“This restaurant just gets better and better”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

De Bortoli Winery and Restaurant is in a picturesque setting. We sat on a balcony and listened to the birds in the nearby trees as we ate. Service was excellent. We were given time to enjoy a relaxed experience but a waiter appeared whenever needed. The antipasta put most Italian restaurants to shame with its high quality ingredients and variety of ingredients. De Bortoli's wine is very good and good quality wine is served by the glass. We finished our visit by going to the wine tasting room and buying a fine liqueur. Cheeses, nibbles and souvenir gifts are also available for purchase.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback. It sounds like you had a wonderful time dining on our balcony... a great way to enjoy a lovely Spring afternoon. We hope you visit us again soon and indulge in more cheese and wine from our cellar door also.

“Great food, great view”

We had lunch at De Bertoli and the food was beautiful, the staff really friendly and knew each dish on the menu. the roasted potatoes with garlic and rosemary were fabulous. It is definately a place we will go back to again.

“Enjoyable Fathers Day meal in beautiful location”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lovely four course set lunch including fresh bread, olives and prosciutto with delicious lasagna and ice cream for the kids (although they would have preferred more than one choice for mains although I'm sure they would have offered if I asked for something else). The tiramisu was especially good, just wish coffee was included.

Service was excellent although with young children I would've preferred if the courses followed quicker.

What I enjoyed about it was that although the food and atmosphere was first class, it was also child friendly with high chairs and a great little playground outside with a stunning view. You can also picnic there as long as you buy wine at their cellar.

We had a great day thank you!

“Lovely ambience & good food”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by this place for lunch while on our way to Mt Buller. While the main course was pretty ordinary (I don't quite remember what we ordered), we absolutely enjoyed the roasted potatoes with rosemary & garlic. These have got to be the best roasted potatoes we've ever had. Thumbs up for making a simple side dish so delectable that it completely obscured your main courses. Lol! The service was good & the ambience was nice. I would return just for those potatoes!

“Great food and atmosphere as well as wines”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Have been here several times - we return most times we are in the area. The restaurant is divine - the food and service are always impeccable, and we love the wines. The wine tasting area is great too - the matched wine and cheese tastings are one of our favorite activities in the area.
