    Food was cold, Braised beef had no flavour tasted like sticky clag. Octopus char grilled over cooked tough. Coffee cold and was served way before dessert arrived I think that was forgotten. We sat in a draft cold was happy to get home to a hot cuppa not a pleasant experience

    This was my second time having lunch there and to be honest, I feel the the venue is very under staffed and the staff they do have need a-lot of training. The venue is stunning and the food was good. The acoustic music was loud and especially when you’re there to socialise with your guests. We had to talk loudly to hear each other talk. I would return, I’d hope in the future they

    We got the Eggplant and Pork Arancini Balls. The Arancini was literally like eating cat food and the Eggplant serving we were told was HUGE but was quite small and didn't have much flavour at all. Served with plain rice.........A little steep for $32

    Was lovely venue, food was good but the service was only average, do understand the difficulty with staffing at present, so a bit hard to gauge if they were understaffed or just not good service. Had a speakers above us so it was difficult to hold a conversation with people at other end of table due to music volume, overall good experience

    Mt Duneed Estate (Owner)

    Hi Annie, Thank you for your feedback. We do have limited staffing at the moment and new staff that require more training. We appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback and we hope to improve on your next visit.

    We had a group of 10 people so we had to have the $59 per head option. I think value for money wasnt there and the food was a bit disappointing; cold, dry chicken and not enough entrees between us. Staff were however very friendly and accommodating. Great ambience outside, inside dining area is very large and dark. We had a great day all the same

    We had lunch with great food and service in the Barrel Room. To be honest, we missed the amazing views you enjoy from the front of the Estate, But, views aside, we enjoyed a fabulous Birthday celebration with our friends and look forward to coming back!

    Mt Duneed Estate (Owner)

    Thanks Tess for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed your birthday celebration!

    Some of our party arrived about 15 min early and were asked to wait as the area was at Covid capacity - not a problem, but no offer of a drink while waiting - service was adequate but not attentive - food also was adequate but not outstanding - many changes from the printed menu without any consultation, and items advertised on shared platters missing but produced when queried- ambience was as good as you could get in a big open hall, but an enjoyable afternoon nonetheless!

    Service was slow, wasn’t told there was a 2 hour window. Asked if we wanted coffee, placed order and then waitress came back and said they couldn’t serve us coffee anymore and our seating was over, without warning and still had a glass full of Pinot noir. Drove all the way out from Melbourne. Served champagne in a chipped champagne glass, when I told the waitress I didn’t get an apology. Very underwhelmed for my 40th birthday lunch.

    Would love to see less cheese on the zucchini pizza. Other than that, delicious food and great service. ..................................

    The restaurant was dark and cold and the seats were cold. The others on our table received their meals however, mine arrived a good 5-7 minutes later. The food was very average. I had the lamb sliders and when it arrived the chips were luke warm leaning towards the cold side. The dishes were below average and not worth the value. Would not recommend this restaurant.

    A bit crowded with not a great choice of food - perhaps choose a smaller winery? Kitchen closed an hour after our booking and tired staff turned on the lights to give us the message to leave
