Lunch Thurs-Mon noon-3pm
There are kitchen gardens, and then there's Millbrook Winery, a postcard-perfect estate in the rolling Perth Hills. This wonderland of orchards and gardens might not be as conspicuous as the hillside vines, man-made lake or surrounding jarrah forest, yet its contents feature prominently in Guy Jeffreys' earthy cooking. Roasted almonds, cucumber and grapes lend texture to a bowl of zingy ajo blanco, while roasted marron is scattered with wild garlic, wood sorrel and peeled citrus. Heftier dishes are fittingly country-casual. Glazed beef brisket with mustard sauce dissolves at a fork's touch and rabbit braised with viognier and parmesan ramps up well-cooked risotto. While service can be a little too laid-back, there are worse ways to spend an afternoon than exploring the value-packed wine list. Springy doughnut balls and apple and raisin turnovers are further excuses to stretch out the sitting and admire those tree-filled vistas.
