“Best lunch for a long time”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I came to Lamonts in the Swan Valley based purely from the negative review from user Rosalie W - I wanted to see the Gordon Ramsey fellow she hated.

Turned out to be the most enjoyable afternoon at any Winery I have been to. The staff were friendly, the food was excellent, the wine was sensational and the Gordon Ramsey guy had me in stitches. If you want the same old boring wine tasting from an uneducated 16yr old to feed your wine-ego - do not go here. Thanks for recommendation Rosalie, I owe you.

“Magical”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Had a delicious, magical lunch here last Sunday. Blue skies, balmy weather and great food. Sat out under a tree in the garden area with baguette and pate, smoked salmon and tempura whiting with a bottle of the Family Reserve 2009 (we took a case home with us). Service was excellent. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

“Crazy set up!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Visited Lamonts while on a quick visit to Swan Valley in August 2012.

The place was busy, so I assume the food is good, but we didn't eat so can't comment on the food at all. What I can comment on is the cellar door set up and staff. The cellar door is also the service point for food and there were people climbing over one another to try and get served. When we finally got to have a sample we were made to feel like we were being an inconvenience to the staff, and even though the wine was good, there was no way we were going to make a purchase on that alone.

This cellar door needs a major overhaul and the staff some customer service training.

“terrific lunch”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Forget all the fancy places, or the most popular wineries, try this place instead.
It's just off the main road, and has a lovely atmosphere, casual feel, and excellent food and wine.
We sat outside under the trees, and shared our plates with a terrific Verdelho.
The wine was outstanding!
Well worth the trip.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Great location, fantastic food and friendly service. We had decided to have a drive through the Swan valley and take our chances in dropping into a restaurant. All were busy and two we did drop into we walked out of (one was like someones untidy backyard and looked dirty and the other we were seated and then ignored) Thankfully this happened as our final destination of Lamonts was outstanding. Tasting plates are just the right size and plenty of choice to satisfy even the fussiest of diners. Will be back with some of our friends.
