Good service and interesting food.

We enjoyed lunch in this busy restaurant. Wines were priced at cellar door levels which made them very affordable. Food selections were interesting and nicely presented.

Although the food was lovely it is on the pricey side for what it is. Personally felt the restaurant lacked atmosphere but it was packed out for lunch so it must have a good reputation. Naturally there is a great choice of good quality wines on offer. There is also a cellar where you can buy wine.

We have just spent 2.5 hours at Villa Maria winery and restaurant this afternoon. We arrived half an hour early (maybe 45 minutes would have been better) so we could do the wine tasting before we had lunch (table booked online for 2pm). Bonnie was the most amazing wine tasting expert - fantastic personality, knowledge and just her warm friendliness... More

We stopped at Villa Maria for a bit of wine tasting but decided to stay for lunch. Great choice! It was a very busy lunchtime with lots of Christmas lunch groups, and we were very lucky to get the last table for two outside on the veranda where we could see the vineyards. The meal was fantastic. We had the... More

Good value for above average food, combined with peaceful vineyard setting. outdoor seating would very nice on a warm summer's day. A decent kids menu although the kids found their wedges too salty for their liking. if you buy from the cellar next to the restaurant, let them know you dined at the restaurant to get 10% discount.

We were en route from the Airport and saw the Vineyard sign. After travelling through uninspiring commercial areas we arrived at the Gates. Here, near all the hustle and bustle, nestled this beautiful area, a longish drive through beautifully kept vines and lawns bought us to the Cellar and Cafe. We didn't need any encouragement to stop, a glass of... More

My sister and I tried one of the mains, some wine, and dessert each. Lots of good food for really good value. We really enjoyed our visit, and our server.
