    The estate that this restaurant sits on is simply beautiful. The views were great and the architecture is beautiful and modern. Staff were welcoming and very accommodating. Vibe of the restaurant was warm and relaxing, perfect start to our weekend getaway. The highlight was easily the bread and the accompanying butter. Good stuff, would come back just for it.

    It was a lovely experience - one we were really looking forward to, but it didn't blow us away. Don't misunderstand, we are glad we went and ticked it off our list but I am not sure we would go back again in a hurry.

    We made a booking over 3 weeks ahead & were seated in the corner of an empty large high table. They moved us after the 3rd course. But It was very disappointing to be seated at that table especially since it’s a high quality restaurant and we booked so early in advance & there were still tables available when we booked.

    Amazing service, lovely waitress. We had the 5 course degustation with paired wines, and the food was amazing (especially the Marron dish!) However the wine list could be improved ??

About the restaurant

Hatted restaurant on the Mornington

Inside the boutique Jackalope Hotel, nestled in a vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula, lies the decadent dining experience of Doot Doot Doot. With black banquette style seating and undulating installation of 10,000 globes on the ceiling inside juxtaposed against the working winery outside, it’s a setting unlike anywhere else.

The five-course set menu evolves each month with the seasons, with an emphasis on ingredients from their kitchen garden and local Mornington Peninsula producers. Matching wines are available, or order off their extensive wine list, featuring wines from the on-site Willow Creek vineyard, as well as a selection of Australian and international wines by both the glass and bottle. Pre-dinner cocktails are also available at Flaggerdoot, serving up a mix of favourite classics and original creations with unique flavour combinations.

Best dish: Glazed quail Peninsula
