Description: Nestled beside the picturesque Wilyabrup Brook, the Vasse Felix Cellar Door, Restaurant and Art Gallery take in sweeping views of the pristine landscape and Margaret River's oldest vines. A shared passion for precision extends throughout Vasse Felix in the striking architecture, manicured grounds and astute use of space. Everyone is welcome to indulge their senses with fine wine and fine food at Vasse Felix, or visit the original underground cellar from where Margaret River winemaking began. Restaurant open 12 - 4pm daily. Reservations highly recommended. Thank you for posting feedback about your visit. We value the opportunity to consistently refine our Restaurant and Cellar Door experience.

“Sip, not skull...”

Vasse Felix is set amongst the most beautiful grounds. Lots of grass for the kids to run around (not sure if you can have picnics there but if you can... the perfect spot).

Free wine tasting. (Be careful if you are the designated driver).

Products to also purchase. Ask about the specials with home delivery.

We actually enjoyed the house wine (which was only $15 per bottle when we went in March 2014) probably the most. You can only get them from the winery, not in stores. Great to be able to take home and bring a bottle to your next dinner invite.

There is also a restaurant (we had already eaten) but the setting overlooking the property looked amazing.

Didn't think we would be there for too long, but amazing how time flies when you are having fun!

“Dainty, delicious, delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We dropped in for lunch, no booking. The staff didn't bat an eyelid and found us a nice quiet table with a lovely outlook over the vineyard and gardens.
We tried entree and main courses and loved both. I had a carrot tofu entree which was sublime. Delicate flavours, beautiful presentation. A delicate vegetable " gratin"to follow. My husband had the lamb and pronounced it superb. Portions are not large but perfect for lunch. And of course the wine was lovely! Would come back here in a heart beat.

“Delicious meal, beautiful winery.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Vasse Felix was a recommendation for a fancy lunch so we headed there on our first day in Margaret River. We were not disappointed. After parking and strolling through the sculpture garden and past the vines, we arrived at the restaurant, which is on the first floor of a building which also houses the cellar door, gift shop and art gallery. The building is lovely and the views are gorgeous. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, the meals were lovely, a fantastic combination of flavours and almost everything cooked to perfection. Dishes enjoyed by our party of 6 included the octopus, heirloom tomato, almond and olive entree, the venison, beetroot, yoghurt and pepperberry main and the lamb shoulder, bagna cauda, lettuce and fennel main. For dessert we tried the popcorn, caramel, ginger and yuzu combination. It was all amazing, the only exception being the lamb shoulder which despite its fantastic flavour was rather tough and included too much fat, bone and gristle for my liking. There is also a $65 3 course set menu, with 2 options for each course. The service was spot-on and whist there was no specific children's menu on paper, they were able to provide an activity pack which kept the kids busy around their pasta and vanilla bean icecream. The wine was incredible and I would certainly visit Vasse Felix again.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stopped in to Vasse Felix as part of our Bushtucker Winery Tour. The food was fabulous! The views are lovely overlooking the winery. The service was fantastic. Definitely worth a visit!

The wine tasting, museum/gallery were very good too!

We actually stopped by for lunch on the Harvest wine tour and it was fantastic food! Atmosphere is great with a nice view over the wine yard. The food was creative and delicious !! Wish I had time to do the dinner as well!
