By the late nineties, the Paringa wines were winning numerous awards, and getting excellent reviews from the media, so it was time for Lindsay to pursue another vision, to open a restaurant. He wanted food that would match the quality of his wines. The Paringa Restaurant opened in 1999, overlooking the undulating slopes of the home vineyard.   

Recent renovations have added a striking Courbusian façade, and a grand entrance. Large windows at the back look into the winery, and sleek new furnishings create an intimate mood.


Our menu is a celebration of locally sourced, seasonal produce. The beef is generally sourced from Gippsland, the pork from the Western Plains of Victoria and the seafood is local. We love foraging for ingredients in the region. In autumn, wild mushrooms are on the menu; Saffron Milk Caps and Slippery Jacks, and throughout the year we add wild sea herbs, which we gather from the local shores such as Pig Face, Samphire, Sea Parsley and Sea Mustard.

Space restrictions in our dining room mean that we are unable to provide highchairs.   



We can accommodate small groups up to 8 guests. 

Public Holidays: 15% surcharge.

This is an example menu only and is subject to change depending on availability of produce.
While here at Paringa Estate we endeavour to accommodate requests  with special dietary requirements, we cannot guarantee completely allergy free meals.  This is due to trace elements in the working environment and supplied ingredients.
