Attended a wedding here on Saturday afternoon. Beautiful surroundings for the ceremony and then canapés on the terrace and dinner in the restaurant. The food was surprisingly good for a wedding and the views are magnificent.

So, they did not expect guests to be at their venue. They ran out of alcohol, they served the same (frozen - bought in) finger food. Here’s a hot tip ...... if you have patrons, you need to service them. Go to Dan Murphy’s and...More

Pizza was perfectly fine. I think it's a good idea to come when the weather is good. The view is special.

Expensive, lovely view of Port Phillip bay. The roses reminded me of Springvale crematorium. We finished the main course thinking it was the entree. Very poor range of alcohol. Only wine, limited spirits and beer. Once only.

The venue is wonderful, attitude of staff was dreadful. Availability of wine (it's a winery isn't it) was limited. We pre-booked for a large group and paid a deposit yet it seemed to be a surprise when we arrived. A fantastic experience made ordinary.

I find it difficult to understand how a winery runs out of wine, it's like a McDonalds running out of a Big Mac Despite that we had the best of days, how can you not with 19 friends. Food good, but a waitress that says...More
