Came here for my birthday, such a beautiful setting. Gorgeous puppy greets you, tables all have lovely views. The wine is lovely, howevef the food was just average and quite expensive. Asked for steak medium rare, it came medium to medium well. Hubbys rabbit was full of bones and watching him pick the bones out his mouth was not a... More

Gone downhill - poorly trained, inattentive staff with little knowledge of the food industry. Some good food, some terrible food In the Entertainment book this restaurant is in the gold section. All in all – poorly trained, inattentive staff with little knowledge of the food industry. Some good food, some terrible food. We probably will not be back. This would... More

Our 3 course Sunday lunch was of high quality and cooked as ordered. The bottle of wine we chose suited our mains well. The outlook [incl rolling hills] was great even though it was overcast. Staff were helpful and friendly.

From the minute we walked in, it was a breathtaking experience. Warmly led to our window seats by the waitress. Food was plentiful- hot fresh croissant, fruit platter and bubbles followed by hot brekkie and hot drink. This was part of a wine tasting exp from red balloon. It was all good value for money.Definitely recommend.

We went for dinner on a friday night, it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere, i think it is designed for weddings. No lights outside made it very difficult to get to our car. The food was good and service OK from one over-worked waitress. Obviously better for lunch when you will get a view.

This is my first visit but my parents have been here several times and love it. We had a three course lunch and wine included due to our vouchers. The wine Pinot and... More

A great place for Sunday breakfast, a great view over the Yarra Valley and a fantastic breakfast. A great way to start the day in the Yarra Valley Staff were great in the restaurant and also the staff at the cellar door were great, Nice wines and overall great place so close to Melbourne.

We booked for dinner here for a birthday occassion. As it was evening our travel and dining experience were in the dark, so we couldn't see any scenery of the vineyard itself, not that that was an issue. The restaurant is warm and welcoming, with a nice fire near the reception. We were seated and greeted promptly. It was not... More
