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. 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!

Private Dining

Neptune is a simple but stunning venue that provides an impressive setting for events of all styles.

Fantastic food in a great location just off the hustle of Chapel St. It's also great just to sit at the bar.

The food was beautifuk and we have been multiple times before and loved it. However , it was my birthday and work within the commune group and we couldn’t even finish our drinks or get dessert as we got our bill dropped . No dish descriptions and portions were quite small. Felt very rushed .

I feel really let down by my experience here. Been once before and had a wonderful time, service was fantastic. This time was the complete opposite.
Booked a table which was ready early, great! Sat down and was completely shunned by who I assume was the manager for the evening and all other floor staff.
We were sat near the bar so I couldn't understand how we were ignored for 15 minutes! One of the servers walked past our table no less than 4 times, looking at our empty glasses and table. Not once did they stop to ask if we had been served or would like some water. They even served the lady who sat down 5 minutes after us.
It wasn't until we upped and left that they were about to bring us menus. I've put this place on my black list now and it would take something really special for me to even consider coming back. The staff need to drastically improve their service and attention to patrons. I feel really let down by being completely blanked by waiters who feel we're not worthy of proper service.

A bunch of people who love good food and wine, but hey ho your service killed the whole experience. Go to the fridge and pick a wine, really???
We wanted bloody Mary,'s to start (Saturday lunch) oh no we don't stock tomato juice (there was a 7 eleven down the road). You had vodka fhs. Not great. You could have sold us a motza on Saturday, it was a pup, so we left. Shame. Never recommend you guys, sorry.

Food is still good but the new menu isn’t as special. Please bring back the jaffle.
Also louder then usual and no longer possible to hold a conversation due to noise.

I’m a regular diner however I wouldn’t rush back with the new menu and excessive noise.

The food and overall venue was fantastic however we were very disheartened to hear that after spending over $1000 on lunch that they couldn't accommodate us anywhere within the restaurant to finish our bottles of wine. I would have been more understanding if the restaurant was busy but it was only us and 2 other tables in the entire venue.
A really lovely lunch that was ruined by poor customer service.

I'd only been to Neptune Food & Wine for drinks previously, and I was pleasantly surprised - the food was absolutely delicious! It was a little quiet but it was a Sunday lunch, and there was a group of us so it suited us just fine. Staff were friendly - wine choice was great. Loved it.

Neptune Windsor, great food served in a friendly and timely manner. Terrific value. Had a table of 6 and we all left very happy. Would return any time and i can highly recommend. Only one thing bothered me, music was too load for my taste, but that's subjective I suppose. Great venue!

The wait staff explained the menu was designed to share, but we really saw no evidence of that in the dishes at all - physically difficult to split a serving of what we ordered, and really just ended up being a taste of it. The serving sizes were yummy, but small and expensive. We left feeling hungry still rather than spend another $30 on another small dish.

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.
