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.

I was very much looking forward to lunch at Mount Towrong as it features greatly in our local tourism advertising. The lunch was very disappointing. My husband and I both had the meatballs which were dry and tasteless. We then shared the flourless chocolate cake in the hope of improving our experience. It was nice but would have been even nicer if it had been served warm. The wine however was very nice. We were hoping this would be a good venue to meet family and friends from Melbourne at but we will not be returning.

Dear Lonny, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It's great to hear that you enjoyed our wine but disappointing you did not enjoy our meatballs which have been very popular on our April menu. It is also disappointing to hear that you will not visit us again.

This was our second time in 2 weeks - we have to keep going back!! Fabulous food and service. The waiters are engaging but professional. We love their Italian varietal wines and their locally made Gin is not bad either!! We had great dishes of antipasto, chicken terrine and a duck confit with a white bean sauce. We will go back again.
