“Cape Lodge is a Boutique Country House Vineyard Hotel & Restaurant in the heart of Margaret River Wine Country” and was very close to both the Canal Rocks Park at the Indian Ocean coastline and the top-notch wineries we visited, including Vasse Felix, Cullen & Moss Wood.  On our first night the four of us enjoyed a delicious dinner at Cape Lodge’s highly rated gourmet restaurant.

  1. Hi R & R,

    Yummy looking and sounds like a wonderful few days in wine country, similar to our trip last year in region between Sydney and Melbourne. We stayed in Rutherglen and ate and drank some great meals over two days!

    By the way, your chocolate hazelnut squares looked so good that I found a recipe and just made them to serve for dinner party Monday night! Extras will be given away – just too good to keep around the house😄

    Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year, Lynn
