THE Lydiard Wine Bar, voted Ballarat’s best restaurant twice in two years, has closed. The multi-award-winning eatery, which opened four-and-a-half years ago, held its last dinner on the March 23 weekend after the venue’s lease was not renewed.

Truly high class dining at this venue, many tasty entrees followed by main course and dessert. Staff are very attentive to your needs. Special dietary needs catered too also. Every serve different flavours and textures are a delight to your taste buds.

For a restaurant with such good reviews we expected their attention to detail to be much better. We had the taster entre which was nice but excessively priced. We sat in the lounge area to share - We had to ask for napkins, and were almost made to feel like we were an inconvenience, contrary to their website we didn't feel cosy at all! And then came the cheese platter. Frankly my 11 year old could have done a better job. Squirt of paste next to some cheese. The cracker bread stuff was burnt and awful. No garnish, fruit, nuts or anything other than cheese and awful crackers - for a wine bar I would consider the platter to be a signature dish - very poor value at the price we paid. This is the first negative review I have ever made in a restaurant - but we were travelling and googled reviews - selected this place over some other well reviewed places - not a winner for us.

Not great, I'll leave that accolade to the really outstanding restaurants but it's a Ballarat favourite and the food and service is consistently good.

We came to celebrate our anniversary and what a wonderful meal was in store for us.
We decided on having the degustation and loved every mouthful from start to finish. Taste sensations exploded in my mouth after each bite, the variety was amazing and the meal was very good value for money. We were totally satisfied at the end of the meal. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to our friends.
