Greenshades is a lovely destination for a relaxing weekend breakfast. The menu is varied but not too complicated. The food is well presented and tasty and the coffee is very good. The service is friendly without being too intrusive. I would highly recommend Greenshades if you are looking for something a little different away from the usual crowded cafes.

This is one of my favourite places to go when I visit my parents in Galston - any time of year. As part of a small, independent nursery. The owners are always friendly and personable. If going for dinner/evening meals on weekends - Yes you WILL NEED TO BOOK! (Unsure re: brunch or lunch). The small exhibits are of art... More

There is ample parking. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. It is a nursery with lovely gardens and exciting stone statues and ornaments for sale. The food was really good as was the service. I would recommend it. There is a lovely safe play area for children.

Great atmosphere. The outdoor garden setting is gorgeous...Greenshades is aptly named. Very generous sized meals. Quality and standard of dishes would be hard to beat. Excellent steaks, seafood dishes and quail according to my fellow diners. Loved the air con. Service is impeccable. We will be definitely returning soon.

Enjoyed a fantastic brunch with family. Staff very friendly and accomodating. We had a wheelchair and was great they had disabled access. Food was delicious.

This is a really lovely restaurant. It's not cheap but it's a cut above the other restaurants in the area. I don't go there if I only feel like a coffee - but I go there if I want a really nice meal. Sitting outside under the trees is glorious. I highly recommend this for atmosphere and food.

On the corner of a relatively busy roundabout for a country area this place is a little gem. 2 meals ordered, the salmon salad and baked chicken breast were lovely and both well worth the approximate $30 per meal. A fair menu and a pretty good wine list to boot. Eat in or outside, and outside you do feel somewhat... More

The outdoor garden area was a haven on a hot summer's day. The staff were welcoming and coped well during a busy lunch service leading up to Christmas. I had Barramundi...a generous portion, simply but deliciously served with a lemon and butter sauce. Others who had the curried beef pie, whiting fillets and a veal scallopine gave their choices the... More

A setting beautiful for a cold winters day or a sunny spring day. We had a indoor lunch on a very rainy cold day.Big potions of typical Italian food cooked with love. Kid and friendly staff.Children can enjoy this cafe when the weather is good as their is a nice out door play area too.
