what the judges said in 2018

The Larder@Mantra Lorne is part of a stylish resort with accommodation and many luxurious facilities.  Overlooking the rolling lawns of the heritage-listed Erskine House The Larder offers a refined yet hearty menu of rustic Italian cuisine freshly prepared from locally sourced produce from the Otway ranges and surrounding districts.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner The Larder offers an inviting environment to enjoy meals with friends and family. In summer the restaurant is bright and airy, and in winter there’s an open fireplace to add to the warm atmosphere.

Experience the tastes of Italy with antipasti boards of cured meats, marinated grilled vegetables, pesto bocconcini or Chianti veal ossobucco. Or indulge in a selection of creamy pastas with delectable ingredients including mussels and calamari, or fresh egg rigatoni with Barolo braised beef ragú and shaved Grana Padano. Mains include a choice of pork cotoletta, free range chicken, and steaks.

The Larder also provides an extensive buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner menu.
