Visited Brick Bay yesterday for lunch with friends. We were warmly greeted and the waitress was friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful lunch and the rose’ was delicious. A lovely place to spend time.

Great food and service and the sculpture walk a must. We had dogs as well and there aren't many places where these family members are welcome, so a good place to visit with your pooch.

This is a fabulous place. The glass house is gorgeous, the platters for lunch simple and delicious and to have a sculpture walk in nature to follow is very special

Lovey relaxed lunch sitting outside under the glass roof. The rose is very good with the platter for two. There is also a sculptor walk around the grounds. We will come back for sure and do the sculptor walk and sample more rose!

Great food in a pleasant location with the added bonus of local wine. Include a visit of the sculpture trail or just go for coffee and a snack.

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!
