Very few restaurants have a setting this good.

If you have never been here then you are in for a surprise. Shadowfax sits behind the Werribee mansion and between the golf club and equestrian centre. It is very peaceful for a place only 25 minutes from the City. The wines and foods are excellent, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is... read more

Great atmosphere. Very good food and wine. Just a very short stroll from Werribee Mansion. Fun to visit late at night with Susan. Wine tasting during the day. Outdoor seating.

Nice venue, Friday night quite busy with a band playing (but much too loud). Food portion was small , more entree sized, three of us had the same meal, 'gnocchi' which we all agreed was tasteless. Dessert was also small. So a bit disappointed as meals we spent $400 and all went home still hungry.

Dropped in for a late lunch on Sunday. Very busy as usual and we had no booking. We were encouraged to go to the tasting counter, try the wines and a table would be ready in 5 minutes. 5 turned to 10ish but the tasting wines were good and we weren't in a rush. Bought a half dozen of the... More

My husband and i stayed at the Werribee Mansion for our first wedding anniversary. We were advised of the location of the winery, and after a lovely walk around the garden, enjoyed free wine tasting at the winery. There was a jazz band playing, the resturant appeared quite full, even at 3pm in the afternoon. Many people were outside enjoying... More

I am amazed at the last review, about there table of 8 who will not return to Shadowfax. They made a booking for 8 but turned up with 10. The venue was fully booked out but all avenues were explored to please them but to no avail. They expected patrons to be moved around to accommodate them. They waited 3/4... More

Absolutely disgusted with the host of the restaurant, he was very rude to our table of 8 and abused my friend to a point that she was so embarrassed! We waited for our food for 1hr 20mins even though other table were served before us and we were there before them. We will never dine here again!

I have eaten here twice whilst travelling on the Geelong Rd. The food is very good with interesting pizzas and light meals like swordfish sashimi, beautifully presented. I haven't tried the more substantial offerings. The wine is very good with Chardonay I think, their best varietal but not the only one with quality. The setting is great with outdoor tables... More
