My husband and I highly recommend dining at cape lodge as the sun sets with their exquisite view of forestry overlooking a magnificent lake. The food was beyond to die for with every mouthful making your taste buds dance with delicious delight! We enjoyed the 5 course degustation and believe it to be worth every dollar!!

We searched for the best restaurant in the River and this place kept popping up. The food, service and view across the lake did not disappoint and I cannot recommend highly enough.

This restaurant lived up to expectation. We searched for the 'best' restaurant in the Margaret River and this place kept popping up. Didn't disappoint, the food, service and view over the lake were all great. Couldn't recommend more

The degustation menu on our first night was in every way perfect. Each dish was original and beautifully presented and the matching wine well chosen. My husband particularly loved the sweetbreads and I loved every dish equally ! The normal menu (second night) was also pleasing and perfect in every way showing variety and flair in the preparation.

I have eaten some excellent restaurants over the years and Cape Lodge compares very favourably with the best of European fine dining. We sat down to a truly stunning meal (the veal and bisque were stand outs) that will not soon be forgotten. The service was faultless and I very much look forward to my next visit.
