Loved everything about Source Dining. Food was just beautiful and the story behind the 'source' of it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and already looking forward to when we can go back again! Thank you.

a first class restaurant with a wonderful array of meals from which to choose. We have been going to this restaurant since it originally opened as Annie Smithers' and it has lost none of the great class of meals and service that it has always promised.

From the point of booking, I was unsure about bringing a newborn to a restaurant, but received a phone call from the restaurant allaying... More

We walked by and peered at the menu as the restaurant was closing. A staff member came to the door and warmly mentooned that there was time for a last seating should we like to join them. That solved our decision for a meal. Service was excellent with service staff explaining where our wines and food ingredients came from. The... More

We happened upon this restaurant a bit by accident as we were passing through Kyneton and are very happy we found it. The food was fantastic (very GF friendly), the service terrific, and the building itself was absolutely lovely. If you are looking for a very high quality dining experience in regional Victoria then this is definitely worth your time... More

We had the most amazing lunch at this gorgeous restaurant. The service and food could not be faulted. All four of us enjoyed everything from scallops to goat cheese soufflé to corn risotto. All yum 👌 what a gem in beautiful country Victoria.

Four of us for Sunday lunch were greeted for a birthday with good wishes and a small complimentary glass of bubbles. We had a variety of dishes and they were all delicious and a feast for the eyes. We also received a cute little amuse bouche and lovely sugar coated black current jelly with coffee that were a nice touch... More
