A quaint spot in a picturesque setting, lovely wines and the food was pretty good, top marks for their pav dessert with berry sauce. The service was nothing short of excellent, it seemed to be a Tracy show who was everywhere and never seemed to lose her effervescent smile.

Thank Punit M

We went to Melton Estate for a wine tasting as part of a tour, and had three wines with three tiny pieces of Australian cheese (it was supposed to be a wine and cheese tasting, but the portion size might not have been the winery's fault). We were served three wines, a Riesling, a Pinot Gris and a Pinot Noir.... More

We waited hour and half for our meal. Surprized that the mains only had meat no garnish (they were not cheap)

We had lunch at the winery and it was nice. The food was good although the menu was quite limited.the staff were accommodating in allowing a change in two of the mains. All in all the food and service were good. The restaurant is very nice and in a good location.

Lunch was booked at 1pm, for 6 our orders were taken around 1:30 and food was brought to table about 2:10pm. My cider was barely cold, waitresses were continually apologising saying that they were busy. We finished our first course at 2:40pm, did not bother with desert. Management should make sure enough staff are provided to give a satisfactory service.... More
