The Manjimup truffle season opens on the first day of Winter making it the perfect time to showcase this special and much-loved ingredient in the upcoming menu.
The restaurant has recently seen an exciting restyling of the décor at Aravina Estate. In a tribute to the history of the region and the surfing culture in Yallingup, visitors can now view the Aravina surfboard collection as well as beach and surfing memorabilia from great surfing icons of Margaret River, Yallingup, Malibu and Hawaii.
Taj Burrow, local surf legend and long time supporter of Aravina, visited the estate to check out the collection and changes. Seen above catching up with Head Chef Ben Day and Chief Winemaker Ryan Aggiss, Taj gave the refit an official stamp of approval and thumbs up after a surf down at the local break earlier in the day.
The team at Surfing WA are also very enthusiastic about the tribute to the Yallingup Surf culture, especially with Aravina’s close ties with the Margaret River Surf Pro each year. In fact, it was Aravina where Taj chose to celebrate his retirement from the professional circuit at last year's Surf Pro.
The refit ties in closely with the exciting restaurant relaunch. The onset of Autumn sees a shift from the formal set menu approach that has been synonymous with Aravina's restaurant, to a more relaxed dining experience.The new and innovative dining choices encompasses Ben’s Day’s beautiful new menu with a wider range of menu options and extensive drinks list including champagne cocktails, beers and ciders and premium award winning Aravina museum stock wines to celebrate the Estate’s 30th anniversary this year.
Aravina Estate is urging customers to make lunch reservations well in advance after experiencing unprecedented bookings for the Summer holiday period.
