A great little restaurant with lots of gluten free options. Delicious food and friendly staff. Great wine from the adjoining winery. Very worth the visit.

A lovely café with friendly staff. Our group had the delicious poachers platter, rib eye steak and garlic prawns and everyone enjoyed their meal and drinks. We did not find it overpriced at all, quite on par with any café serving this type of meal....More

We had a lovely time at the Marron Cafe and adjacent marron farm and Two Wheelers Cellar door. We arrived a bit before 11am and the lovely guide/host made us feel very welcome and took time to patiently explain the ins and outs of marron...More

Having read (some) rave reviews, at first sight the place looks fairly disappointing - a big barn in the middle of dry paddocks. Inside it's also fairly basic. But I went there for the seafood platter and wasn't disappointed. It's a bit expensive by mainland...More

A Unique 3 in 1 experience - Not to be missed by locals or visitors! Come in and sample some of our well-known Two Wheeler Creek wines, whilst having a look around our Marron tanks.
