Food was excellent, view to the wineyard as well, a bit loud inside with music in the garden.

We arrived to find several Hens groups celebrating. This is more of a group/party place. The noise was awful and I couldn’t hear my husband and 82 hear old MIL speak from across the table. Had to raise my hand to get the attention from the waitress. Bottle of Wine was dumped on the table and we had to open and pour it ourselves. Adding to this my daughters food was dropped on the floor by the waiter and returned from the kitchen 30 seconds later telling us that is was newly cooked. It took my husband to call them out on this and they then prepared a new dish. We had to wait for my sons dish to be redone as well as it slipped on the plate when my daughters food was dropped. On paying for the meal I was expected to line up in a queue with the party groups to pay. Gave up and sat back down and the waitress allowed us to pay from the table. This kind of service and experience is completely unacceptable.

A lovely outlook over the vineyards while enjoying lunch. The wines are very nice and reasonably priced and a good selection on the menu. The only thing to fault was seafood a little over cooked but everything else was lovely

We had made a booking online, and on arrival we were told that the booking hadn't been received. (It probably hadn't been transferred from a computer to the hand-written list at the desk.) No problem; we were shown to a table, and we waited. And waited. Eventually someone showed up, placed a bottle of water and two glasses on the table, and left without saying anything. So we waited some more. After about fifteen minutes, another person arrived and took our orders. From then on, things started improving. Our drinks arrived promptly, followed almost immediately by the entrées. My wife had prawns in a creamy garlic and chilli sauce with a tiny portion of jasmine rice. Mine was a mélange of escargots sautéed in a ragu of shallots, parsley, garlic and red wine jus, and glazed with truffle oil, served on three slices of garlic baguette. Both dishes were attractively presented, and both were fresh and tasty. Wine matches are suggested on the menu, and we followed those recommendations. We weren’t disappointed. Things started to deteriorate around the time the live music started. The singer (somewhere in the venue; we couldn’t see her) accompanying herself on a guitar, has a very melancholy-sounding voice, and her repertoire seemed to consist of equally melancholy, often downright dreary music. Add to that the hard acoustic of the restaurant, and a nearby table of boisterous diners, and you have an unpleasant dining experience. Both of us had ordered Black Angus Scotch fillet, served with dauphinoise potatoes, steamed greens and a red wine jus. Nothing short of sensational! Beautifully presented, perfectly grilled and totally delicious, this was certainly the highlight of our meal. We decided to forgo the dessert, which we had been looking forward to, because by that time the noise had become unbearable. We mentioned this to the lady who had been attending to our table. She agreed that the noise was a problem, and commented that noisy guests seem to be an increasing occupational hazard for hospitality workers and other customers. In summary: Pros: Great food and wine, excellent presentation, good service (once it gets going). Cons: Noise. Recommendation: Go there. Go for the food, go for the wine, and go for the ambience. Just don’t go when there’s live music.
