Best restaurant in Orange

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

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

We had dinner there last week. Great location. Menu was excellent and our meals were very nice and complimented by the Borrodell wines. Excellent service. Great experience and could hold its own in a major city due the quality of food.

Travelling around Australia with my best friend, we stumbled upon this vineyard restaurant after hearing all sorts of wonderful recommendations from locals. I were shown to a lovely table by the professional waitress which had an awesome view of the vines and horizon in the distance. The atmosphere was beautiful, cool music, cool contemporary artworks on the walls. My 3... More

Sisters Rock is the whole experience. The friendly staff, the local produce lovingly prepared and beautifully presented washed down with Borrodell wines. We spend Mother's Day at Sisters Rock every year and it exceeds expectations every time. We love the chat with owner Borry, perched on top of the hill looking out over the multi hued orchards and vines towards... More

Great view, great wine selection and food excellent. OK its not Lolli Redini in Orange (its not trying to be) - much better views - using the wines mostly from the Borrodell Vineyard right beside it. The service was excellent - great place to have lunch on a Sunday .. and a few drinks afterwards!
