Tantalise your taste buds

Known for spectacular breakfasts, delicious Italian-inspired dinners and local wine, beer and cocktails, Artezen has been a mainstay in the heart of Dunsborough for almost 20 years.

Ryan and Caroline Haigh took over the business six and a half years ago to bring locals a great place to get together with friends and family and have a top dining experience.

"Being owner-operated means we are constantly striving to give the best, friendliest and most professional service," Caroline said.

"Ryan has worked in several high-class restaurants both in Australia and overseas, including Sydney, Rome, London and Dublin and knows what good food should look and taste like."

"A particular hit has been our Twenty's Plenty special (Thursday night dinner special; examples include lamb ragu with ricotta gnocchi, Thai yellow fish curry and prosciutto wrapped chicken roulade, all $20 including a glass of wine or tap beer)."

Artezen is also known for its delicious Espresso Martinis (available from 7am), salmon rosti breakfast and housemade lemon drizzle cake.

The business is open for breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake seven days a week from 7am and dinner and drinks Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights from 5pm.

"We pride ourselves on the quality of our coffee and food and have highly trained and experienced baristas and chefs to ensure quality and consistency," Ryan said.

"We only hire staff who are friendly, confident and professional, including a great team of juniors and apprentices many of whom go on to make a career in hospitality."

Ryan and Caroline say their favourite part of owning a local business is getting to know their regular customers, who are both locals and regular visitors from Perth and elsewhere, learning their stories and sharing their experiences.

"We have a reputation for great food and service as evidenced by our feedback and reviews on Facebook and Trip Advisor," Ryan said.

Artezen supports and sponsors many local clubs and groups such as the Dunsborough Cricket Club.

"We have been proud to be involved in recent fundraising events for Motor Neuron Disease, the RSPCA, Guillain Barre Syndrome and Alzheimers Australia," Ryan said.
