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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A truly wonderful dining experience. The accompanying wines were both affordable and delicious. The duck leg main and carrot and almond torte were beautifully prepared.

My friend and I decided to order the gourmet hamper so we could eat at our B&B. Neither of us can eat large meals so we thought we would spread it over a few meals. The food was in a foam box to keep cool....A young man kindly carried it out to the car. The food was fresh, however, the Caesar Salad was stored as individual ingredients, that is, cos lettuce in one container, bacon bits in another, mayonnaise in another which made it difficult to assemble as we did not have a bowl or cutting knife. As I am lactose intolerant and my friend is not, I had asked for the cheese on the side so maybe there was a misunderstanding. Be as it may, we ended up eating the separate ingredients unmixed. The bacon bits were found after we had eaten the other ingredients. The pork pie was very nice (a little salty to my taste) as was the cold platter. A delicious orange almond cake (gluten and dairy-free) was included as well as brownies for lactose-intolerant me. The strawberries were lovely and sweet. It cost $90 for the hamper but I felt the offering was average. The service was very good with them going out of their way in regard to the lactose issue. I just don't think it was very gourmet, especially with the unassembled Caesar salad and I would not order it again.More

We have lunched at this restaurant about five times over the years, it’s the first activity we book when we visit Stanthorpe. It has always been an excellent experience both the dining and the wines are well above average. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable...and are a big part of the overall experience. The ‘hands on’ training that this facility provides the young people of this region is a lesson for other rural parts of this nation.More

We have been here many times. Always the food has been amazing - very generous helpings, delicious and fresh ingredients. The wine menu is fantastic! Prices are reasonable. Would certainly recommend if you're in Stanthorpe.

Dogs are now only welcome in the back courtyard behind the winery. Not a particularly nice spot for what should be an up market experience. Apoarently no one gets seated on the deck/balcony.

Our meals were prepared with passion and our waitress was very attentive and would be an asset to any future employer. My fish was cooked very well, and my husband enjoyed his steak, worth a visit.

We've been to Varias a few times now. If you go at lunchtime you can have the Signature Mains dish, which matches four small courses to accompanying wines. The food and service are very good and they have a good range of wine. The Signature...Mains lunch is brilliant value.More

Didn’t book mid week just turned up towards the end of lunch. We were able to get a table straight away. Menu was very nice and wine pairings were suggested. Everything was lovely only disappoint was we ordered a wine a beer before our meal...but chose the duck snd pumpkin ravioli for our meals with accompanying wines. We never received our wines. Again not a game changer but would have been nice. If going would suggest to bookMore

What a brilliant concept - training young people to be chefs and work in the food and wine industries while providing a high quality dining experience for the general public. Highly recommended on a visit to Stanthorpe and bookings are a must.

We had a Fantastic night. The service was excellent and atmosphere was nice with the wood fire. The room was still cold and could have done with heaters on. We had two entrees and a desert. The food was good and delivered in good time.
