Mod amount of enjoyable rissotto with a whiff of truffle around $40 price.. Views nice- mostly from walk around after meal as where seated at... More

Where do I begin. Borrodell is situated high above Lake Canobolas with views over the city of Orange. It is equally spectacular at night as well as in the day. We have lunch sitting outside with views of Orange and the surrounding vines. Food was great and you should taste their wines. The hosts always make you feel welcome and... More

We had tried to book for lunch on Saturday but the restaurant was full however because of the recommendations received we decided to book an early lunch on Sunday before we drove back to Sydney. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly and we had a lovely table in the corner giving full benefit of the wonderful view over the... More

Our experience here is limited to a one course lunch. The service was pleasant, the waitress cleared a table for us fairly quickly and we had a good view of the very foggy and rainy day outside. The spiced lamb cutlets, orange couscous and sauces around the side were most enjoyable as was the bread. In winter the restaurant has... More

This is one of my favorite places to go for a special occasion. It is a bit pricey, but the food is worth it. On a summer's day, sit under the trees on the patio sipping the Borrodell cider and admire the view over the hills. So peaceful.

A superb restaurant with courteous service, scrumptious meals and divine wine. So happy to have experience this classy restaurant. And the artworks on the walls are fantastic too. Couldn't fault anything. Well done!

Went here with my partner and sister in law. It was expensive but we did have cocktails and an expensive bottle of wine which was delicious. The service was well timed, courteous, and friendly without being in your face, the atmosphere was demure and the views of course over the valley and orchards were great (Autumn). The food was very... More

Sister's Rock Restaurant is a family-run restaurant, located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, overlooking the Pinot Noir block. Enjoy the food & wine in a venue with glorious views over the slopes of the Towac Valley to Orange in the distance. Our philosophy of food has developed around a love of growing produce on the property and serving it straight to the plate, a true reflection of the seasons. We are a heritage apple and plum orchard, vineyard, grow cider apples for our own traditional cider and black Perigord truffles. All meals are accompanied by Borrodell cool-climate, award-winning wines. The menu changes regularly according to seasonal availability. Please phone to discuss the current menu.
