One thing i freely admit is that Victorian country towns are by and large, superior to NSW country towns.Just more stylish,more class cafes and in most cases better restaurants . The “Taste” in Rutherglen is one of them. We met friends from Melbourne here when...More

Degustation menu with matching wines is a fantastic bargain and a culinary delight. With a mix of seafood through to quail and beef to the delicate desert, all prepared and presented beautifully. I did not expect to find this quality in a small town, then...More
