When we went there I had the Cold Pressed Duck and it rocked! The menu does sound a bit strange, but the flavour combinations seem to work. We actually took my Inlaws from Wagga there for dinner and they also enjoyed the experience - my Father inlaw loved the fresh baked sourdough and raved about it for ages! Glad they... More

My family visited Racine on a sunny day for lunch late in Spring. The service was personable and attentive, and the food was delicious with elegant flavours. The meals included a lot of local produce. We opted for three courses, and while the meals look small and fancy, none of us were left hungry. As a vegetarian I felt well... More

We booked this restaurant to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday & are in disbelief at the dining experienced we received. Thank god we never ordered a birthday cake from them. I object to paying for a meal that is served on cold plates, & where the purees & foam are served cold from the fridge & your guests leave hungry.... More

The ordering system (everyone had to choose the same amount of courses) did not suit our group of 8 well, with some having bigger appetites than others. The courses were beautifully presented but tiny and unsatisfying. Experience summed up by one diner upon leaving: "I'm so hungry I need to go home via McDonalds - but now I can't afford... More

The dining experience was a little bit hit and miss. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. However I think that there were a number of inexperienced staff on as we had a couple of mishaps. We were seated and had ordered and been provided with our wine for about 30 mins before receiving a menu, staff were... More

This was a return visit only this time we had the 7 course degustation. For us it was very hit & miss. Some meals had the shine factor whilst others missed. For example one scallop cooked to perfection, the 2nd one raw! The venison was overcooked & a dessert featuring Saint Agur was served ice cold & hard. One staff... More

We were hoping for a great experience as it was a family occasion. We had family from Canberra and Sydney and we were also seated by the door. There was no heating at all and quite cold. We ordered a substantial birthday cake prior and so expecting this to be our dessert but were told on ordering that we must... More

I have been to Racine a few times now, and whenever I leave I always feel the need to tell everyone and anyone how amazing my experience was there. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly, and are more than happy to answer any questions about the food, the wine, the cooking processes or the origin (most of the... More

We love Orange so much we decided to get married there and chose Racine because we love good food and wine (all the wines are sourced from local wineries, so yes a little more expensive but worth every drop!). We weren't disappointed at all! Everyone commented how great the venue was, commenting especially on the food and wine and how... More

This is my first bad review. If you want really tiny portions and like paying top dollar then Racine is for you. The food was delicious but we had 3 courses and I was hungry when we had finished. The taste was quite yummy, but they are stingy, a botle of wine was $20 dearer than a better restruant in... More
