Built at the homestead Woodvale property in 1928, the building which houses the House of Conti restaurant is the original family home Paul once shared with his Sicilian-migrant parents and seven siblings. Back then, the road was merely a dirt track and the community was small, but close-knit. Decades later, it became the family home for Paul, his wife Anne, and two children until they moved to newer premises on the property.
The old home was renovated and transformed into a fine dining restaurant in 1982 and refurbished again in the late 90s to its current state. Retaining the traditional features of the home, the restaurant is particularly renowned for its warm elegance and romantic atmosphere with highly adorned ceilings, original antique fixtures and richly polished jarrah floor boards.
Trading as House of Conti restaurant and under the independent management and lease-holding of head chef, John Mountain along with his catering team, the venue has remained a regular haunt for local clientele, and has loyally provided the ideal setting for intimate wedding celebrations, anniversaries, birthdays and business luncheons, and seats up to 50-70 people comfortably. The main dining area is accompanied by two smaller rooms which are commonly requested by couples or small groups preferring extra privacy.
John’s eclectic menu is described as “modern European brasserie” and is reinvented (along with popular core staples) regularly to show-case the best seasonal produce available at the time.
A cosy entrance lounge is a welcoming touch in the winter months encouraging diners to enjoy pre-dinner drinks in warmth and comfort. A thanks to the spacious layout and high ceilings, the restaurant is a cooling solace in the heat of summer, also due to forgiving stone walls and of course, ducted air-conditioning throughout.
