This is a beautiful winery with a long entrance and away from traffic. The views are great especially whilst having lunch and wine and desert of course. I highly recommend it.

Really enjoyed ourselves on a spur of the moment visit. Had intending dining at the restaurant which was closed for a private function, but the House of Jack Rabbit did not disappoint. Value for money offerings with generous serves and many dishes/platters suitable for sharing. Would highly recommend the Pork Belly and Raspberry Chocolate "dessert/cake", which was a nice finish...

Had a great day out tasting and grazing amongst the vines here for a 60th birthday. Some of the wines are great and some not so much but expected with such a wide range. Food wise I should have stuck with my first instinct and ordered the pork belly which when it came out looked amazing and by all reports... More

The setting of the House of Jack Rabbit was very good with a great view of the bay and Melbourne in the distance. It is bar service, you order at the bar and they deliver your food to the table. The servers were all very friendly and the Pinot Noir was excellent. The lamb burger and fish and chips were... More

Dinner on Saturday night at the Cafe - sitting on the deck with an awesome view. Wonderful place to eat on a nice evening. Food was spot on. Venue a bit noisy with a group next to us having fun but that was ok. Really lovely evening, staff are great, well trained. Attentive but not all over you. Recommended.

We had lunch here today with another couple, had a table by the window, with lovely views to the bay. The food could not have been better and the waitress was very good, helpful, smiling and the service could not have been better. Not cheap but worth every penny. Highly reccomend
