About Russo Estate Winery & Restaurant

Enjoy a chilled glass of wine and fine fare overlooking the beautiful vineyard and waterfall at Russo Estate Winery & Restaurant on Holden Road in Diggers Rest. This elegant family-owned establishment delivers sweeping views of the vines through a full glass frontage while dining indoors at crisp white clothes tables, or take a seat alfresco and feel the balmy breezes. With a Modern Australian menu brimming with lunch and dinner choices, expect stunningly plated starters such as scallops and potato cake with chives, crème fraiche and Yarra Valley caviar; before a main affair of grilled pork cutlet with braised lentils, potato fondant, mussels, chorizo and apple cider jus. Be sure to leave room for a decadent dessert of Russo Gaitime – crunchy nut praline honeycomb and Anglais sauce.

Ladies day out - big build up sad ending!
I love Russo Estate and always giving it a rap when I can but today I was embarrassed and very disappointed taking 6 of my friends for lunch. We were first to arrive but took an hour to be asked for drinks- meals were nice but were served so slow there was another hour before we were served main course and not all together ? We had to ask for our second drinks that we were hoping to drink with our meal but that didn’t happen either due to the fact we were now late we were then asked to move so the tables could be set for dinner! We decided to go and pay the bill what a disaster! Was Overcharged and the splitting of the bill was so confusing- I have done this before but never this bad. My friends were disappointed and probably won’t come back ?? I hope things improve before the warm weather and crowds begin??
