    The food was really rather amazing but we were disappointed with the service. We would certainly go back and try again because the food really was that good!

    The views from the balcony during the daytime in Spring are spectacular. Presentation of the plated food is elegantly simple with creative flair.

    Service was friendly but slow. Overall food was good especially the black angus steak and good reasonably priced wines too.

    Delightful service. Attentive , prompt but discreet. A bit cool due to the breeze out on the deck but it was a sunny day in midwinter.

    Kids meals were pretty uninspired. Four of us chose the Sunday roast and it was to be honest less than expected. Meat was a little tough and huge (like a large steak), would have preferred more roast potatoes and veggies. From previous occasions where we have thoroughly enjoyed the food and experience, this one was a little disappointing.

    As above. One of the better venues visited in the beautiful Swan Valley. My daughter had her 40th birthday there in March which was a great success and enjoyed by her guests. Highly recommended.

    Food was great, best sharing plate I've ever had. Location and ambience was great as we took our mother out for mother's day lunch. We will certainly dine there again in the near future and already have recommended it to family and friends

    The view and setting is beautiful, the food all looked amazing but was very average taste. We felt like Manu “where is the sauce?” gnocchi with no sauce was a 1st for us......fish special served with mash but no sauce.....chicken, not enough sauce (despite the huge breast) We liked the view and atmosphere, but not sure we’ll rush back.

About the restaurant

Hear the Valley Calling

Enjoy the best of the best at this award-winning boutique winery and restaurant named after the small Western Australian bird often sited along the banks of the Swan River that flows through the Swan Valley and past this venue’s front door. Boasting valley and vineyard views from the rammed earth building’s expansive verandah, visitors can stop by the cellar door and enjoy sampling a range of wines to match the food on offer at the restaurant next door. Only open for morning tea or lunch, Sitella is perfect for day trip dining outside suburbia. Diners can choose from a set three course meal or a la carte menu featuring lesser known dishes of wild rabbit and new season mushroom risotto; Morton Bay bug tails Gow Gee with a shiitake and brocollini stirfry, and fenugreek mango butter; and noisette of kangaroo loin with yakadirri potato pikelette and roasted tomato and red onion marmalade.

Best dish: crisp duck leg confit curry coriander broth with jasmine rice and pineapple relish
