We recently dined at the Serafino Restaurant and, have to say it one of the best meals I have had in a long time. An entree of pork belly and prawns with Asian style veges is still taunting my tastebuds, followed by a rack of lamb done to perfection. We highly recommend the Serafino Restaurant to anyone travelling to the... More

As a wine lover I was referred to Serafino and was excited to try their wines! The lady at the cellar door looked me over and was short sharp and rude to me during my tasting! The other couple that were there clearly dripping in money or status were receiving a suck up session from her and she couldn't care... More

We had a lovely dinner at Serafinos last night. The canapés were a stunning start to a lovely evening. This was followed by either lamb racks it venison pies and then panacotta. A wonderful way to showcase the produce of the area. The waitresses were all very pleasant and helpful. The wines on offer were great. So we'll go back... More

Bronwyn & I managed to score a Weekend Accommodation & Food package at Serafino. We wondered whether it would be as good as our last visit and soon found that this venue is consistent in providing spectacular dining in a very friendly and attractive environment. Our first stay in the accommodation, only 15 minutes from home! This will not be... More

The meat was very tender and tasty and the vegetables very fresh. We would have loved this as a main (but the wait staff didn't tell us this before we ordered). We choose... More
