Family run winery showcasing food and wines grown on their property. Lunch on offer was 5 courses with matching wines optional. Starters included house made bread roll made from wheat grown on property stone ground, served with churned butter and olives, house made rice cracker with taramasalata and more.. Highlight was salmon on bed of beans in squid ink served with fennel followed by house made pasta with chestnuts and mushrooms - both delicious. We would not order sides next time as the portions were adequate and we found sides even though really good was too much food for two of us.
Matching wines complimented the food beautifully.
Owners were welcoming with friendly informative service. The atmosphere was rustic with dining in a farm house building with timber floors, open fire and views of the winery. Outside the building was a citrus orchard, garden, hens wandering about and seating under the trees with view of lake Moodemere.
All in all a lovely experience and would highly recommend a visit

Had the 5 course menu last Sunday and it was delicious! Perfect sized plates and a great variety of flavours. We’ll be returning with friends in a few weeks time.

Nice place. Sat inside but in retrospect may have been better outside? The dining area is in the tasting area and this may be an issue if there are a lot of people tasting wine.
Food is very good. Chicken was excellent and the Lamb ribs very good. The tasting menu as a starter is also worthwhile.
The price of a glass of wine is too expensive. It would be better buying a bottle and taking the left over home for later.

The steak was tender, succulent and grilled to my preference superbly. I do not drink sweet wines as a rule but the “tiara” with the trifle was amazing.

What a lovely location, sitting on the banks of the lake enjoying food worth fantastic flavours and wines to match, what more can you ask, oh yes, great hosts.
We had an enjoyable long lunch, just on three hours and the time flew.
Will we go again, most definitely.

Food and people were great and so was the atmosphere too- there was only one issue with an hour and a bit wait for our food to come out but they told us that they were a little behind due to an unforeseen issue in the kitchen which was good of them to do that so we just went for a stroll in the vineyards until our meal came.

I’d certainly recommend this place for lunch

My son and I, among many other families, really enjoyed the Mothers Day lunch at Lake Moodemere Estate. The food was delicious and plentiful, the service friendly and efficient. The setting is lovely, it is kid and dog-friendly and utterly relaxing.

Apart from an unfortunate mix up that meant we waited an unacceptable time between our entree and main course (just under an hour) the visit was very enjoyable. The food, in particular, the lamb special was outstanding and the wines weren't bad either.

Lovely setting by the lake - the hosts were super accommodating and never tired to share their story... seeing the sheep running around the paddock as you drive in, makes you smile, especially the naughty ones that escaped and are eating the grass along the driveway... loved our amazing lunch, and lamb has never tasted so good!

We all had a wonderful time and wanted to stay longer however when we arrived home someone had broken into our home and stolen all of my jewellery, including my late mothers rings. as you could imagine I am devastated after such a lovely afternoon.

Thanks for taking the time to review our Lakeside Restaurant after such a devastating experience. The same thing happened to both my mother and mother in law. It's terrible and we're sorry your day ended that way. On a brighter note, it's wonderful to hear your positive feedback and we hope to continue to improve by offering something special every time you visit.

With my family visiting from overseas we wanted to lunch locally in a pleasant atmosphere with good service, food and wine. We were not disappointed. We felt very welcome and ,even though the weather was extremely warm ( say 41c) , we still had a lovely day eating outside looking over the lake

Menu, service and wines were very much to our liking...we will most defiantly be returning.
