Had our wedding reception here and could not fault the whole experience. Great staff helped with the planning, always willing to help out. Staff on the night we're fantastic, and food could not have been any better. Great experience.

We had a wonderful meal here at their Pop-up Restaurant. We weren't very hungry due to a large meal that afternoon so were looking for something light to eat. They allowed us to share a starters and then were very nice to ensure that the...honey elements in the meal were separated so that I could share. For my mains there was honey in the carrots but they cooked me some separate so that I could enjoy the full meal. Excellent staff, surroundings and professionalism to ensure that we were made to feel special.More

My husband and I came here for dinner recently. Their restaurant is currently closed for renovations so we dined in their pop-up restaurant which is actually their new cellar door. The tables were well spaced apart and the views overlooking the decking area and magnificent...gum trees and lake are lovely. For main course I ordered confit duck leg with honey roasted heirloom carrots and braised lentils. Hubby ordered porterhouse steak with rainbow chard, hand-cut shoestring fries and red wine jus. We also ordered a side of brussel sprouts with pancetta lardons and chesnut puree. The presentation was excellent, my duck was very tender and hubby was very happy with his steak. Both dishes were delicious. We loved the combination of flavours in the side dish of brussel sprouts too. For dessert we both decided to have bombe alaska. I have had bombe alaska before and this was made differently to the original recipe. It was a little bit disappointing, the flavour was there but the presentation was lacking and it looked a bit lost served on a large plate. Overall, we really enjoyed our dining experience, the food and service was very good and staff were helpful. We will definitely come back.More

In the middle of a busy day wine tasting and searching the olive plantations we came across this delightful oasis. Nice meal as well as a great selection of food and wine.

A tantalising Autumn Menu, with an impressive line up of innovative dishes which were visually stunning and equally appealing on the palate. All sorts of deliciousness! The Chef and his team display a deft hand in their treatment of flavours and textures. Great front of...house service too.More

My wife and I went to Serafino for lunch to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and it was fantastic. The service was great and the food was even better. The starters of venison and croquettes were fantastic. For entrees, we had the charred squid &...the roasted tomatoes; for mains, the Serafino Steak & the Lenswood Duck and for dessert we had the cucumber & fennel sorbet and the chocolate mousse. A brilliant experience that I cannot recommend highly enough.More
