Once inside we saw a bright airy restaurant with linen serviettes - not what we expected if the outside was to be a guide. Although the servings were smallish, presentation was excellent and none of the group was hungry after beautiful desserts, dainty but superb. Almost all tables were taken and noise level was surprisingly low, so we were able... More

Lovely location with views for lunch. Wonderful hosts. Small restaurant with great food. Small but good selection. Wonderful wine and excellent service. Had a relaxing lunch without feeling pressured to hurry.

Very pleasant and quiet atmosphere. Service was perfect. Food was excellent. The only criticism, albeit a very minor one was the fruit served with the Panacotta was quite diem. I loved the Pistachio crunch and the Panacotta itself, but would have preferred something other than sliced crunchy fruit. Apart from that our meals were faultless.

After nearly 10 years Shantell, it is still one of our most favourite restaurants to celebrate special occasions or bring interstate and overseas visitors to. Everything about this little family owned vineyard and restaurant, is elegant and of very high standard. The menu is small, but superb and beautifully presented. The tasting platter with champagne, is the perfect starter, followed... More

This small family owned winery is a hidden gem in the Yarra Valley with a range of excellent wines and a fantastic restaurant. Open only for lunch it has plenty of free parking. Located almost at the very end of the valley proper off the Melba Highway the signs can be hard to spot. If driving from Melbourne start keeping... More

Never disappoints, the views, service, food, win and ambience. Truly one of the best attractions in the Valley. Have been going a few times a year since we discovered it 10+ years ago, and is ALWAYS on the list of places when in the Valley.

We had lunch at Shantell Vineyard for the second time. The dining room is very small, but lovely, with big windows overlooking the vineyards. We had the fish main with the recommended wine pairings. The fish was cooked to perfection and the white wines (one sauvignon blanc the second the chardonnay) were perfect for the main dish. I like this... More

I received this as a present as part of an online deal voucher. After a long drive there, we did have a picturesque view from our table on the balcony on a beautiful day. We started off with the sample platter. I needed my magnifying glass to see the food. Obviously deal patrons receive a limited menu & very different... More
