Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery – Margaret River, Western Australia

Advertisements

Spotted this place on Google maps and I can’t believe I have not tried this place before from all my previous visits to WA! This place is a little far out from Margaret River town area but the drive is definitely worth it! I was so surprise to see they have such awesome views of the vineyard, pond and greenery, just sets you in the mood for good food and drinks! Check out the many pictures I took.

The resident dog of Cheeky Monkey will come and greet you when you park your car at the back. Very friendly dog and loves a good pat! Forgot her name though… ;P Think it’s Louise?

Pretty good King Prawn Tacos for AUD$12.50.
The Gorilla Pizza for AUD$23. Basically it’s vegetarian pizza with mushroom and sun dried tomatoes. Very nice.

As I was driving out, I took a snap shot of the views and didn’t realise there was a rainbow until I was back in my hotel!

Rating: 5/5. Full marks for everything!

Taste: Really very good. The wings are not seasoned through though, but the blue cheese mayo sauce (I think) it comes with offsets the taste.

Portion: Above average.

Service: Very good. The staff came out to make sure we enjoyed our food.

Ambience: Need I say more?

Price: Including the drinks it’s around AUD$100.

RTE (Return To Eat): Yeah yeah yeah!!!

Cottage Cafe @ The Berry Farm – Margaret River, Western Australia

Was here in 1995 and 2008 and this time I finally am writing about this place. Reason because I haven’t started this blog back then. ;P. This place changed a lot since and a lot more well laid out and more spacious. Few things didn’t change though; that is the freshness of the food and the company of the birds. 🙂 This is a must-go location for a nice brunch and buying back in house made relishes, jams, ciders, vinegars, fruit ports, friut wines, etc., for family and friends!

You’ll see this signage outside the farm before entering
