“No faults, excellent all round.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

I come here every couple of weeks with my mum for a light dinner and wine. I don't drink wine myself, but I've never heard my mum go on and on about wine like she does when we are here. The atmosphere is spectacular, and for such an open space it is always warm in winter. We always order a few options off the food menu to share, they are always amazing and it's great to see a lot of local produce being used.
Service is always fast and very friendly, staff are always helping mum choose what wine to drink and are always lovely to talk to, even when it's busy.
Have recommended this place to quite a few people before, and will continue to do so.

“Character, comfort, classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

I didn't eat here. I just relaxed on the ground floor to read my book. The staff are amazing, friendly and worldly. The furniture is eclectic and adds to the relaxed atmosphere. Although I was alone I didn't feel judged or out of place. Well done to the staff.

“Would love this if it were my local in Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Great selection of local & internatonal wines, beers and spirits. A yum selection of Tapas. Brilliant fit out and a top casual dining option if you are in Ballarat.

“Awesome wine selection and ambience ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

A refreshing way to see a cellar door in operation. The team at Mitchell Harris have done a superb job of highlighting their own wines, other regional examples and a few great international drops. Bar food was superb and a great ambiance created by awesome staff. Highly recommend visiting if you in the region.
