not a place for people on a budget, but for a splurge this is the place to go, overlooking the city lights. Delicious food (expensive!!!!). Service is excellent.

My wife and I were celebrating a special anniversary, and the Magill Estate is a beautiful modern restaurant in a wonderful setting with great views across the vineyard towards the sea. The dinner was a 7-course degustation menu with matched Penfolds icon wines, and this was perfect for the occasion. My wife had special dietary needs and the chefs were... More

To consider visiting this restaurant you should consider 2 aspects -are you interested & appreciate gourmet food with beautiful wine & are you willing to pay for the experience. The degustation menu is innovative & exciting; Zoe the sommelier was excellent -the wines are most likely the best I have had with a meal -all Penfolds -the 2010 Tempranillo, only... More

Michelin Hats deserved indeed, the re-invented Magill Estate dining room is the perfect Gastronomic delight. The food is exquisite, and I put at second in Australia after Attica in Rippon Lea. But the wine list is to die for. When you go for the 20 year old Grange as the starter before moving on to the interesting wines, you know... More

Imagine - seated in a glass fronted restaurant high on a hill just outside the city, overlooking a vineyard that is over 100 years old, across the city to the sea, sipping champagne and watching the sunset. That is how the Magill Estate experience begins. Followed by an amazing 7 course degustation meal with matching wines. Service was impeccable (amazing... More

Went here for a special occasion and decided to have the degustation with the matching wines after much deliberation over the additional cost of the matching wines versus buying a few bottles. In the end we all agreed that the matching wines were a fabulous addition to the dining experience and we even convinced ourselves it was value for money!... More

What an amazing experience we had for dinner. 7 course Degustation menu was absolutely perfect. Its difficult to say which course was the best as they all tasted so good. One of our guests included the matching wines which is definitely worth it if you enjoy fine wines. We were treated to several snacks to start (the favourite had to... More

Was invited for dinner here and was blown away with the service and had a great conversation with Zoe, the Sommelier. Food wise, the chef is a genius and works around the wines. Every course in the set menu is a build up till the end. The bread is so good. Great selections of Penfolds wine to choose from. We... More
