Worth the Drive
Once a showroom for Austin cars, Austin House is now home to a fine dining restaurant. Tucked away on Boonah's High Street, the Austin House Restaurant is a feast for the senses.

The food is sensational, the restaurant is inviting and the atmosphere is divine. The Austin House Restaurant is definitely worth the drive from Brisbane. With its rich blue and stone walls, timber tables and mood lighting, the atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. A large print of an Austin hangs on the back wall, reminiscent of the building's heritage.



Jazz music played softly as the duck spring rolls with a bright Asian salad arrived. The spring rolls were fresh and bursting with flavour and cost $15.50. Other starters include homemade bread for $11, goats cheese and spinach ravioli for $15.50, or scallops with bacon, corn, pesto and garlic crumb, for also $15.50.

The menu is thoughtfully prepared and serving sizes are large. The meals are colourful and fresh. The lamb was superb. Succulent and bursting with flavour, it was well worth the $31. Served with smoked eggplant, beetroot, peas, polenta, yoghurt and pesto, this gluten-free meal was amazing.



The pork belly served with pumpkin puree, fennel, cabbage, almond beans and carrots and the salmon with fennel, cucumber and broccolini were thoroughly enjoyed by my dinner guests.





Other options include gluten-free chicken, wontons and beef. Prices range from $25.50 to $31.



Ensure you save room for dessert. They are sensational! The coconut Panna Cotta with its pickled green mango, mango sorbet and macadamia is a refreshing option, perfect for summer while the salted caramel cold set cheesecake with Chantilly cream, popcorn and caramel sauce was smooth and rich. Other options include deep-fried apple pie and a chocolate brownie. Desserts range from $15 to $17.
