Venue is superb with the best view of Coriolanus bay on a sunny day Atmosphere is conducive to stay all day Food service is slightly, but then the winery is packed people are buying wine and several people are trying to do a tasting as well Food is of a fine bistrot standard I don't understand why all wines are...

Great views over the bay, watching people roll in via helicopter for the lunch in the restaurant. The cafe on the couple of occasions which I have been has been very, very busy. Great ambiance. Food I think was okay but the chicken salad I had just needed something extra to make it more satisfying!

A family member booked a table for lunch time public holiday. I must be honest and compliment the bistro on the excellent outlook, it is a lovely setting with reaching views over the bay. The service is average and orders are placed at the counter. I ordered a fish and chips which was expensive to start and then had a... More

Wow, what a view. The food was nice, but the stand out appeal is the view. Go there on a nice summer night and it looks stunning. Lots of parking. Didnt try the wine as we were there for coffee. Must be good as whenever we drove past the car park was full.

The food was delicious. Beautifully cooked and well presented. The views across the bay to melbourne are fantastic. Service was a little slow and the wine list biases to Jack Rabbit labels - a few more other selections would be great

When you've got the best location in the area, why not maximise the options? Definitely worth the visit but booking early is advisable especially in the restaurant. The cellar door is housed in the cafe which offers a more family friendly option, but that too requires booking. We managed to secure a booking for lunch in the restaurant mid week,... More

Always love visiting my favourite winery close to home. Have only dined in the restaurant but the cafe also looks nice & a lot more casual if that's what you prefer near the wine tasting. Sauvignon Blanc is beautiful & crisp & always end up purchasing extra bottles to take home. The restaurant's food is always exceptional, wine superb, excellent... More

We went there today to celebrate a birthday and found it to be very overcrowded to the point that we could only leave our chairs if the people at the next table stood up.It was hot and very noisey and this was not helped by the numerous helicopters that landed on the grounds just below were we were seated.
