We love a good weekend eating and drinking our way around the valley. Have been to the Cellar a few times and it's consistent. The entrees however at nearly $30 each are really over priced for what you get. You are paying top dollar here...More

Had a brilliant evening at Cellar Restaurant. We both had the 8hr cooked Lamb Shoulder which melted in your mouth amd washed down with a terrific Shiraz Voigner. Wait staff were very nice and service fantastic.

This ultra-popular restaurant (especially with locals who love a long lunch here) serves appetising Mediterranean meals in a relaxed, inviting space. It has a great outdoor courtyard, surrounded by wisteria, with tables shaded by large umbrellas and inside there’s a huge open fireplace in the centre of the room, surrounded by crisp, white-clothed tables and indoor gardens. Owner/chef Andy Wright offers a seasonal menu using the best Australian produce with regulars returning for popular á la carte dishes like pan-fried barramundi and eight-hour slow-braised Milly Hill lamb or the signature dish – whole suckling pig roast (48 hours’ notice required).
