A delicious platter in a beautiful setting

This is a gorgeous setting with great food and excellent wine. Ask for a table outside on a sunny day.

Dropped in here for a tasting a quick lunch, was not disappointed. Food was great and wine to match was also a winner. The kids menu was what really got us, it was a platter with everything that you would expect kids to eat but with a healthy and thoughtful side. Chicken tenders, with a sultana box, some cheese, carrot... More

We ate here whilst on a vineyard tour. We ordered a platter to share (basically breads and cheeses). The restaurant was at less than half capacity. After 25 min of waiting, we asked politely where the food was. The manageress "told" us that the kitchen was at full capacity and we "had to wait". If the children hadn't have been... More

We had a large group (14) of us booked for a long lunch for 1 pm. Due to baggage issues at the airport we were about 15 min late. We had to ask for water for the table. Ordering wine took time and food as well. I'm really glad a few of us ordered a bread/dips platter as our lunch... More

We had a great shared platter consisting of a selection of cheeses, meats, fruit, spreads and breads on the front lawn sitting in the bean bags. This is a very relaxing way to spend a sunny day with friends. The staff we friendly, service was quick and the food was fresh and full of flavour. The staff in the wine... More

Large winery, where we had a tasting straddling lunch in the restaurant, beautiful salmon salad well presented. The wines are at the premium end of the market well presented by the enthusiastic manager and his friendly team

This used to be our favourite winery but it's funny how one little experience can ruin it. We just love the food and wine but will be giving it a brake for a while. The waitstaff seemed over it for the day and sat us at a table we really didn't want to sit at so we asked if we... More

We didn't have a great day weather-wise for our visit to Wither Hills, but that wasn't the only thing that was disappointing. The service and food was just average and we wouldn't recommend it as a winery stop. We did the wine tasting, which was awkward because the attendant seemed distracted and I.D.'ed us even though we are 24 years... More
