Farmed barramundi that was a super sloppy texture, fried calamari that was bad fish and chips shop standard, gnocchi swimming in oil to the point of revolting and frankly we didn't feel too well that night, so doubted the freshness of the food. Despite taking almost a complete plate of food away, the waitress never even asked if something was wrong with the meal. Needs a professional chef!

Dined here on a Sunday night and was surprised that there were only two tables in for the night.
However, the waitress was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection.
Lamb rump and Salmon were our dishes with a side of vegetables.
These were preceded by a great bread, with oil and balsamic and dukka.
It was quiet but the view over Melbourne is exceptional and they have staff that really look after you.

We dined at Samson Hill Winery Saturday night with our two granddaughters. Food was excellent and service was amazing given the restaurant was overflowing with guests.
Children were catered for nicely and the waitresses worked tirelessly the whole evening.
Thanks for a great night out.

A lovely place to have a glass of wine and enjoy the breathtaking view of the city from Samson Hill Estate. Our server was attentive and courteous; the Chardonnay a perfect compliment to a perfect day. This is an ideal place to bring visitors, or a small group of friends.

Lovely views, attentive service and a consistent menu make Samson Hill a favourite place for my friends to catch up. Located between Kangaroo Ground, Research and Warrandyte it's central to all. And they can and will split the bill, how easy is that! A venue we keep coming back to time and time again.
