We have been here a few times for lunch. The food was nice and the views are beautiful ask for an outside table. Service was great our waitress was sweet and attentive (we accidentally caused her to smash some plates but she took it really well). Recommend this restaurant for lunch. We haven't tried dinner yet.

We all went as a large group of six, including children, to this lovely winery for a special birthday lunch. The view was magnificent and the food was fabulous. Highly recommend this as a lovely spot to stop for a meal and some fine wine to try and to purchase.

This has to be one of the best Vineyard Restaurants in Australia. Located on top of the Mount the views are superb in any direction. The staff are top market and the food is top quality, well worth the trip and money. Entrée of Pan fried black tiger prawns were delicious. The Main of Venison and the slow roasted lamb... More

The food is good. Friendly staff. The restaurant is located in Borrodell Vineyard but the cellar was closed during our visit. We ordered red wine. However, they do not serve red wine of their vineyard but still it is from the Orange region. There is also cherry picking on our visit. So it could serve three purposes in one visit.... More

Fresh, good, honest food. Plating excellent. Quantity and quality deeply satisfying. Restaurant, being small ,are able to assist, adjust with special requests or needs. Did notice two other small functions/groups happening at the same time in another part of the winery/restaurant so did not impede on our personal experience. Sitting outside the views spectacular overlooking vineyards, fruit trees, valley in... More

Serendipitous find. Sat outside under the dappled shade of a plane tree. Shared the blue cheese soufflé/fondue - perfect - sad faces caused by the lack of a spoon or bread to scoop up the delicate chess fondue sauce. Soon rectified, but for that type of dish we shouldn't need to ask. The bread was crusty and perfect for wiping... More

Description
Sister's Rock Restaurant is a family-run restaurant, located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, overlooking the Pinot Noir block. Enjoy the food & wine in a venue with glorious views over the slopes of the Towac Valley to Orange in the distance. Our philosophy of food has developed around a love of growing produce on the property and serving it straight to the plate, a true reflection of the seasons. We are a heritage apple and plum orchard, vineyard, grow cider apples for our own traditional cider and black Perigord truffles. All meals are accompanied by Borrodell cool-climate, award-winning wines. The menu changes regularly according to seasonal availability. Please phone to discuss the current menu.
