I went here on a work function and had a nice experience. The food was pre-ordered platters but what was offered was very tasty, but not enough for me. We tried the their own beers and whilst I personally didn't like it my colleagues did. My only negative was that it was very busy and quiet noisy but this is... More

This wasn't our first visit to Ekhidna and wasn't going to be our last but after the way one of the waitresses spoke to me I won't be coming back. My partner and I were excited to go back for our last visit to Ekhidna before it shut down to go to it's new location. I walked in, my partner... More

I attended with a group of friends. Staff were excellent, and the food was magnificent. The ginger beer and dark ale was a big hit. Thoroughly recommend.

Our family ate our New Years Eve lunch here. It is a lovely restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. Our food was very memorable and we hope that the new location delivers food just as amazing as we ate today. My husband had the pork belly with parsnip chips and he said it was a generous portion and beautifully cooked.... More

Last night we visited this restaurant with 14 friends for a party and dinner. The staff were fabulous especially Sarah who was great fun and the service was brilliant. The food selection was great and had a good variety of dishes. I had the trout to start which was beautifully presented and followed up with squid which was amazing. The... More

Being our second visit, knowing how great the experience would be, we were not dissapointed. Seated outside by the vineyard, created a romantic setting, resulting in us getting stuck there for nearly three hours enjoying each other's company whilst endulging in the lovely wines, beers and amazing food.

Just love the set up. I can taste wine and beer before my meal and then have it by the glass or bottle with my meal. Platter of dips with a beer taster was great one afternoon. Had to go back for dinner soon after.

We were on a small wine tour which stopped here for lunch. The food was amazing - it just kept coming. (probably a bit too much for just the two of us). The olives on the platter were incredible and we obtained the name of the local vendor and then purchased quite a few to take home. Nice setting, top... More

Perfect Sunday lunch! Matthew and his team were terrific hosts and the food was outstanding! The cured trout, complimented by strawberries and mint with balsamic dressing was to die for. Excellent wine tasting! Couldn't be any better!
