Outstanding value excellent service thank you Charlotte gorgeous surroundings and beautiful food.
Fabulous food in an equally fabulous setting. A MUST for any occasion with great food, service and location!
The ambience was warm and inviting. The food was delicious.
A delightful setting and well worth the drive to enjoy lunch, a browse in the bookshop and good company.
Great pizzas, service and atmosphere. Good location.
We thought the staff were exceptionally good. We would all like to return to try other menu items. The coffee was special.
Fantastic lunch, service was slow though. Could have done with a few more staff on as it was Easter. Would highly recommend to family/friends
Beautiful setting!!! Food was really good and local wine options on the menu. Service was good but a little slow because of the Easter long weekend crowd. Overall a fantastic experience. Recommend it a lot!
great food, disappointing non-committed service by basically untrained girls. Waited ages for ordered mineral water, had to ask several times, same thing with the bill - ended up taking it to the cashier.
Lovely lunch for 60th birthday. Beautiful venue and stylish tasty food. Great wines too. We had the Bendooley sparkling wine with our meal. Lovely! Even though it was booked out we never felt rushed or crushed and wasn’t too noisy to talk. Great venue.
We have eaten here quite a few times in recent months .... a great half-way meeting point to see our Canberra friends as we live south of Sydney.
Such a pretty venue and always excellent food and service.
A very pleasant surprise! Friendly staff, unique ambience & amazing food! We will definitely be back. Thank you & congratulations
Had a lovely relaxed late lunch - fabulous wine and food and relaxed service - very busy staff who were as accommodating as they could be given the number of guests!
Food is amazing!! Best pizza I’ve ever eaten. Love everything about this dining experience
Bendooley Estate provides a very special dining experience. Sumptuous food, exceptional service, beautiful setting. Highly recommend for every occasion.
A wonderful meal surrounded by beautiful books. The staff were ver friendly and discrete. The food is deliciously prepared even if overpriced. We drove up especially from Canberra and will be back! The orange caramel samosas are to die for.
Absolutely amazing! The food was outstanding and the sizes were enough for 2 people
The service was great and the staff are friendly
Well with the drive, the tour and just hanging out!
My cousin and I went to Bendooley Estate on Saturday the 17th the food was lovely, ambience excellent. Being able to browse all the beautiful books at leisure was great. The only let down was drinks took to long to arrive we received our food well before our drink order, when we ordered coffee it the order was forgotten and we had to re order and when our desserts arrived we had no cutlery to eat them with so I had to find a waiter to give us some. In their defence they where very busy. Overall we enjoyed the experience and would return.
This is a beautiful winery in an ideal setting. The staff are exceptionally friendly and down to earth. Food is lovely and ambience is fantastic. We make sure we always take our overseas guests here as a special treat. We will definitely be returning.
We've been to Bendooley previously and had an enjoyable meal, so chose it to entertain some overseas visitors who wanted to see the region. The atmosphere of the Book Barn is uniqued. The estate wines are very good an with cellar door sales they make a nice present to takeaway. If we had to have any negative comment it was that we made the reservation for 11:30 (with Open Table) as we were time-poor, but on arrival was told that the kitchen was not open until 12 noon. We'll be back.
Whatever you do, you must try the Citrus Samosas! Absolutely devine.... linguine with crab also fabulous ... will be going back!
We had a lovely long lunch at Bendooley's. Enjoyed some wine tasting beforehand and then spent the afternoon eating and drinking in a lovely relaxed environment.
Beautiful drive down to the estate. Lovely ambiance. Food was excellent. Decor was fabulous. The estate and winery present extremely well. I will definitely come back and will recommend it to anyone. Browsing the books was a special treat also
Food was good would be helpful to train staff in relation to the use of gift vouchers. We couldn't spend the entire value and when we asked about whether we could keep the unused the value we were told no at the restaurant then had more problems when we got to the cellar door. It was ok at the end however the staff could have dealt with it better
Fantastic venue, fabulous food and great service. A triumph!
Generous helpings, quite nice food, nice ambience.
Delicious, super fast service and beautiful smiley happy staff 😊
Fantastic place to dine.
Great food and great service.
Say no more.
We took an overseas friend to Bendooley Estate and we all agreed it was worth the 1 hr drive from Sydney. The staff were great and so was the scenery. Loved the book selection and my Linguini. The burger was slightly dry but the rest was brilliant. The Rose was loved by all!
We have been coming here now for two or three years and never been disappointed yet. The food, service and ambience are excellent.I would Highly recommend this place to anyone...give it a go you won't be disappointed. Colin.
A great spot to share with friends especially if you book table in over flow area
Had a great time with our family. Baby friendly. Great location.
Well presented, staff are friendly however need to remember orders (my experience was nothing big Just missed one drink). Lovely location.
Loved eating amongst the most fab selection of books enjoying good food and wine, with friendly staff. We will be back!
As always, the ambiance at Bendooley is lovely and a great place to entertain overseas visitors. The service is just right ie attentive but not intrusive.
It was great to see some menu changes but we noticed many are catering for vegetarians and vegans. This is of course important but don’t forget those of us who are not!
The new dishes we tried were good but perhaps getting a bit fussy. The ones we have enjoyed the most over several years been the simple deliciously cooked dishes with great ingredients. Perhaps some of the staples could be varied a bit to add more interest
Anyway always a favourite and we will be back.
The setting is beautiful. Majestic drive in as well as easily accessible. The ambience is amazing. The setting among books is unique. Loved the menu and the service was great. We celebrated my husband's 80th birthday and it was very memorable. We spent 4 days in the Southern Highlands Nd returned on the last day to enjoy a casual lunch!
As usual, Bendooley Estate provides. It provides good food, great wine, and just the best setting.
Service leaves a lot to desire! Unfortunately I found the venue not particularly accommodating for us. We didn’t get offered dessert, had to chase up the bill etc etc
We had an absolutely fantastic lunch at Bendooley to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant is beautiful and inviting, with the books of the book barn creating a magical atmosphere. The food was superb: every dish we ordered was done to perfection, with special mention to the braised goats shoulder, which was an absolute stand out. A great wine list and the service was top notch, with the wait staff attentive, humorous and knowledgeable. Highly recommend for a special event, or if you are simply seeking excellent food in a glorious setting. We will definitely be coming back!
Fantastic food,service and atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit .
