My extended family was celebrating a milestone birthday. We were looking for a relaxed long lunch experience in a picturesque location around Heathcote. We were a party of 13 adults, with varying palates ranging from the plain to the more adventurous, and eight children (five years and under) and wanted to find somewhere that would be family friendly. We felt... More

The bistro is in a very picturesque location. The meals are at best average - very good if you are hungry however they lack imagination. Not to be avoided, just could be a little more creative and have a flavour profile that is a little deeper.

Lovely family run vineyard and bistro. Have been here twice now for lunch and enjoyed it both times. Recommend the James Flynn Red and the Vermentino white. The winemakers plate is a very tasty dish, but may not fill up the big eaters. Have a long lunch in the tranquil setting!

Flynns Wines and Heathcotean Bistro are a wonderful "hide away" wine and food experience in Heathcote an easy drive north of Melbourne Airport. Atmosphere is everything in Heathcote as it is now Australia's premium Shiraz wine growing area. The grapes are grown on red Cambrian shale and "not much" soil - very special, different and we tasted some of the... More

Took my mother-in-law out for lunch. Fantastic food, friendly staff & excellent wines (with pairing suggestions on the menu.) You can do your wine tasting first then choose the food that goes with your favourite wine! A gorgeous place to enjoy a Sunday lunch.

Great atmosphere, terrific country scenery and the staff very welcome and keen to help in all areas whether it is the wine tasting or the food in the restaurant. We enjoyed very... More

Our family group came to Flynns on recommendation, and we were not disappointed. Because of the warm autumn day, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the sun. My daughter and I ordered the seasonal food platter to share while the others ordered individual meals. All enjoyed with some lovely Flynns wine, as well as beer for the son,... More
