Really loved this place and were doing our regular wine tasting rounds in that area and enjoyed this boutique winery. Overall great ambiance and they have a great menu if you wanted to stay for lunch or dinner. Finally we picked two bottles and will definitely stop for a fine sit down dinner or lunch.

We booked in for my 40th birthday and loved sitting looking out over the vineyard taking in the ambience of this wonderful restaurant. All of our 8 course degustation meals were faultless flavoursome beautiful creations. Too pretty to eat. The waiting staff were attentive and polished. Matching wines were delivered by a passionate unpretentious sommelier. He really knows his stuff.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by local winemakers and it is indeed very good. A light and airy dining room where the tables are nicely spaced. An almost bucolic view from the windows, a vineyard with a small flock of sheep meandering through, and a wonderful old machinery shed that looks like it is barely staying upright. We were... More

We felt the quality of the service and food had slipped dramatically since the last visit. I had been telling visitors that this was THE place to go on the Peninsula, but won't be doing that in future. Tuna entree was incredibly bland, main course duck breast was grey and overcooked, kangaroo main was basically meat, vegetables and gravy artistically... More

Almost enjoyed the 8 course degustation with matching local wines. I say almost as I couldn't finish the last two courses! Food was enjoyable although the seafood courses were the standout. The quail was unfortunately overcooked and a little chewy and was the only thing I pointed out as I was really looking forward to that one. The cooking technique... More

I've lived on the Peninsula for years and didn't realise what a gem was tucked away in Red Hill. My husband and I met Martin at a wine and beer event at Vue de Monde earlier this year, and were sure that such a craftsman would produce food outstanding enough to match his wines. We weren't disappointed. We went this... More

Really lovely tasting room and I loved the wines at TMBT. Service was great and the food served looked fabulous. They sell WITS which stands for Wine In Tubes, just 100mls in each test tube and you can buy a sampler of 4 WITS which makes a great gift.

We went for our two year anniversary and were not disappointed. We had the 8 course degustation and everything was cooked to perfection. They even made special dishes for my pregnant wife. The staff were on top of everything. The only issue with the food was that the dishes at the end were not as tasty; a little bland even...... More

Popped in for a wine tasting with my partner in the weekend and the whole experience was just beautiful. You're staff are so welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful which really added to how much we enjoyed our quick visit. We didn't eat there but after seeing some of the meals come out we wish we had of and will definitely be... More
