We visited Fairview on Easter Monday, despite having booked we were kept waiting while people who had not booked were seated at tables. The restaurant was very busy and service was slow, 25 minutes from ordering to being served a glass of water. The food was average although the two people in our party who ordered the special of the... More

We visited Fairview deli in March for breakfast. The breakfast menu appears rather boring and not intising enough. But dont be fooled by a piece of paper. The food is absolutly amazing, very tasty, the presentation of the food is beautiful and appetising. We were a table of 20, no one waited for their food. Everything was prepared according to...

Super-friendly staff served us in a beautiful venue. We had the croissant with trout and scrambled eggs and the Pyttipanna (veal and potato breakfast dish). Both were great, and the coffee was excellent. We were far too full to go on to the cheese and wine tasting - but will definitely go back for that! We will make a point... More

Great wine, cheese and chocolate tastings! Amazing views. Does get a bit busy with tourists, would recommend to go during the week or off-seasons.

We went on a Sunday afternoon for lunch and they were packed luckily we booked a table in advance. The food was delicious, the cheese platter the best we have had! Service was a bit slow but understandable as they were so busy. Such stunning scenery too!

Love the venue & scenery, great cheese & wine tasting together with the cheese shopping experience. Families also have the opportunity to let children play outside, almost like a picnic experience outside. The goat tower always makes for lovely family holiday photo's

I love this restaurant! The food is superb, prices reasonable, setting gorgeous. The staff are wonderful and always incredibly helpful. The fillet steak is utterly divine! And to add to that the cheese and wine tastings are excellent and the shop filled with something for everyone-will for sure recommend!
