We loved the atmosphere, the staff and the food.
This winery is an hours drive from Melbourne and its a bit of the beaten track in Druin but so worth the visit. The drinks are very reasonably priced and the meal is also extremely well priced. We sat down to the most delicious bread l have ever eaten (and l bake my own) served drizzled with oil and came with two different dips, w asked for more dips.
We were then provided with a platter of vegetables and salad and the meat came out served on swords and was carved off at your table. We sampled everything. There was fish (barramundi) squid, lamb, pork, lamb, beef and choritzos, once evrything was tasted the waitress came back and asked what your favourite was and started slicing more of your choices.
You are given a card that is red one side which you show when you are full and green on the other which is face up and the food just keeps on coming until you either turn over your card or ay enough.
We brough a birthday cake and were charged $2.00 for every person at the table, but we were told this when we rang.
We will definitely be going back here to eat More information can be found on the website.

We love to eat out locally but living in the hills we are not spoilt for choice with great restaurants. Brandy Creek tapas were delicious and well worth the extra travel further out! It was the perfect Sunday lunch and ever dish was impeccably presented and every mouthful a taste sensation!
We have been once before for the Paella feast day, which was also good but more of a buffet style than a la carte. Would highly recommend.

We have been to Brandy Creek wines and View Cafe a few times now. We have been to the Brazilian nights as well as for tapas lunches. We look forward to trying the paella one day soon. The food is fabulous with great views and service is to match. We have recently been accompanied by my sister in law who loved the whole experience and she is very fussy. Highly recommend as a must visit if you are in West Gippsland or from
Melbourne as its not that far.

We lunched on a rather hot day and enjoyed the slight breeze on the deck overlooking the vines. It was great for the kids as they could freely run around without bothering anyone.

For the kids (aged 7), though that's where it ended. There were no kid friendly options on the menu. We ordered them potatoes bravas with toppings on the side and they were not impressed with being presented with a plate of potatoes. The tomato sauce with these tasted decidedly on tin can, the mayo was just that - flavourless and oily.

Mayonaisse was our biggest grip with almost all of the dishes coming with some bland variation of same. There was nothing to cut through the oily richness - no caper/lemon/gherkin/onion - no flavour. Garlic bread came out as two large chunks of bread with a handful of roasted garlic on the side to squeeze on yourself. A nice tough in theory, but again, the kids wouldn't eat it and I had a little trouble with the size of the chunks.

The orange blossom salad read well, but was sadly let down by the heavy handed addition of orange blossom water, which is very strong and needs to be handled with care. The standout for me was the crispy duck - a confit duck leg & thigh which had been fried to crisp the skin.

I will give it another try as I have friends who rave about the food, so am assuming it was bad choices on our part. The paella nights may be worth a visit for the outlook alone

Love this place, the Tapas are amazing, the wines are too. We try to get a visit in once a month and have turned lots of friends on to it as well. We visited for my birthday with my best friend and her partner and tried nearly all of the tapas! (Well, quite a few anyway!) We have visited for the Paella feast also and this is well worth doing, just for the spectacle of it and the paellas are delicious (but there is SO MUCH). Staff are lovely and as an added bonus when you purchase take away wine (the 2008 Tempranillo is a must have) you receive a free bottle of liquer/dessert wine and this too is delicious!
