Description: Vinery Foods Our Story. Why shouldn’t your neighbourhood restaurant and bar have a drinks list to challenge anything in the city? Maybe 300 wines and over 200 beers, aperitifs, spirits and liqueurs is overdoing it a bit, but what the heck? Especially when there are so many winemakers, growers and mum and dad vineyards whose livelihood depends on producing terrific wine. It means every drop on the list is there because it’s drinking well now, the grape variety is a wonderful expression of the region or the wine is simply a great match with a particular menu item. When it comes to food, our Chef’s very particular about seasonality and keeping the menu fresh. One week’s the steak’s aged grass fed Sirloin, the next Hangar. (You don’t see it on menus too often, there’s only one per beast.) Squid or Octopus, Barramundi or Bluefin, it’s his call, as is every accompaniment from bottarga to guanciale, seaweed to ponzu. At least we have the wines to go with them. And don’t ever be shy to say ‘Hey, Joe, what’s drinking well, what goes with what?’ Especially when you see words like Carmenere, Zibibbo and Greco di tufo amongst the Sauv Blanc and Shiraz. So feel free to enjoy a drink, a small plate, go the full extravaganza or just pop in late for a nightcap. And if you want ice with your wine, that’s OK too. We do as we please so you can, too. Welcome to Vinery Foods. Now, what can we get you?

With chandelier and different seating styles setting the atmosphere for eclectic dining. Wines from different areas of the world are available by the glass (changing often), and a range of food from panini to fine dining....a place not to be missed!!!! Casual, classy and well priced.
Thankyou Joe for your hospitality and obvious interest in wine and food.

I live in the area but had not come here until recently but I have to say I've been very pleasantly surprised. The wine list is excellent and the food is pretty good too. I've ink had the small plates but none have disappointed. Would recommend a visit

Great service, relaxed but not careless - great team who work really hard to make your night awesome. Terrific food - fusion Lebanese Australian French cuisine with a deft hand that understands balance and flavour contrast. Incredible wine list - this is a little hidden gem in suburban Annandale - get here if you can

Heard of this cozy restaurant from a friend who insisted I partake in a night of Malbec. The wines were fantastic and I must say the food was even better!
Congrats on a serving tasty dishes with interesting examples of a versatile variety to say the least.
Loved the sparkling Malbec for which my glass seemed never to run out!
Well done and thanks...a gem!
