Vasse Felix, Margaret River

Cnr Caves Rd & Tom Cullity Drive, Cowaramup, Western Australia

Father & son bonding time from back in December. Three years before it had been a drive from Melbourne to Adelaide to watch the 2nd Ashes test. This time it was the 3rd test in Perth. The less said about the cricket the better. But it was time well spent with my father and a chance to see a bit more of WA (my previous visit having entailed running a 3 hour workshop, a beer, then back on the plane). This time 3 nights in Margaret River, 3 nights in Perth. A Monday morning flight from Sydney, got us to Vasse Felix just in time for lunch. Nice. 

A pretty decent lunch it was too in a modern vineyard were the food is taken as seriously as the wine. It was a lovely setting on the verandah with trendy sculptures in the garden. WA squid with buckwheat ‘risotto’, sous-vide duck with burnt aubergine, followed by a deconstructed pie. All very on trend, all very good. Certainly one of the best vineyard restaurants I’ve visited.
