Our 1st visit here the other night to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Whoa was very impressed with the meals. There were 6 of us (4 had been before) and said Crab Farm Winery is always a delight to visit - certainly didn't disappoint. They were very, very busy with a wedding and a 40th celebration - but the service was... More

Had money to spend on wines but staff not interested. On such a big weekend with so many visitors you would think businesses would want to capture heaps of revenue. Suggest sacking your staff and starting over.

We very much enjoyed our lunch here, accompanied by two lovely glasses of Crab Farm rose each. The staff were attentive, the lunch platter for two was varied and tasty and the calamari was delicious. Would definitely go back.

We had a group of 16 yesterday at the winery, the food was excellent the staff were fantastic. Overall the meals were reasonably at approximately $27 per main. The wine was expensive to drink there but cheap to take away

Last week along with my husband and our little boy I went to visit Crab Farm for a tasting. Conversation went like this: Me: I think we'd like a tasting. Staff Member: I don't think we can do that. Me: Really? (Thinking he's joking) Staff Member: Yes. Me: Can I ask why? Is this a timing thing? Staff Member: Sort... More

Amazing premises with a unique style, I felt like we were in the deserts of New Mexico or somewhere like that! Very friendly staff, who were clearly busy preparing for a wedding but they still made us feel welcome. We rotated through three staff members, which indicates that most of the staff are informed enough about the wines to takeover... More
