Granite Belt + Shiraz Restaurant Receive More Accolades

When most of us take break, we switch off and do nothing! But not the ultra-professional, Des Houghton, of the Courier Mail.

We caught up with Des, when he was holidaying with family, and his mind couldn't stop thinking about work. And for that we are very grateful; because the result is a fabulous review in last week's Qweekend magazine.

When describing Ballandean in the Granite Belt, Des exclaims, "I can't keep away from the place. It is a meandering food and wine trail set among vineyards, orchards, streams and weird prehistoric rock formations. It's Queensland's very own Tuscany or Alsace."

During his stay Des paid a visit to Shiraz Restaurant + Wine Bar; a place he believes is worth a visit for its wonderful wine list alone. But the food also caught his attention!

"We devoured quality plates of food from a disciplined kitchen that knew exactly what it was doing."

Thanks Des. Next time you visit we promise we won't make you work. But then again, is enjoying wonderful food and wine actually a job!
