This is the premium resort and dining destination in the region.
Recently refurbished, it's even classier than ever.
Amazing food, presentation and service.
And Dru the GM is the supreme host.

“Special Occasion Dinners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

At the prices you wouldn't want to dine here every night, but for an exceptional experience in fine dining, you couldn't go past the Cape Lodge Restaurant. It seems most places in Margaret River have an inflated opinion of themselves, but this one does deliver on excellent service and not over-prepared food. We had the local fare on offer on the menu and were not disappointed. The wine however, was four times the price of the bottle shop, which I thought for a local wine was a bit over the top; but that's Margaret River for you. You would go once for the experience.

“Superb degustation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed a degustation with wine pairings which was suburb in every detail. The setting of the restaurant is lovely as it overlooks the lake, although I wondered why they didn't add lighting to the outdoor area at night. We were looking for different food experiences in the menu and surprises in the wine pairings and we were not disappointed. Our lovely sommelier was a young lady from Hamilton NZ, who had a lovely approach and offered great wines and insights. My husband initially resisted her offer of a sherry to match his chocolate dessert, but was surprised and delighted with the result. The open view kitchen appeared calm and in control, the service was discreet and the food faultless. Its an expensive experience but one you won't forget. Be aware when booking that you will be required to give a credit card for confirmation and there is a cancellations policy.

“Worth EVERY PENNY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Over the last two years my husband and I have been enjoying our anniversary dinner at Cape Lodge. A few weeks back we went down to Yallingup for my Mother In Laws birthday dinner and enjoyed the full menu with the wine pairings.
Every bite on that menu was magnificent. But my ultimate favourite item on the menu is their fresh bread with roasted garlic truffle butter - you will want to moisturise your body with it!

I've never had the same thing on the menu and the wait staff are magnificent too.
Not at all intrusive.

I look forward to coming back down.

Nice setting, great food, great service, and a special place for a special occasion. We enjoyed the food and ambience and especially the setting, overlooking the lake.
