“Great Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Visiting Vin Cellar to meet with friends after work was a lovely experience. The Cellar was otherwise empty when we arrived and we were able to have a great chat with the lovely staff. We did a little wine tasting and found the staff very knowledgeable and passionate about the wines. A perfect setting to chill out and relax great atmosphere.

“Worth another try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Recently we dined with friends, mid-week at Vin. We had seafood, duck, steak and pork belly; all were special, the deserts were delicious. My pear and gingerbread was excellent and the other choices were a departure from the ordinary. Everybody was well pleased. The evening was an enjoyable one and we were able to dine and have a spirited discussion without interruption.
The background music was not intrusive and there is an impressive choice of wine.
Should you take advantage of the wine bar, the menu has a great range of starters that complement your choice of tipple.
We noticed an open fire hearth and lounging area at the rear. It was not lit on the night we were there, but the night wasn't too chilly either.

“Great food, great service. Very happy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We held a dinner meeting here recently and used the upstairs room which was great. Private but a good size for our meeting. The food was great. Well cooked, light and fresh. Loved the avocado cannoli! The meat was perfect and the service was discrete and performed in a very timely manner. The staff were very helpful and everything went well.
My only downside is that they don't take Amex and the parking is a challenge given the location. Other than that I would recommend them for this type of meal.
Thanks.

“Mmmmmm. Mmmmmm. Mmmmm”

Everything is delicious about this place. The wait staff are attentive, the food amazing and a great wine list. The only criticism is a lack of Australian beers for offer.


A must go
