A foodie girlfriend from Melbourne accompanied me on a chilly spring Sunday evening to Silvermere's restaurant. While lacking somewhat in ambience (placement perhaps of a central long table with a large floral arrangement/ bowl of fruit etc., to break the room of tables), what followed with the food offered was spectacular!
7 courses of perfectly balanced flavours, our picks being the baby beet root with Jannei goat's curd and a sublime confit pork belly, and finishing with the most delicious tongue tingling wattle seed pavlova with passionfruit ice cream. I can't wait to return!

Booked for my partner and I at Dimmi 24hrs in advance for dinner. The location was at a scenic mountain top lodge with a beautiful garden and veggie patch! The service was smooth, not rushed but not too long to wait in between courses and the degustation was amazing for its price and location! We both highly reccomend it for couples but also great for families and friends. The portions were perfectly sized leaving us both satisfied.

They provide seasonal food so the menu is never the same and always fresh. After experiencing the restaurant we would definitely consider lodging there one day.

7 course degustation for $65 per person

My wife and I had the seven course degustation menu for $65 per person, the only other choice on the menu was 5 course menu at $50.

The service was great, the food was above average, but not spectacular, and all the portions were very, very small. May have been worth it to get the accompanying wines, but we were somewhat tired and sleepy after a very long day.

The whole experience took almost three hours, just so you can plan accordingly.

The setting is a old estate house with a pleasant ambience. Service staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant serves a degustation menu only without allowing for choice. Overall we had an enjoyable evening with dishes that were perfectly palatable and well presented. However, we felt that dishes lacked in the level of flavour, style and surprise that an expensive degustation meal should offer.
