“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We went for lunch and had a wonderful time. Each course was absolutely superb. So wonderful to be treated with such professionalism by the staff. We had a bottle of Phi sauvignon which was great, loved it. Also the creme brûlée which I had, probably the best ever. We didn't know about the wine tasting, so will do that next time.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your lovely feedback about your recent visit with us. The creme brulee is a relatively new addition to our dessert menu and definitely a favourite of our guests. We're pleased you enjoyed your experience in the yarra valley & our restaurant and be sure to visit our cellar door and cheese shop next time you are out here. Cheers!

“This restaurant just gets better and better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

De Bortoli Winery and Restaurant is in a picturesque setting. We sat on a balcony and listened to the birds in the nearby trees as we ate. Service was excellent. We were given time to enjoy a relaxed experience but a waiter appeared whenever needed. The antipasta put most Italian restaurants to shame with its high quality ingredients and variety of ingredients. De Bortoli's wine is very good and good quality wine is served by the glass. We finished our visit by going to the wine tasting room and buying a fine liqueur. Cheeses, nibbles and souvenir gifts are also available for purchase.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback. It sounds like you had a wonderful time dining on our balcony... a great way to enjoy a lovely Spring afternoon. We hope you visit us again soon and indulge in more cheese and wine from our cellar door also.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had lunch at De Bertoli and the food was beautiful, the staff really friendly and knew each dish on the menu. the roasted potatoes with garlic and rosemary were fabulous. It is definately a place we will go back to again.

“Enjoyable Fathers Day meal in beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lovely four course set lunch including fresh bread, olives and prosciutto with delicious lasagna and ice cream for the kids (although they would have preferred more than one choice for mains although I'm sure they would have offered if I asked for something else). The tiramisu was especially good, just wish coffee was included.

Service was excellent although with young children I would've preferred if the courses followed quicker.

What I enjoyed about it was that although the food and atmosphere was first class, it was also child friendly with high chairs and a great little playground outside with a stunning view. You can also picnic there as long as you buy wine at their cellar.

We had a great day thank you!

“Lovely ambience & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by this place for lunch while on our way to Mt Buller. While the main course was pretty ordinary (I don't quite remember what we ordered), we absolutely enjoyed the roasted potatoes with rosemary & garlic. These have got to be the best roasted potatoes we've ever had. Thumbs up for making a simple side dish so delectable that it completely obscured your main courses. Lol! The service was good & the ambience was nice. I would return just for those potatoes!
