The restaurant is in an old sandstone building and we sat downstairs where the ambience was lovely although the seats were a little cafe style and the climate was rather cool - a lit fire would have added to the ambience and stopped us all feeling a little chilly. The service was pleasant and the food was delicious. We had pork belly bites, potato shells and prawn piggybacks for entrees and they were all yummy. The fish dishes were all good and I highly recommend the bouillabaisse.

We've been there a few times with the family and friends and have always had good food and service. We have always sat downstairs.

On a trip from Melbourne to Sydney we decided to try Picton which was just off the Hume Freeway.
We found a typical local scene of pubs and takeaway places but a local directed us to Vaby's which is opposite the railway station and has plenty of parking.
The interior was very clean and nicely laid out, the menu was broad, the table service excellent and the food was very, very good.
The price of the meal was below expectations and the drinks available covered all tastes.
Highly recommend Vaby's for lunch when in the area.

We've been here a few times and have always sat downstairs which is lovely and really adds to your dining experience, however on this occasion we sat upstairs and it made the whole dining experience unpleasant. You're basically sitting in a room with white walls green carpet and has white sheets sewn together to act as draping. The food is ok. The best thing about vaby's is the desserts and in particular 'go nuts' but expect the same quality you would get at your local pub.

I was not initially looking forward to eating at a franchise restaurant but once I got there I was pleasantly surprised. It is a cute little restaurant with a vintage cellar type feel, really at home in the country.

We couldnt fault the service. We were eating as a table of 16 and all of our drinks and food arrived together.

I ordered the eye fillet and it was absolutely perfect. The Bernaise sauce was delicious and the steak cooked perfectly.

Highly recommended.
