Description: Wine has always been the hero in our Restaurant. The 7-course Discovery Menu is our signature experience; each course is inspired by one of our wines. Head chef, Santiago Fernandez and his team also take inspiration from the vineyards and winemaking process in creating dishes that bring a small part of our Estate to the table. Our 4-course Discovery Menu is a taster of the 7-course, allowing those with limited time to choose some of their courses, either matched to our recommendations or selected from our extensive wine list. We were delighted to be awarded one Hat as part of the 2018 Good Food Guide Awards. As our menus are a journey of discovery, we recommend you don’t view the menu in advance but if you can’t wait, take a sneak peek at the latest seasonal 7-course and 4-course menus on our website.

Magnificent degustation menu from Voyager’s incredible team led by the celebrated Santi smashed it out of the park - accompanied by a formidable line up of perfectly pared wines from the Estate.
“Eating, loving, singing and digesting are, in truth, the four acts of the comic opera known as life, and they pass like bubbles of a bottle of champagne. Whoever lets them break without having enjoyed them is a complete fool.” - Rossini.
The WA Opera cast of Rachelle Durkin, Paul-Anthony Keightley, Virgilio Marino and Tommaso Pollio were magnificent in creating an immersive highly personalised experience of magnificent voices and theatre that accompanied the food and wine to perfection. A genuine privilege to experience

Hello Trent B
It was wonderful that you could make this very special event. Voyager Estate and WA Opera have a long association, and we love hosting their annual Gala Dinner. It's such a treat for the team to hear these amazing performers, and such a rare occasion for guests to be immersed with live opera over dinner. We were pleased that the food and wine contributed to such a successful evening. Thanks for your kind review, I will pass on your comments to WA Opera.
Kind regards
Janine Carter, Cellar Door manager

We loved how beautifully this estate has been maintained and the spaciousness of it. The rose garden was colourful and beautiful.

Unfortunately they were fully booked so we weren't able to dine there.

Will visit again if we return to MR in the future.

This place is stunning but the fact that you have to pay for tastings is annoying. It’s the only place that we’ve had to pay on a week long wine tour. To be fair, they waive the tasting fee if you buy but that adds pressure. Sommelier was fine but not as engaging as other places we have been. Gardens are worth a wander

Hello Ruth L
I'm sorry you find the tasting fee annoying. We felt the charge still has value as our experience allows people to sit and taste wines at their leisure, and it means we can open all of our wines, including limited release and ages wines. As you mention, it is redeemable on purchase.
Kind regards

It was the second wine tour of ours. It's not free, so you have to pay for the trial. However, the wine was so good. After wine tasting, you can walk around the nice site.

Hello Jung-Pil C,
Thank you for your review of our wine tasting in our Wine Room. As you mention, we do charge a fee as we invite people to sit down and taste in a relaxed style, with a choice that includes all of our limited release and aged wines. the fee is redeemable if you purchase any bottle of wine to take away with you. I'm pleased you did enjoy our wines, and our gardens.
Kind regards

Awesome food and wine experience lunch. Beautiful and immaculate location, amazing venue with lovely walled rose and vegetable garden to explore before or after lunch with a magnificent Cape Dutch style building that houses the restaurant and wine tasting hall. We had a delicious, silver service, four course, degustation lunch with matching wines..even do a smaller tasting for the Skipper, so no one needs to miss the food and wine taste sensation! Top service with very knowledgable staff taking care of you...Fab experience thanks all at Voyager.

Hello Ngaire R,
Thank you, for visiting us, and for writing such a lovely review of your lunch. It sounds like your driver had a wine flight with their meal, which has proven very popular for those who are being careful about what they consume to ensure they are safe to drive. It would be a shame for people to miss our pairings, given Head Chef, Santi takes such care to create dishes with the best balance of wine and food. Hope to see you again soon.
Kind regards
Janine Carter, Cellar Door manager
