Description: Claudia's is located within the Thunderbolt Farm winery. Its about 5 minutes drive from the main road, south of Stanthorpe. We lunched there on a warm sunny day and sat overlooking the hills - blinds were up and the views were lovely. Although the menu is international there is a German influence in many of the dishes and of course the beers. We order the Burgundy Beef pie which was very tasty, though the pie itself was a fairly small portion served with buttery delicious carrots and beans. My husband ordered the combo of German sausages and schnitzel which was served with a generous helping of pan fried potatoes and onions. The sausages were excellent and my husband also said the schnitzel was very good. Children's menu is good. My son was very happy with his fish and chips and complimentary icecream. Later he wandered around the herb gardens and watched the free range ducks waddle about. The higlight was the dessert of apple strudel. It was spicy and so delicious served with cream and icecream. Claudia's is off the beaten track but worth the small effort in getting there. Next time we hope to have time to taste some of the wines!

“Worth a visit for the sausages alone!”
Reviewed April 18, 2010

Off the beaten track, though not far you will find Claudia's Country Restaurant at the Thunderbolt Farm Estate Winery.

Went for lunch in March 2010. We are a family of foodies and were looking forward to some German fayre at Claudia's. I was a bit disappointed that menu wasn't more "German focused" though I guess they need to cater for all tastes.

We ordered the German sausages which were excellent, served with pan fried potatoes & onions and coleslaw and also Beef Burgundy Pie which although tasty was definitely on the small side and to my mind the sauce could have been slightly thickened and was served with buttery vegetables.

We had the apple strudel for dessert which didn't disappoint - nicely spicy with crisp pastry served with cream and icecream.

My husband was delighted with the choices of German beer on offer.

The weather was warm enough for the plastic blinds to be lifted so we were treated to some lovely views as well as watching a family of ducks waddle about on the farm.
