . The Serano ham was a mess of small pieces or ripped up ham that was poorly presented. It could have been good and it should have been better.More
