We enjoyed a quiet dinner at this restaurant. The choices were many and the waiter/owner was attentive and funny. We checked out the gallery and took home a lovely glass piece and the fireplace kept us warm. Our meals were truly delicious, especially the chicken breast in a bacon cream sauce. Scrumptious desserts followed and we would highly recommend.

The gallery restaurant wins on a number of points: the building exterior and interior are both beautiful; the gallery has some great wildlife art; and the food is great: of good quality, with vegetarian choices, fine wines, and all at reasonable prices. I will definitely come back. It is not open every day, so check first.

Wonderful platter of local produce, olive bread, olives, great olive oil, leg ham, cheese, and peppers and greens - very pleasant lunch with a nice bottle of Michelton wine, all in very pleasant surroundings, and of course, wonderful works of art hanging on the walls, well worth a visit.

This is a gem, From the quirky owner to the art gallery, gift shop environment to the romantic setting of the old historical building It's a pleasure from start to finish, The meals are well prepared, enjoyable but not extravagant Can't believe it's not booked solid every day. Just love it and it's in Seymour, how lucky they are.

First impression was great, old style building but very nicely maintained and tastefully adorned throughout with artworks. Hosts were friendly, welcoming and attentive. It was very pleasant to be able to wander through the gallery admiring the various art works with a glass of wine in hand. We enjoyed the food, Beef Wellington is not a dish I see on... More

ONLY the OPEN sign was on the CAFE sign was turned off - the GALLERY stays open outside meal times. You arrived at 10 to 2 without a booking, the others in the restaurant had bookings. YES you were the last 'LUNCH' walk-ins considering our other booking on the busiest weekend in the town. You say service nil - what... More

Stopover from Sydney to Melbourne so not really expecting to find a full on art gallery in the local restaurant. Enjoyed chicken Caesar salad and the chance to wander round the gallery and, yes, we bought a modest picture.

We had a very enjoyable meal here. The atmosphere of the heritage building enhanced the experience and it was lovely to be surrounded by the paintings in the exhibition too. Our waiter was efficient, friendly and had a sense of humour. The food was good quality and the serving sizes were generous. We would be happy to eat here again.

Friends on a country holiday – 10 of us. Looked good, had a few drinks outside in the shaded area & everything looked good for a great lunch.

Some people you just cannot please - 8 out of 10 ain’t bad. YES the restaurant is in a C1872 restored building that is a 7 room Fine Art Gallery in the ‘Country’! As the owners for over 20 years we try very hard not to be pompous & pretentious but friendly & courteous. More
