As implied by the name, this restaurant seems to focus on its extensive wine collection and knowledgeable staff. Of note is a German sommelier who was able to suggest excellent wine from both Europe and local vineyards, matched with the chosen dishes. Food seems to be presented as a complement to the wine and the menu is short, but each... More

We enjoyed the set 9-course degustation menu on New Year's Eve, and the place was full. Starting with champagne on arrival, there was then a small glass of wine with each course, selected by the owner, and by and large they worked perfectly. We did have a slight query over the wine that came with the "oysters two ways", as... More

A cool and classy Melbourne-style wine bar with an enormous range of local and exotic bottles, along with an extremely well-informed and helpful German sommeliere. Extremely limited but well-presented menu.

Been back here a number of times. It isn't cheap, but you come here for a nice night, with a good wine selection and good food. The service is excellent and unobtrusive. My partner knows LOTS about wines, and he can actually sit back and let someone else pick the wine matches and expect them to work. Overall I have... More

The menu is really simple in terms of the range, but beautifully executed. The service is warm friendly and unobtrusive providing wonderful support for the conversations. Wine list is extensive and varied and the wine knowledge is superb. I'd guess the wine is the raison d'etre and that would be even if I didn't know the business name and that... More

I was a bit unsure of the new menu at the Border Wine Room, but then I thought, David Sutherland has a good track record with matching food and wine, he has been our local expert for many years, so I went on this new journey, The food was faultless, so fresh and light, the wines as ever, surprising and...

Recently went to dinner midweek with friends. Waited quite a while for our dinner, and then 2 of our group had to send their meal back as it was cold. We had already put our vege's on the plate, but didn't get them back when the meal was brought out again. Dessert was yummy, and the wine list is expansive.... More

This was probably our fifth or sixth visit to Albury over the same number of years. Always tasty. This time service was so so and a little slow. I thought the food was almost as good as our last visit but my spouse was a bit disappointed. The owner is very friendly but the wait staff this time didn't have... More
