Because it was highly ranked on Tripadvisor and because we were in the neighbourhood we dropped by for dinner. Unfortunately is was closed till next year. We were very disappointed because according to the info TA it would be open.

Eyed this place as I planned my Yarra Valley trip. As I was staying nearby it was perfect as then I could drink as much as I want. The restaurant itself is huge. Industrial & modern architecture with high ceilings & dim lighting. However still casual overall. There is also an al fresco area overlooking the street. Service is friendly... More

On the balcony with our dogs enjoying the shade of the trees we enjoyed a wonderful lunch and enjoyed a wine tasting with the lunch. This is the best way to try wines - with food. Fantastic place.

Went for dinner with a group of 5 pre wedding. Wine tasting to start was great, then onto delicious pizzas and amazing cocktails using their white and red vermouth. Food so good we went again a few nights later. We were early and they found us a spot in the barrel room for espresso martinis before our dinner, so accommodating!... More

Just dropped in for a quick beer after a motorbike ride with a mate. The seating area looks very impressive. We didn't eat anything just dropped in for a drink. Sat outside in the sun overlooking the main road. Good view. Beer was typically high priced , pint of local brew was $12.70

We dropped in here for a glass of wine. Even better that you can taste the wines before ordering what you want! This ended up in having Dinner with some excellent food including a fantastic Fetta Dip with Spicy Carrot. The service was great. What was going to be a casual drink of wine turned into a very enjoyable evening.

Went for dinner and had their moscato, it was really easy to drink and fell in love with it. Their other food such as pizza was great. The dessert was not too bad. The overall ambiance was also great.

My friend and i loved this place! The smell of fresh pastries and bread was delightful as you enter. Fabulous Pinot Gris and signed up for the $50 voucher to get some gorgeous wine. Staff are fabulous and loved reading the papers and chilling out on the sofa!

I was recommend to come and try this place out by family. Wow! was not disappointed at all. A very lively atmosphere in the restaurant with plenty going on. You can taste their wines at the bar with experienced knowledgeable staff. We sat outside on the deck which was amazing. This seems to be the most popular area so I... More

We have been here and had pizza before which had always been nice. We decided to go for something different this time. We had arancini balls which were delicious but no sauce just the tiniest of lemon wedge served with it. We then decided on a red curry. Well for $26 we were served what looked like a small microwaved... More
