  • Good food. Nice place for a winery cafe. Nice wines. Shiraz is recommended both 15 and 14. Staff is exasperated though which kind of brought down the place a bit.
  • Booked a table for mothers day 2017 over the phone. Was told at the time of booking that mothers day would be a set menu with a glass of champagne on arrival for mothers. We arrived at the agreed time to be half-greeted by young, unprepared and disinterested staff. Was offered a table in the middle of a thoroughfare with views of the toilet. After politely inquiring if we could have a table by the window, we were told they were reserved (presumably for people more important than us). We eventually negotiated a window table (we were the only customers in the entire venue at this time). After being seated, we were offered a regular menu, and after 10 minutes, politely inquired where the set menu and (promised) glass of champagne for my wife was.......after an awkward 5 minute fumble, the young staff eventually realised there was in-fact a set menu for mothers day and gave us a single piece of paper (for a table of 4). A more experienced female staff member eventually saved the situation by offering us champagne and took our orders whilst the young staff casually sipped a coffee by the cash register in full view of customers. At the end of the meal, we had ordered english breakfast tea, but were served some form of rose-hip / chamomile tea instead. We were made to feel like difficult customers by requesting the correct tea. The only reason this received two stars instead of one is that the food was of excellent quality, was of good portion size and arrived quickly. Hardly a surprise considering we were the only customers in the venue at this time. In summary, a nice venue with one helpful staff member whose efforts to improve our dining experience were genuinely appreciated (Anne?) - however the poor levels of service offered by the millennial / Gen Y staff was quite frankly cringe-worthy and completely detracted from our visit to Lerida Estate. We will not be returning.
  • Stopped by this little gem of a winery by suggestion of my sister, couldn't have been any better!! A pleasant ambiance to have lunch. Their Pinot Noir "Josephine" is simply divine, their Pinot Noir Rosé is literally the best rosé around. Will definitely come back for some more vino 🍷
  • Delicious wine and great service! Wine tasting was fun and the cakes and scones were thoroughly enjoyed by our group visiting.
  • Wine tasting is great, with a very affable guy doing the tastings, and definitely worth a stop off if you are in the region. They also have a good selection of wines. However, the cafe' is honestly the worst place to go for food in the Canberra wine district, and has prompted me to write my one and only negative review on Google. A pie and mash will set you back $26, and a very, very plain pulled pork panini is 18.5 ( to give you an idea of how absurd their pricing is for a cafe). The worst is their 'Ploughman's lunch' however, which advertises that it includes prosciutto, and then only includes one very small slice alongside a stack of apple and cucumber. When we asked for another couple of slices we were charged extra, which was very disappointing given the circumstance. Do yourself a favour and go anywhere else in the region, Lake George winery charges similar prices for real restaurant food, and Lark Hill charges more but provides so much extra for your money. Alternatively if you do want to stop off at Lerida for wine, and have a taste for average cafe food then save yourself money and fill up in Melbourne. Shame on Lerida for taking advantage of people on wine tastings (and the fact that all of the better places book out quickly) with their terrible cafe.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
