Amongst the hustle and bustle of Windsor’s renowned food precinct lies Neptune Food and Wine. Being a local favourite, this unique culinary hub will have you reimagining the notion of a wine bar. Linger over a Mediterranean-inspired menu, created by our chef, Daniel Natoli. From seafood to homemade pasta to tiramisu, it takes you straight to the Mediterranean. Pair your meal with one of the 300 bottles of wine, hand selected by our resident sommelier. Finish off your dinner with one of our many imported Amaros. Neptune is in the heart of Chapel Street, located on the number 6 tramline or a short walk from the Prahran and Windsor train stations. Head down for after-work drinks and our daily aperitivo, then head upstairs to Impala, our 70’s disco-inspired cocktail and whisky bar. Shake things up with Yoann Tarditi, our cocktail extraordinaire; this is where the fun really begins. If whisky is more your style, buy a bottle and we’ll store it for you for next time in our whisky locker!

Arrogant staff, poor wine selection give what they claim to be. Entrees good but mains overpriced and not great quality. Very average food made worse by terribly arrogant staff.

Good location, good setting, good service and wine list. Probably a little noisy after a while - having to yell to the people on your table feels a little much when food is involved...

Food is not the strength for this place, cheese and wine only. The $75 bottle of Italian wine was ok but didn’t change my life...

Although the menu seems a bit limited we were able to find more delicious looking items than we needed to order. It was hard to remove the dishes from our lists. The two standout dishes were the gin cured salmon and the whipped botarga. We will definitely return for those two and to try out the ones we eliminated.
Service was friendly and efficient. The wine selection (oddly, there isn’t a bottle list) was also impressive.
Can’t wait to return.

We had a late Friday evening dinners or four recently and while I enjoyed the overall feel of Neptune, I have to admit to being disappointed with both the quality and portion sizes of the food. The cocktail bar upstairs is excellent and the ‘choose your own wine’ option great if you love your wines. Therefore I’d see Neptune as more of a bar with food than a fully blown restaurant. We had to order a large number of dishes to satisfy four hungry adults and an over bill of $110 per heads didn’t accurately reflect the value we all felt we received.
So my advise to the management would be you’ve got most things right and the ambience is especially good, just get a new chief and improve your menu!

Over all very happy with the afternoon, but did find it very expensive. I paid for the wine separately, so for the other drinks and the food, it was very very expensive for what we had. Loved the fire and sitting there in front of it.

I caught up with some girlfriends at Neptune recently and we have a thoroughly wonderful afternoon. We enjoyed great champagne and wine and some tasty food. I personally think the menu is a little limited, I was hoping that there would be more small interesting plates to share. What we did have was very enjoyable, just a limited selection. A number of dishes are tinned seafood which does not really appeal to me and even still our selections were not available which did seem a little strange.
Its a very comfortable place for a drink and a starter, not sure about how you would fare for dinner.

Great night with friends - 2nd visit and wasn’t disappointed. Excellent service including booth out the back as requested when booking. Selected sharing plates for the group - quality of the food is excellent, some serves on the small side. Excellent wine list which you select yourself with advice available if needed. Great vibe here. Thanks!

Food is delicious. Service isn’t the fastest but it’s very friendly and attentive so worth it. Give great wine advice and our Pinot Gris was the perfect choice. We had 4 dishes and would have every one again. The oysters are next level and the saganaki is pretty memorable.

A gorgeous venue with a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, we were only told 45mins after our 6:15pm arrival that we had to leave the table by 8:15pm. This was not told to us in either the booking, our arrival or even for some time after we had been seated. This ruined the flow of our night so we left and the 6 of us spent our $$ elsewhere where we were welcome to linger and enjoy our night.
