We visited D'Arry's as a large group (17 of us I think...) and were asked to pre-order to make things manageable. Great idea....everything went as clockwork, and the food was fabulous. Beautiful warm bread with fresh butter rolled in rock salt was delectable, and everyone's meals and desserts got rave reviews. And I just HAVE to highlight the magnificent sparkling... More

The lobster bisque was incredible. The passion fruit soufflé left me incapable of speech. The staff were friendly, accommodating and assisted with dietary advice. the best restaurant food I have had.

It doesn't get better than this. Don't wait for a special occasion, just go! We drove down for a special anniversary weekend and had the degustation lunch, mine with paired wines, my husband's with juices. Everything was just right, from the personalized menu, the intimate atmosphere, the superb views of the vines and valleys, the knowledgeable and attentive service. And... More

Starting off with the long list of pre lunch (birthday) tastings was a must. Matt really looked after us. The staff are amazing, most welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was devine too. Was a wonderful experience all round. We will be back to do the degustation soon!

Can't praise this restaurant enough, food was up there with some of the best hat venues but with an affordable price tag. Staff were impeccable, service perfect but you need to made an advance booking due to its popularity. The grounds are very relaxing and tranquil, don't forget to get a photo at the unique hand sculptures on the driveway

We had a lovely family lunch here on a Sunday - we were lucky to have a 1pm booking so weren't rushed. Note, there is a minimum 2 course menu per person but they are happy for couples to share and organise extra plates etc. We had a table of 6 and everyone's meals were amazing. Staff are friendly and... More

After some wine tasting at this fine establishment, this was also the perfect setting for lunch. Quick service, with attention to detail. Amazing food and flavours. Will definitely come back for the wine, the food, the friendly staff, and the ambience.
