The Larder, Lorne

Positioned onsite at Mantra Lorne, The Larder serves up an indulgent menu to satisfy all of your dining needs.

Overlooking the rolling lawns of the heritage-listed Erskine House, The Larder offers a refined yet warm and hearty menu of rustic Italian cuisine. Comprised of locally sourced produce from the Otway ranges and surrounding districts, you’ll experience freshly prepared meals from the finest ingredients.

Open for breakfast and dinner, The Larder offers an inviting environment to enjoy a meal with family and friends. In the summer the restaurant is bright and airy, and in the winter the fireplace makes for a cosy atmosphere.

Experience the taste of Italy with an antipasti board of cured meats, marinated grilled vegetables, pesto bocconcini or Chianti veal ossobucco.

Indulge in a selection of creamy pastas with delectable ingredients including mussels and calamari, or fresh egg rigatoni with Barolo braised beef ragú and shaved Grana Padano. Mains include a choice of pork cotoletta, free range chicken, and steaks.
