We had lunch here - the setting in the vineyard is pretty. The wine list is great and the opportunity to try flights of wine with your lunch is highly recommended. We had the lobster bisque and tomato salad as starters - the bisque is very rich with a terrific flavour but expensive at $35 a serve. The salad was... More

Visited today for a special occasion. We were told on booking that last bookings were at 1.45pm. As I was working this morning this made it a bit of a rush but got there just before 1.45pm to be told our table wasn't ready and to go into the tasting room. We didn't really want to do this as worried... More

We were "highly recommended" by a local trader to visit this wonderful and historical Vineyard & Restaurant lovingly and skilfully run by the fourth generation of Osborn Family. Beautiful views from the verandah and ambience added to our delectable a la carte lunch; our entrees included a lobster medallion with blue swimmer crab & prawn ravioli bisque, 6 oysters with...

This restaurant has a great location and excellent food. The drawback is the regimentation. Although there is an a la carte menu, you have to have either an entrée and a main course, or a main and a dessert on weekends (something that we were not told when we booked). We were able to obtain a special dispensation after some... More

This is also highlighted on our website, and on our menus. We provide a leisurely dining experience, and have no time limits during the week. On weekends bookings for 12.30,... More

Enjoyed a wonderful Sunday Lunch. Opted for the degustation and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful courses, the beetroot cured salmon and the chocolate dessert were very memorable. Felt a little crowded but the meal made up for this.

Book early! Amazing setting, food and wine and very friendly and attentive staff. The signature dish "the lobster medallion with blue swimmer crab stuffed ravioli" is a must. My partner and I shared it and just the taste was enough to satisfy our curiosity as to why this dish is considered so special. We followed this up with a main... More

We loved the food. We both ordered the lamb shoulder, which was superb. We love our lamb and this dish was truly memorable. The wines were excellent and the chocolate cake dessert was simply the best. The location and ambience is open, airy and casual. Service was good but at times was slow and disjointed, with staff waiting to be... More
