Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As locals we thought we would take an overseas visitor to Brandy Creek for lunch as it is in a lovely location with great views and we have been numerous times before. However, it was a huge disappointment such that we won't be rushing back...any time soon! The waitress was friendly in greeting us and sitting us down at our table, however the menu format has changed in that there is no list of tapas to order from, rather a set menu of either 5, 6 or 7 pre-selected tapas all of which had at least one item that we wouldn't order. The other option was their 'signature platters' which were just main meals which we opted for. We all had the grilled barramundi with a spicy prawn paste, potatoes gratin style and some kind of salad. The meal was extremely disappointing in that it was all so rich, and nothing seemed to go together. The really rich potatoes were cheesy, with a rich spicy sauce over the fish. The salad was just simply awful - strong sundried flavour. The fish would have been much better with just some simple plain potatoes and a very simple plain salad. At $43 each, we all left about half of our meal as it was simply inedible. Shame, as it is in such a nice location. We'll now just have to find alternative locations for our visitors in future.More

This winery has beautiful views overlooking the Mt Baw Baw Ranges. Beautifully built Spanish themed restaurant to go with the Spanish food and wine. We were here for the Christmas service and the venue was beautifully decorated. Abundance of food was there in buffet style....Santa visit was great as well as there was live music. Overall a well spent Christmas dayMore

A picturesque location over- looking vines and rolling hills made for a most pleasant group lunch, even on a day of solid rain. Special dietary requirements were carefully considered by both waitress and chef. We chose from the Mains menu with everyone happy with their...selection. We all enjoyed the accompaniments of scalloped potato, almond salad and fresh, warm bread. Staff were helpful and meals came in good time. We had a great afternoon.More

We were so disappointed with our evening here. Taco night food was overpriced and the worst quality meal I’ve had in years. Zero atmosphere and the decor was awful too. Staff were pleasant but everything else was bad, I would struggle to recommend this to...anyone.More

My partner and I recently went to Brandy Creek Winery for lunch, we had not been here for over a year as the food and service on our previous visit were poor to say the least. But we thought we would give them another shot...and to our surprise the food and service were first class , would recommend a visit.More

We had an exquisite dining experience at Brandy Creek Estate last week. The staff's hospitality and warm welcome made it even more enjoyable. The wine tasting activity with our friends was also fantastic, creating memorable moments. We are definitely looking forward to our next visit!

The selected Churrasco Menu was very generous and all 24 guests enjoyed the meal. The venue not only provided opportunity to host the...meal but also to take group photos as well.

What a gorgeous afternoon! Set in lovely surroundings, the restaurant takes full advantage of the views, and the kind and helpful staff couldn't be more helpful. Today, I'd want to thank the Brandy Creek team for making my family's meal special. My father is delighted...since it was a surprise meal. The service, drinks, and food were all excellent.

The experience was very disappointing and not a venue I would take my family to again. The grounds when walking to the restaurant appeared neglected and overgrown not giving a fantastic first impression. Once in the restaurant we were greeted well with smiling staff. Our...waitress was pleasant and helpful. We placed our food order but I had to initiate ordering drinks where I would have expected to be asked - minor point. The food in our opinion was slightly above average and the delay in service was far too long. There were not that many tables or people in there. We ( my wife & I) got out first round of tapas but there was further delay in getting our children their children’s meals. They were hungry and so ended eating our bread and some other items. They eventually arrived and were ample and nice. We got our remaining tapas and finished our meal. We ordered desert and had to wait close on 20 minutes for it to arrive. A portion of ice cream, cheesecake and fudge cake. All would have been ready made. My wife had to speak with the waitress to find out why it was taking so long. The venue charges top dollar for its food and wine yet the food is just above average and the service was poor. A price guide for a family of 2 adults and 2 young children was nearly $300. With only one bottle of wine. As I said before it was disappointing and certainly not value for money. We went on a Saturday for lunch and the venue was by no means busyMore

Brandy Creek Estate served us a delicious lunch. The staff was outstanding, friendly, and efficient. The food was delicious; my wife and I shared the Churrasco Meal, and the wine was the perfect complement. Absolutely fantastic and will definitely come back again.
