OUR restaurant decking has had a revamp.

We brought in 40 cubic metres of sand and two trucks of concrete to construct the new and improved alfresco area. New balustrades and lights finished the job.

Our talented renovators finished the whole job without destroying the grapevines, which we suspended above the decking with rope and cables.

We’ve also upgraded the disabled access ramp onto the new alfresco, completing a fresh and accessible space that is sure to see plenty of fun and entertainment in 2017.

THE Mandalay Road Wines degustation on November 12 was a huge success.

41 people attended the six course dinner, which became a very special occasion when a couple staying at the venue attended the dinner right after becoming engaged. Mandalay marked the occasion with a congratulations speech and the staff decorated their table with flowers.

Guests at the dinner got to know their Mandalay Wines hosts over the course of the night, as they circulated amongst the tables, topping up glasses and engaging in conversation.

Here are some photos of the amazing food. We were so impressed with Mandalay’s Chardonnay and Durif, we now stock them in the bar.Barramundi with parsnip mash orange glaze and carrot crispsMarron 2Flourless orange and almond lamington toasted coconut white chocolate sauce
