Restaurant of the Month

Lake House Hotel and Restaurant

About

Immerse yourself in one of Victoria's most enriching hospitality experiences. A team passionate about hospitality delivers beautiful cutting edge, seasonal food matched with an internationally acclaimed wine list. Under the direction of Executive Chef Alla Wolf Tasker and Head Chef David Green the kitchen work from the ground up producing virtually everything, from house baked breads to an extensive charcuterie range, on the premises. And Alla's dream of a raft of excellent small scale local suppliers has finally come about - due in no small part to her own efforts. Several excellent organic farms are now located within minutes of Lake House.

Produce is often hand picked for a morning delivery. Local lamb, rare breed pork, grass fed beef, fresh water fish, sheep and goat's milk cheese, heirloom fruit from old orchards and windfalls from local gardens arrive at the kitchen, which since the early eighties, has fostered an open door policy, mentoring and supporting small sustainable producers and growers and developing a local food culture amongst fellow restauranteurs, chefs and residents.

One of Victoria's most enriching hospitality experiences. Regular guests will tell you of their favourite season and of memorable dishes. Perhaps the butter poached pheasant with chestnuts and Farrow in Autumn, the spring lamb with asparagus and morels. The duck with orange braised witlof; the golden roasted free range chicken of summer with corn and yabbies, or the truffled Pecorino tart with artichokes Barigoule, eel, Murray Cod and trout; rabbit and hare, speak of local waterways and fields.

Wild damsons, Winter Nealis pears, quinces and yellow crab apples feature in fabulous desserts and, in time honoured country fashion, are also made into delicious preserves for enhancing leaner seasons. Each seasonal menu takes you on a trip down country lanes, through the orchards and across the farm paddocks of the region.

During the day, the sunlit restaurant offers magnificent views through wonderfully large windows. Guests enjoying drinks at dusk on the outdoor terraces will witness the daily ritual of our resident kookaburra family flying in to be fed.
