    I had the vegan burger which was ok. My husband had the salmon which was under cooked and the sauce it came on was extremely bitter so unfortunately he left hungry. Staff were lovely though and the views are fantastic.

    Always enjoy a trip to Jack Rabbit.The view from our table was beautiful.The staff were very friendly and our orders arrived quickly. We were disappointed with the local squid.It seemed to lack flavour which is a shame because we catch and cook local squid and were looking forward to tasting this. However my choice of Pinot noir was delicious. Hope to see you again Jack Rabbit!!

    We had to sit inside when the weather lovely. Parts of my meal were not very nice due to the amount of fennel seeds in the capsicum. The black beans were dry and flavourless. I was really disappointed

    Jack Rabbit was superb, we loved everything about it!! The view was spectacular, the staff were friendly and could not accommodate us enough. They were beautiful to our kids and grandkids, such a beautiful and relaxing place to go with our whole family and enjoy amazing food. Will definitely go back again!!

    Basic cafe food with no pretence, safe plain food. Had linguine with prawn, harmless tomato based sauce - no garlic or distinct herbs and needed salt. Sadly no slice of bread to mop up the remains. Prawns plentiful but smallish and uninspiring. The three gummy shark fillets looked great but did not live up to just how great this fish can be. Sadly the fries were long cooked & lacking crispness and appeal - hard to get wrong. A little bit of rocket side salad had a nice dressing. The place was very busy so the menu & cooking successfully targets the needs of a basic pallet. Staff helpful and efficient at their job. Sensational views hard to appreciate through bistro plastic so have a stroll outside b4 you go. Jack Rabbit Chardonnay rather pedestrian, but this operation is not really acclaimed as a vineyard.

    Everything is excellent...from our online booking, choosing our meals, the food and the amazing views. A great place to show off the Bellarine to our friends & family. What a great place we live in!

    Excellent venue and views, food and wine exceptional but we felt the service was a little impersonal and could have been warmer. Overall, a pleasant experience and we'll be back.

    Had very high expectations however the cafe food disappointed across the board being bland in flavour and incredibly loud. Next time out there we will be in the restaurant only.

    Great service and great view. I guess I am a little boring because I prefer much simpler food. A really good pub type meal suits me. I find most places try too hard to be different. Maybe have just one choice that is more like a home cooked meal. eg Flathead tails or chicken parma.

    The veranda area was perfect even though it was very windy outside. The cafe curtains worked well and you could still see the view

    Although the views are beautiful, it's a shame the venue doesn't do table service and the written menu sounds great but the actual reality is underwhelming. Sorry Jack Rabbit!

    Casual dining with outstanding views. Mid week is delightful as it is not too busy. I have been on a weekend and it can be very crowded and noisy. Meals were of good quality and great value for money. Showed off well local produce. Wines very reasonably priced at cellar door prices.

About the restaurant

Food for every bunny

The House of Jack Rabbit is the cellar door and tasting room of the popular Jack Rabbit winery in Bellarine. Perched right on the tip of the peninsula, the café enjoys sweeping views of Corio Bay, even across to the You Yangs mountains. Relax on the sunny deck or in front of the Luminaire fireplaces nestled in the tranquil vineyard and sip on a vintage Jack Rabbit wine. The winery also has a more formal fine-dining restaurant; however the ‘House’ is a lot more laidback, with casual, café-style breakfasts, lunches, dinners and, of course, wine tastings. Manager Lyndsay Sharp is enthusiastic and friendly, on hand to help with any questions about the café, restaurant or the award-winning Jack Rabbit wines. You might come for the wines, but you’ll stay for the food at the House of Jack Rabbit. The bunny knows best!
