An impromptu visit on Easter Monday and the place was a buzz. We requested seating inside and were accommodated by the lovely hostess. Front of house is soo important when there is a hive of activity. We were attended to by the lovely Hanna who explained the menu efficiently to ensure we achieved our aim of sharing lovely plates. Charcuterie... More

Average food and service for the money paid. For rustic Italian is amusing and funny. Service was sloppy with the waitresses seeming to interested on what happened over the weekend rather than explaining any of the wines on the wine list. Overall I will go to the city rather than here, Carlton, still better food, prices and service. Overall disappointing... More

We've been coming to Shadowfax for a few years now and it's always a crowd pleaser. Nothing better than a Sunday afternoon in the sunshine with a selection of the share plates and a bottle of their wine (red white or bubbly - they're all really good). It's always busy so often it's hard to get a table (have to... More

Attended unannounced prior to my daughters wedding later in the year. This is a great winery, tastings were delicious and not just two drops in the bottom of a glass. Were even given clean glasses after tasting whites before moving to reds - why doesn't everybody do this? Staff were excellent, food was delicious, just a great place to have... More

Very relaxing way to spend an afternoon, the staff were fantastic We were taken through a wine tasting and it helped us work out which wines to have with our lunch. We ended up staying there for 5 hours, relaxing, eating, drinking and making some great new friends!

We had lunch at Shadowfax after going to the Zoo. It was a popular place. The staff were friendly and helpful. The menu was a little limited but we found some enjoyable light selections. There was a wait for the food. There is outside dinning or inside has a nice winery feel with a tasting bar. All up quite good.

It was packed on a normal sunday afternoon. The wait staff were great! the wine tasting was average but I suppose with all the noise and hussle and bussle of the restaurant it was hard to do it 'properly!' food was yummy and wines were nice!

Our second visit to Shadowfax left us a little disappointed. The service was excellent and Chardonnay we had pleasant but the food and selections were ordinary, with the restaurant too noisy with the band music for a relaxing Sunday lunch-time conversation.
