We had a delightful lunch here a couple of weeks ago. The food (I had the Venison) was excellent as was the wine and there were also superb views. We would happily return. Our only slight irritation was with the staff who were young and willing BUT who had apparently received little training about the wines or food that they... More

We had a friend and wife from Melbourne join us for two courses the food was superb. My friend said the best fish (the risotto ) he'd ever eaten . Go there it's beautiful setting and friendly staff make it worth discovering 🌞

We had risotto. We think the owner took our order, he was genuinely lovely by the way. Unfortunately after thinking we were welcomed into the restaurant we experienced non-service from the young black haired waitress when she literally chucked the plates loudly onto the wooden table at us and said the word "HERE!" just before stroppily walking way back behind...

Hi mrmatt I believe it was me who greeted you and you are correct that I did not notice the manner in which your meals were delivered. Please accept my apologies for this lapse in service and thank you for raising it so I can address the issue moving on. - Gary. More

We had lunch on Friday. We ordered duck breast, the platter, and fish. After an hour, food was on the table. Everyone was very happy with the food. We then waited for 20 minutes for coffee. Even though the service was slow, food was extremely yummy.

Unfortunately it was raining the day we visited, so we didn't get to fully appreciate the view. I had heard the food was good here and tried the seafood chowder & venison. The seafood chowder arrived with a skin on top (like you get when you overheat milk) and was too hot to eat when it arrived at the table....this... More

We enjoyed a light lunch, the Vineyard Platter, consisting of cured meats, cheese, calamari and such along with a sample tasting of four splendid white New Zealand wines, all delivered with excellent service. We overlooked the vineyard that sloped away from the restaurant. This was a nice, relaxing stop & I would return here again. Climb the hill behind the... More

Visited here recently as a group function so cant comment on menu. Winery is located about 5 mins drive from Walkworth probably half way to Snells Beach. Venue is off a small road and up a long drive way. After winding your way upwards you ard rewarded with a charming elevated outlook over the vineyard and across farm land. Venue... More

We called in for lunch with a friend who we had not seen for some time. The menu was a little limited which I can understand it not being during the busy season. We had seafood chowder which was good. This came with two slices of garlic break small pieces and overdone. We shared a bottle of wine. The wine... More

The restaurant hosted a wonderful lunch in a stunning location with a beautiful panorama facing north, for 16 people on my 70th my birthday. Superb food, beautifully served, their own fine wines, and they let us stay on for 3 hours.
