lunch for nine! Shared tasting plates for starters then most of the mains and deserts. Everyone of our group was full of praise for the excellent food, from the truffle infused poussin to the salmon and the gnocchi. The deserts absolutely thrilled! High praise indeed. We were all glad the restaurant was deservedly full. The service from the family run... More

Wednesday is a great day to go tasting. It's quiet and the lack of crowds allow you time to savor wine tastes and visit with your hosts. This winery is small & family owned with a small restaurant and wonderful aboriginal art on the walls. The wine they make is lovely. And you must buy it on their premises. Their... More

Went in for lunch over, had a bottle of bubbly with our meal. Great vineyard, wonderful restaurant with lovely settings and picturesque views. Feels close to the touch of wine along with its nature and process. Wonderful experience of that. Shares an entrée tasting board with my partner and it was below our expectation, less then mediocre. Almost like putting... More

Go just to try the Pinot noir, it really is exceptional. Like a number of wineries there is a small tasting fee that is refundable upon purchase. Owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Absolutely loved it. Great service. Pinot noir was outstanding I had to buy some bottles. My wagyu beef was cooked to perfection. Loved the sharing plate. The wine is to die for, My partner said he wanted to lick the plate!!! At one point he looked at me and said "best restaurant ever", he had the lamb. We shared a... More

Beautiful food, scenic surrounding and very pleasant staff. We sat at a table in the balcony overlooking the beautiful valley. What a serene surrounding, saw a few colourful rosellas too. The food was delicious and creative. We had the recommended wine for our dishes, which was really lovely. I ordered a vegetarian sweet potato and lentil croquettes. The Jerusalem artichokes... More

Just had lunch at Shantell Vineyard & Winery. My main course was the best dish served to me in a restaurant for months. I ordered Prawn/Scallop Lemon infused Risotto and it was perfectly delicious. Before ordering I enquired that the seafood was not incorporated into the risotto and it came perfectly seared and cooked and placed on top of the... More

Our first visit to Shantell was earlier this year with friends who'd chosen the venue. Have to confess having seen some of the reviews we were a little sceptical. We left with all four of us having thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We opted for the Shantell Sharing Plate to start, a variety of cold meats, marinated vegetables with bread and... More

We booked lunch at Shantell for the second time last week. The food in my opinion is excellent. After the shared platter for entrée, I had the Seared Langoustine & Scallops and my wife had the Snapper Crusted with Baharat Spice Mix, both were delicious, There are large windows all around the restaurant with fantastic views over the vineyard and...

A lively group of us visited for lunch on a weekday. Beautiful restaurant and setting. We walked into a deathly quiet wine tasting and restaurant area and were perfunctorily attended to. Zero conversation from staff, no interaction at all. Robotic. Uncomfortably quiet, no music, not even a "Hello. How are you today". No one interested in explaining anything at all... More
