We had another amazing luncheon on Sunday. Shoulder of lamb was best ever. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. My favourite place these days. Looking forward to my next visit.

Beautiful rustic Italian cuisine with exceptional service.

I would recommend that anyone who is in the region should visit the Mount Towrong Vineyard. A true hidden gem.

So grateful to Mount Towrong for calling us to say snap lockdown would mean our lunch would have to be cancelled but if we could come earlier they could squeeze us in. We dashed down and had a lovely lunch before 1pm. Highly recommended. :-)

Through lock downs & disappointments we finally made it to Mount Towrong Vineyard for a sunny winter lunch for 6. We were delighted with the experience & will definitely be back (4 of us had already been). The choices of sharing platters, excellent wine & good friendly service were above expectation.
This is a uniquely designed vineyard, restaurant & cellar door. Stunning buildings that blend into the natural environment plus a wonderful ambience inside & out.
We would highly recommend it for any occasion but book ahead as it is very popular.

Great food, great service. With an asthmatic wife, the smoke level was a bit high when wood was added and despite that, it was a bit cold, especially when the front pedestrian front door was opened and when the whole door was slid sidways. In winter you need a better egress solution, maybe a clear plastic curtain, rather tacky I know. Some guests were confused where the entrance was.

Great ambience and service. Limited but very good food offering perfect for sharing. The wines are a must, particularly the Italian varietals and so too is the Mountain Gin paired beautifully with a light StrangeLove Tonic. Mount Towrong is a well deserved Macedon Ranges highlight and treasure.

Dining at Mount Towrong is a delightful experience. The staff are very attentive without over servicing. The food was delivered in a timely manner making for a leisurely relaxing lunch. The food is simple and delicious with an italian focus - feels like a homely, family experience. There is a good variety of wines to choose from although we only tried the Vivace and the Nebbiolo both of which complemented our meals. I would highly recommend this place.

My friend and I had such a lovely lunch and delicious wine. The service we received was friendly and professional, and apart from it being a little nosier than we had expected (there was a group of about 10 behind us, that very loud purely being joyful, it was just a little hard to hear at times. We thank the wonderful team for a lovely delightful experience.

Can’t say enough about the view, food and wine! You got to check this place ! Tried the bean salad, warm olives, Baguette and a bottle of wine.

Everyone smiles at you and the restaurant had a very nice flow.

Definitely come back and highly recommended this place. Thank you very much for your 5 star’s hospitality.

We had 7 guests and shared each dish only needing to order 2 dishes of one course. We are repeat customers. The food delicious but would be good to have some variety. There isn’t much for vegetarians

I was very much looking forward to lunch at Mount Towrong as it features greatly in our local tourism advertising. The lunch was very disappointing. My husband and I both had the meatballs which were dry and tasteless. We then shared the flourless chocolate cake in the hope of improving our experience. It was nice but would have been even nicer if it had been served warm. The wine however was very nice. We were hoping this would be a good venue to meet family and friends from Melbourne at but we will not be returning.

Dear Lonny, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It's great to hear that you enjoyed our wine but disappointing you did not enjoy our meatballs which have been very popular on our April menu. It is also disappointing to hear that you will not visit us again.

Bad day weather wise on our visit but the restaurant was cosy. Upstairs tables provide a better ambiance with views over the vineyard. Service was good, staff were all friendly, helpful and well informed. Food was delicious with a good selection of wines. Overall we had an enjoyable lunch and will visit again.
