Lovely friendly little winery tucked away off a country lane.
Only does pizzas but very tasty and delicious wine!
Simply wonderful! The pizza is delicious and the service was lovely. We were there on a beautiful sunny day so sitting on the deck overlooking the vineyard was magical.
Delicious food and a lovely deck. Great for sunny winter afternoons.
We met friends for a casual lunch & the morning winery was the perfect destination
Took my 100 yo GrandDad out for the first time since COVID x
Very nice platter for 2 and delicious Pinot Noir 2017.
Very wellset up for the Covid times. Well done
Sensational way to spend a Sunday afternoon with great friends. Wine and food exceptional, outdoor eating area fantastic,views are breathtaking and we were vey lucky to get a tour of the cellar. Love having such a fantastic winery in my backyard.
I would recommend but the waitress we had was so rude and couldn't be bothered, we were served very dirty glasses. While the manager was nice to help resolve it. The wine is delicious and so was the food. They just need to be friendly and have clean dishwasher.
This is a casual warm and inviting venue. The food and wine was fantastic and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We will go back again!
Great food, friendly service, a great bottle of champagne and a superb view. Beautiful lunch, we always come here.
Pizza bases are frozen. Poor quality ingredients. Choice of only two beers that nobody has heard of.
Always a pleasurable experience and something to look forward to
Beautiful venue , great pizzas and wine
Chilled and relaxing
While the food and location were great, we were disappointed that all tables on the deck were literally one long table separated into sections. This meant half the diners faced the vineyards and half faced the cafe. As we were a table for two we could hardly hear ourselves talk because of the close proximity to the tables on either side of us.
This was a shame because last time we visited (before the extensions) we had both sat side-on to the vineyard and the other tables were staggered around the deck, providing some privacy for each table.
We might come back but definitely NOT on a weekend. For me, with my back to the vineyard, struggling to hear my friend above the noise it was anything but a lovely birthday lunch. : -(
Just a rippingly great local place..Great food. Compact menu and great service. This is how all winerys should be. Clam relaxed and friendly. John, Cham, and family have got this place 100% right. Always a pleasure going there overlooking the vines down the valley. Relax with one of the excellent wine , beer or cider options and you have a great all round experience. My only regret is that I cannot go there more often When we have visitors we always bring them to this winery. Never fails to please.
Great wine, atmosphere, service and food. I highly recommend anyone visiting the Nillumbik area to go check out this winery. The Shiraz and Chardonnay are 10 out of 10
Nillumbik Estate is one of my happy places - very relaxed, great views, homely feel, welcoming, just beautiful. Oh and the wine and food - perfect!
We had lunch on a weekday so the restaurant was very quiet, I would love to try at the weekend when there is more atmosphere. The view is lovely and on a warm day it would be nice to sit outside.
We only shared a tasting board of meat and cheese. It was nice enough but would of preferred more artisan breads rather than slices of bread. We didn't eat the pizza although what we saw from others eating them they looked delicious.
Was also disappointed they where out of Sav Blanc, which always puzzles me when I visit a winery and they have run out.
Such a beautiful place to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon. The views towards Kinglake are superb. There is an outside deck which is a lovely place to sit on a sunny day. It would be fabulous for a function.
A great outing on a cold winter day. Lovely scenic outlook from warm, cosy, and comfortable indoors.
Great pizzas, good service and fine pinot at an affordable price.
We visited for lunch on Saturday. Whilst the food was good it was disappointing that even though we had spent $96 on lunch and a bottle of wine, we weren't permitted to taste the premium wine which was $5 per tasting. Surely after buying lunch and a bottle of wine a 15ml tasting would not break your bank! A bit stingy if you ask me!!
Had a lovely afternoon lunch. Not overly kid friendly but a great view if you get a seat on the deck on a sunny day. Will definitley visit again.
Love visiting Nillumbik Estate. It s a great casual catchup with friends and family, with beautiful pizzas and fantastic wine. Views fabulous regardless of weather. Spotted a pair of wedge tail eagles riding the wind currents last Saturday while enjoying lunch. Staff lovely!
While the pizza toppings were nice the pizza bases were clearly from frozen. I was expecting stone baked pizzas. Although the menu does not state this it would be great if they can improve their pizza bases and make them "gourmet pizza's". Apart from that, the wine was great and we had a really nice time at Nillumbik Estate. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and talking with the owner about the wine.
With such a beautiful backdrop looking over the manicured vines, it is hard not to sit back and relax. The wines are excellent and I especially enjoy the option of a wooded or non wooded chardonnay. An amazing array of pizzas covers all tastes and there are even ones available for those who have a sweet tooth. Wine tasting is offered and the staff seem intent on making your visit enjoyable. Overall a wonderful way to pass a few lazy hours on a weekend.
Always enjoy coming to Nillumbik Estate. Food and wine are fantastic
The estate is run and managed by an excellent group of people who are customer centric, informed and take the time to acknowledge and respond to their customers. The staff are helpful and happy to be in the service of the customers. The added benefit of Nillumbik his the wonderful view and a nice drop of wine.
I’ve been to Nillumbik Estate numerous times but I didn’t think the pizza was as good this time. Salad was great. Wine good as usual but great place snd fantastic view
Love going to Nillumbik Estate. Great pizzas, beautiful wine. Caters easily for ceoliacs with gluten free bases. Beautiful panoramic views to the ranges.
Great place t go fantastic views can hear what people are saying the noise level is great. Limited Menu
but food was exceptionally good staff very friendly
Beautiful setting, friendly staff, great food, all around it was a wonderful dining experience. We will definitely be back!! Thank you.
What a special part of the world! A beautiful relaxing lunch on the terrace was superb. Wonderful happy service with delicious pizzas & wine. Had a lovely wander in the vines and the kids loved it. Perfect for all of us. Thank you, 💛🍕🍷
Great wine. Simple food. Love they cater for gluten free. Beautiful views.
Fantastic wine, service and food. Great spot for the afternoon.
John and Cham have created an amazing cellar door experience. The wine particularly is an absolute stand out for anyone who loves really good wine
All Nillumbik Estate's wines are outstanding. It is well worth doing a tasting. The menu is limited to freshly made gourmet pizzas but they are soooo yummy. My favourite is the mushroom, taleggio cheese and truffle oil. To DIE for!!! The kitchen is very accommodating regarding any food intolerances and allergies. One of my favourite places!!!
Beautiful view. Great pizza. Lovely staff. Definitely will go back
Always a reliable choice. Good food, great wine, superb setting and welcoming and friendly staff. What’s not to love about this hidden gem
Perfect location with the most delicious pizza!! Will definitely be back again..
Great food, excellent wine, the views are fantastic, the staff are great.
