Straight out: this was the most delicious food i have ever eaten!! My partner and i ordered the gnocchi and the pork belly for entree. We also ordered the white choc cheesecake with salted caramel for dessert. Although slightly pricey, it was absolutely worth it!

Excellent service and food. Could not fault anything (probably apart from the rocky chairs). Excellent prawn entree, steak and chicken mains were good. Loved the sauces and the roasted pumpkin with the chicken is to die for. Would have been happy to have a whole plate of pumpkin by itself! Great way to finish the meal with dark chocolate fondue.

As usual the meal was superb. Entree- scallops with cauliflower purée and king prawns with garlic and parsley butter to start. Soooo good. Then duck with plum compote and golden kifler.potatoes. Melted in the mouth. Even though we were quite full we decided to be decadent and shared a dessert of the best sticky date pudding with caramel sauce and... More

Very noisy inside but outside is lovely if you are there for lunch not sure for dinner. Entrée was lovely, my duck as main could have had more flavour, my husband also said his venison lack flavour also. Dessert was lovely the streamed banana and pecan pudding. Lovely to go there for a special occasion as can be a bit... More

Attended Amanda's for Friday lunch at the recommendation of our local vigneron. The restaurant was quite busy and with who we think were local patrons. It didn't disappoint. Beautiful ravioli filled with crab and served with champagne sauce which we both enjoyed. Preceded by the liveliest freshly cooked bread rolls. I finished with the curry of the day which was...

We had a great meal at Amanda's . It's at the end of the road so you pass a few resturants to get there but with the time. Lovely setting with nice light setting, not too bright. Very friendly staff and the food was great. We all ate too much but it was hard to resist. We had great wine... More

We dined at Amanda's on a Monday night as it was one of the few restaurants open early in the week in the area. Located in a rural setting, the décor is rustic and lovely and there is an option for couples to eat on the balcony overlooking a small vineyard. The menu is fixed price for two or three... More

Had been looking forward to dining at Amanda's to celebrate my 50th birthday on a Monday night with a friend who is a gluten intolerant vegan. She had dined here a couple of times previously and had said that the staff had been more than happy to adjust meals from the vegetarian menu to suit her dietary requirements. So after... More

A wonderful atmosphere set in the middle of the vineyards. The menu is not very extensive however ... although there is a vegetarian menu also offered. Desserts are to die for! As would be expected a great wine list offered.
