From start to finish my Mother & I were attentively looked after. The entrees and mains with matched wines were amazing - so much attention to detail in the creative, delicious courses.
We both loved our entrees - poached chicken oysters, cucumber salsa, coconut foam, egg yolk & wakame and cured ocean trout, spanner crab, crumpet, zucchini & horseradish cream.
Mains were equally as tasty & creative - herb crusted lamb cutlet, rolled leg, beetroot, pine nut crumble & marinated chèvre and pan roasted barramundi, king prawn, red curry gel with mussel, lemongrass $ peanut salad.
We opted to share on off the menu Frangelico affogato for dessert with a wine we selected each.
The restaurant was the busiest I have ever seen it with lots of family celebrations happening at large group tables.
Food and drinks arrived in a timely manner and staff were attentive and cheerful.

That was our 3rd visit in just over a year, the service is always excellent, but the food was exceptionally good this time. Make sure you book a table, we thought it was a quiet weekend, but it was fully booked.

What a suprisingly pleasant experience at the Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyard. Foods were great, Staff were just so friendly and wonderful. The restaurant is clean and quiet. Price of foods are maybe a little high but worth it. With brilliant Brown Brothers wines, it can not go wrong!!

After not eating at Brown bros for more than ten years we decided to come back again. We were not disappointed. The food was beautiful, the matched wines delightful and the service was friendly and faultless. I highly recommend here and will certainly not wait another 10 years before coming back.

Great well prepared/presented food and wine matching. Evaporative aircooling did not cope with mid summer heat so best avoided at height of summer, unless you want to sweat through your meal. Nearby nice cellar door for pre or post lunch tasting (but cheaper to buy at Dan Murphy’s).

We had lunch at Brown Brothers on Christmas Eve and enjoyed one of the best meals we’ve ever had. We had three courses with matched wines and had trouble choosing each course as there were so many tempting options. Our table by the window meant we could watch the fairy wrens in the garden, which was lovely. The service was friendly and efficient throughout and we will definitely go back.

It was a lovely spot to dine on a beautiful day. Good choices available on the menu. For my main meal I chose double smoked pork cutlet. The cutlet was tender and really delicious. It was served with creamy parsnip (I think) and a rich sweet apple puree. I wasn't keen on the creamy parsnip as it was too rich when combined with the sweet apple puree. My dining partner chose the venison and that was very well cooked, pink and tender. It was also served with a rich sauce. We ordered a side of potato chips. It was more thickly cut potato wedges. Unfortunately they were not as crunchy as we had expected but we need the potato to balance out our rich mains. The serving of the mains were generous. Service was pleasant and friendly.

Pleasant but only adequate food direction and execution.One wait person was super into owning her job,her colleague on the day
seemed bummed.Anyone can be having a bad day but don’t project it onto diners.
It’s all about the wine,I get it,but the wine deserves a food direction with a much more
dynamic and punchy attitude. It’s passive and tries to please everyone.That’s a recipe for a bland and mediocre food experience.

A vast variety of meals to choose from and the option of having wines with the meal or not if you are the designated driver was good, a lovely to spend the afternoon. Didn't realise until a little later that there was a playground for children to play in.
