Conlan's Wine Store
Wake up Port Fairy foodies, Conlon’s wine store has put itself on the map and you are bound to be impressed the moment you lay eyes on it. Taking over a derelict shop they have renovated this space to create a stylish wine bar and restaurant. This place oozes elegance and flair, although why would one be surprised, Kate and Matt are call “old hands at this now”. Multi award-winning chef and restaurateur Matt Dempsey and wife Kate already have 2 other very highly regarded restaurants; Gladioli in Inverleigh, that they have recently rebranded to Inverleigh Cellar and Kitchen and Tulip in Geelong.
Priding themselves on using seasonal produce and wine to match, the menu is creative, with great specials of the day. I personally love the various sized meals on offer including to start, small dishes and large dishes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting with impeccable service. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you hear about their up and coming classes in cooking, wine and beer tasting.
