It doesn't get better than this. Don't wait for a special occasion, just go! We drove down for a special anniversary weekend and had the degustation lunch, mine with paired wines, my husband's with juices. Everything was just right, from the personalized menu, the intimate atmosphere, the superb views of the vines and valleys, the knowledgeable and attentive service. And... More

Starting off with the long list of pre lunch (birthday) tastings was a must. Matt really looked after us. The staff are amazing, most welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was devine too. Was a wonderful experience all round. We will be back to do the degustation soon!

Can't praise this restaurant enough, food was up there with some of the best hat venues but with an affordable price tag. Staff were impeccable, service perfect but you need to made an advance booking due to its popularity. The grounds are very relaxing and tranquil, don't forget to get a photo at the unique hand sculptures on the driveway

We had a lovely family lunch here on a Sunday - we were lucky to have a 1pm booking so weren't rushed. Note, there is a minimum 2 course menu per person but they are happy for couples to share and organise extra plates etc. We had a table of 6 and everyone's meals were amazing. Staff are friendly and... More

After some wine tasting at this fine establishment, this was also the perfect setting for lunch. Quick service, with attention to detail. Amazing food and flavours. Will definitely come back for the wine, the food, the friendly staff, and the ambience.

d'Arry's Verandah, where do I start.... This place never lets me down I have been here 4 times now and I loved it more and more each time. The service is well above most restaurants. It feels very personalised and some how they make you feel like you are the only one dinning there. The views from the restaurant are... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our tasting menu, even the extra course of Gnocchi and Pine Mushrooms, that dish was a standout. We went for lunch as we have loved the view and food, this time of year though to cool to sit outside, didn't bother us though as we were there to eat!!

This was a repeat visit to the restaurant and there is a reason we came back! Amazing scenery, the knowledge of the staff was limitless, the food looked and tasted spectacular and our party of 10 never wanted for a thing! Made a perfect stop for lunch on our girls trip (10 from across SA, NT, Vic and Qld), could... More

My wife and squeezed in just before the end of lunch service but were not rushed. Everything we had was impressively presented and cooked to perfection. Of particular note was the lamb main.
