“Great restaurant in heart of Margaret River”
Reviewed 20 April 2010

Lovely food, great ambiance, very good service, was maybe a little overpriced but the whole Margaret River area is fairly expensive for food and drinks. Would recommend this restaurant however as the food was delicious, and the wine list very extensive!

“Excellent food and wine, a little let down by the ambience and service”
Reviewed 1 April 2010

I very much enjoyed my meal and the wine at Must. The winelist, particularly the A - Z of Margaret River producers, and those available by the glass, was excellent. The food was likewise great. Two things let down the experience. First, the overly loud background music. While Must also sells itself as a winebar, the larger part of the space is a restaurant and having music being played at a volume more suited to a busy bar rather took the shine off the ambience. Secondly, the junior staff had levels of engagegment with their customers that ranged from bored and bland to abrupt bordering on rude. The friendliness of an energetic and friendly senior staff member made up for the rather off-putting attitude of the juniors. Sadly, she was overheard telling some regulars that she was shortly to leave the restaurant. Here's hoping Must can find someone to replace her smiling and hospitable service.

“Set lunch is like kids menu, entre squid...”
Reviewed 14 March 2010

Set lunch is like kids menu, entre squid salad had only 3 small pieces of squid. For the main, the steak, salad and chips were all squeezed on to a kids size plate. Friend had steak that cost allmost $50 and it was put on kids size plate as well with no garnishing, salad or chips. Just plain steak!!!! Overall felt like A cheap meal!!! Taste was ok, but we'll not go back again!

“Expensive but sophisticated dinning experience in the deep south.”
Reviewed 1 February 2010

The place comes across as a chic restaurant/bar from east Sydney rather than a local in the deep south of Wa. The service is knowledgeable and professional, the food is well executed with local seafood specials and great aged steaks with a wide local wine selection, some by the glass. We went as a family with teenage kids and were greeted well, as you would expect in a holiday area. It was the food highlight of our trip, but not inexpensive, more a special occation place. Nice looking bar area as well.

“not a good experience”
Reviewed 19 January 2010

Had researched MR while in England before our trip and had seen good reviews for Must so persuaded my family that this was the place to go on one of the nights that we were staying in MR. We all wished I hadn't bothered.
Seemed ok when we arrived but as the evening went on irritating things just added up to make it all a disappointment. I had been expecting something special - particularly with the steaks, but ours was tough and overcooked which the waitress was very keen tp point out was our own fault as we had them well done.
We skipped desserts as nothing on the menu appealed but decided on the cheese board. Waited 25mins after ordering before asking where they were and was told we had to wait until they were warm enough to serve.
Very expensive for what we got - for the four of us with two starters, four mains, one cheese board, one bottle wine, one water, and two glasses port it was 325 dollars.
By far and away the most expensive and the most disappointing meal throughout our entire time in Australia
