Good Food Guide 2019 Awards –
Pt. Leo Restaurant
New Restaurant of the Year
It has almost been one year to the day, since we opened our doors to the world on the 25th October… and what a year it has been!
The vision for this stunning property and the considered and meticulous planning is seen and felt throughout every inch of the Estate. From the beginning, the Gandel family’s vision was to share with the community their private collection of large-scale sculpture on a coastal site featuring an established vineyard and panoramic ocean views. We now have a truly world class venue with award-winning wines and hatted restaurants which are lead by an amazing team of people.
Dress to impress and celebrate the entire cup weekend at Pt. Leo Estate.
In addition to our normal weekend trading, Pt. Leo Restaurant and Laura are both open for lunch and dinner on Monday 5th November – Melbourne Cup Eve.
Enjoy Melbourne Cup Day lunch in Pt. Leo Restaurant, Tuesday 6th November. Take a stroll through our Sculpture Park and delight in the view of our vineyard and Western Port Bay. Taste our award-winning wines in our Cellar Door or a spring cocktail from our bar while watching the race that stops the nation on one of the two large screen TV’s.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Estate for the 2018 Melbourne Cup! Bookings are essential.
Please note a 15% surcharge applies to the Pt. Leo Restaurant menu on Public Holidays.
We are thrilled to announce that works have begun on our new all-weather wine terrace. From mid-December guests will be able to enjoy live music, great wine and amazing morsels regardless of the weather. For the time being, it is business as usual – so come and enjoy!
