4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 NEW

Had a lovely meal on the Saturday night, the duck was absolutely delicious and my husband said the same about the pork belly, returned next day for wine and beer tasting with a delicious cheese platter accompaniment. Only minor criticism was the limited menu for children only had 2 options.

Some menu items had run out when I ordered. Service bad. Maybe suited to 18 to 21 year olds in a big group but if you just want a nice meal with friends I would look elsewhere

We and a fabulous lunch at this restaurant that is also the outlet for Ekhidna wines. Kate the owner spent time chatting with us and made the visit very special by telling us about the history of the vineyard and the quality of the Shiraz. We recommend this to everyone who wants to have a close relationship with the wine... More

As someone who is gluten and dairy intolerant I was stoked to see that the tasting plates had a gluten free and dairy free option ! Really friendly service from our brunette waitress and lovely atmosphere - would definitely return :)

We stopped in at Ekhidna for lunch this summer. We are so glad that we did. We sat outside next to their beautiful vineyard. The platters were perfect and very delicious. The service was wonderful. Their sparkling shiraz impressed my visiting guests. You will not be disappointed here.

Spur of the moment decision to go to the Vale to stock up with wine and try this place, it was wonderful. The wait staff are very attentive and not overbearing and know there stuff which is something I look for in a nice place like this. The selections of wine that are matched with the food are carefully thought... More

If you only visit one venue in the vale make it Ekhidna. These guys have the Midas touch - Wonderful wine, Magnificent Micro Brewery, Fantastic food and Cracking coffee! As a winery, bar and restaurant there is nothing that these guys don't excel at! A great setting and there really is something here for everyone.

On the spur of the moment we decided to head out for lunch and didn't arrive at Ekhidna until close to 3pm, expecting we would be too late for lunch. It wasn't a problem and we received very friendly service. We loved the food (me duck, he lamb), wine, service & location. Another great discovery. Highly recommended.

We had a small group of family and friends at the restaurant where the whole event was excellent and everybody commented about the service provided, the food that was provided and the wine and locally brewed beer . The whole experience was first class.
