Reviews

Rabbit terrine and arancini balls for entrees were divine. The steak was the best I have had that I can remember. The jus was so punchy and I just wanted to pick my plate up and lick it. The confit duck was beautiful as well. Dessert… yum yum yum sticky toffee pudding and the soufflé were so so good. I can’t rave enough about the food and service. Try it – you wont be disappointed!

– Kerry

Great food, great service, great views. Had a family party here with 15 people. The services and quality of food were exceptional. Highly recommend.

– Melanie

Fabulous location. Mountains, sea and winery scenario. Felt like I was in Tuscany.

– Mario

I came here with my parents that are from Tasmania! Wine capital of Australia! It was fantastic! Definitely didn’t disappoint.

– Lisa

I pass this place nearly every day whilst at work and don’t take much notice of it sat there on the hill. What a mistake, it has got a magnificent view from the restaurant over the vineyards that places in the Hunter could only dream of, with top quality food to match. What I like most about it though is that the pricing is so easy. Two courses for one price or three courses for another which makes it so much easier if you’re in a group. The food was amazing and the service great by very friendly staff. Definitely worth getting off the highway for.

– Richard

What an incredible evening we had. The menu was well planned and the wines perfectly matched. It was a classic degustation of sampling which meant that we were then able to purchase wine for the table which we had enjoyed. Even though I have frequented the Cellar Door many times and am a fan of the wines it was wonderful to be able to experience them with food which best compliments them. Well done Crooked River Winery for keeping it classy. Very much looking forward to the next degustation evening.

– Maree

Good food, great views and impeccable service are what I normally look for when dining at a beautiful vineyard like this. I am not one to gloat and rave on about how good my experience was, but I truly feel that the team here at this excellent winery deserves nothing but a true and honest review. Compliments to the chef and helpful staff behind the bar.

– Abby

Greeted by friendly and attentive staff at the restaurant. Pork belly and lamb shanks – yum. Excellent chardonnay and cab sav. The cellar door offered tastings of the wine we wanted and we had a good discussion with the owner. A very good find and would go back there again.

– John

This is a fabulous winery offering the most beautiful view of rolling vineyards of the Crooked River Winery Estate. There is a great restaurant on site and live bands are a regular here. Wines are great and Uncle Joe’s beers are fantastic too.

– Jenny

What an amazing place – incredible views of the mountains and vines with lovely large glass windows in the restaurant. The food was cooked beautifully had the duck and enjoyed a nice bottle of Crooked River Sauv Blanc. Service was fantastic, would highly recommend. A bit noisy when there are lots of people but still definitely worth visiting.
