Booked on the restaurant website on a Saturday afternoon for 7 pm which was an available time. Received confirmation, and then after 5 pm a telephone call from the restaurant informing me that they were fully booked!! When I suggested they needed to fix their website so that bookings were accurate the person said yes - that's it! No apologies... More

What a wonderful lunch we had! A beautiful location, both inside the restaurant & the magnificent view as you eat. And the best chocolate dessert (blood orange & chocolate terrine) that I have ever had, which is high praise from a lifelong chocoholic/dark chocolate fanatic! We had a 3 course lunch, which seemed daunting in the lead up, but the... More

The food was very tasty - no worries - providing you were a midget! For $37? I got a steak which you could sit comfortably on a 50 cent piece. Served with gravy on a 50 cent piece of bread and nothing else on a rather large plate. Our table of 4 was served two courses and each person at... More

With a menu to cater for everyone's taste and views to die for, this Sunday's drive to Coldstream was rewarded with a gem amongst the vines. My first trip to The Vines won't be my last. Entree started with a classic Thai style calamari and was prepared beautifully and was thick and tender! We saw it served on other tables... More

What a spectacular venue! We attended a family 60th at Vines Helens Hill and loved every minute of it. The view was just beautiful from the dining room and the kids had a ball playing on the grassy lawn whilst the adults mingled. There was a separate dance space and the vintage photo booth on the lawn just topped off... More

i recently had lunch at Vines Restaurant and it was delicious. The food was fresh, cooked to perfection and the dishes all sounded so great. I went for the chicken dish and I have to say the chef could not have done a better job. The restaurant is beautifully decked out, the view is simply wonderful, floor to cieling windows... More

The modern restaurant on the top of the hill commands stunning views across the Yarra valley. Staff were welcoming and attentive We had a three course lunch comprising delicious shared antipasto then I had the rabbit casserole with olive infused mash... More

The restaurant is designed so that most tables have a wonderful view of the valley. We had a very nice three course meal with a glass of wine to accompany the food. The service was very good and we came away very full. Nice place for a couples lunch.
