Lake House

Much lauded and awarded, Lake House strides into its 32nd year without a shred of complacency. A new private room and aperitivo deck - a must for pre-dinner drinks with its comfortable cushioned furniture, lake views and Spritz list - underline the point, as does the well-upholstered dining room and crack service team, which nails the sweet spot between formality and country hospitality. The formerly Eurocentric carte now seamlessly and skilfully embraces Asian and Middle Eastern flavours. Pan-fried barramundi is teamed with bug dumplings and kimchi, while Moroccan-spiced goat arrives in brik pastry, accompanied by yoghurt and preserved lemon. Local ingredients at the peak of their powers - organic tomatoes, perhaps, with burrata, olive crumbs and basil, or berries and buttermilk in the autumnramble dessert - form the backbone of the menu, while a superb wine list is yet another reason to enjoy Lake House's renowned accommodation.
