On our first visit to Ailrie in 2011, we noticed that there was a huge gap in the restaurant scene for decent restaurant food... Being from Melbourne, we just figured that we were use to the quality available to us at home and that maybe it just didn't exist in Queensland... We are spoiled with great food in Melbourne!
On our second trip in March 2013 we discovered Denman Cellars! We went there so many times that we ate everything off the menu!!! This cafe/ cellars would fit in perfectly in Melbourne... The food is impressive!
On our third trip in October 2013, we were so excited to see Danman Cellars was buzzing with people and live music, the cafe has really taken off in popularity and it is well deserved!
The menu is vast and the food delicious. The service is excellent, but sometimes they are very busy and you do need to be somewhat patient... I'd rather go to a busy restaurant though, because you know it must be good!
The range of beverages is impressive even if you arnt a beer drinker...and the fact that you can take drinks away is a bonus, particularly if you are staying at the Outrigger Boathouse, they also sell bags of ice which is convenient.
We are getting married in Airlie in April next year and we have recommended this restaurant to all 80 of our family and friends as a must visit!
