Brown Brothers Restaurant

A place to wine and dine in the lazy afternoon sun, or catch up with friends for a casual bite to eat. Where à la carte meets mouth watering menu items from a Chef that knows no boundaries when it comes to seriously good food.

Our Wine Bar & Restaurant looks a little differently lately, bridging the gap between fine dining and a casual place to meet with friends. A larger menu, seasonal produce and home-grown ingredients are the heroes of our new food offering, as well as supporting many local suppliers to bring a new and exciting taste to Brown Brothers.

We found the menu underwhelming and left still feeling hungry. I would recommend a glass (or bottle) of wine, a tasting in the cellar door and that’s it.

Found the staff pleasant and friendly although service was a little slow. Was a bit disappointed with the taste area l understand why but to expensive we use to go every year at Easter for around 10 years loved the way it was presented l really enjoyed wine matching the meal, times change l guess.

Lovely lunch had at Brown Brothers. Food was mostly delicious especially the Smoked salmon and the pork scotch (husband wasn’t that impressed with the charcuterie board). We are just looking forward to Patricias Table opening to enjoy the slow lunch with matched wines one day soon! However the pared down lunch was still very good. Thank you!

Wines are earthy and delicious and the ever changing food menu with its good showcasing of local produce is a flavourbomb to the senses. Love coming here every year

Table was ready for us when we arrived, so glad we booked. Although it was humid that day, they had cooler fans positioned in strategic places so we felt very comfortable. Service was great, staff were attentive and helpful. Food was beautifully presented and you can taste the freshness of all the ingredients. We ordered the salmon, pork scotch, zucchini salad, charcuterie and emu pastrami. The dessert was a bit pricey but we wanted to try the chocolate covered chicken skin and peach semifreddo. Tasted amazing! Lovely ambience overlooking the garden area. Definitely will come back again.

We enjoyed a delicious selection of meals which incorporated ingredients from the on-site vegetable patch. The meals were an exciting fusion of flavours, textures and colours... the food is certainly not anything that could be recreated at home. All of this made the experience extra special!

We stopped over for lunch on Xmas Eve on way to Poreounkah. Bar menu offered on the day was reasonable but we miss the more extensive unique Epicurean Dining Experience we used to enjoy at Brown Brothers.

We would love to see the Epicurean Dining experience return soon to Brown Brothers.

The service was good and all the people who served us were great. The menu was disappointing. We had the zucchini salad and the cucumber and wild rice salad and they were disappointing. Bland flavour and not very wholesome. Limited menu. Not value for money. I would recommend browns brother for a nice afternoon drink and a snack but not for a meal.

Everything was exceptional - just the coffee at the end was a bit cool - but they did warn us that barista person was learning! The waitress said was not going to charge for one coffee - but she did. Apart from that very small thing - I would definitely return. Thanks

Our lunch at Brown Bros provided us with very good service, food and a great lunch.
The day was warm and the inside dining area was airconditioned making it very comfortable. We would definitely come back again and would recommend it to others.
Thank you.

We had an enjoyable outing at Brown Brothers. The setting is lovely and food and service was excellent. Downside was they are not open every day so you need to know which days they are open. Also we tried to buy wine at their cellar door and it was $10 per bottle more than we had paid at the restaurant.

We always enjoy the beautiful food, great place to go with friends for a special event.
Was disappointed with some chip dish we ordered, ( like prawn chips, not worth the money)
Like to try new things most time we have really enjoyed our choices.

A shared lockdown weekend getaway with friends amongst the vines. Brown Bros Winery, Milawa our destination.
Originally promoted as the Food & Wine festival weekend, unfortunately this could not go ahead with restrictions in place due to the pandemic.
Nevertheless the venue, service, food, wine tasting, along with the solo musician made for a wonderful experience.

I found it hard to find the place. Once there it was a nice place however, the service was extremely slow and I had to keep going and finding staff to order drink and food. One order was
Mixed up snd not what I ordered, however, it was rectified quickly when we finally got our food after again asking staff where it was.

Gorgeous setting and food was pretty good. Unfortunately our main meals had been forgotten about and we had to bring this to the service staff attention. They gave us a free bottle of wine for the inconvenience. I would go back just for the setting.
