This was our third time at Cullen's restaurant and each time it exceeds our expectations. The quality of food is superb and the service is excellent, not to mention the superb wines that are paired with each meal. Couldn't rate highly enough!

I was taken here for lunch and wine tasting and was completely blown away by the whole concept of the biodynamic wine and food. It was so hard to make a choice from the menu that we decided to share a variety of entrees, mains and one dessert! The preparation did not compete with the flavours of the food and... More

Had heard great things about Cullens and being foodies, and having tried many restaurants in the region we thought it time to try Cullens. We were so disappointed. Aside from the fact that the portions were so small (and I am a very small eater) it was expensive and the food unremarkable. We couldnt really find anything enticing on the... More

Service good, food nicely presented and good choice of their wines. Serves very small for the price. Appetiser octopus was succulent. Appetiser green mango salad was a bit too acidic. Sirloin nicely done recommend. Green salad all rocket, poor dressing could not taste any honey, very poor. Decor reasonable.

After a big day touring around, we decided to pop into Cullens for lunch at 3:30pm - we were a bit worried that the kitchen would be closed but thankfully they were still very much open. We had a wonderful meal of duck and beef outside and were very thankful when one of the staff moved us away from the... More

Lovely place for a nice lunch while wine tasting in Margaret River area. Not so serious and proper as the others which is a preferred option for us, casual yet very high quality good food. The services was great and good knowledge of wine pairing with your food. A must try while in the area I think.

Incredible wines which surpass majority of wines with additives and non organic vineyard practices. We wanted to stay as menu looked amazing after we tried a number of wines but fully booked! We will be back! Staff super attentive and wines were delicious. Especially the 2009 and 2015 Chardonnay - pay for a taste you will not regret it. YUMMY

Wines with seared scallops are a curtain-raiser, alongside the goat's cheese curd and beetroot in chickpea pancakes are made- in- heaven food. My pan-fried whiting paired with the local vino was spectacular. Breezy service, laid-back comfort adds the right notes to this veteran eatery

We were here for a birthday lunch and it suited that day perfectly. The wine was free-flowing and they made the ordering by a big group very simple. The staff were attentive, and the wine was of course excellent - even if they did seem to run out of a bunch of different varieties.
