  • We visited as a family for our anniversary. Our waiter seemed to be inexperienced, as we waited ages for our first drinks, and we got a wrong order. We had to remind the waiter for our second round of...  more »

  • Great food, drinks and relaxed atmosphere. I’m surprised that I didn’t discover this local gem sooner!  more »

  • We had a great experience today with a fantastic breakfast which was probably on the light side but absolutely delicious. Next we had the winery tour with Steve. We were running late and a gentleman at the bar helped us by keeping our pram in their back room during the tour and walked us over to catch up with the tour group. Steve did a great job keeping the group entertained, well done for a part retired man!
  • Atmosphere was good. Desserts were good. Dropped 2 stars because of my experience w the mains. Had a clay pot seafood curry with rice. Some of the clams in the curry were not cooked. Showed the waitress and she took the clams and returned 2 cooked ones. Not sure what to say as normally restaurants replace the whole dish. I'm guessing costs come first before food safety?
  • Went to Sirromet today for the first time in 15 years with my mum and girlfriend. Beautiful set up and a really nice area however a few things brought down our experience. After a bit of a walk around we went into Restaurant Lurleen's. It was very well presented, had a great view and the staff were really nice and polite. Entree's were excellent, which was what we pretty much expected from the place and pricing. Mains were a bit of a hit and miss (and after the entrees we were all looking forward to the mains). Each meal we felt had decent elements to them but also elements in the dish that really let them down. While the staff were really polite they were a bit inattentive (we always had to wave them down for drinks, there was a huge wait between our entrees and our mains and the table took a long time to be cleared after each course). All in all it was a pleasant enough lunch. After lunch me and my girlfriend decided to do some wine tasting. At $5 per person for 6 samples I thought it represented really good value for money. From what the other people doing the tasting were being poured I thought the samples were a really generous size as well. I love my wine and needless to say I was a bit excited! I was the dedicated driver of the group and my girlfriend is a small asian. She felt after the few drinks at lunch that the samples would be a bit too much for her. With me being the driver I also thought the samples would probably be too much for me and push me past the legal limit. Trying to do the responsible thing, I asked if I did the wine tasting if my girlfriend could share my samples (say, I drink half and she drinks the other half - there was definitely enough in each sample for us to do that). I wasn't by any means asking for larger samples to share between us. The lady running the tastings said I could try 3 and she could try the other 3. I again just asked if we could share each sample to which I was told that 'No, it doesn't work like that'. After spending $230 on a sub-par lunch I was a bit pissed off at this response. I'm not into heated arguments so I just said forget it and we left. Missing out on the wine tasting was the biggest disappointment for me of the day. In hindsight we should have just purchased the one lot of samples and shared them anyway - not like the lady could have done anything about it. Or if she did make a big fuss about it I should have just given her an extra $5 to make her happy. Disappointed to leave without a few bottles of wine to take home as well. Overall, I'm not going to be disappointed if I don't get back to Sirromet for another 15 years. There are a lot of really good reviews though and I do want to do the wine tasting so maybe one day we will give the place another chance to make a good impression on us.
  • While there is a long wait for food usually, the venue is so picturesque, it gives you a great excuse to drink lovely wine and imbibe in the stunning views. It is a popular venue so carpark is difficult to find and seating gets taken up very quickly. If seating is unavailable, bring a blanket and enjoy all the lovely spots to picnic on. I would suggest arriving earlier to avoid the queues. The playground is popular with the little kids but the lack of shade is an issue. Make sure you bring lots of sunscreen and hats for the children if you intend to use the playground. Bring old cardboard boxes for the children as the kids love cardboard sleighing down the hill. Despite all these little issues, we love going to Sirromet for the beautiful views.
  • Overall is good and this is a nice place to relax. But long queue to order food (stayed for about 15-20 mins), then long awaiting for a food (~50mins), self-service + dirty tables and average food quality. It's not worth ~$28-30 for main. I expected something more than a food court for that price.
