8 of us shared a degustation and wine menu this afternoon at d'Arrys. Expecting to be over 0.05 by the time we finished lunch we booked chook from chooks little wine tours to pick us up from our motel and take us home again. Good decision. Lunch started with a sparkling Chardonnay, olives stuffed with local almonds with a lime... More

Recommended by an Aussie mate, D'Arry's didn't disappoint. We went for the full-blown Aussie experience - the degustation menu with wine flight. At least 8 courses of food, with 2 - yes 2 - wines accompanying each dish. Don't drive, and don't try to rush this culinary & oenophile experience. Stand-outs were the signature lobster bisque with exquisite tortellini, stuffed... More

The restaurant had a beautiful outlook and served good quality food. The decor and atmosphere was warm. However my wife and i enjoyed the meal, but we both thought that ekhidna offered a better menu and offered better value for money. Both restaurants are a must visit though!

This was my birthday lunch booked by my husband it has a nice view but the accoustics in here means when it is busy it is really noisy, the service wasnt that great either I found the staff to be a little curt and when I requested what meals were GF they had no clue and it meant many trips...

I've been 4-5 times here in the past 18 months and it's just so good. The degustation is expensive but it's worth it for the experience of such amazing 5 star food. The Lobster Bisque silenced the table as everyone closed their eyes and floated into the sensation of taste. Just unreal!

Booked a week in advanced. Staff organized, friendly, helpful and professional. Started with fresh bread and butter along with a bottle of white (rousanne) - followed with ordering a case after lunch. Entree was lobster for wife and squid with watermelon salad for me both devine. Then the main meal was a tasty duck curry for wife and lamb lollipops... More

We've eaten at D'Arry's in the past but it's been at least 5 years since the last time and we were extremely pleased to see the standard has not dropped, in fact our recent lunch was the best yet. Very good service, great wines and the food is most definately up there with the best in flavour, presentation, and portion... More

Booked for lunch before we left Scotland and our lunch lived up to expectations and more. Not white table cloth, more rustic and bistro which we wanted. Food, staff, wines just great and all very welcoming. Nearly came a cropper with Emirates and weight as we brought 10 great bottles back with us to drink now over the NY.
