Visited after checking out great reviews and went on a Friday night. Not too busy but had a nice table. The bruschetta was nice. I had the seafood fettuccine which was really nice but for $36 it was only the size of an entrée. My wife had the pork belly which was also nice. Good wine list and good service... More

One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Service was friendly, knowledgeable & well done. Drinks menu was good as was the food. The pastas were cooked to perfection. Delicious dessert to cap off a very enjoyable & delicious dinner

In a large group of around 20 they did not cope well. The menu was substantially reduced from the time we booked until the time of our celebration. Staff were nice, but a couple of them seemed to be going in circles. Drinks put in front of 'anyone' without confirming who they really belong to. Food took a long time... More

Went for a romantic dinner upstairs at the Tapas Restaurant. The waitress was great, on her own and very busy. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. Highly recommend the Tapas Platter. Will return when next in Echuca.

Hi Lisa, Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your evening at our wine and tapas bar. Our normal trading hours do not include Thursday and Monday evenings but we decide to extend them over the Christmas period to include both these days. Being unsure of how busy it was going to be we only rostered one waitress (Tess) on and... More

This place is supposed to be an Italian restaurant but doesn't feel like one. The wait staff are lovely but don't really seem to have a clue what's going on. We came in at 9 for dessert after a disappointing meal elsewhere. I got the chocolate panacotta and my friend got the tiramisu and chocolate ice cream for my son.... More

We went to Ceres twice whilst in Echuca. On both occasions the food was of a high quality coupled with good service. On the second occasion we sat upstairs on the balcony which added to to the night's enjoyment. This restaurant is recommended

Terrific creative light meals enjoyed here with spot on wine recommendations from the attentive wait staff. Nice ambience, music level low so good for conversation . A bit pricey but would still recommend.

Well located with easy parking, friendly and personal service, prompt attention, small but inclusive menu with interesting dishes, spacious table plan with space & privacy between. Good food at reasonable prices and a comprehensive drinks list. Also has a choice of private function areas both indoor/ outdoor ideal for summer evenings
