                                                            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.

                                                            We had the "Feed Me Friday", chef's choice menu. It consisted of five small (perfect for lunch), delicious dishes. The dishes were delivered in a timely and friendly manner, with as much explanation as you wanted. Matched with a glass of local wine - perfect!

                                                            The chef was brilliant. He came out and talked to us and then out together a series of delightful delicious treats. We also tried the $14 wine sampling. Excellent choice of several wines at this vineyard. I highly recommend. We will be back again soon!!

                                                            The food here is consistently good. Very tasty and the menu offers share plates or individual main courses. The share platters are generous and the menu selection was great. We have been here a number of times and will continue to return. We also love their wines.

                                                            A lovely little spot for lunch. Food was excellent and staff friendly. Had the wine tasting paddle which gave you a good overview of the wines available. Good value for money if you are looking for a more intimate and unpretentious experience.

                                                            This is the second time we have been to Banks Road Vineyard and was a bit disappointed. The room was VERY loud, to the point that I could hardly hear my husband talk. This resulted in us quickly eating and leaving. The other patrons weren't loud, it is the acoustics in the room. Having said that, the food, wine and service are amazing.

                                                            Lunched here today with friends but all very dissapointed. Ordered Charcuterie Board which came out on a dinner plate, rather than a board and was extremely small and uninspiring, the cured meats were almost warm, as though left out for a few hours previously. Not much on the board other than a few meats, bread, crispbreads, terrine and lots of pickles! Also shared a sourdough/dips plate which again was small and extemely unispiring with only 1 x Hommus dip (rather than dips) and a large amount of crispbreads rather than the sourdough we ordered. The few slices of sourdough were dry and tasteless. We had also requested for our main meals to come out after we had finished the share plates but within a few minutes our mains were brought to the table. We had only just had first drinks delivered and had only started on the entrees, so we queried this and reminded the waitress that we had requested a wait period. The poor waitress was quite embarrassed and said the kitchen was closing so she had no choice but to bring them out. By the time we got to eat our mains they were almost cold so again extremely dissapointing as most mains are around $25.00 When booking on-line we had no choice but to accept a later booking so do not understand how they can take bookings but then close the kitchen shortly after guests arrival. One the positive side, the Banks Road Shiraz was amazing!

                                                            We had a lovely lunch and really enjoyed the food & service. Bubbles a little pricey for a bottle when you can buy French Champagne for the same price, overall would highly recommend.

                                                            Absolutely amazing experience. We often eat out, and this was the first time we dined at Banks Road Vineyard. We were absolutely thrilled with everything from the booking, location, friendly staff, food, drinks, view, pricing - and the ambience as lovely and quiet. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                            Atmosphere was lovely, great view, good vibe. But the waiters/ waitresses took quite a while to serve us and we ended up having to go to the front counter ourselves to order because they had forgotten about our table. Other than that the food was nice and the wine was lovely.

                                                            We had the special $28 per person experience that included a 6 flight tastings plus 3 different snacks. The food was wonderful but we found the wine not to our liking, so did not purchase any bottles to take home. Overall, great value for a light lunch and the sculptures on the property add to the visual experience.

                                                            We like Banks Road, however we had a poor experience. We booked for outdoor dining, knowing it was undercover and protected. However, we were seated at a table that was literally in a wind tunnel. The bistro blind was broken, we understand that these things happen, but we were not moved to a better and vacant table and instead ate our meals hurriedly, freezing cold and unable to hear each other speak. It really was miserable. The bit that was most annoying was that we were held with a $20pp “bond”, if we didn’t turn up, we got charged a no-show fee. However, it didn’t go both ways. We should have been given the option to leave and find something better for lunch.

                                                            Everything was good, thought the tasting combination was very different, enjoyably so, but could have been offered a discount on the tastings as we purchased two bottles of wine.
