Amazing!! This was our Valentine's lunch and it was magnificent. I read about this place in the good food guide and I know why is was scored so well. The restaurant itself is stunning, the warm welcoming scent of freshly baked bread hits you as you walk in. The service was efficient, friendly and very knowledgeable. The wine was superb,... More

Went today for lunch, signs have gone, fittings from inside have gone, phone rings out, cellar door hasn't seen owners since Sunday 30th April. Looks permanently closed, no signs to say moving or renovating.

Took a chance at lunch here with a couple of friends. Well worth the effort as several other wineries did not have lunch available. The guy who greeted us was a little "strange", a bit like Basil from Fawlty Towers, but once he settled everything went very nicely. Menu was different but excellent and prices around $45 each for main... More

A busy little spot with dishes to please the eye and the palette with wine to complement from the local vineyard. Fresh local produce, bread and delicious deserts, especially the desert tasting plate, make up a very pleasant dining experience. Children are welcome but there is not a specific kid's menu.

I have to start by saying that a great plus for this place is the location. It's close to Melbourne, surrounded by vineyards and beautiful countryside. The restaurant is in a beautiful house, and isn't too big, so it doesn't feel crowded or noisy. The decoration is simple and has a homely feel to it. We were a group of... More

Tim and Gary were extremely accommodating. We arrived very late and they managed to look after us last minute. Rabbit pie was delicious and the wine matched it very well. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and service.

We were taken to Bella Vedere by some friends from Melbourne who had read good reviews about the restaurant. Things started well as you walk past the freshly based deserts and bread and they looked delicious. We were seated at a corner table with a view to the vineyard. All good so far and then our young waitress arrived. She... More

My husband and I come here very regularly, mainly because we expect good food and great service from places we eat at and we get both here. The menu isn't changing quite as much as it used to but in a way that is good because our favorites stay there longer! Nice outlook over the vines, has a winery attached... More

We decided to share an entree, which was an unusual vegetarian dish of sweetcorn, eggplant, sweet potato and spinach all steamed together in the corn husk and served with delicious sweet corn puree and lightly steamed spinach, mopped up with a selection of the house-made breads - delicious! We followed this with a classic wild rabbit cooked with bacon, and... More
