What a breathe of fresh air

A delightful lunch venue. Menus selections are varied, and the pate and calamari are a standouts. Wine may be purchased by the glass, outdoor tables are available, and the crew are competent. Recommend.

Food as good as and even better than many of the "top" Melbourne venues. Have been a number of times and am never disappointed. From entree to decadent deserts, love it!! Casual, relaxed and inviting inside and out. Always stock up on their wines when we visit. A gem in the west!

We loved this place, I had spoken to both the Shadowfax Winery and the next door Joseph's at the Werribee Mansion and Spa and decided on the more informal dining environment at Shadowfax and we were so glad we did. We were a discerning group having an interior designer/architect and vineyard owner amongst our group and we were all impressed.... More

The wine tasting was a definite highlight, being talked through the various regions and makes. The food was great, a little pricey, but we didn't mind paying the extra for great, locally sourced produce. Will definitely return.

We've been to Shadowfax Winery a number of times - sometimes to eat in the restaurant and others to merely taste the wines. We have always found staff to be friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Such an asset for the business. Wines are all made on the premises, but some of the grapes are brought-in from other wine regions. Prices vary... More

ShadowfaX is an amazing winery/restaurant hidden right down the back end of Werribee Park. The food is fantastic, the service great, and their wines are first class! Being local, you tend to neglect your own backyard... But, I make a concious effort to frequent here. This busy winery/restaurant is something you would expect to find in a renowned wine region,...

Trying to be a five star and falling woefully short. Very expensive, minuscule quantity for price and just nothing special. Lot better places out there for your dollar.
