The Finest Cuisine

Our award winning cuisine, just like the bush surroundings reflects a tantalising combination of truly Australian and European influences. Of course, each sumptuous dish is complemented by our premium quality wines.

Our philosophy

At Darlington Estate, our food is not about the ego of the chef, it's about the food itself. For that reason, we don't have a picture of him here. In all honesty, it's also because he's not a big showy type - he's just about the food. Our a la carte menu is a demonstration of cultivating the best in the centrepiece of each dish. This can only be accomplished by a careful balance of the accompaniments to ensure taste combinations and presentation are both exquisite in flavour and presentation.

This season's menu was designed to offer entertainment to all tastes, meaning that no matter what you think your favourite dishes might be at a first reading of the menu, there are surprises to be found in the dishes that you would never normally order. Devout steak-o-philes have been seduced by the chicken and scallop risotto!
