We had the pleasure of visiting Mount Tambourine on the way back to Brisbane and decided to have lunch at Mason Wines Eden Restaurant. As it was Australia Day and a little bit late for the lunch crowd we were spoiled to have the semi-outdoor dining area all to ourselves. The cool breeze and tranquility of the area provides a beautiful foundation for a nice meal.

We ordered our food and then went up to the bar for a wine tasting. The staff were very knowledgeable and offered pairing tips for our lunch. The food was very tasty and well presented. Whether it was the lamb special (incredibly tender) or the chicken wings (2 ways) or the Caesar salad, we were all happy.

And in our tradition of drinking wine we had to finish off with some cheese. The 3 cheeses, fruit, pickled veg and crackers (see photo) were the perfect conclusion to a lazy lunch on the mountain. I look forward to visiting again and in the meantime we will have to enjoy the great value case of wine we purchased on the way out.
