OUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS

DINING OUT

RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS

HERE ARE JUST SOME OF OUR FAVOURITES

The Margaret River wine region is well known for it’s wine and is complemented by the vast selection of quality vineyard restaurants serving outstanding cuisine.  Keep in mind that the vineyard restaurants are open mainly during the day where you can enjoy the scenic drive and vineyards vistas.

In the evenings there are plenty of restaurants in town which are open for dinner. The townsite of Margaret River is an 8 – 10 minute drive and offers everything from casual pub grub, funky wine bars, bistros, small local eateries and gourmet takeaway.

At the beach, The Common (at the Gnarabup Beach Resort) serves a great evening meal plus offer an awesome takeaway menu.  The Larder Gourmet Delicatessen is another favourite offering pre-made chef inspired take-home meals, great when you've been touring all day and want to relax at home and enjoy a beautiful meal with no fuss!

Daytime, The White Elephant cafe at Gnarabup beach is our pick (pictured below).  Open for coffee, breakfast and lunches, it's an awesome spot overlooking the beach, a favourite local haunt.

If you looking for takeaway, our favourite gourmet take-away is The Larder serving pre-made take home meals that can be easily reheated at home.
