“Good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

If you want a great fillet steak, try it out at Goatshed. We have been back 3 times. Usually verby busy, so make sure to make a booking especially over weekends.

“Good extension of Winery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Good place, Deco, wine and beer, nothing for vegetarian, except salads, may be the think that goats are vegetarian so the vegetarian people must be eating same type of food lol.

“Decent lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

I had a lamb curry which was pretty good. My wife wanted a vegetarian option but they were not ready to offer anything off the menu, which I thought was a trifle odd especially since she requested a very simple dish like pasta arrabiata when they were alredy offering other pastas. Our friend had another dish which was alright.

““ Excellent meal at the Goatshed Restaurant “”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The Fairview Wine Estate is located in wonderful settings and the Goatshed Restaurant compliments the estate perfectly , being in a beautiful building with indoor and outdoor seating .
The menu – with its superb range of their award winning cheeses – is excellent and that comes through in the delightful food that is served promptly and efficiently with very generous helpings provided.
Their excellent wines can also be enjoyed as well as the great “Jack Black “ craft beer !!
A visit to the Wine and Cheese shop ( for wine tasting and sales ) afterwards is a must and the children( and others ) will be delighted with the “ goat tower “ in front of the restaurant !!!!! – a novel idea !
