Visited here on a tour. Most impressed with quality of food and paired wines. Room was very modern but still welcoming with a couple of open fires. Staff were pleasant and meals were prompt. I felt that if we were guided to a wine tasting...area with prices before or after the meal, our party would have certainly bought some bottles of wine. Would definitely recommend but not cheap.More

Fantastic food, wines and service. Dined here for my partners birthday mid week while visiting Stanthorpe. Octopus entree, cooked to perfection. Lamb cutlet main had great pairing of flavours to complement the lamb….brilliant, alongside a local glass of Cabernet Sauvignon…. Exquisite!

We stopped here for lunch as part of a wine tour. It was a fabulous lunch with matching wines. We had someone who need a gluten free meal, not a problem. A special gluten free meal came out for her. If you are in Stanthorpe,...you should make the time to have lunch here.More

Visited here in a group of 14 doing a winery tour. Had a fabulous lunch, matched wines and a great private room with excellent service. As a training facility this is very impressive.

This restaurant provided an excellent lunch-time dining experience in every respect. The venue itself is modern and architecturally beautiful and set in a charming landscape with a pond. The service, food and wines were excellent. Highly recommended.

Food was amazing. Wines from their vineyard were excellent. Ambience and view stunning. We had a range of starters fo share and then an entree each. Meals were large and tasty. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We enjoyed a 3 course dinner here on a recent trip. The staff were friendly, the food divine and we really enjoyed the experience. Make sure you book in advance as this is a popular spot.

Friendly staff. Serves gourmet style meals. Must book as unable to walk in and get table. Food was well presented but not a big choice. Quite expensive for a University restaurant.
