Great wine, convivial setting, food just ok

nothing other than a very pleasant meal with an excellent bottle of Shiraz on the recommendation of the very helpful and knowledgeable waitress. Entrees were interesting, varied and good being smaller tapas size. Mains looked great on the menu but just a little disappointing which might have been... read more

We stumbled upon this place on our first night staying in Albury and the wine and service was so good that the following night we cancelled our booking at another restaurant and booked a table in the border wine room. On the second night we were welcomed once again with open arms and had the most wonderful food experience that... More

When you couple friendly and knowledgeable front of house people with food that is truly delightful, the outcome can only be a good thing. Do yourself a favour and visit the Border Wine Room. We found that Kate (owner) has created the sort of experience that people crave when a night out with a share platter at yet another Tapas... More

Thank you Kate and your team for an amazing dining experience by the fire on Saturday night. This is not just going out for dinner, this is all about the dining experience and they excel at that. From the little "shot" of soup (to be sipped not consumed like a shot); the wonderful flavoursome bread rolls; incredibly tasty entrées; and... More

This was our second visit en route to Sydney and we will organise our travel in future so we can continue to enjoy this restaurant. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Each dish we had was delicious and beautifully presented, including the chef's amuse bouche, and we loved the matched wine selections. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Border... More

We had dinner tonight and were so impressed with every aspect of the experience. From the knowledgable, intelligent and passionate service to the superb food and wine. Open windows overlooking rooftops on a balmy night made it perfect

Went there for dinner last night and was blown away. From the entree of fresh figs wrapped in prosciutto and a blue cheese foam, my taste buds were in heaven. Had seared tuna loin (wasn't aware tunas had loins), to the house-smoked duck breast which the aroma was as delicious as the meal itself. The duck was served with Pedro... More

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.
