We thought the food was tasty, just rather confusing we didn’t realise we had to share when we came to order so quickly changed what we where having.
The antipasto was very nice, the pasta which was duck was lovely , the small plate was also with pasta which we had’nt realised.
Then the larger which was main course, what can I say we had the lamb with freekah ,mint labneh , but no Cavolo Nero as on menu, There was one !, piece of lamb between two of us I have never had such a small amount for a main course. There’s was loads of vegetables but no meat to eat it with.
They need to look at their portions and have menu explained before you order.
Rather disappointing.

We let the chef choose our courses and it took the fuss out of having to make decisions. There was plenty of food for the two of us to taste everything and it was all great. The staff were attentive but not overly so. Excellent lunch!

They charge $59 or $79 pp. But you can not choose your own dish. You have to share the same food with your guests on the table. Everyone must have to same food ! Portion size is small. Been told by the staff that was due to 1. cost control. 2. kids usually pick food from parents' plate.

First time dinners here.... staff were attentive, helpful, cheerful and plentiful..... we had the Feed Me Slow menu.

The only criticism was the jux of position of the size of the Octopus serve as a Small Plate and the Tommy Ruffs as a main plate. We were a little disappointed that there was only 4 very small Tommy Ruff fillets between the two of us yet the piece of Octopus in the previous course was very very generous.

Having said that, all the plates were fresh and delicious and we would readily recommend Lou’s Place.

A very disappointing experience. The food was average and very poor value for what we paid. We had the feed me menu and were told we all had to choose the same meals. Our waiter was particularly unhelpful and had a poor attitude. This was a birthday celebration which I stated clearly when I booked and it was a big let down. Wouldn't recommend this place and definitely won't be back

Very good food and quite generous serves. Difficult to get consensus on dishes in the
Feed me" menus when more than 4 people.
Airconditioning very inadequate!
Wait staff very pleasant and professional.

It's the second time we have visited Lou Miranda Estate for lunch and with the new menu, it did not disappoint. We went all out and went with the 'Feed me like Lou' option.
Every plate was fresh, full of flavour and great for sharing. The highlight for me was the slow cooked lamb that melted in your mouth and the chargrilled whole chicken.
Once we had dessert we were full as, didn't even eat dinner that night. So definitely worth every penny!!
Can't wait to visit again

We knew of Lou Miranda Wines, in researching their opening hours , found that they had a restaurant on site. Checked the menu and made the booking for lunch.
YUM!
We had the Feed Me Slow menu, and had to take some of the side dishes home in a doggy bag. Did not want to leave them behind. We started with the the Antipasto, loved the whipped ricotta. Then moved onto the tastiest baby beets dish. Our pasta of choice on the day was a melt in your mouth ricotta filled anguletti in burnt butter sauce with anchovies and walnuts. Main choice was fish of the day, and our sides were carrots and mixed green veggies .
The combination of flavours and textures in each dish was exceptional. My only complaint is that this restaurant is in SA and I live in NSW. Would come back regularly, if it was possible. Thank you for a fabulous lunch.
