                    Mt Towrong was absolutely lovely. All the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Very prompt with offering service and regularly checking up on the table that all needs were being met. The dining space itself was really gorgeous and cosy with the fireplace and all the decorations. The upstairs dining would have a beautiful view and be gorgeous in the summer time! All food was really wonderful and paired well with the wines on offer. The best was the lovely grazing platter. Lots of amazing different items to taste paired with great cheese and cured meats. Overall we thoroughly loved our experience at Mt Towrong Winery and will definitely be back!

                    Staff were so lovely, as was the food, drinks and food! I tried the chard and the one that was a combination of the chard and nebiollo that was a sparkling (can't remember the name sorry!). Beautiful place, I will definitely be bringing family and friends there in the future. Thanks so much!

                    What a wonderful place. We felt soo lucky to have got a booking. 8 of us let loose at a hugh table with shared tasting plates and beautiful wine overlooking the vineyard. We are still marveling at the experience. Loved every minute , you made us feel very special. Thankyou

                    So grateful to Mount Towrong for calling us to say snap lockdown would mean our lunch would have to be cancelled but if we could come earlier they could squeeze us in. We dashed down and had a lovely lunch before 1pm. Highly recommended. :-)

                    Through lock downs & disappointments we finally made it to Mount Towrong Vineyard for a sunny winter lunch for 6. We were delighted with the experience & will definitely be back (4 of us had already been). The choices of sharing platters, excellent wine & good friendly service were above expectation. This is a uniquely designed vineyard, restaurant & cellar door. Stunning buildings that blend into the natural environment plus a wonderful ambience inside & out. We would highly recommend it for any occasion but book ahead as it is very popular. Jo

                    Great food, great service. With an asthmatic wife, the smoke level was a bit high when wood was added and despite that, it was a bit cold, especially when the front pedestrian front door was opened and when the whole door was slid sidways. In winter you need a better egress solution, maybe a clear plastic curtain, rather tacky I know. Some guests were confused where the entrance was.

                    Great ambience and service. Limited but very good food offering perfect for sharing. The wines are a must, particularly the Italian varietals and so too is the Mountain Gin paired beautifully with a light StrangeLove Tonic. Mount Towrong is a well deserved Macedon Ranges highlight and treasure.

                    Dining at Mount Towrong is a delightful experience. The staff are very attentive without over servicing. The food was delivered in a timely manner making for a leisurely relaxing lunch. The food is simple and delicious with an italian focus - feels like a homely, family experience. There is a good variety of wines to choose from although we only tried the Vivace and the Nebbiolo both of which complemented our meals. I would highly recommend this place.

                    My friend and I had such a lovely lunch and delicious wine. The service we received was friendly and professional, and apart from it being a little nosier than we had expected (there was a group of about 10 behind us, that very loud purely being joyful, it was just a little hard to hear at times. We thank the wonderful team for a lovely delightful experience.

                    Can’t say enough about the view, food and wine! You got to check this place ! Tried the bean salad, warm olives, Baguette and a bottle of wine. Everyone smiles at you and the restaurant had a very nice flow. Definitely come back and highly recommended this place. Thank you very much for your 5 star’s hospitality.

                    We had 7 guests and shared each dish only needing to order 2 dishes of one course. We are repeat customers. The food delicious but would be good to have some variety. There isn’t much for vegetarians

                    Thanks Minnie for your review, glad to know you enjoyed our delicious food. We change our menu each month and we do always have vegetarian options.
