Amazing food and great wine! fantastic service with a beautiful vineyard setting. Fabulous for children to run around the vineyards. Highly recommend. If you haven’t been here you must.
We have come here with friends for the second time. Food is amazing, wines are lovely, can be a bit noisy inside but well worth a visit. Will keep coming back.
Too noisy. Need to do something about chairs scraping on floor and acoustics in general. Bit expensive but good quality food.
Great lunch. Excellent food friendly service. Will go back again. Wine list is good and goes well with the food. Excellent for sharing with friends
Eight of us had a late Sunday lunch here for dad’s 84th. We were greeted with smiles all round and our table was quickly set as we sat down. The day was hot, we were seated inside with air conditioning looking out through large windows. The olive trees looked splendid! Food is made to share which is exactly how my family enjoys eating together. Plates were presented beautifully with wonderful use of colour. Everything was delicious but the family especially liked the pork buns, scallops and carrots. Four members did complimentary wine tasting pre lunch too. This restaurant is quite simple but offers complex dishes with a smile in an absolutely stunning setting. We’re already talking about our next visit, but plan to go hungry and try lots more good. Beautiful photo opportunities outside.
The food was really impressive! Delicious chefs menu. A negative for us is that we were seating overlooking the car park, with no view of the vineyard. This was surprising given I had booked well in advance for a special occasion. We arrived early for lunch, but weren’t offered a wine tasting. The waitresses were great, but the front of house appeared disinterested.
Service was excellent - friendly and efficient. Food was awesome. We got the chef’s platter and it was very filling and tasty. They gave us a table with a view of the rolling hills which made everything perfect. Highly recommended.
Absolutely gorgeous food that was presented so beautifully. The staff were terrific, wine was so good. Will definitely come back for a third time. Twice is not enough.
Positives - casual unpretentious atmosphere in a pretty little part of the world. Fabulous food and very pleasant wait staff. Negatives - acoustics are so poor it's an assault on the senses and very much distracts from the potential of the experience. Although suspecting that the building's original purpose was to accommodate wine tastings only, I feel that addressing this issue could only be a positive investment. Unlike the many other staff members we interacted with, the fellow conducting our wine tasting prior to having lunch appeared disinterested, disorganised and unwelcoming. Hopefully not his usual style of presentation. With so many choices on the Peninsula not a plus for business.
We took international visitors to The Cups. It is extremely noisy and the service is very poor. Although we expressly said that we did not want to share the dishes, and for each course, the food was brought out singly over a 20-30 minute period. The worst part of our experience was one member of our group who received no main course at all. After waiting for it to turn up, we were told that it had been given to another table (!) and there would be a twenty minute wait. This person finally ate his main course 30 minutes after the rest of us had finished. The restaurant did say they would not charge for this error, but it did not make up for the poor dining experience which also included: - table napkins requested twice (then retrieved from another table ourselves); - no steak knives brought with the steak dish which could not be cut with the regular knife - wait staff reaching across others to place dishes on the table - very ordinary wine - overpriced sourdough bread - $10 for 5 small slices - main course dishes were served on cold plates which meant the food was cold before finished. The food itself was well cooked, well presented and tasty. However, it did not make up for the abysmally poor service.
2nd visit and had the tasting menu instead of a la carte. All the dishes were beautiful though we each had a dish we didn't particularly like, so would stick to a la carte next time and order what we will both enjoy! We brought our dog and sat outside on a nice warm day. The view was amazing!
lovely, tasty food
Absolutely delicious food and wonderful vista. Thank you for looking after us so well.
The tapas menu enabled our booking of 4 to experience the tastes and delicious offerings.
Would be nice to have heaters/ blankets for diners in the outdoor area
Outdoor area is lovely, trying to chase the sun was difficult with limited seating
Second time I have been and would come back again
Pleasant place to come for brunch or a glass of wine and some cheese with friends
Good good but not very accommodating to vegetarians. Our waitress seemed very tired and inattentive.
What an absolutely lovely lunch experience prior to visiting the hot springs. A perfect start to a perfect day.
