This was our second visit to this restaurant and it has grown in offerings and scope. they now do their own wine and provide a wider range of meals principally based around tapas style meals or gourmet pizza based on fresh local produce. Well worth a visit.

We went to Ottelia for lunch rather than going to one of the other restaurants and it was the best decision we made. The food was exceptional and given the ingredients were all from their own garden made it even more special. The tasting plate was fantastic and the pizzas were as good as they get. Thanks for being a... More

The eccentric owner who loves bookings is a hoot. Our visit was exceptional. Servings of tapas type meals and pizzas are well priced. We had twice cooked spring rolls - very crunchy with lots of flavour and Asian inspired pork spare ribs too start. Yum!! We then shared a pizza and had lots of trouble deciding which one to pick....

we had a lovely visit with the owner and had a great time during our wine tasting. Lunch had finished but we will visit while we are still in the area. Menu looks good and features seasonal ingredients.

We stopped to have some wine at Brand's Laira and were recommended to eat here. It's like a small shack and they're known for their wood-fired pizzas. We actually had two pizzas, gnocchi (which was so delicate & tossed with fresh tomatoes) & smoked prawns (fabulous!) Their mixed salad was so good that I ordered 2. Good value & great,... More

Known originally for their pizza, and now also for their cellar door Ottelia. My partner and I visited for Lunch one a day of wine tasting. Service was quick and food delivered promptly. We ordered 2 pizzas, expecting to take some home with us... however they we're delicious we ate them both! Unfortunately we didn't have time to try any... More

A selective interpretation of both the conversation & the situation, I believe the 80 plus happy customers we served for lunch that day would not agree with your point of view. More
