A group of us went here for lunch on a hens wine tour, there were 27 of us and we arrival a little late due to the long drive which we met with frustrated staff (which was fair). We waited 30 minutes for our share entree plates which were okay. There were share plates of fries, a tomato, olive, fetta... More

We headed out to Houghtons Winery for the 180th birthday picnic. We pre ordered picnic hampers from the Cafe and we're thrilled to have them ready as soon as we arrived. The picnic hampers were delicious and there was ample food. The setting is perfect for families where the kids big and small have loads of space to run around.... More

My wife went there for a few sips of red and pink wine under bright blue sky, very relaxing, green and freshly​ ambience. The entree dishes were nice and tasty. The main dishes were fine but would prefer them be more tasty, spicy(as described in the menu), and a bit more generous in the serve size. This beautiful cafe- winery... More

We are not easily impressed, however the beautiful setting, warm welcoming and engaging staff prior to ordering left a strong impression. Food was amazing, fresh vibrant and tasty dishes! Often you will see a long description on a menu item but not taste all the elements described however the Houghtons menu delightfully lived up to the talk so to speak.... More

My Husband and I went to Haughton's for lunch yesterday to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary with Friends, and were really looking forward to our lunch, but sadly we were served an extremely awful meal and given poor service in to the bargain. The Pork dish that two of us ordered was extremely tough but worse still was very undercooked and... More

Lovely seeing all the vines so green & the Swan River bursting its banks. The grounds at Houghtons are very well kept & the surroundings are very pleasant. We purchased a scoopon voucher & had a wine each, a shared entree & main course each which was sufficient. It was a good meal, typical of winery cafe style eating, not... More

A casual bistro with a backdrop of vineyards & beautifully maintained lawns. Fine food & wine with helpful & friendly staff. A small menu with a good range of choices. Four of us dined with a voucher which included a glass of wine each and made for good value.

My friends and I have been coming here for years. Over that time the menu has evolved but the latest is definitely best. While I'm not a huge fan of the wines, the cafe to us is always a 'sure thing'! Hot Sunday, not too busy, acoustic guitarist playing under a shady tree and misters keeping us fresh and cool... More

Wonderful setting and so peaceful. Although the cafe menu is not that extensive the food is first class and goes down with a nice bottle of Houghtons SSB from the cellar door.

I was there with a group of 4, we enjoyed the tapas menu. Every mouthful was amazing. We had the beef dish which melted in your mouth. The whiting, the cuttlefish, the sliders, the Mexican cheese dish, all were an absolute delight. We were quite full at that point but pushed through and were glad we did we had the... More
