“90th Birthday Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We just celebrated my mothers 90th birthday party with Dina Hinton at Hinton's restaurant.
What a fantastic day we had. The food was superb as was the wine and the venue. There was a large number of us all served Al a Carte and this was carried out beautifully by the great team Dina has around her. Nothing was a problem from begiining to end and our every whim was catered to. The day started with Bubbles and canapes on arrival that were of the highest quality. The mains and desert just flowed thru with the same high standard.. The weather was wonderful and we were able to utilise the wonderful indoor outdoor flow to the gardens and tables that are outside. Thank you, to you Dina and your girls, for making our day perfect.

“Client Function”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

We recently held a client function at Hinton's and found the staff and venue fantastic, very friendly couldn't do enough to help us even though we changed our requirements a few times before the actual night it was no trouble at all. Everything ran as smoothly as it could delicious canapes served and drinks topped up promptly throughout the evening. I would definitely return to Hinton's for any future business requirements and I am looking forward to returning with my family and friends. Thanks Dina and team you run a great winery & restaurant.

“Great lunch overlooking the grape vines.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Thank you Dina and your wonderful staff for a lovely lunch, Dina was great to communicate with and got back to me quickly when I was trying to sort out numbers for our group booking. We sat outside on the verandah (out of the sun) but enjoying the fabulous view. (Grape vines of course) We all enjoyed the lovely lunch meal, plenty of choice and it was so reasonable. The restaurant was very clean as were the bathrooms. Its definitely a must for a relaxing lunch. Will definitely pay a return visit..

“Great Christmas staff function location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had our Christmas function for 38 staff at Hinton's in mid-December. The location is great, with easy parking. Everyone loved the food - the salmon seemed to be the most popular choice and there was even a vegetarian option and meals are gluten free. The wine is delicious also! The staff did a superb job, were very attentive and no one wanted for anything. They were even happy to have separate tabs for everyone, as work paid for meals, but not drinks. This is the second time we have had a function there, and once again they have delivered a great experience. It was easy to book the function and they kept in touch before the day to ensure everything was on track and were happy to invoice the company for the deposit and final payment. They even refunded a meal for a staff member who couldn't make it unexpectedly on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend Hinton's Restaurant to anyone.

“perfect for staff xmas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

we had our staff Christmas do at Hintons, Service was great, and meals were amazing. They gave us opportunity to select our own menu for a large group which was great, considering our different dietary requirements. My salmon was perfect. Facilities were ideal, we had our own space but didn't feel shut away like some other places. would highly recommend.
