A beautiful spot in the Adelaide Hills with sweeping views across the vines, hills and valleys. The restaurant area is spacious. The deck also has tables which I have eaten at before but on this day it was too windy. Even though there are alot of hard surfaces and the tables were well sized I could still hear everyone at the table.
Food. Very Good. Not cheap, entrees in the 20s, mains in the 30s plus sides but good sized serves. All the starters and entrees we had were excellent. Again we were all pretty happy with the mains although I found the Gnocchi oversalted to my taste and a friend thought the duck a little chewy.
Service was very good not brilliant (had to ask for pepper and more water)
Overall fantastic place for a special lunch in an outstanding area of beauty
ps The Lois sparkling wine is yummy

We recently enjoyed a long and lazy lunch at The Lane Vineyard. We started the affair with a wine tasting session whilst waiting for the rest of the group to arrive - which is a great way to decide what you are going to drink with the meal and you save the $10 tasting fee if you eat!
Make sure you try the delightful Lois sparkling it really is a lovely drop!

The menu is quite extensive so to make things simple we selected the "let us feed you" which turned out to be a great option as you get to sample pretty much everything on the menu.

Its an easy 45 minute drive from the city up the freeway to Hahndorf - which is worth a trip of its own with all the "cellar doors" set up in the main st.

Enjoy some fine Adelaide Hills hospitality!

Had a great meal 18 months ago, faultess and best service. But how things have changed. Arrived 1320, by 1445 we still had only been served a starter and a bread roll. The starter, when it arrived, was excellent. But the service was very inattentive and poor. When I asked where our meals were (having noticed that people around us who had arrived after us had been served) we weretold "just being plated" 20 minutes later, when I asked again I was told "it'll be here in just a minute."

By now we were looking to see if the flowers on the table were edible. Looking around (because we were gnawing on our napkins) we noticed several weeks worth of dead flies on the window sill right in front of us.

We eat out at places from McDonalds to Penfolds, and for the 1st time EVER we walked out before the mains ever arrived. They were still scouring the hills for my lamb loin and my wife's duck ..... when we left. We cut our losses, paid up to where we had eaten and had a delightful meal somewhere else, sans drama and poor excuses.

What had gone wrong.....?

For a brief moment I thought your review was of another Restaurant as we do not have window sills or flowers on our tables. Fortunately our Restaurant Manager was able to verify your experience and apologises for not being able to meet your expectations.
