d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant
This favourite haunt is nestled under the same cottage roof as d’Arenberg’s cellar door, and the views of vineyards rolling to the coast are as delectable as the food. In fact, given the kitchen’s passion for neighbourhood goodies – olives, cheeses, nuts, fruits, game meats and fish – the kinship between the landscapes outside and the flavours within is impressive. Hence dishes like local turkey livers, seared and served atop pickled plums and orange brioche, or their tantalising slow-roasted pork belly with citrus jam. Add the joy of playing perfect match between each course and d’Arenberg’s stellar wines, and the scene is picture perfect.
