We called in to the bistro for our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been happier with the service we received and the food presented to us, just make sure that you have a booking as the bistro is very popular.

We went for a Sunday lunch, it could not have been better. Perfect service from well trained wait staff and of course delicious food. Beautifully presented and good sized portions and of course wonderful wines. It's pricey but worth it.

I think the question is to do with the first date from a web site rather than the experience at the restaurant. ha ha.

Description
Polperro is nestled among the vines and shaded by ancient Angophora trees on a stunning 25 acre property in the heart of the famous wine region Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula. Our aim is to create a synergy between the vineyard and kitchen, and incorporate the seasonal harvests from the estate into the constantly evolving bistro plates. We are committed to an ethos that promotes a relationship between the landscape, the people and the produce. Our approach is to offer fresh, textural & seasonal flavours with an emphasis on where the food comes from and how it is grown. A collaboration between winemaker and chef ensures a new generation of food & wine offerings. There is a strong focus towards casual dining and drinking with service that is both informed and personable.
