Experience Alla Wolf-Tasker’s Lake House restaurant

An icon in regional dining, Lake House has long been considered to be one of Australia’s best restaurants, championing local seasonal cuisine long before it became a mantra for many. Indeed restauranteur and Culinary Director Alla Wolf Tasker has enough national and international awards to fill virtually every wall of her fabled house on the lake.

Menus change with the availability of new seasonal produce. As part of our overall policy of wherever possible reducing “food miles” and developing a personal relationship with actual suppliers – much of the produce is local. Some of it is organic – but mostly it is the result of great care and passion on the part of small growers for whom biodiversity and sustainable agricultural practices are firmly on the agenda. A lunch or dinner experience at the Lake House Restaurant is not to be missed.
