Voyager Estate

Wine has always been the hero in our Restaurant. The 7-course Discovery Menu is our signature experience; each course is inspired by one of our wines. Head chef, Santiago Fernandez and his team also take inspiration from the vineyards and winemaking process in creating dishes that bring a small part of our Estate to the table. Our 4-course Discovery Menu is a taster of the 7-course, allowing those with limited time to choose some of their courses, either matched to our recommendations or selected from our extensive wine list. We were delighted to be awarded one Hat as part of the 2018 Good Food Guide Awards. As our menus are a journey of discovery, we recommend you don’t view the menu in advance but if you can’t wait, take a sneak peek at the latest seasonal 7-course and 4-course menus on our website.

Stopped in here for a wine tasting ($10 for a flight). The building and surrounding grounds were absolutely beautiful and the wine was great! Awesome spot to sit and relax. Only complaint would be that the staff weren't very attentive, but they were really nice...MoreHello Elyse D, Thanks for your feedback on your experience with us. I'm very pleased you enjoyed our wines and your tasting, and we appreciate the recommendation. Kind regards Janine Carter, Cellar Door manager

This was the most enjoyable restaurant I visited throughout my WA holiday. The menu was imaginative, the ingredients were freshly sourced and the scenery was beautiful. I went with my parents, children and husband and our top two favourite dishes were the lamb carpaccio and the Kashmiri chicken but we didn’t dislike anything we ate. My only criticism? While the main menu was extremely innovative, the children’s menu was fairly standard (eg. Fish and chips, burger and chips). Where are we going to find our gastronômes of the future?

We chose this restaurant specifically because of its high Tripadvisor rating. Surprise! We were the only guests in the establishment from 7:30-9:15. One of the main problems is that the Chef's ego has turned the menu into an eclectic wasteland. The meats that are offered are the cheapest cuts (blood sausage, cheeks, belly), and if one selects a Ribeye, that takes the price to $65. It is so "special" that the average diner will find little to titillate the palate. The "Dukkah" bread plate had little bread with an exotic spice. The Angel Hair Pasta had some crab (not generous as the menu indicated) that was not properly cleaned - lots of crab shell to find with your tongue and teeth and spit out in the middle of a romantic dinner. The Bocconcini Salad special had a minimal portion of bread served. All in all, not an inspiring evening

The Urban Bean

Reviewed By bigstock - london

Been every morning for our breakfast and not disappointed. All the staff are very friendly and a big thank you to Conner who advised us to visit various places. You were busy but still found time for us.
An excellent range of food ideas and my personal favourite has to be the toasted banana, walnut and almond loaf. The coffee is a work of art ....... not to mention very flavoursome.
Well done everyone.

Cafe Boranup

A cute little cafe in the forest, with the stunning Boranup Gallery next door. Cafe Boranup is 4kms South of Lake Cave on Caves Road Forest Grove, keep an eye out or our sign. Please go to our website for a map and GPS co-ordinates if that helps. We are friendly, do great coffee, make our own cakes and our lunches are hearty, delicious and reasonably priced.

Interesting venue with an inside/outside cafe and a seperate art studio.
Cafe was busy and while the service was frendly and quick the result was substandard food ie cold/luke warm sausage roll (tasty) uncooked zucchini, egg slice. The requested "plain" sausage roll arrived with salad.
Coffees were good.
This place has promise... the staff just need to take more care with their presentation of food.
$58 for 3 items (sausage roll, egg slice & croissant) & 2 coffees also created surprise.
Wouldn't return for food.
