Excellent setting , menu choices , service , my one disappointment was on the limited choice of white wine by the glass . I don’t like Sauvignon Blanc and that only left one other so no choice . I asked about Chardonnay to be told not by the glass . We ordered a bottle of red for the meat eaters but I was having fish .

About Wild Swan at Mandoon Estate

Time for Fine Dining Located in Caversham in the glorious wine country of the Swan Valley, outside Perth, Mandoon Estate is open from 10 AM to 5 PM which makes it an ideal spot for a long liquid lunch (so long as you’re not driving home). This is a restaurant that offers some of the finest à la carte dining in the Swan Valley. The decor of whites and creams is elegant and relaxing, with service to match. Their executive Chef Michael Hartnell has an impressive international CV that includes Daphne’s in London and Le Caprice in the Pierre Hotel on 5th Avenue, New York. He has designed a beautifully constructed degustation menu in which each dish is matched with one of Mandoon Estate’s carefully selected wines. However discerning (or not) your palate might be, this is high-class nosh. For a surprising seafood sensation, try the chargrilled cuttlefish, with quinoa, samphire, khol rabi, and citrus tapioca. Best Dish: Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder
