Lovely spot, weather was fine so we sat on verandah by the garden and lake. We had a stunning platter and some of their own rose and it made for a lovely spring lunch. Definitely recommend it.

I’d read about the Lake House in the tourist brochures, so decided to have lunch here whilst I was visiting the area. The ‘road’ to get here wasn’t what I expected - unsealed and full of potholes. The service however was great, along with views...over the lake at lunchtime. Limited menu range, I had the chicken salad and it was huge! And delicious. Well worth checking out.More

good service, good wine, but the platters were a complete rip off. It was a busy Sunday, obviously short staffed and short on food stocks. They had obviously nipped down to the local IGA to replenish stock but it was sadly lacking quality. We've been...twice before (we live locally and it was very good), this time with a group of friends, we rang ahead and to make sure they weren't too busy, a response of 'yes we can fit you in , no problem'. So disappointing, i feel conned!More

You simply can’t go wrong booking in for a visit here. The platters are generous in portion sizes and the quality of the produce and food was excellent. Accompanied by a stunning lake and garden to sit amongst while you graze. I already can’t wait...to go back.More

Hi Darren, thank you so much for visiting us and for your review. It is always wonderful to hear that everything was enjoyed.

A great scenic location with lovely share platters. My type of dining for sure but.... to charge $8 more for a bottle or wine in the restaurant when I’m dining at your vineyard and for the waiter to dump it on the table and not...even pour a glass was not what I expected.More
