Rare Hare, Merricks North 

The acclaimed casual diner at Willow Creek Vineyard, right next to Jackalope Hotel, has a hand-crafted wood-fired oven from where delectable dishes emerge, such as Wood roasted pumpkin with zaatar, sesame and herbs or Barramundi wings with almond skordalia  and ‘nduja butter. The only thing to rival the food are the glorious views over the vines.
