We rocked up at 10am, not even sure they would be open on Anzac Day, and they were. Yay. A beautiful morning, sunny and a hint of a breeze. We both had “eggs and bacon”. Fantastic, tasty, a piece of art work. Poached eggs, with...More

Our group of eight stopped here for lunch. We have been here before and on that occasion, we did the sculpture trail, which for non art types was actually enjoyable and worth the walk. We ordered our range of meals, and thoroughly enjoyed them, every...More

We enjoyed another amazing meal at the Brick Bay Glasshouse restaurant last week, stunning food and great service. I have never been disappointed and Brick Bay will forever be my preferred place where I know I won't be disappointed.

Fantastic staff and service. Amazing setting. We shared the platter and a bottle of beautiful white wine. We would certainly come back and try some of the other dishes. Very relaxing watching the ducks.

The setting at Brick Bay is second to none. We sat overlooking the ornamental lake with sculpture and wild birds on display. Tranquil, relaxing and invigorating. The menu is great with a huge emphasis on their own farm produce. The wine was to crisp and...More

A lunch with overseas guests in a beautiful location and building was ruined by very poor service with staff that are more of the McDonalds type than a cafe/restaurant. The casual approach by staff in their dress code, general presentation, lack of interest and lack...More

Stunning spot matched with equally good food and wine. Would highly recommend to visitors of the area. Make sure you book though as they can be quite busy over the weekends.

Description
Discover a new world as you gaze down on The Glass House, hovering like a coloured jewel beside the vineyard, cantilevered over the waterlily-fringed lake. This unique building is open daily year round, where you can choose to taste our range of wines, enjoy a glass as you relax on our generous decks or simply purchase bottles to take home. We're excited to offer you our fresh new menu, showcasing local produce and seasonal ingredients. Do come and experience dishes that we love and flavours we are passionate about. Download the Menu> This is truly a building for all seasons as you watch the birdlife on the lake on a summer's afternoon, or feel the fury of winter as the rain lashes the lake and sends the overflow beneath you in a veritable waterfall. Metres away are the vines, with the building's transparency letting you possibly observe the pruning process, leaf-plucking, fruit thinning, and if the time is right, the harvest itself!
