VASSE FELIX LUNCH

IMG_1067

Just before Christmas we decided to venture down south to the Margaret River Region but more importantly to have an end of year late lunch with our friends at the Vasse Felix Winery. The restaurant is truly an amazing place to have lunch with a spectacular view one storey up over looking the vineyard. We sat down out on the balcony and enjoyed a few of Vasse’s best on offer starting with their sparkling, moving on to their white and finishing with our main meal and a very nice red.

I don’t like to post photos from restaurants without permission so my apologies on not going into too much detail on the food, never the less I would rate this restaurant as among one of WA’s best! As you can see by the photos below, the food by chef Aaron Carr was just want we needed to celebrate a big year for us all.

INCONTRO

I’m really sad to see Incontro go! This by far was my most favourite restaurant to go to on a regular basis. The friendly staff, the awesome head chef and lets not forget about the amazing food, all played a huge part in making dinner at Incontro a really great experience. We never ordered off the menu rather had Chef Peter Manifis cook for us instead. We even got to try dishes that he had been working on and that were not even being served that night. The best night I ever had there was when I proposed to my now beautiful fiancée Emma and that will be remembered forever.

I managed to book in just before the Christmas eve deadline and boy it was packed. I managed to take a few photos below (don’t know why I hadn’t posted about it sooner) of our last dinner before it had to close its doors. I would Like to say a Massive thank you to Anna, Peter and all the friendly staff that helped make our dining experience at Incontro something special.
