Four wineries before lunch certainly meant that we needed significant sustenance! A quick tasting at Cofield Winery next door and we settled down to eat.
The café is bistro like - light and airy and given it was Easter Saturday it was buzzing and busy. Waitress service was friendly although food did take its time to come up and after all that wine it meant I almost fell asleep waiting for it!
I chose the roast rump of Riverina Lamb with Mediterranean herbs and a Tuscan bean ragout. It was a decent rustic plate of food with robust flavours. The lamb was overdone for my tastes but the ragout had some great tomatoey and herby flavours and the lamb itself was of good quality. I enjoyed the heartiness of this dish.
Steve went for crispy skinned fillets of Brimin Lodge Murray Cod on a warm potato salad with crisp prosciutto, mustard mayo and green beans. Again it was rustic looking and a good portion size. The fish could have been crispier. We found the Murray Cod to be quite muddy in flavour so not my preferred fish but apparently this can be the case.
Overall it was a good place for lunch with decent food. I think we'd hoped for more though and our expectations were somewhat higher given the write up in the Good Food Guide. Had we just stumbled across this place without reading about it, I think we would have felt less disappointed.
