Hands down the best truffle fries I’ve had this season - a warm and distinctive character in the brewery. Th setting was superb and the perfect backdrop for a romantic drink or two, or catch up and laughs with mates.
I had a fantastic dining experience with high quality ingredients combined in a most delicious way. The wine from the vineyard was well price and great flavour.
I visited Tantalus Estate for lunch with a group of friends and was thoroughly impressed with this beautiful winery. The decor is reminiscent of an Italian Villa with a chic, modern edge and oozes class from the moment you walk down the driveway. We did a wine tasting before our lunch commences and found most of the wines to be quite impressive. On the lunch menu, there was only one vegetarian option which didn’t sound overly appealing but turned out to be very good. It was charred sweet corn with capsicum, tofu, nutritional yeast, rimu and kale, a strange combination of ingredients that somehow all tied together beautifully. We also ordered the potato bread (which was delicious), truffle fries (which were fairly average), a cheese board (which was fantastic) and a chefs selection of desserts (all of which were tasty but nothing particularly memorable). Overall it was a lovely experience, but I would like to see at least one more vegetarian option on the menu in the future.
