Awesome food - great waiter!

3 of us went there today - had the chicken liver and pulled lamb as starters. Awesome. Had the barramundi for mains. Great. The best was the service. The wait staff were run off their feet due to every owner of every Porsche in Australia turning up in their polo shirts and sweaters tied around... read more

This was the third time I have been to this restaurant.The food is really nice with a beautiful ambience. We enjoyed the fresh oysters as entree and then absolutely loved the pork belly,fish and steak. The only problem I have had at this restaurant each time is that the service is not sharp.The maitre de especially lacks warmth and we... More

Found the cellar door tasting area a bit of a bun fight on a Sunday afternoon. As a result didin't really get much attention or feel for their wines although had plenty to taste. Neither the whites, reds or sparklings were to my taste but that is a personal choice. Tasting area itself quiet nicely put together and gardens surrounding... More

Their Blanc De Blanc, is crisp and easy drinking. Good place to taste Pinot Grigio and Savagnin. Friendly staff. Late Autumn Chardonnay was popular. Free delivery for a dozen purchase.

Similar to a few of the other reviews here, I was very disappointed with my high-tea experience at Centennial Vineyards. I would strongly recommend readers to check other review websites as well before making a reservation here - I know it would've saved us from a bit of disappointment. My partner and I visited a few weeks back and were... More

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
