Delicious food - love the share plates. Had 4 dishes + 2 desserts for lunch between 2 of us. Enjoyed the Tenpranillo with it overlooking the vineyards. Great friendly service & atmosphere.

We had the 6 course degustation which ended up being 9 courses. Food was fresh and very tasty. Great atmosphere within the restaurant which look out over a valley of grape vines. Could have settled in for the entire day. Fully recommended.

We had the 6 course tasting menu and it was delicious. The wine flight to match was also a pretty good match. Great for an anniversary celebration.

We had a 'feed us' from the cellar door menu. The food was nice- one dish was amazing, the others missed the mark on balance of texture and flavours but they were all nice. Good value for a light lunch- serves are quite small so be aware that you may need to order more than recommended if you are big eaters. Lots of technique on display- just not quite balanced as well as could have been for us- personal preference.

We did the 6 course Feed Me option and the food was delicious, the meals were small but fed us enough so we didn't leave hungry.

Fantastic food and wine, lovely surroundings and bright , knowledgeable and attentive service. We went for a wedding anniversary lunch and will definitely be back. The wine tasting was well co-ordinated, very tasty and a lovely way to start our visit. Although not cheap for a Saturday lunch on the deck , both food and wine were of a very high quality, and well presented. We will be returning and have recommended it to others already!
