Lovely meal

I was given a voucher for my birthday so decided to use last weekend. The restaurant is beautiful when you enter, lovely surroundings, glassed windows overlooking vineyard. My husband had gnocchi which was different to what he has had, not a huge meal but lost of interesting flavours. I had the... read more

What a delighful quaint and wonderful winery, we went there to avoiid the Big names of the Yarra Valley and this was the second time we'd visited Shantel and again it was 5 Star wines and food at a great price. The owners Shan “winemaker’ and his wife Turid were delightful who co served and frequented the guests table with... More

This small family owned winery produces outstanding wines. The restaurant onsite is very small (bookings essential) and only opens for lunch. However, the food is spectacular. The cellar door is located off the Melba Highway in the Yarra Valley not far from DeBortoli Wines. It can be hard to spot, but is well worth the trip a bit further along... More

All food was thoughtfully presented in lovely dishes. The food was divine ! The small and cosy dining area was very clean, uncluittered, well heated and presented a private outlook to the vineyard.

I have been to Shantell many times over the years. It is a pleasant experience without a failure. Food is tasty well presented and excellent selections in the menu. Very few restaurants where both the owners attend to the customers which gives a personal touch. Views over the winery is beautiful and I can recommend at any time.

Took some interstate friends to lunch at Shantells as, having been before, loved the surroundings and the food. The booking was made with ease, very friendly and i thought excellent! However, that all promptly changed when we arrived. The pre-requisite wine tasting was such hard work! The lass obviously knew nothing regarding the wines as she hardly uttered a word!... More

Meals are really small portions. Mains are size of an entree but cost in the high $30s. Don't order any wine as they are just as stingy about wine as they are meals.

A small restaurant within a beautiful winery. The food changes with the seasons so you will always experience something different. Family owned and operated means there is dedication to your experience here. I love the Semillon, it goes with all the food on the menu. Delightful place for a leisurely lunch, open from Thursday to Monday for lunches only.

For a refundable with purchase $3 tasting fee, you can sample a half-dozen or so good wines in a sleek setting.

We went to Shantell for a birthday luncheon with family and friends and were absolutely delighted with the whole event. The owners and staff went to a lot of trouble to ensure the event went well. The entire set-up looked lovely with linen, customised menus and flowers from the vineyard on the tables. Everyone was really impressed with the food,... More
