Beautiful property and not bad wine

The inside of this place is like the inside of my fantasy home! The staff that looked after tastings were lovely and the wine wasn't my favourite but not the worst either! Highly recommend.

We had been advised by our power utility that we would be without power for all of a Saturday so we chose a fine restaurant to wait out the power out. Keep in mind it was winter, cold, raining and we wanted to keep warm and enjoy the day. We chose Cullen, mostly because James Halliday had just received the... More

Been here for couple times before. Fantastic vineyard view. Seems like they are upgrading their status from mid-range to fine dining. We had the marron as lunch special which is far over-priced ($38). We also disappointed with the shell is removed. Overall the portion of every dish is not large and we need to order a roasted potato as side.... More

Terrible service in the restaurant. Unfriendly wait staff and then a couple who came in after us, also waiting for a table for lunch, were seated before us. There is a way to deal with customers - these employees don't know it. It's unfortunate that a winery uses its James Halliday rating to inflate the price of its wines.

Dear Deidra M, We apologise if you did not enjoy your experience at Cullen Wines. We have spoken to our staff and they remember your visit. Unfortunately without a booking on a Saturday afternoon, it is difficult to have a table available immediately, and in the meantime you were offered a table by the fire. Two tables became available at... More

Visited Cullen's wines in the Margaret River. Food biodynamic and full off goodness. Promotes sustainability and had a lovely veggie patch outside to visit. Set in a lovely setting. Excellent honey. Well worth a visit. Just one drawback I asked for bread for the table and when I asked for some oil or butter to accompany bread was told the... More

Dear nkthomason, Thank you for visiting Cullen Wines. We are glad you enjoyed the biodynamic produce, a lot of which is from our own garden!

I would give this a miss in favour of other restaurant wineries in the area, food was uninspiring and relatively expensive, service was poor.

If ever you visit the Margaret River wine district make time for a long lunch at Cullen Wines. They produce their own organic vegetables and source the best produce in the land.

We stayed basically 5 minutes in this place. One particular staff member, a french guy, was so rude that we left without tasting anything. The restaurant looked beautiful, but I wouldn't eat there just because of this guy. If you cannot handle Custumer Service, find another profession.
