Ordered the pan-fried gnocchi but it was not at all what I expected. A square slab of what looked like a pasta bake in a round bowl arrived, it was tasteless, dry and found nothing appetizing about it. Husband made mention of the chips on his order of cheeseburger to the waitress as being "ordinary" and the reply he got was "they're gluten free". Service was pretty ordinary, staff hovering over the table after we had finished making us feel uncomfortable. Got the feeling we were on a strict time limit there. Perhaps inform guests of time limits so they are aware.
Will be a long while before we're back. Things need to improve tenfold.

Poor service staff did not engage - menu and food was below average. Second disappointing visit to the same venue. Homestead Brewery will not get a 3rd chance.

Had the best lunch here, where every meal was delicious. The garlic bread on GF bread was to die for. Had the fish on an eggplant sauce for mains - again it was so delicious. And finished it with a creme brulee. With a bottle of champagne and attentive service, it was such an enjoyable afternoon. Mandoon is my favourite place in the Swan Valley.

Came here for dinner in the evening with friends. Food and service was great. Selection of beers was amazing and, obviously, plenty of wine to be had.

The next day I visited the cellar door. The Canadian staff member was amazing and she told us everything we needed to know about the wines, region and why the Llawn was spelled with 2 Ls.

Great visit all round. Would recommend to anyone.

Went to Mandoon last Friday, and was exceptional, food was great and the staff attentive and polite. One thing that has been missing in these Covid / staff shortage times is good manners.
