Great food but the service really let the whole experience down. Non-attentive waitresses, poorly sliced bread and food took a long time to be served. I was told that the difference between a 2011 and 2014 pinot noir is that the 2014 wine is three years younger... ... ... oh and that the colour is different. By far the worst wine tasting experience i've ever had. At the end of it after we paid and tipped, we were accused of not paying for lunch.

Sheer incompetence which should be seriously reviewed by the estate's management. An unpleasant experience and a waste of time.

This is our 3rd time here and it always gets better for the delicious food and service from when you walk in. They had a lovely table by the window so we could look through the vineyards. We opted for the 3 courses which started with a delicious marron and finished with refreshing desserts. Definitely a must when in Red Hill. We will back again soon! Thank you team Paringa.

Recently spent a lovely long lunch here. It seemed like quite an adult venue with a sophisticated dining room. We enjoyed a 3 course meal and all dishes were tasty and elegant. Their wines taste great. Service was lovely. I recommend for adults but no so much or kids.

We visited for a birthday dinner as a couple and had the 8 course degustation. The food was divine with some extra tastes included at the beginning as well as a pre-curser to the pre-dessert and a post dessert! Really lovely flavours, textures and diversity of dishes all beautifully presented with subtle tonal changes in the colours on the plates.
The matched wines were excellent.
Service was delightful with the lovely Inga looking after us and - unlike many other high quality restaurants - we had a super comfortable seat in a corner booth and the dining room acoustics are excellent. The view of course is sensational.

We would highly recommend Paringa Estate for lunch or dinner. Lovely team of people who deliver a great experience.

This restaurant never disappoints. The food and service first class with great views over the vineyard. Every dish was fresh and beautifully presented and the wines fabulous.
Must be back for dinner next time.
