Our menu is inspired by our own family gatherings, sharing food, wine, company, the beauty of our landscape and the bounty of our Estate Grown produce.

We grow our own lamb, wheat, honey, citrus, eggs, seasonal vegetables & herbs. All our Estate produce is sustainably produced with minimal intervention and zero food miles in a reflection of the place it was grown and the people who made it.

Executive Chef, Jarrod Smith, has a passion for exploration and creativity. In addition to our estate produce, we source the best of the season's harvest, from far and wide, to enhance a vibrant, ever changing menu.

    We had a stunning afternoon at Lake Moodemere Estate. We were seated overlooking the lake, with plenty of space between tables. Our toddlers were able to roam and play, and the food and wine was phenomenal. We waited for each course with bated breath! We left feeling happy, relaxed and grateful to have this little paradise on our doorstep. We'll definitely be back!

    We always enjoy the ambience of this wonderful place, not to mention the exquisite food and the superb wines. The owners Belinda and Michael are so friendly and always take time to make you feel like old friends at their home. Dining outdoors by the lake in the shade of a magnificent old tree makes for total relaxation and enjoyment. Can't wait for our next visit!

    Amazing service from the moment we entered. Great family run winery who were all on hand to answer any questions about their menu and produce. The food tasted great and fresh hence the lack of food pictures, would highly recommend if you are visiting the area. Can’t wait to come back to check the summer menu out. Loveable doggies running around for the added bonus.

    We were lucky with a warm sunny Autumn day, so everyone was dining outside. The view of the lake throughout the river gums completed the ambiance. The entrees were excellent, but the main (a home style Lamb pie) didn’t quite follow suit. Deserts were also very good and matched with estate wines was a big plus!

    What a great find, we were seated outside on a glorious sunny day overlooking the water. We enjoyed the 3 course menu with matched wines and absolutely loved it. Afterwards we enjoyed a wine tasting and were very impressed so joined their VIP club so look forward to receiving many more wines in the future

    Had lunch here on Friday in spectacular weather, together with my partner and dog. We were made most welcome by the folks here and their dogs in kind. The outlook from our shaded outdoor table was magnificent, outshone only by the food, which was some of the best I've ever had. From the complimentary bread rolls and olives, to our entrees (I had the venison, he had the octopus) and mains (estate lamb / wagu). The presentation of all dishes was gorgeous; I'm not one to take photos of my food when eating out, but had to make an exception for these. We greatly enjoyed the 2016 Shiraz Cabernet with both courses. I can't really think of what more to say to accurately describe just how special this place is. I could have happily sat drinking wine in the warm dappled light and looking at the view for hours. My only regret was being designated driver!

Our wine tasting was a great start, followed by an excellent 3 course meal and beautiful wine. We felt very welcome and relaxed with the easy-going and informative hosts. It was a fun day.

    Gorgeous outdoor setting for some truly excellent dining. Inside was such a nice spot for the wine tasting - wines really yummy & owners happy to share their knowledge (by the way, yummy is my terminology, their wine notes were more descriptive!) Signed up immediately for membership and a purchase of 6 bottles to take away. Venison, waygu beef, fresh seafood and matching wines, great, friendly staff - whats not to love!
