    We had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived at Jack Rabbit. We were greeted by smiling staff and seated promptly. We were given a fabulous table with great views. The staff were extremely helpful with explaining the menu and answering our questions. The food was absolutely delicious, we chose three small serves and two sides to share which was great as we got to sample a range of dishes. The sides are also amazing. we shared a dessert and sampled several glasses of their wines. It was a wonderful lunch that was picture perfect and made more so by the professional and engaging team . Definitely give it a go if you are in the area. To be honest I would drive from Melbourne as I was so impressed with the quality.

    This restaurant continues to improve and has built upon its unrivalled views and excellent service with fine food and high class atmosphere. The only criticism is that the large areas of wood and glass can result in noise when the restaurant is busy.

    Restaurant food & hospitality were amazing but being able to arrive via Geelong Helicopters made the day. Views across the bay to the You Yangs were brilliant!

    The Octopus Entre... it was one little leg of octopus swimming in caviar (we left all the caviar) ... if you want caviar the star... you should have stated that... no octopus and all caviar... secondly... we waited over an hour for our mains. And again... how purple can a dish be? Barely a steak... purple carrots, beetroot and purple puree. We also tried the pork belly entre. Absolute no need for that gingerbread and the mushrooms were nice, how ever hard to chew... the plating of every meal we had.... made absolute no sense. We order thinking we will get a star of a dish... and you guys have got it so wrong. The best part was the roasted chats. What has happened?

    Amazing presentation with an equally amazing vista. Highly recommended. A velvety Jack Rabbit Shiraz with dinner completed a great night!

    Service, staff and food excellent. Way above expected service and quality of food. One minor criticism, due to being full of patrons, bit noisy

    On arrival we were greeted by friendly & welcoming staff. Staff were very attentive throughout the evening.. Slow cooked duck - yum. Had a wonderful dinner experience looking out over the panoramic view. Will be back to try the other menu choices.

    We have been to jack Rabbit restaurant several times and always had amazing food. Today was disappointing. My friend and I both ordered the fish, it was rather dry and the bed of sorghum it was on an unfortunate experiment, rather woody

    Excellent service, top-notch food and great service. On an extremely busy day, we could not fault anything about the restaurant. It's got a great view with food and service to match. Go there.

    A wonderful lunch of duck and my friend was very impressed with so many gluten free offerings. A great venue, the view was obstructed by smoke haze but these things happen. We’ll be back

    Views, food, service were superb - just a bit too noisy though - lots of big tables and some noisy kids - if it’s tranquility over a delicious lunch this isn’t it. But if you like frenetic, lots happening lunch then fantastic!

    Innovative menu, with terrific quality produce backed up by attentive, friendly service. A great spot to have a yummy food experience with spectacular views. My only criticism is that the restaurant is big, busy and is wall to wall hard surfaces, so the noise level is beyond comfortable for conversation. Suggest some more thought about using acoustic panels in the restaurant to really make this a superior experience.

    Food was delicious. It was very noisy, but to be expected this time of year . Staff were very helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend. The lamb dish was tender, and the side dish of pumpkin, delicious. Thank you.

An essential destination of The Bellarine. Jack Rabbit restaurant offers people the ultimate when only a brilliant regional experience will do. The unrivalled panoramic views across the bay to Melbourne, the You Yangs and Geelong are just the beginning. This winery has forged a reputation as a gastronomic showpiece for The Bellarine alongside a stable of sophisticated cool climate wines.

The calibre of this iconic destination is reinforced by an ongoing string of awards. Jack Rabbit Vineyard landed double gold in the 2019 Victorian Golden Plate Awards – both the state wide Golden Plate as well as the gong for Best Contemporary Restaurant Dining. These accolades followed Jack Rabbit being crowned ‘Best Restaurant in a Winery’ as well as ‘Best Tourism Restaurant’ (Victoria & Tasmania) in the prestigious Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Awards earlier in 2019.

Winemaker, Nyall Condon has an exceptional history of excellence in all aspects of vineyard establishment, winery installation and wine making in South Australia and Victoria. Nyall’s approach to wine making is very much about minimal intervention and retaining the natural characters of each varietal – the fruit is the hero.
