It is so great for locals to have a lovely deli to visit ...... the produce & variety is wonderful. Truffle Brie, Pepper Pecorino, Duck & Orange Pate & the Strawberry & Rhubarb jam ...... all tried & tested at home. Will be returning for more. Yum ! & the restaurant is pretty good too.

It was a Sunday... Though it was not that busy. Service was very slow. The staff need better training and be aware of the customer. The food was OK though very small portion sizes..

Two Fat Blokes Kitchen is located in a beautiful setting on Broke Road, neighbouring De Iuliis Wines and the Butterfly Gallery.

There is seating outside underneath the Gum trees, overlooking adjacent vineyards, alternatively they have a lounge area inside as well as more formal dining tables. Sitting outside, initially the service was a little slow once we sat down. We ordered sausage/kranksy tasting plate with saurkraut and mustards, and a gnocchi special with gorgonzola cream sauce and crispy sage. My gnocchi was a little on the small side for $18 or so, but the sausage/kransky plate was great. It was a lovely cheese kransky which I do recommend as worth trying.

Looking around, the outdoor area is home to a vegie and herb gardens for use in the kitchen. Inside, the walls were adorned with shelving full of gourmet goodies, any relish or sauce imaginable. Crispbread, olive oils, flavoured salts, and the centre deli was full of smallgoods, gourmet cheeses and antipasto which I couldnt leave without an extra purchase. Try the black pudding and for those a little scared of the colour, the 'white' pudding' is a fantastic alternative.

Overall, the food here was good. They have a few wines on offer and few of the usual beer offerings, as well as coffee and tea. The service was a little haphazard depending on who in the team you are dealing with however one lady was particularly knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and deli products. The atmosphere inside is lacking slightly, most likely attributed to the fact is also serves as a retail environment, leaving it a little cold, so choose a seat outside.

I visited two fat blokes with my husband, and had a lovely experience. I was greeted by a lovely lady by the name of Dena, she was very helpful, and gave us a lovely experience. I will definitely be coming back!
