Voyager Estate DegustationWondering where the best dining spots are in Margaret River?

This year’s hot spots are amongst the celebrated winners of the 2018 West Australian Good Food Guide Awards where many of our favourite winery restaurants and several main street venues cleaned up!

Number 1 hot spot is the picturesque winery restaurant, Wills Domain, after being crowned the 2018 West Australian Good Food Guide Restaurant Of The Year, an impressive and well-deserved accolade.

Voyager Estate continues to deliver a truly magnificent dining experience winning Best Regional Restaurant, Best Regional Chef and placing #3 in Top 10 Restaurants.  Other consistently top-notch local establishments in the coveted Top 10 Restaurants are Leeuwin Estate at #6 and Vasse Felix at #7.  Other well known whilst Cullen Winery, Yarri and Xanadu were named in the Top 50 Restaurants.

Finalists in the Best Casual Dining category where two local hero’s, Fishbone, a casual Japenese restaurant at Fishbone winery and Pizzica, a little Italian pizza joint, underground in Margaret River’s main street.

You are spoilt for choice, with award-winning wineries and restaurants, boutique breweries and quirky cafes around every corner, you’re sure to find a unique and rewarding experience to satisfy your desire.

In the evening, the dining scene is mostly situated along the main street with everything from casual cafes, gourmet burgers, Asian takeaway and modern dining restaurants serving gourmet Australiana fare.

My favourites are Morries, Miki’s Open Kitchen (Japenese), Swings Taphouse and Pizzica (Oh, and the good old Setter’s Tavern).  Just out of town, over the bridge is the Brewhouse, a micro brewery with laid back Aussie BBQ garden style and great food.
