Taste the difference of organic food and wine in a beautiful setting high in the Barrington Tops
The food at the Tops Organic Restaurant is delicious, unpretentious and served in a hospitable, relaxed atmosphere.
From garden to table...
The organic garden produces some of the food for the organic restaurant. At the Tops we are happy to share our knowledge of organic farming principles and we enjoy seeing the fruits of our labour being enjoyed in the restaurant.
With the "roots" of the organic garden in place, we are working towards being more self-sufficient and supplying the restaurant with abundant nutrient-rich organic fruits and vegetables in the future.
Our team of Chefs, love creating tasty meals to be enjoyed by the in-house guests. they create the fresh table d'hôte menu which is on offer in the evening. The evening meal is based on what has growing in the garden, what is in season, and what is local. It is important to cook using pure essential ingredients such as Celtic sea salt and Rosnay’s certified organic extra virgin olive oil.
For children, there are no chicken nuggets on offer, but real food. Our chefs are happy to accommodate varying tastes, especially those of children.
Organically-grown is sometimes used loosely, but not here. We serve certified organic lamb, beef and chicken. The seasonal fruit and vegetables are also certified organic. Being aware of the "carbon miles" in bringing food to the table, we also source some locally grown produce which may not be certified but grown organically. Seafood that is served in the restaurant is not farmed, but wild caught.
We serve a hearty organic breakfast starting with our own oven roasted muesli or bircher muesli, organic fruits, fruit loaf and biodynamic yoghurt. This is followed by a hot breakfast including farm eggs, sausages, freshly made tomato sauce and other seasonal accompaniments.
You may spoil yourself on a leisurely organic breakfast for $25 with bottomless cups of organic teas and coffee. A fresh menu is offered each evening with a choice of entrees, mains and desserts. You can enjoy a 2 course dinner for $50 or a 3 course dinner for $60. Children under 10 years are half price, smaller meal also available. Please book in advance for breakfast and dinner.
Our Chefs find it a pleasure to cook for vegan and vegetarian guests.
If you are staying in one of our self contained cottages, your food supplies can be purchased in Gloucester (35 min by car). The local supermarkets Woolworths and FoodWorks have organic produce including milk and some organic fruit and vegetables.
