It was great experience, the fixed menu is a great idea. With shared platter, everything was good except the pork circle thing. It tasted a little weird. The dessert platter was ok, the gelatin(pear?) was weird choice to be included, the marshmallow was too hard and weird texture. The highlight was definitely the main for me. The steak was well flavoured and tender.

We arrived late for the lunch session due to our kids but the staff there were very considerate. The food was divine, with the recommended wines truly matched with the food we ordered.
Thank you for your lovely review on our restaurant 'Locale'. We are pleased that yuo and your children were well looked after and that you all enjoyed your experience with us. We hope you can come and visit us again in the not too distant future. Regards...Lisa Guest Relations Manager

About 'Locale' at De Bortoli Yarra Valley

Picture this. You’re sitting outside in an enchanting garden surrounded by a panoramic view of rolling green hills and nearby vineyards. You can smell the aromas of some of the greatest fine dining Victoria has to offer. Sound like a dream? This can be a reality at Locale, the De Bortoli Estate’s home restaurant. There is nothing like sitting out and enjoying the best wines this fine state has to offer along with excellent food. Locale’s menu changes regularly. Not only does it vary with the seasons to give you the freshest tastiest produce, but also with the day of the week. Why would any restaurant that wants to see return custom serve the same stuff on Monday as they do on Sunday? Then there are vegetarian menus and menus for public holidays as well. Chef Adam Mead has based his slew of menus on refined Italian cuisine and numbers such as a slow roast lamb shoulder Rotolo or a pacific reef cobia maybe be on offer. At Locale, you’ll have a fine-dining experience to remember. Best dish: Suckling Pig - Crisp skin olive oil poached shoulder and leg, rolled loin, savoy cabbage salad, and champagne vinaigrette
