Description: There is nothing like a long lunch surrounded by green rolling hills, blue skies and great service. Or a special dinner for two, or four, or twelve, or more, featuring great food, great wine and great conversation. Our award-winning Cupitt's Kitchen offers seasonal food with traditional French and English influences. Locally made wine and beer feature on our wine list. We use fresh local produce and follow the philosophies of the Slow Food Movement, believing that dining should be a source of pleasure. Rosie Cupitt is the Leader for Slow Food Shoalhaven. The restaurant is located in the heart of Cupitt's Winery, and combines rustic stone walls with contemporary design for a comfortable, sophisticated dining experience. We take food and wine very seriously, so that you can relax, exhale and enjoy.

“Jewel in the wilderness”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I have visited the south coast of NSW dozens of times over the past 30 years and the great disappointment has always been the lack of a decent restaurant. Cupitt's corrects that. The setting is ideal: among vinevards overlooking a lake. It is only minutes from the nearest town but it is like another world. The service is friendly without being over the top, the food is excellent (although some main courses would be enough for two or even three) and the estate grown wines very good. The owner has spent a lot of time in rural France -- and it shows with the emphasis on local produce. Our planned quick lunch turned into a long and happy afternoon.

“Great lunch!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Visited the winery with friends for a mid week lunch. Scenery is stunning, lovely grounds, very relaxing. This restaurant offers lunch as it should be! No rush, take your time, soak up the atmosphere of a great winery. Service was attentive, waitress knew the specials on offer and was able to answer any questions. Everyone's meals were cooked to perfection and with desserts sounding so delicious we could not say No. Mind you, didn't eat for the rest of the day!!! Will certainly be visiting again. Great wine as well.

“Francophiles will love it.....”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I have been visiting Cupitt's since it opened and it just gets better and better. We joined friends to celebrate the Queen's birthday Long Weekend (no, SHE wasn't there) at the Long Table Lunch. The day way perfect in every way, glorious winter sunshine, great food, wine, music and happy people. Rosie and her crew certainly know how to run a slick operation; go there, sit back, take in the expansive views, enjoy good food and be amazed. Call in and sample the wine over a cheese plate if you haven't time to dine, you'll be glad you did.

Thank you for your ongoing support throughout the years and for writing this review. We strive to keep getting better and better and it means a lot to have people recognise this. We were so thrilled with another sunny Winter Wine festival, there was such a great vibe out here I am glad you enjoyed it. We look forward to having you back soon. Throughout winter we are cooking Sunday roast in the Wood fired oven and have mulled wine all weekend. Stomach warming!

“Rural views and Cuppitt's food form a Symphony of sight and taste”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This was our first visit to Cupitt's and we were blown away by the gorgeous panoramic rural, mountain and wetland views. The set price mid-week lunch of 2 courses and a glass of wine was hearty French style country food of the best kind. Dare I say it but my spouse found the chocolate fondant quite orgasmic. We'll certainly be back for a meal with enough time to spare to also visit the attractive historic cellar door. Don't miss this opportunity for a truly memorable experience on the South Coast.
