“(Still) Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

It's always interesting to see whether a great restaurant can maintain high quality at a reasonable price over the long term. Four of us agreed that's the case at the Berry Farm. Our partners enjoyed the Roasted Vegetable Tart, while the menfolk had the Gourmet Mushroom Salad or the Beef and Red Wine Pie. (Is there a better pie in Margaret River? I doubt it!) The mains were followed by Boysenberry Pie with cream or a cappuccino. Generous serves and we washed it all down with a shiraz... the Smoking Gun. The bill was around a hundred dollars. Makes for a very pleasant Sunday afternoon, with the attendant blue wrens and honeyeaters taking great interest in our menu choices. As usual the ladies scored a couple of bags of fresh avocados to take home.

“Berry Farm Berry Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Acting on a friend's advice we journeyed through the attractive bushscape to the Berry Farm situated at Rosa Brook some kilometres south of Margaret River in West Australia. The basis of Cottage Cafe looks like an original group settlement farm dwelling with exterior walls constructed in part from rough hewn planks which creates a perfect ambience for the restaurant in the bush setting. Tables are available under the shady trees, on the verandahs or internally.
The menu at first glance seemed a little spartan however judged on the premise that the crowds go where the food is good, our party ordered a variety of dishes including pastry items such as vegetable tart, salmon tartlet and the beef and red wine pie as well as the a scotch fillet sandwich.
Everybody was delighted with the quality meals and the very generous portions which were complemented by (at the excellent asking prices ) with the most superb salads and dressings. The deserts looked also very tempting but we will have to sample them at another time perhaps when we don't have a main course.
The produce with various jams, pickles and berry wines available for tasting also added to the outing's enjoyment

“It only gets better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Each time we visit, we notice improvements to this venue. Food quality is high, best salads. Staff are friendly, service is good and it is a good place to unwind in the beautiful gardens with the wrens and small birds.

Firstly, may I say it is great to hear that you appreciate all the improvements made to the Berry Farm over the years. Much time, money and effort have been put into the Berry Farm to make it what it is today. The earthworks contractor has just finished the repair / renovation of the driveway following the heavy winter rains which is just fantastic!

With that said we are glad you enjoyed both the food and service and took time out to unwind with the birds that fill the gardens this time of the year.

Thanks again for the great review and we hope to see you again soon. Sorry for the delay in responding to your review however, I have just returned from my anual leave.

“Awesome garden salad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Loved the salad! I came here just nearing winter, and the weather was still nice enough for al-fresco dining. Very quaint, serene and the food was fantastic. Generous proportions of greens.
