Food was all enjoyable. Atmosphere was a good balance for a celebration for a family with young kids - also has a small play area outside and plenty of space to run around
Dear James Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your experience at Locale restaurant. Our loyal guests with families do love the concept of being able to have some lunch and afterwards have the kids run around in our beautiful gardens and enjoy the playground. Regards... Guest Relations Manager

Delicious focaccia bread. Had the antipasto and charcuterie to share. Enjoyed their wine selection and even bought some of the moscato wine!
Dear Krystal It is always a delight to hear back from our customers. Our house made fresh bread is always delicious along with the black garlic butter that they are currently serving with it. The valley is beautiful at the moment with all the changing colours, so hope you were able to experience all it has to offer this time of the year. Regards...Lisa Guest Relations Manager

Wonderful food. Wonderful location. Although the food took ages to come out of the kitchen (35 min for starter and another 45 min for the mains) we would still come back .

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
