"The urbane ground-floor lounge is the first thing you'll notice about the new-look Vasse Felix. Upstairs in the restaurant, sleek furnishings and a hip, Scandi-leaning atmosphere form a fitting setting for Aaron Carr's equally progressive cooking. Strips of WA abalone and a boned chicken wing with Sichuan-spiced cabbage and chicken broth embodies everything that's great about Carr's think-global-cook-local approach. He certainly knows his way around a marron, teaming the sweet crustacean with dried slippery jacks and Sherry vinegar to dashing effect. Main courses such as pork shoulder wilh autumn vegies (Jerusalem artichoke, pureed seaweed. spring onions fried roots and all) stick closer to the meat-and-three-veg blueprint. Service mightn't be as reliable as it once was. but desserts have never felt more focused. If caramel and mulberry ice-cream hidden under a custard igloo doesn't make you smile. powerhouse estate wines should do the trick." - Gourmet Traveller - Top 100 Restaurants 2015

"The finalists in this year's award all came from the Margaret River region. But it was Aaron Carr's food at Vasse Felix that put the winery's dining room a hair's breadth ahead of its competitors Leeuwin Estate and Cape Lodge. Cooking this technically proficient shouldn't be so much fun. Out front, one of the best service teams in regional WA works the room with aplomb and professionalism." - The West Australian Good Food Guide, 2012
