The funny thing about beautiful places is that they manage to compensate for small disappointments - and there were only minor disappointments at Green Olive.

We arrived just after 3pm hoping to miss the lunch time crowds which by all accounts we did. We ordered two glasses of the Kelpie Ridge Pinot Noir and 5 tapas dishes: honey pumpkin salad, beetroot bruschetta, roast lamb backstrap, minted lamb meatballs and the soft chevre cheese plate. This came to a total of approx $42 per person, which I thought was pretty decent value up until the dishes arrived. While the tapas dishes were very tasty, we thought they were far too small for what we paid and certainly not worth $30 per person (the wine was $10 a glass). The meatballs were a stand out for us - just a pity there were four the size of marbles for us to sample...

Outside of the food, the service was pretty quick although the staff did seem generally flustered by the amount of people they had to serve. The vineyard itself is really beautiful though, and once we'd finished our meal, it was lovely to have a bit of a wander and soak up the fresh Mornington air. There were quite a few families there (I'm guessing the horse rides and trampoline are a big drawcard) so it wasn't the most peaceful it could have been, but overall it was certainly a lovely experience.

Owners need to seriously take note of these reviews. Meatballs were raw in the centre, food was not chef quality any average cook could make these dishes. There was not enough portions for 2 as tapas is a sharing concept. There were no exotic or expensive ingredients so why the exorbitant prices?. Main ingredient was bread..?? Such a beautiful property but left feeling hungry and worst of all felt ripped off!

Great outdoor area. Very relaxing for a casual snack. Great service too. Well worth a visit. Great products to take home too - try the capsicum relish - yum!

Had a great time with chef Herman who not only answered every single question about how to make the perfect sausage - but made the class also very fun. Everybody in the class (~10 people) managed to get amazing lamb sausages done - the meat was sourced from their own lamb farm at the Green Olive. The course was finished with some wine tasting and then we got to taste our own sausages.
