Book the restaurant


In response to a growing demand for the food and wine experience, the Tahbilk Wetlands View Restaurant (formerly Tahbilk Cafe) was opened in 2005, built on the backwaters of the Tahbilk billabongs. The Restaurant provides visitors with an authentic experience, relaxed and in keeping with the Purbrick family’s food and wine ethos and presents a more modern touch to Tahbilk’s otherwise historic aspects.

We are pleased to announce that the Wetlands View Restaurant is open and Cellar Door can once again offer tastings. There are significant regulations that we must all abide by, but it is so nice to be able to welcome wine club members and visitors again. The restaurant has a maximum 50 people indoors. There is an outdoor deck which can accommodate up to 36 people, weather dependent. For these reasons bookings are essential.
