Best Restaurants in Margaret River

Share this post

Narrowing down the best restaurants in Margaret River is a tricky task. It depends on how long you have and what style of dining you prefer.  

Let’s begin with wining and dining ….

If I had to pick 3 or 4 of my favourite vineyards with restaurants, Vasse Felix comes in No. 1 for both the food and wine. Make sure you peruse the Holmes A Court gallery whilst you’re on the estate, the owner’s private art collection is remarkable.

The rustic ambience of Leeuwin Estate and extravagance of the neighbouring property, Voyager are equally No. 1. So not to be disappointed, advanced bookings are recommended for most vineyard restaurants.

Completely unique to the region is Voyager’s guided tasting experience which I can highly recommend. A knowledgeable sommelier can assist you, or you can explore the wines at your own pace with their specially-designed iPad app.

In the evenings, you’ll find an array of eateries in Margaret River’s main street. Morries and Miki’s are my favourites, closely followed by Swings and the Arc of Iris. Bookings are advised.

Morries: a funky restaurant and wine bar at the top of town. Amazing food, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Miki’s Open Kitchen: seriously authentic Japenese. Try the Port Hedland squid tempura, leeks, chilli nanban and black ink tobiko caviar.

Swings Taphouse: A casual establishment serving a tapas style menu and ‘wine on tap’, a first for Margaret River. Beautiful open fire in winter.

A Nespresso machine and complimentary pods can be found at The Roozen Residence, however, if you are searching for the perfect espresso cruise into town and check out Egberts, Blue Ginger or Witchy Brews at the old Darnells store in Witchcliffe.
