We had a quick bite to eat here before heading to the cellar door. The restaurant has a lovely open area, food was excellent. Whilst we were here there was a wedding in the grounds, what a perfect setting and the day was spectacular for the happy couple. The Staff in the restaurant and in the... read more

I attended a wedding reception at Centenial Vineyards, the setting was beautiful and the service was exceptional with great food and wine. I really enjoyed it and thought it was the perfect place for a wedding reception.

We didn’t eat here but visited the Cellar Door. The drive to the Centennial Vineyards goes through some stunning countryside, and the buildings are impressive. Upon entry to the Cellar, we were warmly greeting and advised we could sample free of charge three of the wines from the list of those made on the premises. All three I tried were... More

Visiting the southern highlands and stopped here for lunch. The grounds and buildings are quite spectacular - all sandstone and timber. When we entered we waited for about 5 minutes to be spoken to by any of the staff that kept walking past us. Eventually (and just before we were planning to leave) we were asked if we had a... More

This is a beautiful building, we were greeted by a wonderful log fire and courtise staff. Once seated were offered water and allowed to peruse the menu. We decided not to order entrée and ordered the Duck and the Veal Cutlet also a pear & rocket salad. The duck breast looked spectacular but was very overcooked and and had a... More

Although situated in a grand vineyards setting this restaurant disappoints. The food does not match the promise of the menu, was served too quickly and failed to excite. The service was lacklustre and the staff seem disconnected and unmotivated. What a pity because this could easily be the premiere eating house in the Southern Highlands with some better management and... More

After sampling the lovely wines (and buying them!) we went into the restaurant and sat in front of the biggest fire. I had scones and jam - whilst my husband had a glass of wine and a cheese board. Great service and delightful food,drink and location.

Meals are always delicious at Centennial Vineyards Restaurant as was this one that we enjoyed with friends. The meal is complimented by the vista which is the adjoining winery. A visit to the cellar door can have you taking a little bit of the Southern Highlands with you albeit in it liquid form. However, service has slowed down a little... More
