A popular gem amongst our premium selection of the trendiest restaurants right now

Our passion is great wine and great food. Since we first opened our restaurant doors in 2006, our goal has been to try to bring together all the elements necessary to create a memorable experience for our guests. A celebration of the incredible produce from the Mornington Peninsula, the knowledge, skill and attentive service of our chefs, waiting staff and sommeliers, a wine list that provides endless opportunities for discovery, that has been judged Australia's best, the relaxed ambience and views over our vineyard and the rolling hills of Main Ridge.

Our restaurant team set high standards of service polished, but in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Meet the Chef

Our chef's innovative menu is driven by the fresh regional produce from our local growers and farm gates, our kitchen garden and foraged items from the forests, rolling hills and expansive coastlines that surround us. The menu is continually changing and draws on experience working in some of the best restaurants in the world.

    Unfortunately we couldn’t go to TMBT due to the fire they had but they had transfer the booking to le Petite tracteur where they had also moved there whole operation to. It was lovely and we didn’t feel at all disappointed. Staff, service and ambiance were excellent, food very good, wine delicious. A great night

    We paid for the two course meal each and it was such great value for money with all the little extras you get such as pre entrees (though I do think they should give a vegetarian option as I did order and declare to be a vegetarian and still got served a three meal entree) and pre desserts! Wonderful service! They made my partners birthday extra special by putting a candle on his dessert plate and writing happy birthday - extra details which really impressed!

    A wonderful 3 course a la carte lunch in the newly refurbished restaurant. Food, drinks and service were top class as always. I loved the theatrics with the beetroot gnocchi and the goat's cheese in dry ice. Will definitely return!

    We had a Degustation at 10 Minutes by Tractor, when we were last in Victoria some 2 years ago; it was superb then and once again memorable. The service was most polite and professional by staff who were knowledgeable and take pride in the restaurant. The wines and courses were well matched a delight to behold and delicious to eat.

    Overall a fantastic meal, service and atmosphere. Good vale for money. We had the 3 course a la carte meal at $99 per head and it was plentiful with lovely extras and bread included in that price. We would certainly re-visit Ten Minutes By Tractor again.

    The man holding the wine tasting was phenomenal. He knew so much about the wines and was great to know he works on the vines year round. The service in the restaurant was pleasant. The food was amazing, but could use a touch of seasoning. Certainly not disappointed.

    Ten Minutes By Tractor is a must visit. It's fine dining with the appropriate prices attached. However - This restaurant is everything that you'd expect of this calibre! We will go again without doubt! - Highly recommend

About the restaurant

Three vineyards, a tractor and a restaurant

How did the name originate? Well, this Main Ridge property is defined by space. Three vineyards to be exact, that are located only ten minutes by tractor apart. Cute huh! On the property lies an immaculate restaurant, complete with varnished timber, big windows and incredible views over the vineyards and countryside. Effortlessly bringing together all the elements necessary for a truly memorable lunch and dinner chef Stuart Bell delivers an innovative and contemporary menu driven by fresh regional produce and his classic French training, with harmonious influences from Asian and European cuisines. Naturally, being surrounded by vineyards there is a killer wine list, one that's been judged Australia's best. Focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from around the world, here you can sample and compare different winemakers, regions and vintages in a relaxed ambiance.
