Although the range of menu items is not extensive (e.g. I expected more pasta dishes for example), there is plenty to choose from.

Il Cacciatore Restaurant is located in Pokolbin amongst many wineries. The restaurant service is good and friendly. The food is tasty, plentiful and value for money. They also have a good wine selection and parking directly at the door.

Relaxed but professional approach; restaurant has verandah section overlooking vineyard and pond; pricey but would re-visit; vegetarian options and/or adjustment of menu to suit a plus

Asked the waitress for a wine recommendation between two wines and ordered the one she recommended. The wine we ordered was awful so when we sent it back the waitress told us she didn't like that wine at all. Why did we ask her opinion?
