Vasse Felix Makes Gourmet Traveller's Top 10 WA Restaurants
We are thrilled to have been included in the Top 10 Restaurants of WA as part of Gourmet Traveller's Annual Restaurant Guide, announced today.
"Caves Road – arguably the cradle of the Margaret River wine region – is rich in history, yet also plays home to forward-thinkers aplenty. Among the vanguard is Vasse Felix, a powerhouse estate comprising a modern art gallery, sleek tasting room and urbane restaurant overlooking the region's original vines. The kitchen maintains the progressive momentum with detailed dishes big on deliciousness. Jerusalem artichoke hash browns make perfect podiums for tuna belly sashimi, while kingfish is cured in miso and sake, showered in cubes of capsicum jelly then finished with shio koji-infused macadamia milk and makrut lime vinaigrette. Slow-roasted Wagin duck breast stuffed with chicken and bacon farce, meanwhile, benefits greatly from shiitake chutney and gingery blackberry sauce. Service is just as engaging as the marquee wine list, which caters to both traditional and contemporary tastes. Desserts, in the vein of weightless olive-oil cake cloaked by fine strips of persimmon "leather", maintain the high right to the end."
