We've eaten at many 5 star restaurants in Australia and in a number of other parts of the world - this restaurant ranks highly with all of them!! The food is SUPERB and the presentation is outstanding! The beverage list includes some marvellous wines. The little house is quaint and cute and, above all, authentic. The fires in the lovely...

I have dined at Lochiel House numerous times now and every single time I have a lovely dining experience. The food here is absolutely superb and it would match any 2 hat restaurant in Sydney hands down. This chef really knows his stuff. The menu is varied so there is something for everyone. The dishes are delicate to look at... More

The sardines entree was tasty and delicate, followed by the pork mains which was full of subtle flavours, My wife and daughter had the cured meat platter for entree, followed by the exquisite duck dish. And I loved the lemon meringue dessert for a contrasting finish. The plating with all dishes was an art to savour before tucking in! It... More

Dinner last night at Lochiel House - a nice ambience in the historic cottage and I particularly liked that dining tables are spaced throughout the several original rooms, so it is a little more cosy and private. Also appreciated the open log fire! We shared the charcuterie plate, which was very good. Duck and salmon for mains, both excellent and... More

We are 6 friends who dined in a memorable experience yesterday at Lochiel House. 2 of us drove almost 2 hours, 2 drove 1 hour. The perfect Sunday dining experience of excellent cuisine, table service, welcoming log fire, and kind staff accommodating us for a fashionably late lunch will see us return shortly! Thank you, Lochiel House!

Found this delightful gem on the Internet, so made the trek up for lunch on a Saturday. Great atmosphere, they made a lovely fuss for my mother's birthday. The ambience of the restaurant made it feel like you were dining in someone's home and that the other diner's were just other family members. The pumpkin soup was gorgeous and the... More

As newlyweds, thanks to a nice word from Teah of Trellises Guest House the staff at Lochiel House gave us the VIP treatment. Private dining area for two away from the other patrons, complimentary champagne and appetisers all topped off by warm and professional staff and delicious food. We will definitely be going back to this lovely restaurant.

My partner and I have been here once before and were so pleasantly surprised that we decided to bring his parents here for the 'book a chook' special today. We were absolutely delighted by the food, so clean, crisp and fresh. Excellent selection of wines, lovely dessert, attentive and smiley service. Highly recommend going!
