We were staying at Cape Lodge and had a voucher for Dinner! We loved the evening, right from our champagne beside the open fire (a Rainey and cold evening). The food and service was special. We also tried their local wines and those of the area. Everyone was attentive and professional. Would definitely recommended to others to try!

The waitress was clicking her pen while taking our order. Enough said. But here's more.... Food was great. Quail taster was delicious as was the Bahen chocolate dessert-smooth and crunchy and salty and sweet. Yum!!! But, I mean, how can anything go wrong when there is Bahen chocolate? I hate moroon....and there was dated, tasteless moroon decor. Eww. Lights around... More

We treated ourselves to dinner at Cape Lodge during a short visit to Margaret River. If you aren't staying at the lodge, you really do need navigation or knlowledge of how to get there as the roads are typically very dark and there is poor signage. Once inside the dining room is delightful with a large open fire. The menu... More

Really this is 3.5 stars but in light of the other wonderful meals we had in the Margaret River I could not score it up. What can I say? The courses were quite patchy. We had one stand out course in a degustation, which was a chicken parfait. The rest I could not tell you about. Similar to other reviews,... More

What an amazing experience. Impeccable service, sublime food. Be prepared to be treated like you are someone special. Complimentary dishes from the chef seem to keep coming and little treats to take home afterwards was a lovely touch. What a refreshing experience to have a chance to really dress up and have our taste buds treated..... For special occasions this... More

Had dinner here with my Wife. After all the hype I've seen and heard about Cape Lodge Restaurant I was expecting the best fine dining experience. Although the staff are attentive, efficient and friendly, I found the whole experience underwhelming for the price. There are so many fine dining, reputable restaurants around these days, so standing out from the crowd... More

My husband and I had the four course set price - but fabulous range of choices and asked their lovely sommelier to make matching wine selections for us. We were very happy to be given some slightly unusual wines which took us beyond the main Margaret River names. Not only were the dishes (highly recommend the seafood soup and venison... More
