Pulled in for breakfast on Friday morning, (after all - the signs on the road and on the front of the building state breakfast). Parked the car. Walked to the door, only to find it closed on a Friday morning (and other mornings) for breakfast! Disappointed!

We booked the christmas lunch 2 days before date and got rejected everywhere we called. However, the Penny Garden gave us an option instead of immediate rejection. They were fully booked but would love to set up a table outside. It was in the shade and they had ventilators if necessary. I was very pleased with their approach. On top... More

Penny Garden has recently come under new management. While it is obvious that the owners are still learning the trade, the location, food and service is great, the waiter was attentive and friendly and has a smile on his face. They now have an outdoor bar, for those who just want to stop by and have a drink without the... More

The owners and staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Our ladies club celebrated their Christmas lunch here with a fabulous menu and very helpful and friendly staff. The setting and menu were superb and the little extra touches they provided for us were lovely. Thank you for a very enjoyable day.

It is a lovely setting in a great location. Décor and furniture is very basic. We went for lunch and found the menu very overpriced with very average food. Very basic steak sandwich and very greasy fish and chips. Service was very good.

Thank lynettemay53
Management response:

Hi lynettemay53, apologies for not enjoying the steak sandwich and fish and chips. I'm quite surprised as these are our most popular dishes as we use top quality scotch fillet, sour dough bread and fresh local snapper, as for the prices, these have been the same for the last 2 years. My Wife, myself and our Manager are currently in... More

Situated in the beautiful swan valley this is a great spot for lunch if you are passing and would prefer a change from the cafes attached to the vineyards. Staff were all lovely and attentive whilst not being disruptive.

Owner Roger Patten has been a chef for 50 years and started Penny Garden Restaurant with his wife Pam & daughter Jasmine. Before commencement of construction, old Australian pennies were discovered at the entrance to the site. This, combined with the picturesque views and a love of plants & fauna by the owners, formed the history behind the name Penny Garden. Chef Earl Mashmett has over 20 years experience in bars & restaurants in Perth and has created a fresh menu using local produce wherever possible. With gluten free and vegetarian options available, Penny Garden is happy to cater to dietary requirements. All cakes, salad dressings, sauces & marinades are made right here on the premises. Penny Garden is a fully licensed venue with good range of wine, beer and spirits and we also offer split billing. However, you may BYO wine / champagne if you wish (corkage charged at $5 per bottle). We recommend booking to ensure your table
