Great for lunch

Limited menu served midweek as opposed to a full menu on weekends. Still a good selection of delicious pizzas though. It's not a bad option for families given the large grass area out the front, and the casual style dining. Wine is good- surprisingly the less expensive bottles were more enjoyable... read more

Had lunch with friends. Great atmosphere. Young boys playing jazz was a very pleasant touch. Relaxed atmosphere, great food and fabulous wines. Tasting was very nice thanks. Would recommend to anyone for a leisurely lunch or dinner. Beautiful surroundings.

Shadow fax failed to inform customers of payments details for group bookings. As we booked for 15 people we were informed we must have a set menu as this made it easier for shadow fax!!! we would all have preferred individual meals. On the day, 2 of our group, due to family circumstances, were not able to attend. On paying,... More

This has been a favourite venue of ours for quite some time now, so it just made sense to use it as our wedding venue. It couldn't have gone any better, all our guests were well taken care of, the food was amazing and the wine is one of Victoria's best kept secrets. Love this place and will continue to... More

Out last two experiences have been really disappointing. On both occasions the person who appeared to be the manager was very rude. On the first occasion, in pelting rain and with a newborn baby, he forced us to return to our car to move it because he apparently 'could not fit into the car park the 150 people about to... More

Winery wine tasting is usually more about the interaction with the staff than the wines. To this end Emma (I think) was fantastic. Made us feel welcome, knowledgeable about wines, but knew her limitations and didn't try and make up answers. Wine variety is excellent, wine quality is variable. Remarkably good dining.

We headed off to Shadofax Winery for Tuesday lunch. Even though they apologised there was a limited menu on Monday/Tuesday at lunch, we ended up with one of the best lunches we have experienced in the area. Our waitress was outstanding with her knowledge and advice on how to combine various meals. The three of us simply shared the chorizo... More

Visited the winery restaurant for lunch as part of a day tour in Werribee Park. They have a decent menu with accompanying wines to match. While no wine connoisseur, I definitely enjoyed the glass that matched my meal & appreciative of the waitress who looked after me, despite it being busy. Wouldn't mind visiting again to try more of their... More

What feels like a story book - down a dark dark road - and the end of a tree covered trail is the most amazing building that is the Shadowfax Winery Restaurant and Wine room - Sunday's Jazz and lovely food make this an easy stop.

Visited the restaurant to take part in lunch that we had been looking forward to for a while and was not disappointed. Normally they do not open Monday and Tuesday in winter but had decided to with a limited menu. Although the choices were limited the food did not disappoint us. The waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive. A... More
