“Unfriendly staff but nice setting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Delicious lunch in the garden of the winery. Food was great although took almost an hour to arrive. After lunch having spent $250 we bought some of their honey which my son promptly dropped. I know it was our fault but would have thought that I would have been offered a replacement since had bought lunch and wine. What I didn't expect was the guy who came to clear up the mess, to be rude about the accident.

“Great organic food with outdoor dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We loved loved loved our lunch at Cullens. After tasting their fabulous wines and choosing a bottle we wanted to have with our lunch (you can buy a bottle and take home what you don't drink), we settled ourselves on an outdoor table. Our 15 month old was able to run around and was entertained by the charming waitress and we had a stress-free and delicious organic lunch. I can't recommend this place enough!

“Our absolute favorite in MR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We have eaten many times at Cullen when in Margaret River. Apart from the sensational world class wines, we have never had a bad meal here. The duck is exceptional and the service always friendly. Great surroundings and we recommend the winery tour!

“Quality food in a relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

While the decor is casual, it is clean and comfortable with a lovely outlook. Our entrees, mains and desserts were first class and served by smiling friendly staff. While the meals were relatively expensive, the quality justified the price. We chose the recommended glass of wine to go with each course. The wines were outstanding. The two course menu at $50 per head is good value. Allow about $100/per person for a great lunch and wines.

“Hit and Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Experienced a hit and miss Sunday afternoon lunch here during the recent long weekend.

The surroundings are unusual. Inside is a little dark and dowdy while outside on the deck is quite lovely. Would recommend you ask for an outside table if you can stand a bit of sunshine and heat.

As for the food, our entrees of Goat Cheese Souffle and Sustainable Fish Plate were delicious dishes. Unfortunately, the main wasn't as appetising. The red wine jus accompanying the lamb rump was like dishwater and the meat was very fatty.

The service was friendly but not really professional.

I can't say that I enjoyed any of the wines at the cellar door, but that really is a personal taste.

Overall, the lunch didn't feel as luxurious as you would expect for the price and the reputation of the establishment.
