“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My friends and I went to the winery on Saturday afternoon and will definitely be returning. We were lucky as it wasn't busy so we got a park outside easily. We were met with a warm greeting from one of the many pleasant staff members.

The tasting was fantastic, they have a $5 tasting charge however if you buy a bottle they take it off the price. There is seating inside and out, since it was a beautiful cool sunny afternoon we opted to sit outside.

Our waiter was a young male whose name I wish I could remember to thank him for such lovely service. We ordered a cheese platter and it was late coming out to us so we got a round of complimentary drinks.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

My daughter booked here for a family do 4 to 6 weeks in advance for about 20 of us. We arrived around 12.30. Got fed after 3.00pm. I'll also add, this was a set menu, so they knew we where coming and knew what we were having. OK it was a warm busy day. But i will not accept this.

“Gorgeous hidden gem”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A lovely little 'casual' place in the bush to relax, wine and dine. We had a lovely shared lunch with very good wine. Friendly service. Lots of ambiance.

“Great wine and food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

As guests of the Mansion Hotel and Spa, we were given a complimentary wine tasting at Shadowfax. The wines were top quality, and came in abundance! We also shared a tasing plate which was delicious and of high quality. The cafe had a great atmosphere with a female singer.
This place is perfect for a lunch, where you could graze all afternoon with a fabulous glass of wine!
