Awesome Lunch with Beautiful Views.

We had a beautiful lunch on the 19 March with magnificent views and excellent service. The food was yummy and very filling. It was a lovely atmosphere to have lunch with a bottle of wine to top it off.

My husband and I visited for Sunday lunch after a stressful week and found it to be just what we needed. The food was excellent ,the ambience complete with a tinkling piano was very good, with a view of a lake and gumtrees. I would recommend it for a special occasion or when you need to relax.

Had a great meal here with friends who were staying for the weekend. Superb service from Marty, a meal that was presented and cooked to perfection. Not been here for a long time despite being a local but will certainly recommend to others. Kudos to the chef and servers.

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
