With only a short 20 minute drive, Arundel Farm Estate is one of the closest wineries Melbourne’s CBD. The restaurant is set on a gorgeous 300 acre property that offers weekend dining, all week round functions, horse agistment and incredible airport views which have to be seen to be believed. It is hard to imagine that something so unique could be so close to the city.

Arundel Farm Estate was a lovely, relaxed way to catch up with friends for a lunch.
Staff were friendly accommodating, and the food well presented
I wasn't overly excited with my Rissotto - but it was OK
My friends all bought Arundel's local wines for themselves and for gifts - it was nice to support a local business.
I tried to take a friend there on Saturday for a cuppa (2pm) , but sadly not open. Maybe they had a wedding in progress - and lovely spot for that too....I'd definitely recommend the location and will go again

Lovely venue. Although a bit noisy and VERY busy. Food took a long time to be served as a result, but the waitress (Sophie) handled the situation brilliantly.

Absolutely loved everything! The first thing that hit me was how we were greeted. So warm and friendly. We were led to our table out by the stables,which was an amazing setting. We were told about the specials and made to feel so welcome. The food was incredible! Best roast lamb shoulder I've had by far. We were invited to the cellar door and had some tasting. Bought a box of the beautiful Rose and a box of the Shiraz. Honestly can not wait to go back and would recommend to anyone. Was telling my Mum about the estate and she said she used to take us horse riding there about 50 years ago. How bout that😁Thank you so much for an incredible experience. Regards Adele

Love this place! Atmosphere is absolutely amazing and the food is super nice. But the stand outs - brilliant customer service (so friendly, accommodating and just real people!) and the super smooth Shiraz.... my fave drop by far!

Service was excellent ( bar one or two staff members who struggled to smile). There was a lovely gentleman at the front who was walking the horse and obliged for us to pat the horses and take a few photos. Really set the scene for a memorable dinner for my daughter and me.

We loved the ambience, dining and watching the horses in the paddock and a great view of the airplanes in the background.

Staff were very accommodating ( moved us to a seat with a better view ).

Food was good- gnocchi was slightly over cooked but I’d def be back for the ambience.

Lovely use of the stables. We sat outside and it was beautiful looking over the hills. Inside was a little loud (only because there were so many people in there).
Staff were outstanding. They couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. We will definitely be back

We celebrated my mother's 90th birthday at Arundel Farm recently and it was a lovely afternoon.
The service was excellent and the food delicious.
All nine people in our party chose a different dish and everybody enjoyed their meal.
The atmosphere was relaxed and the surroundings welcoming. It feels like the country but is close to the city.
I have been here quite a few times for different types of events and would definitely recommend Arundel farm.

We attended for my birthday and we ended up having more people than when I originally booked the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. The food was great and I was pleasantly surprised with the wine. Will definitely visit again

Lovely estate and great food, perhaps seating arrangements or position of table 18 can be better thought out

Food and service was excellent. The only suggestion I have is that it is very dark in the street you turn into property. Maybe need more fairy lights like you have on the trees in the driveway, out the front as well. I noticed I wasn’t the only person to miss the driveway.

Lovely location and first time customer. Really looking forward to traditional Italian fare. Albeit out meals were very delayed in arriving, we were provided with complementary coffees, which can be commended because we didn’t complain and wait staff were on the front foot. Lasagna generous in portion but dry. In comparison, Gnocchi was fantastic but very small portion for the price. Coffee was great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Arundel Farm Estate. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The food was very fresh and delicious, and the wines were a perfect match. There were so many options on the menu that I want to try, so I’ll be back over and over!!!

Arundel Farm Estate is a lovely little winery and the food at the restaurant is delicious. The staff were very friendly and professional. I look forward to summer rolling around because I think it will be really nice to sit outside in the evenings.

What a fabulous place! You feel like you’re the English countryside on approach. On arrival it’s very ‘farm’ oriented. Once inside it’s a very urban cool environment with relaxed chill music. The service is great, food wonderful, and wine tastings were available. Just 20 minutes drive from the city. Very clean amenities. We booked our next visit before we left! Well done to the owners and talent. 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟
