    We sat outside under the shade of the euclaypts. It was a sunny day on the cool side. Unfortunately, we were on the closest table to the Musician and it was very noisy when he started up at entrees!.

    What a hidden gem, it really pays to investigate and not go to just the main wineries. So relaxing and wonderful food. Staff were so obliging. Pinot Gri such a winner.

    Enjoyed our lunch at Hickinbotham. We sat inside - music was a little loud but ok. Staff, service & food were very good. Great views, would certainly recommend & look forward to dining there again.

    Not sure why we couldn’t book the time we wanted as the restaurant was almost empty. The place is rundown and a blast from the past. Food very ordinary although wine by the glass was good.

    We really enjoyed our lunch with our friends at your restaurant. Our waiter was attentive, helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was pleasant and we were not aware of other diners.

About the restaurant

The name Hickinbotham boasts a legacy in wine making since 1936.

Wines are grown, made and bottled onsite and more recently [2006] the Hix microbrewery was

established with brewer and 4 th generation son, Jake Hickinbotham, brewing award winning craft

beers all year round.

Our new addition- MINTARO restaurant at Hickinbotham offers a relaxed a la carte menu

showcasing the best local produce available and compliments the award winning wines and craft

beers we are known for.

The Mornington Peninsula is home to many passionate local farmers and small businesses, by

supporting local growers and artisan food producers, we are promoting the growth of local

economy, reducing land miles and offering our customers something very special.

Mintaro is a historic town in Clare Valley, Adelaide, known for producing high quality Mintaro slate,

still the oldest operating quarry in Australia.

Our fireplace is made of Mintaro slate, it was salvaged from a Victorian Brighton mansion back in

1994 and dates back to the late 1800’s.

In honour of its history we decided to name our restaurant MINTARO.

We are organic with our lifestyle, we encourage you to Escape to Hickinbotham and lose yourself in

the rustic surrounds that we call home.
