Restaurants & Cafes

Local chefs thrive on integrating seasonal produce into their menus at Salinger's Cafe and the Great Western Hotel in Great Western. From west to east, Barangaroo Wines and Pomonal Estate have made tasting plates their trademark with their impressive local produce platters.

Enjoy al fresco dining with views of the dramatic peaks from the sweeping verandah at the Halls Gap Hotel or the back deck of Harvest Halls Gap Cafe & Provedore. With a menu proudly offering local wines and fresh produce from across the region, grab a table at this stylish cafe with indoor and outdoor options. Livefast Cafe and Paper Scissors Rock Brew Co. also in the heart of Halls Gap, serve coffee + gourmet fare with a twist and thirst-quenching ales brewed on-site.

Celebrate nature and have an unforgettable gourmet experience at the award-winning Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld, with the stunning backdrop of the Grampians National Park. Don't leave town without a treat from the historic Dunkeld Old Bakery or coffee from Koopmans. Further west in Hamilton, don't go past the Roxburgh for scrumptious snacks and, of course, more coffee!

The region draws on multicultural influences, so if Italian-inspired modern Australian is more your style, then book a table at The Views in Halls Gap; if you hanker for the exotic flavours of Indian spices, don't go past the intriguing Spirit of Punjab with its amazing decor and authentic cuisine.

In the west, discover Wartook Valley's quaint The Wander Inn or call in to the rustic farmgates at Grampians Olive Co. in Laharum and Red Rock Olives in Pomonal, where you can share grazing plate of delish fare and stock up on all your olives, olive oils, vinegars and other delightful goodies. If you're in Ararat try Forager's at the TAMA for a dose of art & caffeine or Chally's Bistro at the Ararat golf course with their delicious seasonal menu.
