This restaurant was built to take full advantage of the Brokenback Ranges and vineyards that are on display from its rustic verandah and floor to ceiling windows. We relaxed with a drink and watched the sun set on this magical settting, before venturing inside to eat. There's a choice of seating from traditional tables and chairs to comfy sofas to... More

The blazing heat that comes through the glass as you are trying to eat makes this place a definite no-go zone in hot weather. The food is all right, but nothing to rave about. There are many better places to eat.

Went there as part of a package deal with Tuscany Estates (next door - only a short walk). Great place to sit back and enjoy the view over the vineyards and savour some good wine and food.

Located right next to Tuscany Estate, it makes it very easy to have a casual dinner and a few drinks without having to drive or catch a bus. The views from the restaurant are excellent.

Pizza quite nice but not outstanding. Drink prices high, especially for local wine. Red wine was too warm - excuse was that the day was hot.

Met up with family here for a bite to eat and a few wines. Wine tasting is available near the restaurant. Nice view. The staff are lovely and you can sit outside and enjoy the view or sit inside, whichever you like.

Visited there for afternoon drink after a busy day. It has nice view. There was teribble smell (like fertilizer) outside, inside was good. Limitted beer selection. My daughter had ice cream, she said it was good.

A lovely place to relax and take in the wonderful view, This bar was a five minute walk from our accomodation at the Tuscany and is also in walking distance to the Maltilda Bay Brewery across the road and other wineries just down the road .We ordered a pizza to share which wasn't great but the customer service and surroundings...

Description
The Brokenback Bar is Tuscany Wine Estate's quirky child. The laid back menu of tapas, pizza, burgers, pasta and BBQs suits the relaxed character of the bar while the cocktails, local wines, sweet treats and ice creams add an interesting flavour to your dining experience. If you are looking for a great location and casual atmosphere to party to the night away, you've got it right here. The Gourmet BBQ comes with a selection of meat and seafood options such as whole Barramundi, King prawns, Rump Steak with a selection of salads, not the run of the Mill type.
