    Lovely Lazy Sunday Lunch
    Lovely setting overlooking the water in beautifully set room without a lot of noise and superb food and wines to make a very pleasant Sunday afternoon lunch. Would highly recommend, staff attentive to needs of dietary requirements. Plenty of Gluten Free options to enjoy and share with friends. Will be back and as Hobart locals said think this will be our new favourite out of town.

    The Shed Restaurant
    We booked The Shed restaurant for Saturday lunch. Would recommend the octopus and lamb ribs as share plates with the potatoes and greens. All were very tasty and definitely enough for 2 to share. We had the sparkling and Pinot Gris which are both lovely refreshing wines. It was a bit warm inside the restaurant as the plastic sides were all down and there were no fans on inside. The outside temp was around 21degrees and it would have been nice if the sides were up just a bit to get some air inside. Other than that, this is a great location looking over the Derwent River and the vineyard all around. Great spot and great food

    Modern restaurant with imaginative Tasmania food
    This a relatively new addition to Derwent Estate and impresses as a modern restaurant serving imaginative food in a very pleasant setting. The menu is modern and focusses on Tasmania's local produce and represents an impressive mix of small, shared and large plates. I had the BBQ Chicken breast, with barley, potato and leek sauce, pickled mushrooms and crisp vine leaf. This tasted superb and was beautifully presented. Derwent Estate wines are generally outstanding, and it was an added bonus to have their top wines accessible by the glass at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere was very conducive to a late-year business lunch, the staff were right on top of their game and it all culminated in a really enjoyable, relaxing and unhasseled three-hour lunch. Would I come back? You betcha!!

The food is so delicious and the serves are really generous. The service was excellent. Only draw back is it’s quite loud. The wine tasting was a lovely experience- allow yourself time if you want to taste all of them!

Went out to the winery for lunch in the shed restaurant… I had the fish which was lovely but my partner had the tuna tartare which was amazing! Also had the pumpkin caramel for dessert which was absolutely beautiful

What a beautiful location, staff are absolutely wonderful, with a great knowledge of the product. The wines are as always, beautiful. A credit to this wonderful winery. Cheese platter and view made it a wonderful day. Angela & Sandy were amazing.

I had lunch at 'The Shed" restaurant a week ago with a group of friends. The food was quite disappointing with such a trendy menu. Most of the dishes did not appeal so I decided to have the baked pumpkin with cauliflower jus. I wouldn't recommend this dish as there was too much pumpkin and little else, but I must add the savignon blanc was very nice. I enjoy eating out quite regularly at different restaurants and always find something appealing on the menu.
Also for some unknown reason the gardener decided to cut the large area of lawn right outside the open door/windows which made conversation very difficult.

We were greeted by the wonderful host, Sandy.m, seated and were soon starting a lovely wine flight accompanied by a tasty cheese platter. The wines were all delicious, approachable and well made. Even the Sauvignon Blanc, a wine we rarely drink, was sublime. We finished with 2 classic Tasmanian Pinot Noirs and then some dessert Rieslings. All in all, highly recommended.
