“I wish this place was ten minutes by tractor from my place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

A top place to dine. It's one of those restaurants that offers the whole package. Amazingly knowledgable staff who have a passion for what they do. Very smart dining room with an amazing rural view. We had the degustation which was outstanding. Local and fresh produce. Enjoyed the Tenx wine and the explanation that came along with each glass. Love the fresh herbs in the pots at the restaurant entry!!

“The Total Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

To say that we loved everything about Ten Minutes By Tractor is an understatement! The 4 of us decided to give the 8 course degustation a go & teamed it with the matching local wines which was NOT a mistake. While service at this type of establishment is expected to be of a certain level, we were still surprised at their ability to keep the absolute professionalism while having a bit of fun with us & their knowledge of what was being out in front of us was outstanding. The food was sensational with highlights including the Mustard Rubbed Quail, the Seared Tuna & the Duck & Five Spice, ending with a mix of desserts that were promised to 'knock your knickers off' that didn't disappoint. Do yourself a favour & pay them a visit!

“One of the best winery restaurants in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Had lunch on a week day with some friends.It was the first visit to this restaurant for everyone.None of us were disappointed,we all agreed that this was a great restaurant and well deserved its 2 hat rating in the Age 2013 Good Food guide.
We all decided to have the 2 course lunch which from memory was $68.We all had different dishes ,everyone totally enjoyed their choice.I would describe menu as being international with a local slant.
We all had wine,they had a very good wine list,we decided to be loyal and have the'Ten Minutes By Tractor', we had tried this wine before and found the new vintages to be just as good as earlier ones.
They also have a large wine list of other makers wines both Victorian and from other states.
The service was smooth and friendly.
In summary ,a great restaurant and well worth trying.

“Great meal although not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If one is looking for top class dining on the outskirts of Melbourne this is a great place to dine. The food is excellent and well presented. They also have a great range of wines including local wines. The service was what you would expect from a top class restaurant. One of he nicest things is that the tables are well spaced
