This has to be one of the best Vineyard Restaurants in Australia. Located on top of the Mount the views are superb in any direction. The staff are top market and the food is top quality, well worth the trip and money. Entrée of Pan fried black tiger prawns were delicious. The Main of Venison and the slow roasted lamb... More

The food is good. Friendly staff. The restaurant is located in Borrodell Vineyard but the cellar was closed during our visit. We ordered red wine. However, they do not serve red wine of their vineyard but still it is from the Orange region. There is also cherry picking on our visit. So it could serve three purposes in one visit.... More

Fresh, good, honest food. Plating excellent. Quantity and quality deeply satisfying. Restaurant, being small ,are able to assist, adjust with special requests or needs. Did notice two other small functions/groups happening at the same time in another part of the winery/restaurant so did not impede on our personal experience. Sitting outside the views spectacular overlooking vineyards, fruit trees, valley in... More

Serendipitous find. Sat outside under the dappled shade of a plane tree. Shared the blue cheese soufflé/fondue - perfect - sad faces caused by the lack of a spoon or bread to scoop up the delicate chess fondue sauce. Soon rectified, but for that type of dish we shouldn't need to ask. The bread was crusty and perfect for wiping... More

A large group of friends (filling two long tables), and the staff couldn't do enough for us - they were marvellous. We started with a tasting at our tables (see review under the winery Borrodell Vineyard) which was a special treat, a very comfortable way to taste. And then there was the food. We all selected different dishes and covered... More

A very pleasant place to have a leisurely lunch on a beautiful day. Sisters Rock is situated in the Borrodell Winery overlooking the Towac Valley. The menu is limited in its choices as it changes seasonally. My husband and I had the Pork Belly to share accompanied by the Borrodell Apple Cider, it was delicious. Our friends shared the Seafood...

This must be my sixth visit to Borrodell. The food is delicious, the views exceptional & incredible wines! The staff this morning were wonderful & the champagne breakfast perfect, it was a little windy so we sat inside but still lovely to relax and enjoy the views. We cannot wait to come back and try the latest lunch menu.

Took my husband here for a birthday lunch and was really disappointed (and very different from previous visits). It served what I would describe as stodgy old people food. I struggled to find something on the menu that interested me and settled for a mushroom cobbler which mostly tasted of raw flour. Such a shame as this place used to... More

Description
Sister's Rock Restaurant is a family-run restaurant, located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, overlooking the Pinot Noir block. Enjoy the food & wine in a venue with glorious views over the slopes of the Towac Valley to Orange in the distance. Our philosophy of food has developed around a love of growing produce on the property and serving it straight to the plate, a true reflection of the seasons. We are a heritage apple and plum orchard, vineyard, grow cider apples for our own traditional cider and black Perigord truffles. All meals are accompanied by Borrodell cool-climate, award-winning wines. The menu changes regularly according to seasonal availability. Please phone to discuss the current menu.
