“World class food and beautiful setting at Bluestone Lane Estate Winery”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Set amongst the lovely Bluestone Lane vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula, this restaurant is worth a visit. Great service and first class food made for a very enjoyable lunch. We started in the wine cellar for a tasting, always a great idea so one can decide what to accompany lunch with. Grant was like a one arm paper hanger, he looked after 3 small groups with a knowledgeable and professional manner as he took us through the entire portfolio! No charge for this tasting and lots of interesting facts about the wines to be learnt. The best picks for us were the Pinot Grigio, and the Pinot Meunier - normally found only in Champagne, a red varietal similar to Pinot Noir, like a smaller cousin really, delicate, floral, just wonderful! We finished with a dessert Pinot Noir which was so good we bought a few bottles to take away for a rainy day. The restaurant is open and modern, with full views out onto the vineyards. Service was attentive and friendly. They try and source locally grown organic veges, and local Wagu beef - 3 of us went for this option and we were rewarded with great flavours and presentation. The chef is also the owner and happy to chat at the end of the meal which is always nice. We will certainly be back one day soon.

“An amazing venue for a wedding.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding here & the food was amazing! Definitely the best wedding food I've ever had. Big compliments to the chef!
Staff were very attentive, but almost a little too attentive, wanting to take away glasses before we had used them.
Overall, a fabulous evening & I hope to visit again soon.

“What a Gem!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Veraison Restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was professional and friendly. We decided on the special lunch menu and, as there was a group of us, ordered many of the dishes on offer. They were, without exception, magnificent. Started off our lunch with a wine tasting - again a great experience. The dining area overlooks the vineyard - a truly beautiful setting. We had a 12 month old child with us and she was made to feel special and welcome. We will certainly be returning and spreading the word.

“What can I say just wow!!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Five of us recently visted Veraison for lunch. We had the 3 couse set lunch. The food and wine were absolutely delicious.
The service was fantastic. Our server was warm, inviting and nothing was a trouble.
We had a perfectly relaxing afternoon and could not fault the service, food or establishment.
Do yourself a favour and visit this wonderful restaurant.
