Eating here is a real pleasure, excellent produce (local/seasonal), well prepared. Five of us shared plates of venison wu=ith mashed potatoes, pork meatballs with pizza dough pasta (not to be missed), Parmigiano Reggiano cheese souffle and blue cheese broccolini tartlet. All beautifully presented with excellent accompaniments. I rate this restaurant very highly and I don't offer reviews easily. FoH Tim... More

We enjoyed a relaxed lunch of excellent food and wine in a most beautiful setting. The menu offered interesting choices for both a meat eater and a vegetarian with the servings a perfect size for lunch. The service was excellent and I really appreciated the friendly service and expertise in advice for accompanying wines. All in all wonderful dining experience... More

We arrived and there was no one in the restaurant. By the time we left, more than a dozen other diners were also eating there. The front of house guy (Head Patron) was terrific - knowledgeable, relaxed, a great salesman without being at all pushy! My partner and I shared soft cooked polenta with mushroom ragout, sticky port sauce and... More

The restaurant have very unique plates like rabbit and duck and they are very well prepared with good sizes. The food is more to share that individual plates. Very good service. You can try the wines before visiting the restaurant.

We dined there again third year in a row to celebrate our wedding anniversary. In the middle of winter it is a very romantic place to head out from the city to a warm and welcoming restaurant. Each year we have been placed next to the fire and we just love it there! So rustic with wonderful food, wine and... More

What a great spot! We had a fantastic lunch with really delicious food! Portion sizes are like a large entree and the idea is to order several and share - so good! The eel lasagne was brilliant! Deserts were super too! You can buy freshly baked bread there as well. I would recommend booking though!

My partner and I attended the cooking school and enjoyed lunch last week (the day was a gift from him for my birthday last year). We were disappointed by the school - we waited over 20 minutes after the start time before beginning, and although we had a great hour with the baker in the team learning about sourdough and...
