Our experience at Sittella really exceeded our expectations. Our host was Anna and she was a truly wonderful host who made sure we were well looked after. Wines were beautiful, atmosphere was relaxing and food in the restaurant was divine! We’ll be back.

I chose Sittella for my birthday lunch because we had never been to a winery before and the menu included a great children’s menu for the 12 year old. We were initially shown to a table out on the veranda, the blinds were down so...it wasn’t so exposed to the weather, heaters were on, but it was cold. We opted to move inside, however it was chilly. Service was prompt. Our starters came. Seafood chowder, broccoli soup and pork belly with scallops. The chowder was more like a vegetable soup and did not contain enough seafood to be called a chowder. The broccoli soup was good. Neither of the soups came with bread. The pork belly was not crispy enough and came with one tiny scallop. Things improved when our main courses arrived. A rack of lamb, beef tenderloin and steak with mash for the child. All were cooked perfectly. Desert was banana brûlée and chocolate pudding. We enjoyed those. On reflection the starters did not match the price but the mains and deserts were good. I know winter is a short period in WA but when patrons are paying decent amounts for foods they don’t want to be cold or eating with their coats on. We would come back in the summer.More

We booked in for lunch as part of a Swan Valley weekend, glad we booked because the restaurant was full. We were two couples and all had the set menu. There was no vegetarian choice for the starter but they offered pumpkin soup which was...nice. All the menu options that we had were delicious and the glass of Sittella Silk (white blend) wine I had with lunch was very nice. We sat on the deck overlooking the vineyards and the weather was perfect so a lovely lunch overall.More

We came for a lunch having previously had a tasting at the cellar door of Sittella's very good wines. Sat in the restaurant, over looking the vines, you can tell you are in WA's oldest wine region. The food was very good, even if the...lamb did not come as the described "medium rare". More in the medium side. And still tasty. The fish was good, and a little on the dry side. As you would expect the wines were excellent.More

In March I booked a 70th birthday party for my husband at Sittella for lunch in early July. At the time, they told me they were having a wedding promotion day on the same day, but that it would not interfere with our celebration. A...couple of months later, they called to tell me they were canceling us because they want to make the day exclusive to the wedding day. Obviously, they think there is more money to be had pandering to young brides than to seniors. Rating: ZERO.More

I'd booked a lunch for 4 people at the winery to celebrate a friends 70th birthday and had booked well in advance and advised of the occasion. The table was so small with so much glassware and crockery on it it was difficult to accommodate...all the dishes during lunch and our drinks. We'd ordered off the set menu and were told the steak would come out medium\rare, which we said was fine as that is how we liked them. When they arrived, they were medium\well. When we mentioned how they were supposed to be cooked there was very little follow up. Disappointing. When I looked around at the tables for small parties - especially for 2, the tables were round and quite small when you thought what they might need to accommodate over a lunch. The winery seems to focus on large bookings so I would think again before thinking of going again with a smaller party.More

We dined on a Friday and chose the set menu. Seated on the verandah the view across vineyard was stunning. One of us chose the fish option - snapper was a generous serve & delightful, the other chose the vegetarian option and gnocchi was tasty...but quite a small serve, more like an entree than a main. Our only whinge was that it took an hour and a half after the bread and dips for the mains to arrive; if not for the delicious wine - Sitella tinta rouge, and the beautiful scene we would have been rather less patient.More

What a lovely winery and restaurant. We had lunch at the restaurant yesterday and it was really good. Restaurant situated above the vines and a lovely outlook. We had the set menu. Turkish bread with olive oil and balsamic and salmon dip to start and...there were 4 mains and 2 desserts to choose from. Brilliant value at under $50. The wine tasting is free and wines are definitely not overpriced and very good. We will definitely come back next time when we are in the Swan Valley.More
