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.

A great cellar door experience today. Reilly’s is in beautiful Mintaro about 15 minutes from Clare. The cellar door is in an old bluestone building. Great cellar door information from our server. Knew the wines and was very personable. Recommend the Cabernets!More

What an amazing experience. Having recently returned from a 3 month European vacation, we were delighted to experience the best Cabernet and the most outstanding food and service since we left Australia. The 2018 Dry Land Cabernet Sav ( Trophy winner ) was exquisite and...complimented by the most amazing Duck confit and beef cheeks . Not to mention the dessert of beetroot cheesecake with pressings gel and pistachio cream. 5 star review. Congratulations Julie and Justin ( Luke Smith Head chef ).More

Called for a tasting - great little cellar door with a fantastic young hostess who made us feel at home. The wines were excellent - the Mataro and Tempranillo were the stand-outs for us and we managed to liberate a few bottles (they pretty much...evaporated that night so we had to come back the next day to replace them!). The cellar door is really nice made all the better by the young lady taking us through the tasting. Highly recommendMore

I am the first to admit I have very tiresome food intolerance's. I attempted to discuss my issues when booking, & was assured, "We will find you something to eat". On the day,this took an embarrassing amount of negotiation. All red meat is delivered to...the restaurant marinated. The duck arrives in saline solution, I have an intolerance to histamine in swordfish. Eventually, a small green salad with strips of halloumi was delivered. My husbands lamb chops were minute, my God daughter's halloumi salad was missing vegetables of any form. The Kale was deep fried, along with some tasty potato cubes, the only item on the menu we could highly recommend. As my dessert was delivered, "Who's is this? Are you going to eat this!? the waitress stated loudly. I wish I didn't order the chocolate mousse, it reassembled and tasted much much like nutella. The chocolate sponge was tough,and seemed to have nutella spread on it too. The cheese boards home made crackers were really crumbly & seemed to be created from puff pastry. Drinks were slow in appearing, or completely forgotten. The merlot is recommended. My husband purchased 2 bottles to take home. There were a total of 6 diners in the restaurant at any one time, and 2 waitresses. Unfortunately I left hungry, as did other members of our group. We won't be returning.More

Because we were staying at Reilly’s Cottages on a Saturday, it was the perfect chance to experience the long lunch on foot. It is a five course set menu with matched wines but they do ask about dietary requirements at the time of booking and...adjust the meal to suit. Our menu will probably not be yours so we should just say we enjoyed everything. The courses were lovely but manageable in size. The wine pairing offered choices for each course, some of them spectacular. The wait staff were very flexible in accommodating one person who only drinks white wine (who probably missed some lovely options). We were able to determine if we wanted a break between courses. Although it was five courses with five wines, we felt well fed but not uncomfortable or even slightly inebriated. Even so, it was great to walk ‘home’. Thank you!More

We shared an enjoyable, relaxed meal and wine tasting in very pleasant surroundings whilst travelling through the Clare Valley. The menu was varied, including vegetarian options which were yummy as well as four or five other main courses. The desserts were great. The entire experience...did not disappoint in any way, the standard was very high. I had difficulty booking via the online reservation site and rang directly. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodated our preferred time. I definitely will return and am happy to recommend.More
