Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The owner of the property greeted us and gave a great talk about the origins of the wine industry in the area, which Croatian immigrants to the location established. A very knowledgeable gentleman about the grapes and wine of the area.

Very good in general although pricey . Two of the party had pavlova for desert and had to use a knife to cut it,most strange it was more like toffee than meringue.

I ordered beetroot salad + duck breast and it was great! I inhaled it. My friends had the duck breast and market fish as mains. They loved their lunches as well. Reasonably priced. And the staff are friendly and hospitable. I'll definitely go back

We recently visited Soljians Vineyard to experience their Croatian Harvest Festival and a spot of lunch. We were warmly welcomed in by the staff and then took some time to wander around the fine wine garden. We had a very pleasant chat to Tony and...Tyler of Soljans before enjoying our delicious Croatian style lunch. Sampled some delightful wine while being entertained with live music and even a touch of grape stomping! A thoroughly entertaining few hours, so I can't recommend them enough. Their conscious efforts to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed didn't go unnoticed. Please take a trip to experience Soljans for yourself...you won't be disappointedMore

Soljans Estate Winery and restaurant was a perfect place for a week-day luncheon to celebrate a milestone event with couple-friends.

Yes you definitely need to book for Sunday lunch. Menu? We recommend the fish & chips, but there lots of other options. We also recommend the wine flight, available in red or white. Enjoy!
