12 of us travelled to Stawell by V/Line on New Years day and as the Diamond House is only a few blocks from the railway station, the Diamond House fitted the bill admirably.
We started off with an expensive Great Western bubbly which was meant to be an aperitif, however 6 bottles later the cellar had run out and by then it was time for dessert.
All the main courses were well presented and were excellent, however the lime cheesecake had not a hint of lime despite the 'lime' flavouring added to the cheesecake.

This isn't a cheap eats, however we were pleased the manager opened especially for us on New Years day, but we spent a considerable sum and made it worthwhile for him.
The downhill walk back to the station was appreciated by several of our group after our long and enjoyable lunch..

Having arrived from The Grampians tired and hungry, we were delighted to find this restaurant. It's crazy exterior opens up to a bar area that's reminiscent of a pub in the UK and the dining room houses a fascinating collection of photographs from Stawell's past. In walks Dave who, with casual aplomb, produces a mouthwatering steak and a delicious fish dish. His cooking is superb and quite simply the best in town. We had a great time chatting to Dave who has lead a colourful life and has a wealth of culinary experiences. Book on popular evenings to avoid disappointment.

I asked David if he would serve a luncheon, as there would be young children in the group. Usually, David caters for an evening meal, but for the right number of people, he said he would do a luncheon. We ordered from the menu. Delicious food as usual, excellent service, of course. Drank a local sparkling wine. We had a wonderful meal. Orders ranged across the menu, some of the younger children had a special meal - suggested by Ben. Steak ( always a winner ), kangaroo, chicken, fish. Some of us even indulged ourselves with dessert ! Many thanks to David and Ben for catering for our lunch.

Not many options in stawell for dinner and thr food os fine.
The waiter, i think his name is Ben is lovely but the manager is hilariously terrible.
Five of us went for dinner, and he was angry and aggressive in the background . Pethaps he could spend less time being narky and a little more time painting the decrepit restaurant.

8 of us arrived late evening and were made very welcome. The food was delicious and portions were big. We all selected different meals from the menu and we were all very satisfied with our choice. Our waiter was great, he was engaging and attentive. There really isn't much else you could ask for.
