We booked lunch on a Sunday afternoon at 1pm. We arrived a little early to do a wine tasting which was excellent.
The staff in the cafe were a bit slow and unaware. We waited over 10 minutes to order (cafe wasn’t at all busy) and my partner had to get up to get them. Also our meals were delivered to the table next to us. However, staff were friendly.
The food itself was a mixed bag. The truffle bread was delicious and a big portion. Great value for money. The mini chimichangas (4 per serve) were excellent however the mushroom arancini (3 per serve) were dry.
The room is lovely as is the winery and vineyards and the wines themselves were excellent.

We have just enjoyed a delightful lunch at Lerida Estate Cafe. We were attracted by the excellent wines of the Canberra region so booked in for lunch early so we could linger to enjoy food and wine and still drive safely! We started with a wine tasting and the lovely (practical) people there were very comfortable with us splitting the tasting into two parts - part one bubbles and whites before our entree and part two with reds after.
The wine staff combined well to provide a great intro to Lerida wines. The sparking brut rose was brilliant and the Pinot Grigio and Amara wines absolutely delightful. We loved chatting over the reds and enjoyed the observations of the staff about them. We also got a lovely surprise at how delicious the Pinot Grigio botrytis was - definitely worth tasting. Despite our lean towards reds we were really taken with the whites and the roses here!
The food was brilliant and we had the rainbow trout and the pie and followed up with a decadent dessert each - pear and panacotta and the donut misu. Coffee was very good and the staff were lovely helpful and friendly.
Definitely worth a trip for. Canberra or a stop along the way in transit! (Only downside was that it was a little bit chilly so were layers.)’

Lerida Estate produces lovely wines and is housed in a Glenn Murcutt designed building. That means a world class Australian architect designed the seller door space, in which very good wines are sold. The restaurant food lets the experience down badly. We recently had lunch which could only be described as bistro food. And not particularly well executed bistro food and it seemed that they were going for quantity rather than quality or creativity. If this is to be an experience worthy of a trip to visit, the food needs reconsideration.

Just had coffee at Lerida Estate cafe and it was terrible! That’s if you don’t like brown water!
Had the assistant wine maker serving us at the cellar door and we both had difficulty hearing him. It not only was noisy but he didn’t project his voice properly so we had to keep asking him to repeat himself.
