Dine At A Regional Icon

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. The beautiful destination dining room sits overlooking lake Daylesford and is high on the bucket list for many gourmet travellers.

In cooler months; views through the bare Silverbirch and Poplar trees provide striking views of the misty lake and foreshore. In the warmer months the picturesque outdoor terraces and particularly the Lagoon Deck are a popular spot for pre or post lunch or dinner drinks; it also happens to be the favourite resting place of the family of resident kookaburras.

Restauranteur and Culinary Director Alla Wolf Tasker AM has gathered enough national and international awards to fill virtually every wall of her fabled house on the lake. Alla is well known as a passionate advocate and ambassador for the Australian hospitality industry; participating in multiple food festivals around the world. She is a regular guest chef on Masterchef Australia and her second book Lake House: Three Decades On was released in 2018 to rave reviews.

At Lake House she remains at the helm of a team of creative and dedicated young chefs who under her guidance continue to impress the savviest world travellers with the unique Lake House restaurant experience. The Signature Tasting Menu is a must for all visitors; especially paired with Sommelier selected beverages (some sourced from the impressive 13,000 bottle cellar).  A la carte menus also offer guests options when dining for multiple nights (inevitable for those interested in a world class food and wine experience).
