Description: The Old Vine is like a Tardis - there is a lot more to it than it appears from the outside. A beautiful outdoor dining area under the shade of an old Moreton Bay Fig and Carob tree. A relaxed and friendly place to dine for breakfast lunch or dinner, with a fully enclosed verandah and excellent coffee. Seats up to 100.

“Suprisingly Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

This unassuming looking place offers up top notch cooking using locally sourced ingredients , all skillfully prepared by a chef who clearly understands how food should look and taste. Home made pasta and bread were excellent as was the accompanying wine list. Casual dining done very well courtesy of the friendly Graham and his team. Hope to be there again soon. Thanks.

“Always delicious food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Went here for lunch for hubbies birthday. We had the Regional platter which consists of meat, cheeses, chutney and pickles from the area. It was delicious and served 2 of us easily.
We've eaten here before and I'm always impressed with the service and the food.
Its not cheap though so keep that in mind.
On a nice day you could have children playing outside under the trees if they need some entertainment after lunch.
Nice coffee :)

“Good breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Thought this would be better, and maybe just copped a bad serving of eggs Florentine. The trifle was fantastic, and other breakfasts around looked great = however you score on what you experience...

Liked:
- Wide variety of tea.
- Yogurt and fruit trifle was excellent.
- Friendly owner
- Menu - wished we were back for lunch

Disliked:
- Poached eggs were hard.
- Bearnaise sauce was OK, but not great.

“Food, service, view just amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Group of friends wanting a lovely night. Got so much more. All tastes catered for - including vegetarian with most food and wine and beer locally sourced. Meals are filling so we did not sample their lovely dessert menu. Instead some of us came back and had a light meal so we could indulge. Well worth the revisit. Outdoors area looks gorgeous. A great showcase of all things local.
