It was so good we went back the next day. The food was as good as we had in WA / SA and the wine from the winery varies from good to exceptional especially the single site Grenache bottlings. We particularly liked the Belly Pork, the Lamb and the lobster with crab ravioli. The liquorice sponge, raspberry sorbet and lemonade... More

My husband and I had a lunch on a Monday and the place was packed. BOOK AHEAD! We did some wine tasting next door prior to our lunch booking. We both agreed that the food we had was spectacular and first class quality. The detail in presentation, the combination of flavors and great size portions are a combination that makes... More

We had the degustation with matching wines and it was very enjoyable. Service was fantastic, attentive, and friendly. The food was very enjoyable. The scallops and the lobster medallion with tortellini were our favourites.

Superb food and great wine. We had a bottle of Dead Arm which was fantastic and then had the lobster bisque ravioli - melts in your mouth , then followed by the Pork belly which had amazing flavours and some delicate crackling. Not cheap but well worth it.

Absolutely fantastic, the service, food, view, everything. The fillet steak was awesome and was my wife's lamb. The wine by the glass was quite a reasonable price. Even if you are not in the area, D'Arry's is worth the drive.

Went to pay at the end and the Resturant manager asked "how would you prefer to pay your tip, add it to your card or pay cash". I'm sorry but we are not in America you all earn decent wages, would have happily payed tips... More

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.
