    The menu had an excellent variety of dishes, and the chef executed the dishes well. A few small things I’d change to each dish but small changes, overall I preferred to our lunch at Jack Rabbits bistro. Lovely wine to pair with the food. Reasonably priced, we’ll be back.

    For a small winery, the service was slow. We waited over an hour for one plate to be served, we ordered fries which were not delivered but we had plenty of food without the fries.

    Food and wine great. Unfortunately the staff failed to tell us that the kitchen would be closing when we were ordering and we had mentioned to the waiter that we’d likely want to be ordering more. Very disappointing as we were enjoying the food and the atmosphere. The lady who informed us the kitchen was closed was rather rude.

    Really enjoyed lunch. Selection and preparation of food offerings were great, they even went out of their way to make a small cheese platter for 2, which wasn't on the menu. Service was excellent. Staff well trained, friendly and helpful. Very conscious of covid requirements and managing the restaurant accordingly. We'll be back again, soon!

    Staff were rude and short with us, asked repetitively if we were ready to order and we felt really rushed. No children’s menu so ordered 3 bowls of chips for 3 children. They brought out 2 bowls and when we followed up about the third, they said they had put 3 bowls worth in 2 bowls and they had run out of bowls.

    A beautiful setting with cosy outdoor arrangements for these tough Covid times. Service was prompt and efficient and the wine delicious. We've been before and so enjoyed it we returned with friends. While the food was tasty and plentiful, it was not quite to the standard as previous dining experience. The standout was the Pork Belly Bao Buns. Not to be deterred, we will return.

    A great location and has a lots of potential...Unfortunately there was only 1 waitress/manager on for the day, we were a table of 10 and there were 6 other tables full at the same time. On the website it mentions $35 Friday lunches. We were told on the day this was not available due to the chef being unable to do the shared plates for 10 in the 1.5hr time frame. This is fine but it shouldn't be displayed on the website and/or we should've been informed about this before the booking. Aimee (manager) did really well considering she was on her own and clearly stressed, service was disappointing and needed 1 extra person to help. Because of this we weren't offered dessert or coffees. The food was fine but lacked passion and attention to detail (we ordered pork buns for all of us and only 9 were sent out). Banks Road Winery has a lovely outlook and a relaxed atmosphere but the hospitality venue needs some refreshing reviewing of their service and kitchen.

    We were a bit disappointed this time. We had 3 in our group and the share plates did not give any indication on the menu how may serves were on each dish. We ordered the bao buns and fish cakes to share but there were only 2 serves of each. I thought the waitress should have told us there were only 2 serves per share plate and given us the option to order a 3rd serving.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Banks Road Vineyard. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table inside the restaurant which had lovely views all round. The staff were attentive, but without being too persistent. The food was delicious and even though we were on a restricted time because of covid rules, we didn't feel rushed. We will definately be back.

    Food was tasty, however fish chowder was more like a soup with a fillet of fish laid across the top and doesn’t come with bread? Small serve of fries. As I said tasted good but could have been a little better. Staff and service were were great. Wine was nice.
