A variety of restaurants are conveniently located near Spa du Sureau. The closest is the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa’s sister restaurant, Erna’s Elderberry House, which serves robust prix-fixe five-course feasts during the evening (and a delightful brunch on Sundays) under the direction of chef Gunnar Thompson, whose farm-to-table New American cuisine is made with ingredients sourced from the Yosemite area and cultivated by local independent farmers.
Beyond the gates of The Estate by the Elderberries is the town of Oakhurst, where Pete’s Place, a local’s favorite serving low-key breakfasts and lunches, is the place to go for tasty gyros and not-so-healthy Greek specialties great for filling up after a morning spent hiking in Yosemite National Park, which is only about a 20-mile drive from the the spa.
A little further down the road towards Yosemite you’ll find the Bass Lake recreation area and Ducey’s on the Lake which, as you may have guessed from the name, is located on the waterfront and offers a solid selection of steaks, seafood and pastas. Try to grab a table by the windows, where you’ll get to enjoy the restaurant’s real specialty: enchanting views of the lake and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains.
We are certainly proud to have the highly awarded Erna’s Elderberry House Restaurant as part of our Estate at the Elderberries. Guests will enjoy an extraordinary dining experience and a feast for their taste buds.
The restaurant scene in Oakhurst offers some family-style eateries (including Mexican, Italian, and Asian cuisine), as well as numerous fast food restaurants. A few miles north of Oakhurst, the Narrow Gauge Restaurant offers American-style cuisine with alpine influences in a cozy, chalet-like atmosphere.
