My partner and I stayed two nights at the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld and dined there twice. Once in the Bistro section and once in the Restaurant section. We also had breakfast there as well as lunch in their bar (separate kitchen and menu).
We must say that we very impressed with the Bistro and the Restaurant (not to mention breakfast). To begin with all their bread is baked on the premises. The butter is freshly churned butter, their attention to the freshness of ingredients is worthy of the very best restaurants in Australia. They have the second largest wine list in the Southern Hemisphere and it includes very difficult to get vintages and wines. We did not wish to spend too much on wines and the sommelier Ben was extremely helpful and knowledgeable assisting us to select some very nice wines at reasonable prices. But all the staff worked incredibly smoothly as a team and they were all very knowledgeable about their produce and dishes. We visited their one acre private garden where Michelle the horticulturalist provides the restaurant with the freshest possible organically grown produce, all of which are Heirloom varieties. This ensures you are served with prime produce on a seasonal basis. As and example we had the asparagus and it was superb! You can argue about the price of the degustation menu and with this type of dining you may find that not all the dishes are to your liking. However you cannot argue about the quality of the food and the service. If the degustation menu is not your cup of tea then simply dine in the bistro section (the food is prepared in the same kitchen). All in all a memorable stay for foodies like us and we will definitely come again.
