Sister's Rock Restaurant is a family-run restaurant, located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, overlooking the Pinot Noir block. Enjoy the food & wine in a venue with glorious views over the slopes of the Towac Valley to Orange in the distance. Our philosophy of food has developed around a love of growing produce on the property and serving it straight to the plate, a true reflection of the seasons. We are a heritage apple and plum orchard, vineyard, grow cider apples for our own traditional cider and black Perigord truffles. All meals are accompanied by Borrodell cool-climate, award-winning wines. The menu changes regularly according to seasonal availability. Please phone to discuss the current menu.

I must have been at a different restaurant to most of these reviewers. The service was good and the scenery was spectacular, but the food was average at best. The entrees were piping hot, but the mains were lukewarm. We had the venison which was tender but the sauce was sickly sweet, the duck was also in a sweet passionfruit... More

We had an amazing dinner here and it was just perfect. The food was fantastic and the service was great. I am very much looking forward to going back! I'm disappointed I can't give Sister's Rock a higher rating than 5/5

Thank you to the wonderful owners of Borrodell Vineyard! We had simply the best time at the gumboot ball! The night was faultless. So much food... and wine of cause! A great live band and lots of dancing! Loved the truffle hunt as well. Touched, smelt and ate my first truffle. I can't wait go back to this wonderful event... More

A sunday morning truffle hunt followed by eating the fresh truffles?!! What could be a better way to spend a sunny crisp winter's day? I don't know, and neither could my wife.

It was very busy as on Sundays they go truffle hunting as well as school holidays so it was very busy from noon until four.

We had a fantastic lunch with a friend on the verandah overlooking the valley at Sister's Rock Restaurant and as it had been a while since I'd been there, it was wonderful to know that things had not changed! The service was brilliant. The food and wine were very very good, and the location - ahhhhhh. To have so many... More

We were a group of 8 who were fitted in at short notice for a lazy Friday lunch. The weather had cleared and we were greeted a wonderful view from our table. Great food, great service and great local wines. We'll be back sometime and recommend that if you go to Orange, go to Sister' Rock. Thanks Gaye and all... More

After a few months of the usual craziness living in Sydney, my wife and I decided to take a few days out to stay at Borrodell Winery in Orange. Sister's Rock is the restaurant attached to the winery. The winery has great accommodation as well as the restaurant and is only 10 minutes west of Orange. Borri and Gaye -... More
