Can only rate the cafe and token cellar door, did not dine in the restaurant, so cannot rate it, but have been told it is great. Self service, over priced cafe with lack lustre expensive wines. Haven't been to too many wineries that charge $35 a bottle for ALL wines, they are very underwhelming. Fabulous view, the Portarlington mussels are... More

We came here for girls drinks this was my second visit the last time was a few years back which I couldn't fault! This time we had casual dining, staff were all very young and not really interested in what they were doing didn't go over the role of pouring a drink. We got a grazing plate to share between...

We pulled up here on the recommendation of a friend. The place was busy and a bit noisy, but because of the weather we couldn't go outside. The food was excellent, we had a cheese platter but the wine was overpriced. I don't know why cellar doors have to be so expensive when restaurants can charge less. Oh well I've... More

Had lunch in the café which had spectacular views and the place was busy. We had to line up to order meals and drinks which became a drag as you would have to wait 10-15 minutes in a queue which I find very off putting. For the sake of having another staff member working we would have bought more drinks... More

We went for lunch on a Wednesday. We'd booked a Table in the restaurant. Had a look at the cafe, menu and prices. The cafe has a good selection but not a fine dining experience. The restaurant is definitely a fine dining experience. The quail as an entree was very good, pork belly even better. Eye fillet for main, perfect,... More

Not much else you can ask for her - especially on a lovely early Autumn day. It was very busy as it was a Public Holiday.
