Fantastic cellar door. Lunch, wait staff very professional and friendly, view and wine divine. Can't speak highly enough about the whole experience.

The restaurant dining room is a terrace that looks out over the vineyard. Perfect location for the excellent food and service they provide there. There’s always a little surprise to start. Today’s was a creamy potato, leek and paprika soup served in a shot glass. Didn’t order it, it just turned up. A perfect appetiser. I always have oysters but... More

We enjoyed lunch at Centennial Vineyards recently. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was tasty and we enjoyed the unexpected amuse bouche of pumpkin soup shot glasses and slices of pissaladiere while we waited for our mains. I enjoyed the local mushroom rissotto and the chocolate dessert with melted centre was a hit-worth the 20 minute wait. Good coffee also.... More

This is my go to winery when exploring the Southern Highlands, it has beautiful surroundings, friendly and informative staff and a wide selection of wines. (This review probably belongs under the winery but can't find a Tripadvisor page for them)

We had high tea here today and I was a little underwhelmed. A beautiful setting but the service didnt match up. Whilst very friendly, we were not offered any tea until the meal had been finished, which was very strange. For my taste there was too much sweet and not enough savoury, which I usually find is the case at... More

Having had a food blog for over 3 years and regularly dining out, the service here is the worst we have ever experienced. We booked for high tea and was not served AT ALL after we sat down. After 20 minutes we had to ask for water. Another 15 minutes later the food came without the tea. Who serves high... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have followed up the high tea booking on this day and the group were extremely happy with their experience. We had no other high tea booking that day- were you apart of the large group? If so the group high teas are only served once everyone arrives. We do not have tea menu so... More

Had our wedding here and it was truly magical and amazing. The staff, especially the chef, were fantastic. The wines were amazing too. Would highly recommend as a wedding venue but also if you're looking for a quality meal in a perfect location. Thanks for all the amazing memories!

Beautiful location. The restaurant was set up for a wedding so we were seated in the wing of the restaurant. Still was a lovely table. We had the prawn linguini and lamb to share and my friends had the tasting plate as an entree. We were happy with all of it as the flavours were great and the meal as... More

I am a frequent diner at Centennial Vineyards Restaurant. Whether it's the monthly Book Club or a special 'event' Robyn Murray, owner and chef delivers fabulous food every single time. The menu for Father's Day on Sunday was wonderfully balanced, offering a choice of 3 dishes for every course. As it turned out, between 3 of us, we had everything... More

I visited the vineyard with my two sisters, who are seasoned foodies and travellers. We had lunch and we still talk about the excellent food. The tasting plate was divine and all of our main courses delicious. We sat at a table with views over the vineyard, which allowed us to feel transported to another place. The service was excellent.... More
