    A bit disappointing for our 3rd visit here. The service was very slow. We ordered drinks well before our meals & the food came out first. Our pasta was just warm-cold by the time we’d finished. Disappointing as the meal was very tasty. The ambiance was very good but overall a very slow afternoon.

    Friendly service although they had the technology for the menu and ordering via phone at table it wasn’t in use on the day. Great place for families . Will go again on our next visit to Maleny.

    Food was delicious, we were seated by the playground which was great as we had a child but we kept getting whiffs of the toilets which wasn’t very pleasant when trying to eat. Staff were nice. We had nearly finished eating before our wine/beer paddles came out. Not sure if they had forgotten about us. Overall it was a nice afternoon. Will definitely ask to be seated away from the toilets next time.

    Pouring with rain, it was hard to get in or find the entrance. Once inside the restaurant was so quiet, no music or atmosphere. Ordered a cheese platter which was amazing. No knives provided so had to ask, but no cheese knives on site, only butter knife. Venue and food and wine amazing, let down by ambience and customer service. Staff not warm or friendly.

    Was busy with everyone having to order at the bar and only one staff member taking orders. I’m thankful we didn’t have a table inside where everyone was lining up as I found it a little awkward for the people sitting there. The vibe and seating area is beautiful the staff were friendly. We ordered the pastas and found them a little bland. I would go back for drinks and nibbles possibly but feel a better system in taking orders needs to be looked at.

    Had heard from multiple sources there had recently been a limited menu which was not great. I was surprised as having had lunch here 6 months back it was brilliant. If there was an issue it’s all sorted out as the full menu was on offer with a great variety of dishes. The crab and prawn pasta should be a signature dish. AMAZING! Coupled with a wine flight is the best way to go. Keep it up guys, highly recommended.

    Good overall, the wine was tasty and it was a great experience to have wine tasting on your table with your food. There was only 3 vegetarian options, however there wasn’t a massive choice for food in general. Mainly share plates, so a good place for wine and nibbles.

    Food was amazing!! Service was pretty average, my guess was understaffed. I rang 8 times over two days before getting through. The ambiance would have been so much better if they played any kind of music. Not much of a view either if that’s what you’re after. But like I said, couldn’t fault the food!

    Wr had an absolutely lovely lunch experience, from the moment we arrived & were greeted by 2 lovely staff members, to quick ordering of our drinks & food. The wine tasting board was gr8 value for money, unftly no1 to explain wines to us tho, but the stand-up was the share platter of cheese, bread, crackers, cold cuts & condiments & also my partner juicy beef burgern with delicious fries! We would have no hesitation to go back

    Unfortunately a few functions on and not enough staff members - our meals came and was eaten before our drinks and the drinks had to be prompted twice by us lining up to ask for them - once we were told they just were taken out and the second time saying they were already sent however have us new ones. It’s a bit sad because I was really looking forward to this place and was just a bit of a let down… definitely need to hire more staff if there are going to be functions

    I booked a table for my mothers birthday, they gave us our own room without even asking, the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly throughout our whole time there. The drinks were very well priced and delicious. The food was much the same, after we ordered it wasn’t long at all before they brought it it out and it was also very well priced and delicious. All the meals were great with the Prawn Cesar salad as the clear winner. I would definitely go back, we all had our fill of drinks and food and it still came in under $50 a head. Great place.

    Overcooked fish, disinterested staff, and very dirty rest rooms. Unfortunately Clouds Vineyards felt like a cheap cafe when it could have been so much more. The weekday menu was extremely limited and uninteresting. I won’t be taking interstate visitors to the Barrel cafe for a very long time.

    If you are going for just the wines, you will be happy...they are very good & the Chardonnay was one of the nicest, I have tried in a long time. If you are going for the views, you will be disappointed; as the whole place seems to be facing the wrong way...why are the best views from the carpark as your driving out??! If you are going for impeccable service, well...our (older) waitress was lovely & couldn't do enough for us. The tables surrounding us were being "serviced" by a younger darker haired girl & I was appalled by the way in which she spoke to the other customers. She was arguing with (all of) them, that they had moved tables after ordering...& hadn't placed orders, when they actually had etc. She was just a complete A Grader to everyone on that day & should not be in this industry! Sorry, but a necessary truth. If you are going for the food...just order from the wine list! 😉

    We were not sure if we ordered at the counter or table service. We did have a booking and were seated with menus but not informed of the procedure. I had the salmon which was over cooked but still nice and my partner had the Pasta which was quite basic in flavour. I would recommend a friend visiting but maybe not for a meal.
