Over three consecutive nights, we had three radically different dinners at Renee's extraordinary rural restaurant. A vegetarian and fish dinner for five (lentil and mushroom entree followed by fillets in a Spanish sauce) on Good Friday, wood-fired pizzas for six and more on Saturday (including some brilliant tofu blending for the non-dairy eaters, and an amazing New Orleans-inspired 'muffalata', which needs to be eaten rather than described) and for Easter Sunday, a traditional-style roast lamb with oven vegetables and perfectly timed 'challa' bread. Though our group doesn't drink much alcohol, the merlot-tampanillo blend red wine and Czech-style pilsener beer, both made on-site at Renee's and Dave's vineyard, perfectly matched our meals and mood. Renee is a welcoming host who invests great effort and expertise in all her meals. The strong international flavour of her intimate country restaurant is perhaps surprising in such a setting – but this is the Goldfields, after all! Strongly recommended.
