We had a group of just over 30 for my birthday over the weekend at Shadowfax. There were a number of options for group bookings, and we chose to have a selection of tapas and some pizzas. Pretty much every aspect of the afternoon exceeded my expectations. The food was excellent, the staff really looked after us and it is really a very pleasant place to sit for a long afternoon. For example I don't normally get good coffee anywhere other than Melbourne's better cafes and restaurants but the barista here really knew how to make a good coffee.
We chose to sit outside which meant we missed the chance to see the live music being performed inside. The music, a very good girl vocalist and a guitarist, was however played through reasonable speakers to the outside area and it was very nice.
I look forward to returning just with my family.

Either sit indoors or out, have live music, food is great and a good opportunity to taste local wines.

We went here as a large group. Wood fired pizzas, salt and pepper calamari & italian doughnuts were the order of the day and everything was fantastic- service was fine, despite the fact the restaurant was full inside and out. Only complaint - the band playing inside was way too loud to have a conversation without shouting at each other, great music just too loud.

My wife and decided to take in a weekend recently at werribee mansion. We were advised that we must do a wine tasting a Shadowfax winery whilst there.
We walked down to the winery, was greeted by a young waiter and asked if we were eating. We exclaimed we were only here for a wine tasting. He then escorted us to the wine tasting bar. We were then greeted by an older fellow possibly late forties early fiftiesf who rushed us through the tasting. Didn't care about our tastes or didn't ask where we were from or anything. It was the quckest and worst wine tasting i have ever experienced. Shocking! Putting it mildly.
For all travellers and lovers of good wine forget about this place. There service is terrible which i guess is also a reflection of their wine. Thumbs down!!!

The wine was very nice but felt that we were rushed through our wine tasting experience. Not a friendly feel.
