Very friendly service and a lovely lunch menu. All our dietary needs were catered for with no fuss and the food was delicious. Definitely a hidden gem. We will be back!

After a very friendly welcome, we were shown to our table with a great view over the green paddocks to the Tilligerry Peninsula. We enjoyed a glass of local wine with our meal. We were disappointed there was only limited choice for a vegetarian meal.

We enjoy trying and buying new wines, so we were very happy to stop at Wonganella Estate Winery. To find it head to the Brewery, but instead of turning into the car parks, drive up the rod that goes beside the brewing sheds, up the hill through the vineyards. At the top you will find Wonganella Estate, with beautiful views... More

The location is great and the staff friendly however they were totally overwhelmed when it came to our lunch orders, they lost or discarded the names of who ordered what then it took nearly 2 hours for any of us to get our meal..

After our original venue burnt down a week before our wedding Wonganella opened up their doors to us allowing us to hold our special day at their amazing venue. After my initial panic attack I drove up to see how this was all going to unfold. Much to my surprise I instantly fell in love with the venue, views, wines... More

Tasted some great wines, and had a delicious lunch on the veranda on the way back from a girl's weekend away at Shoal Bay. Greg and all the staff were wonderful and welcoming, and the views across the vines and valley to the lake are fabulous. We'll definitely be back.
